“What a find!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Found Up The Creek by chance when looking for a stop-over on our way down to Cornwall. It was perfect for our family of four in every regard, so much so we would like to go back for a longer stay! Carol & Keith couldn't have been more hospitable (even when we arrived much later than expected!). The summer house was great and the kids enjoyed every minute. The pub across the road was also great. Can't recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: Just book it - you get the whole upstairs to yourselves.

Carol & Keith only have one set of guests at a time. You get the whole of the upstairs of the house to yourselves which includes a good sized double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a separate bathroom and a fairly large lounge with tea & coffee, cakes and a jug of fresh milk in the fridge. You even have the use of the summerhouse at the bottom of the garden complete with sun loungers. The views from the lounge and the garden are stunning. The rooms are clean. The furniture and ornaments are not modern but add to the charm and may even make you feel nostalgic. The breakfast is excellent. You park on the drive. Excellent countryside walks from the house. There is a gastropub across the road for evening meals. Both Carol & Keith proved very warm, friendly hosts and made us feel very welcome. Good VFM. Wish we had booked for longer.

My brother and I stayed at Up the Creek for our annual painting holiday,Carole assured us before we arrived there would be lots to see and paint.
We weren't disappointed!
The upstairs suite is self contained with a lovely view from the lounge at the rear over the estuary.We sat in the garden for two days and painted.
Carole and Keith are the perfect hosts, both thoughtful and friendly ,giving us tips of where to go what to look out for.
The rooms were comfortable and the breakfasts kept us going through the day.
All to be highly recommended.
We have booked again next year already.

There is nothing that is too much trouble for Keith and Carol. There are only ever one set of guests staying at the cottage, which means that you get the use of the lounge all to yourself! Who usually gets a lounge when you are in a B & B? The view of the estuary is fabulous and there is a summer house and Barbecue included in the rental so you can make the most of the garden views and weather. There are lots of little touches e.g. books in the children's room, binoculars for bird watching, that make this place very special. Keith and Carol and Up the Creek puts others in the shade - we absolutely loved it!!!

We booked last minute for the bank holiday weekend so we were quite surprised that we found a room. A very warm, friendly welcome and tour when we arrived. There is a double and twin room upstairs and a private living room with stunning views over the estuary.
The shower was brilliant! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. There is a really nice pub just a stones throw across the road with good food and drink.
The breakfast was delicious, and there was a huge range to choose from.
We were very impressed and are now hoping to make a return trip in the summer.
Thanks Carole and Keith! :)

Room Tip: Both of the rooms are great.

Just returned from a three day stay at Up The Creek, definitely a home from home. Because of the warm welcome and friendliness of Keith and Carol we have visited many times over the past six years. Comfortable accommodation including the choice of two bedrooms, your own lounge with lovely views over the creek and surrounding hills. Just listen to the birds first thing in the morning coupled with those gorgeous views, together with a lovely breakfast, what more could you wish for. Tea making facilities including cake every day and a fridge has just been added to keep the milk and your drinks cool in the summer. Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and lovely beaches such as Slapton Sands and Blackpool Beach are just minutes away. All adds up to a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Both rooms are good and have their own advantages, we tend to choose the rear bedroom as there are g...

Bed and Breakfast doesn't really sum this place up. Keith and Carol are lovely and caring hosts. They are in it for the enjoyment of having satisfied and happy guests. Although there are two letting rooms (plus one bathroom and a lovely living room) upstairs, they only ever have one group staying. So my girlfriend and I really had the whole upstairs flat to ourselves. Carol believes its not fair to have two different groups sharing the same bathroom. Now thats great customer service!

We will be back again and be recommending to all!
