“Lovely setting - so peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed 6 July 2010

Stayed two nights as a birthday treat for my partner. The house is at the end of little road in the middle of the propper north devon countryside. Living in london but from the country originally this was exactly what I was looking for. Propper peace and quiet and some downtime in beautiful surroundings
Rosie our host has a beautiful home with a strong sense of design running through it, the room we stayed in itself was large and spacious, overlooking the lovely garden and pool. ( which is heated and lovely after a day exploring north devon)
Breakfasts were fantastic with homemade cereals/ bread and the best fry up I have had in ages, the ideal start to your day.
We were sad to leave after 2 days as it was bliss!

What a lovely generous review of Catsheys - thankyou!
I'd just like to point out to anyone reading that the pool is SOLAR heated and therefore susceptible to weather changes. But it does raise the water temperature enough to make it a comfortable swim most of the time!

My husband and I wanted a plush B&B experience and we got it in droves. The location is remote but perfect by virtue of being well away from noise and other distractions. With plenty of nearby pubs and restaurants in the nearby villages and the coast not far away too, you are prefectly located to enjoy all apsects of Devon.
When we left we nearly shed a tear at the thought of leaving such a beautiful place behind. Rosie making us breakfast was a high point as the food is so fresh and tasty and with so many options we never set off for the day woth an empty stomach.
We visited Belinda the pig and her piglets which was fab, they were so cute and it was nice to also see the chickens that gave us such a wonderful egg for breakfast.
The interior of the B&B was so amazing and well thought out in its art and design, it left us very inspired to redecorate our house!
All in all a wonderful stay and we are definately coming back before we have our baby for some relaxing couple time.

This was my second stay with David and Rosie Ames and my wife's first. As expected, this vist exceeded our expectations of warmth and friendship with sumptuous breakfasts, forest walks, feeding the animals, learning about the nature - in a totally relaxed atmosphere.

We look forward to visiting again to chill and be ONE with this beautiful area of the world.

This is the place to stay if you'd like a relaxing and extremely peaceful environment. It's a bit off the beaten path, but suppose that's the entire point! Rosie was a great hostess and offered many suggestions for us in the local area. The room was large, the bedding was great, everything was clean. The bath was surreal...only the faint sound of birds chirping and some cows in the background. A truly peaceful and relaxing experience.

We had a wonderful stay at Catsheys. Rosie and David made us feel welcome, and were so helpful.
The room was beautifully decorated, over looking the amazing garden.
Breakfast was a real treat. You must ask for the scrambled eggs - out of this world
We will definitely go back in the future to try thr pool

Following another visit to Catheys, Rosie and David our hosts could not have been more welcoming. This perfect Oasis is in a secluded spot, just outside the little North Devon town of South Molton, with its quaint shops, Good pubs and award winning tea rooms. Catheys itself is a tranquil retreat like no other. The huge grounds are great for exploring and keeping fit, with a dip in the pool to finish the day. Rosie produces all organic products, from home made breads, organic fruit and veg to freshly laid eggs (Scrambled bantam eggs are amazing!) The rooms are very spacious, beautifully, contemporarily styled and immaculately clean. We have travelled to many places around the world and this still remains one of our favourite retreats. Sheer Bliss.

The room was big and beautifully appointed with an equally spacious en suite. Lovely organic toiletries, super comfortable bed. Brilliant breakfast, with lots of options. Superb garden. Delightful hosts were very helpful with lots of local info, even recommended events for us in Cornwall which is where we were headed after we left them. Look forward to returning next time we are in Devon and would not hesitate to recommend to both family and friends. Quite tricky to find so folllow Rosie's advice/directions carefully.
