Ratherton House
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We stayed at Ratherton House over May bank holiday weekend as we were attending a wedding in the area and we wanted to write a review to share our wonderful experience at Ratheton House. The house itself is stunning, each room is individual in its character, all with super comfortable beds with the nicest linen. We stayed in Daisyland and our walk in shower was fantastic. As we were a large party we actually had every room in the hotel which meant that we made use of the communal living areas, which are also beautifully decorated. It was a little rainy to use the pool area for me, but some of the boys had a dip and loved it.
Kath and Nick were incredibly welcoming and the whole team made us feel right at home. The breakfast selection was fantastic and we really appreciated breakfast being cooked to order when we needed it. Especially the day after the wedding when this was more like brunch for half of our party. We would highly recommend a stay here if you are visiting the area. We would certainly stay here again. Great value for money for a top quality standard.

We've just spent a wonderful weekend at Ratherton house and none of our group of ten can rate it highly enough. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable, the house well laid out and the grounds delightful. But the jewel in their crown is the incredible level of service. Nothing too much trouble and a a genuinely warm and caring reception from Cath and the team. We will definitely be back soon! Thank you

Just returned from our second visit to this beautiful B&B, and we weren't disappointed. Enjoyed a wonderful selection at breakfast, great nights sleep in the beautiful room overlooking the fantastic countryside, and made great use of the guest lounge during the wet April evenings.

We would thoroughly recommend a visit for anyone heading to this beautiful part of the country, you couldn't wish for a warmer welcome.

We stayed here in September and are so glad that we found this place, we were made to feel extremely welcome. Kath showed us to our room which was the largest one and it had lovely large windows which looked over the garden and fields beyond, it was spotlessly clean and a huge comfortable bed. Breakfast was cooked to order and was really good home cooking the house itself is beautiful full of character, the guest lounge is also lovely in fact I cannot praise this enough it made me wish it was my house and we could live there, The added luxury of a heated outdoor pool was a big bonus and it really was warm like a bath. They even did some ironing for me and if that isn't good service I dont know what is we would definitely return here in a moment and if we are ever in the area again this is where i want to stay. I could go on and on singing their praises as there are many little extras that I haven't even covered.

A wonderful few days away staying in a beautiful B&B in Holsworthy, Devon. Hosts Kath and Nick were kind and very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble! Brilliant breakfast choice with local, fresh ingredients. They have a wonderful little 'tree house' at the bottom of the garden which is comfy and quiet - perfect for reading a good book! Pool was always heated and clean, and loving 'pool side' furniture which was ideal for lazying about in the sunshine! Bedroom had wonderful views of the surrounding fields, and was decorated beautifully! Wish we could have stayed much longer, will definitely be back ASAP!

Ratherton has a lovely home from home vibe. The rooms are spacious, modern and extremely clean. Big beds, newly fitted bathrooms, TVs, Blu Ray players and lovely views of the surrounding country side.

There is a lovely pool and sun loungers for a perfect afternoon in the sun. There is a spacious lounge perfect for rainy days. Holsworthy town and Bude are only a short distance away.

The staff are extremely welcoming and made me feel right at home.

Would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice British getaway!

A huge thank you to our hosts Nick, and his wife Kath for welcoming us too their fabulous bed and breakfast.Which lies in the heart of lush green rolling hills, and views to cherish.A warm welcome and lovely Devon cream tea with home made scones started our stay nicely. We were staying in the lovely large family room with views of the pool and of the meadow across the garden. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom gleaming and the tea, coffee and tasty hot chocolate piled high. The children loved the tennis court which was very well maintained as was the solar heated swimming pool which never dropped below 29 degrees ! the use of which was never governed. Breakfast was served at your chosen time serving lovely local yoghurts fresh seasonal fruit [ strawberries, raspberries and blueberries] and a delicious cooked breakfast, the children chose Belgium waffles with banana and chocolate sauce! Fabulous !!

Room Tip: All rooms have high ceilings and are really spacious
