A beautiful house with a warm welcome (and cake). Absolutely spotless and comfortable. Slept like champions in a wonderful spacious room with a garden view and started our day with a scrumptious breakfast. Loved it.

A great choice for our two nights stay
We were so glad to have chosen a small B&B for this trip, rather than an anonymous hotel. Conveniently situated for Barnstaple town centre, supermarkets and getting out and about; friendly and helpful owners; lovely, recently renovated bedroom, large en suite with really nice walk-in shower; good COVID-19 protection measures.
