Peachy pad. Concoct a lavish continental breakfast, laze on a red sofa, fish, cycle the Exe Trail, walk the Jurassic coast & East Devon Way

Read guest comments

The beautiful East Devon Way brings you almost to the door of this smart, new B&B for the independent-minded. Up the exterior stair is your bright, refreshingly opinionated studio with cleverly arranged workstation and wet room with double-headed shower. The funky red leather sofa and big bed (or twins) opposite French windows invite lazing, star-gazing, Merlin-spotting. You're free to concoct your own lavish breakfast beneath the Italian lamp whenever you fancy. Oak-floored inside, larch clad out and with kind, interesting owners across the flowered yard who'll advise on all things local, from sea and river fishing to Exe Trail cycling.

Rob & Annie Jones:

  • go crazy for birds in the middle of an RSPB bird reserve. Common, heath, woodland, sea, estuary, marsh, farmland and garden -we have them all.
  • Jurassic coast, estuaries, moors, unspoilt rural Devon and you are in the middle of an AONB
  • walk or cycle or mountain bike from the front door across miles and miles of open country along green lanes and explore the East Devon Way footpath - no need to use the car
  • Raleigh country - a special piece of Devon preserved through the centuries by one family.
  • Victorian farm buildings lovingly restored with local original materials.

"A real find! Great location for the coast, lovely local walks and charming towns to visit. Combining luxury and comfort, the modern loft is beautifully designed with keen attention to detail and windows on three sides giving light and countryside views. Great facilities and the breakfasts keep you going all day. The home-made cake and bread is delicious. Fantastically comfy bed, lovely linen, a warm environment (we visited in November) and beautiful d├ęcor makes this for an exceedingly relaxing place to stay. Great hosts who help you to get the best out of your stay. Thoroughly recommended"
