We have just returned home from a 2 night stay at Kerrington House. The house itself is beautiful and has been styled and furnished to a high quality. Our room and bathroom were spacious and spotlessly clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. Fiona was a perfect host and the breakfast was delicious. The location was ideal for a short...

We came down to Axminster specifically for a meal at the River Cottage with Hugh as a 50th present to my brother-in-law but Hugh cancelled the night before and we were most disappointed, we still went for the 8 course tasting meal and had a good evening but not what we had planned. Fortunately though we had chosen the right...

A lovely B&B in a great location for those visiting River Cottage / Axminster. Host Fiona very friendly but not intrusive. Rooms very large and luxurious, with four poster beds, huge bathrooms with roll top baths, lovely touches such as toiletries. Breakfast excellent.

This was an excellent central location but away from the hustle and bustle of busier locations on the Jurassic Coast. The cleanliness and attention to detail in the rooms was second to none that I have experienced. I would love to go back again. The breakfast was fresh and cooked to order. All the staff we came into contact with...

My wife and I stayed at the Kerrington House Hotel and were immediately impressed with the welcome we received and the wonderful building we had arrived at. Fiona was a delight to meet and I couldn't believe that she took our suitcases up to the top room on the third floor. The room was large with a lovely bathroom en...

This is a nice period property with a lovely garden and a good place to stay in Axminster. Positive points... The owner is very nice and accomodating. Our room was spacious and our bed was comfortable. The bathroom was quite large. The breakfast is potentially very good. Negative points... The toilet seat in our bathroom was a bit worse for...

fairly expansive twin bedded room with additional seating. Cupboard for clothes hanging was quite tight, to open. very quiet location even though next to a main road. Host, Fiona was charming and obviously wanted to please. Breakfast was plentiful, although would of liked eggs, fried and scrambled to have been cooked for longer.

My husband and I stayed for two nights in September and really enjoyed our short stay. I loved the room decoration and it had everything we needed, the breakfast was great with a nice selection of cereals or hot food. We have also never stayed in a place where the owner has been so welcoming and friendly! Would definitely recommend.

Thank Elise A
