This is our second visit and again we were blown away! We were warmly welcomed and we love 'our' little family room, cosy and warm and with a utility room down the hall way with jugs and fresh milk which I personally love. The girls were so excited to see Frances they ran up to her for cuddles at breakfast... More

We were nervous to stay at a B and B with small children but we were made to feel totally at home and no trouble. Excellent selection of gluten free offerings for breakfast and went out of way...

Very clean accommodation. Breakfast ok. My only criticism would be that the en suite was very dated and situated in a louvre doored cupboard. Colyton is a lovely friendly place and worth visiting. We woukd visit again but probably stay somewhere else.
