Spent two nights at this superb B&B. What an experience. SO comfortable, attention to every detail, spotlessly clean and a most delicious breakfast each morning. The owners Libby and Simon are totally hands on and made us feel so welcome. Thoroughly recommend Swan Hill House. Thank you for a wonderful stay

We had room 3 on the ground floor and were able to park at the rear of the house. We were greeted by the owner who helped take our bags to the room. A twin bedded room and like the other areas of the house was decorated tastefully and was spotlessly clean. Real milk in the fridge, greeted with tea...

Stayed for 3 nights with my 12 year old daughter to enjoy an Easter getaway to Devon and to do some fossil hunting. Most amazing B & B with wonderful welcoming owners Libby and Simon. The little touches of freshly made macaroons in the room to have with tea and coffee and homemade fudge given at checkout. It was spotlessly...

This was our second visit to Swan Hill House and it most certainly will not be our last. To put it simply; Simon and Libby have redefined the bed and breakfast experience. Beautifully decorated and well appointed rooms, the most delicious breakfasts, Swan Hill House is more like a small boutique hotel than a bed and breakfast. If you stay...

This was our 4th visit. We were in room 6 which is huge and very comfortable. Simon and Libby think of everything - it would be hard to fault anything at all. The highlights are the stocked fridge and home-made biscuits in the rooms and of course the wonderful breakfasts.

We absolutely love this B&B and so have been back quite a few times. If I had to say only one thing about Swan Hill House it would be that their attention to detail is outstanding. They seem to be continually reviewing how the experience is for their guests, and making any changes they feel is necessary. (For example when...

We were thrilled at Simon's warm welcome, help with luggage & friendly offer of tea & home-made cake on arrival. The room was lovely, every detail very well thought out - & even included home-made biscuits.
