Green Gates Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #22 of 40 Braunton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2011

Had I have read other reviews of Green Gates before booking, I would have been sceptical due to the liberal scattering of superlatives! I will try not to add too much in that regard, but I really can't praise Sarah and Dan enough. Naturally warm and inviting, they make you feel welcome from the moment you step over the threshold.

The accommodation itself was top-class, with our room being immaculately presented and well away from any traffic noise. The location is very good, situated just outside Braunton town centre and within easy walking distance of a number of restaurants. The beaches of Saunton and Croyde are within a few minutes' drive, with the secluded Putsborough being around 20 minutes by road.

Breakfast was excellent, I could barely get out the door for the amount of toast and tea that kept appearing to complement the locally-sourced full English!

I understand that Sarah and Dan have only been the proprietors since early this year, but it is clear that they have got off to a tremendous start. We would not hesitate to recommend the Green Gates, and will definitely be returning.

We received a warm welcome on arrival from Dan, and a much appreciated cup of tea and cake. Our room ( and the shower) was immaculate and tastefully decorated and furnished. Green Gates is conveniently situated only about five minutes from Braunton. Dan helpfully provided information about the locality and restaurants.
The breakfast was truly excellent! The choice was amazing and the food was cooked and presented perfectly.

The B&B is in a great location, near to the beach and within walking distance of some lovely restaurants and the local shops. The rooms are furnished in an up to date and comfortable style. All areas of the B&B are immaculately clean and the host, Dan, is fantastic, extremely welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was of a high standard and there was lots to choose from. I would definitely go back!

Having decided to visit the area last minuite we were unable to get a reasonable room in Croyde or Woolacombe - but now we are very glad! This bed and breakfast is perfect - lovely location, parking, clean and tidy, naturals host nothing was too much, good breakfast variety, and very reasonable pricing.
Thank You for making our short stay so enjoyable and very well done you have it down to a T.
Would be quick to recommend and hope to be back

Green Gates is unusual in that it is owned and run by a young couple who go the extra yard in ensuring that you have a pleasant stay - everything and everywhere was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was just as good as you would expect in a top class hotel - Thank you Dan and Sarah ... We will be back!.

Room Tip: We had the `suite` which provided plenty of space
