Absolutely beautiful house, felt really homely, very clean and Dorothy was amazing, so welcoming, friendly and accommodating, made us feel so comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and very relaxed. Had a lovely night sleep in a warm room with the most comfortable bed ever. Really close to Exeter just a 10min drive. Would really recommend. Oh... and has lovely biscuits! Haha!

Lovely B and B in rural area but close to Exeter. Pleasant room with en suite. Enjoyed delicious cooked breakfasts made to order. Would recommend staying here and is ideal for visiting daughter at the uni here.

We stayed here for 3 days. Welcoming owner. Comfortable room. Ample breakfast. My husband advises fishing lakes had good swims on one side, with large carp basking in sunshine close to or above double figures. Note, you do need to take a landing net and unhooking mat. Close to Exeter for tourist attractions/shopping

Many thanks for your review of South View Farm and coarse fishing lakes. Yesterday anglers had the added enjoyment of seeing three kingfishers flying over the lakes.

We recently spent 4 days here with friends occupying two bedrooms which could be turned into a larger family room by the adjoining door. We can only comment on our room, which overlooked the garden and lane.

Beautifully maintained house both inside and outside, impeccably clean, warm welcome, great breakfast. I don't fish but if you do this place would only be somewhere you would normally dream about. I was very lucky to find this haven in Devon. Extremely quiet
