The downsides were the parking, as its not clear you have to go round the back; there isn't enough space if all the rooms (3) have a car (how... More

Lovely people and perfect location for beach and town alike. Breakfast was everything you could want and perfectly cooked. En suite a little small and had just a shower but I believe the other rooms are bigger.

My wife and I chose The Swallows for B&B for an early Spring two-night break on the East Devon coast and were not disappointed.

The room was simply furnished but spotlessly clean, comfortable and also warm, which was welcome as the weather was... More
