We stayed here following a Mary King event for 2nights, it is a lovely farm, the room was lovely and clean with all the amenities. Breakfast was divine each morning and lovely prepared. Thanks Julie for making us feel so welcome and i am sure we will be back in the future when we are next down that way.

There is no other Devon B and B to compare with Gatcombe Farm. Julie is the gold standard, she does it so well. The welcome is warm and totally genuine, with drinks and homemade cake to greet you. The rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable with beautiful quality bedding, toiletries and hospitality tray. Everything you might need for your stay is...

Just what one looks for in a B&B. Very friendly and helpful. Super, generous breakfast. Lovely bedroom. Close to lots of interesting places and some good restaurants. A real working farm with young calves housed close to the farmhouse.

This farmhouse B&B is gem. It is a short drive from Beer/Seaton - 5 mins. The room was beautifully decorated, clean, well maintained with touches of luxury. Breakfast was cooked to order with plenty of choice, quality ingredients and served in a guest dining room. Julie was a great host and it was amazing to be able to see some...

B&B is not something we do frequently, but probably would if they were all this good! Good quiet location, comfortable, with friendly and accommodating hosts. The breakfast was excellent, plenty to choose from - well prepared and presented, but not OTT for quantity which was welcome (so many places totally overload the plates in an attempt to impress).
