Awards Dec 2020.JPG

We've been incredibly successful since opening six years ago.

Listed on this page are some of our many awards and accolades.

We were named THE Best B&B in the World 2019 & 2020 (out of almost a million) two years in a row by TripAdvisor in their annual Travellers' Choice awards, which are based on independent reviews.  We were the only B&B to achieve a world number one ranking two years in a row in the 19 year history of the awards.  We have been in the Top Ten in the UK for the last 5 years in a row.

August 2020 brought more good news as we won Gold for B&B of the Year in the national Visit England Awards for Excellence at a virtual live streamed ceremony.  This was the culmination of a long process after being crowned Best B&B in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards, Devon Tourism Awards and the English Riviera Awards.

We are (virtually) attending the national final of the Federation of Small Business awards in May 2021 after winning Self-employed / Sole trader of the year award for the South West region.

In April 2018, we won Unique B&B of the Year for Great Britain at The AA B&B Awards.  

Come and see for yourself why we've won so many awards.
