Awards

We've been incredibly successful since opening just over five years ago.

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

We're proud to announce that we've just been named THE Best B&B in the World! (out of almost a million) for the second year running by TripAdvisor in their annual Travellers' Choice awards, which are based on independent reviews.  We're the first B&B to achieve a world number one ranking two years in a row in the 18 year history of the awards.  

August 2020 brought more good news as we won Gold for Best B&B 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 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.
