Offering Peace and Comfort In the Devon Countryside
"Needfresh air with peace and quiet?"
"Need to get away from it all?"
The old proverb "Breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince, dinner like a Pauper" has more than a grain of truth in it, so we pride ourselves on serving a large traditional full British breakfast that will set you up for the rest of the day!
We only have two guests at a time so can offer you individual attention with, unlike most other B&B’s, breakfast being served at yourconvenience at a time when youwant it. *
(* Anytime between 07:00am and 12:00 Noon)
Breakfast as it should be taken .... cooked by someone else, but not too early and eaten in a leisurely way whilst reading your complimentary newspaper supplied as part of our service, but which you normally don't have time for correct?
So go on .... let us spoil you!
Why not start the day with a fresh cut grapefruit, perhaps with freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice as well ….. Yes, from real fruit; the difference in taste with that poured from a carton is indescribable!
Fabulous muesli from 'Dorset Cereals', absolutely crammed with nuts and dried fruit.
We only serve the best meaty sausages, mushrooms and bacon purchased locally
Our own free range eggs, compliments of 'our girls', as well as our home grown tomatoes in season are also available.
Our own freshly baked bread, toasted, with oodles of butter with in our opinion the best marmalade ever, Frank Coopers 'Oxford' Original Vintage Course Cut.
Loose leaf tea in a pot with a tea strainer ..... quaint perhaps and considered by some to be an 'old fashioned' way of serving our national beverage, but the difference in the taste more than makes up for the inconvenience.
Freshly ground coffee, or if you prefer a selection of various herbal teas is also available.
THEY CAN'T ALL BE WRONG!

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last,
"whats the first thing you say to yourself?" "Whats for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "Its the same thing", he said.

And finally another man that knew a thing or two about the 'delights' of a good breakfast ...
"We plan, we toil, we suffer -- in the hope of what? A camel-load of idol's eyes? The title deeds of Radio City? The empire of Asia? A trip to the moon? No, no, no, no. Simply to wake up just in time to smell coffee and bacon and eggs. And, again I cry, how rarely it happens! But when it does happen -- then what a moment, what a morning, what a delight!”
