Had the pleasure of a recent overnight stay at Emms Cottage. Both Pam and Vic extended us a warm welcome and went out of their way to make us feel at home. The bed was extremely comfortable, just what we needed after a week camping! Breakfast was also delicious; highly recommended.

Pam and Vic went out of their way to be incredibly helpful, picking us up at the train station when we arrived, dropping us off at the Britannia Inn for dinner, driving us to the Eden Project, and dropping us off at the train station when we left. They went above and beyond what is expected of a B&B host.... More

This is a quaint cottage with a beautiful garden, close to Eden Project and the sea. It was spotlessly clean and comfortable. No problem with getting Wi-Fi. Had a superb breakfast. Excellent, friendly service from Pam and Vic, particularly in relation to getting to Eden Project (they even provided us with a home-produced print out). Slight downsides are that the... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in early September, after driving from North Somerset and being let down at another B &B. Vic and Pam are wonderful hosts and full of local info. Nothing was too much trouble for them (even helped dry some of our washing) and would thoroughly recommend their cottage.
