This is such a special place to stay!! Nicola is a lovely person, the accommodations are great and the local food she provides to us is delicious!! This Bed and Breakfast only serves local food and it was an amazing experience to see how the area can provide good quality of products.

We spent four nights at the Birds Rest with Nicola looking after us. Not only did we have an exceptionally light and airy room but the bed really is superb and the duvet and duvet cover were so different to what is normally provided in guest houses. We had an adjacent cosy conservatory at our disposal where we relaxed and... More

I stayed one night on a cycling holiday in June and wish I'd stayed longer. Lovely comfortable b&b, easily accessible from Totnes. Nicola is a warm, generous host who made me feel very welcome and cooks a great breakfast! Beautiful surrounding countryside and nearby pub The Cott Inn does fantastic food too.

I stayed in Bird's Rest for one month this summer. It's a really heartwarming experience. Chris and Karen helped me fit into the local life. They introduced a lot of lovely people to me, invited me to join their picnics and family dinners, gave me a good tour around Dartington and Totnes. We hiked together, went to bar together and...

I was really just a passer-by. I stayed there one night before my course at Schumacher College and one night afterwards. They didn't even have a 'proper' room for me, they were booked full. But Chris and Karen went out of their way to make room for me in the study, to make me feel at home, and to help... More

Accommodations were simple and clean with shared bath. Breakfast was provided at flexible hours with consideration for vegetarian diets including homemade vegie sausage and French press coffee and was served in a dining area adjacent to the sleeping quarters. The location is in a quiet residential neighborhood a bit out of Totnes but is a beautiful 40 minute walk to... More

Karen and Chris were welcoming and helpful hosts. Breakfast (with vegetarian choices) was freshly cooked to order, and very good. Guest accommodation was in a separate annexe, which included two bedrooms, a bathroom and dining room. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The rate charged when I stayed was exceptional value. There was a large, clean bathroom with walk in... More
