The Spinney is a lovely 18th century guest house (it was previously the village rectory) in north Devon, in the delightful village of Shirwell. The location is beautiful, peaceful and relaxing (making for a great night's sleep!) and makes a great base to explore the lovely Devon countryside! The welcome at The Spinney was very warm, the service unobstrusive and very friendly, the accommodation modern and comfortable and the breakfast delicious. The couple who own The Spinney gave us some great tips on where to go locally to see sites and to eat and in their guest house, they have thought of all the little touches that make a good guest house into a great one! We had a wonderful 3 night stay and could not find fault with The Spinney - we definitely plan to go back! It's a real find!
