Welcome to West Down Farm B&B Guest House accommodation in North Devon

Hello everyone,

We hope you are all keeping safe and well in these strange times. We wanted to send a message from Roger and myself (Brenda) at West Down B&B Guest House to say that we are dearly missing all our lovely repeat guests and the ability to welcome new guests.

We have decided due to the current Covid situation that we will reopen again in March to welcome you all back. Spring is such a lovely time of year to visit Glorious North Devon when the countryside wakes up from its long winter sleep and begins to blossom with vivid colours across the moors, valleys and hedgerows.

In the meantime, we would like to keep in touch so we will be regularly updating our Facebook pages and our website blog. As you all know Roger and I like to keep busy so we will be working in the kitchen garden or cooking food. Look out for my favourite recipes which I will be sharing on the blog and on Facebook.

We always love to hear from you so be sure to drop us a message on Facebook, by email or simply give us a ring to catch up.

We cannot wait to see you in March but until then please stay safe.

Love from Brenda and Roger – West Down B&B Guest House.
