Hello everyone,

We hope you are all keeping safe and well in these challenging times. We wanted to send a message from Roger and myself (Brenda) at West Down B&B Guest House to say how much we have been missing all our lovely repeat guests and being able to welcoming new guests to our lovely B&B guest house in Glorious North Devon.

We are now open following the latest government guidance and are confident that we are providing a safe environment for our guests.

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. Be sure to look out for my favourite recipes which I will be sharing on the blog and on our Facebook page.

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 2021 but until then please stay safe.

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