We had two night break at The Beeches & found Christine & Ian to be friendly & welcoming hosts.
Nothing too much trouble to ensure a good time.
The selection for breakfast was all you could wish for, Christine’s cooked breakfast was “so nice” .

From the moment we entered The Beeches we realised this was a gem of bed and breakfasts. The room was spacious and immaculately presented, furnished to a high standard. The en suite bathroom excellent. The choice of breakfasts offered was extensive and generous, with home made granolas and jams/marmalade.
The property is in a quiet location yet accessible to a local bus stop with buses running along the coastal road to other resorts and towns. The hosts Ian and Christine are most friendly. If there is a "Premier League of accommodation then The Beeches tops the list.

The Twinroom with the both seawiew and wiew to their beautiful Garden with Flowers, Trees,
Scuirrels and Birds was a perfect Place for both rest and exploring the Area.
Christine and Ian were so friendly and serviceminded, so it is a pleasure to recommend «The Beeches»!!

Ian & Christine, what can I say other than a fantastic 4 nights, your cosy double room was fabulous and so much room, beautiful bathroom and so much space to put your clothes. The little touches like an umbrella, tissues, cotton balls ect, the delicious home made cake and biscuits yummmmmmy. Your breakfast was second to none, full English just the right amount. Ian,Christine you were the perfect hosts, thank you we will be back I'm afraid 😄

We had a long weekend in Dawlish, made so much better by having chosen The Beeches. Ian & Christine were warm and friendly, we had very spacious accommodation and of course the scrumptious breakfast. We will definitely stay again next time we come to the area. Thank you.

We were so lucky to find this wonderful B&B just 7 minutes walk from our relative's home in Dawlish. Christine and Ian were very welcoming, and our twin room equipped to the highest standard, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The view through the trees over the immaculate gardens to the sea beyond, an unexpected bonus. Breakfast was extraordinary, with a superb menu that would put 5 star hotels to shame, we were literally spoilt for choice. Excellent value for money and somewhere we would love to stay again. Brilliant!

Was sooo nice to see Ian again after many years. We where made wellcome as soon as we arrived. No chance to unpacking first no coffee and cake and a long chat and the chance to meet Ian’s wife Christine. So lovely. The Deluxe Room well what can I say? It was home from home so spacious clean inviting comfortable. All those little extras like cotton buds and toothpicks. What ever you could need was there. Breakfast was amazing. Home made Jams and chocolate and so many other items. Let’s just say I did not leave empty handed. It was my 50 Birthday and was presented with Birthday cakes and a lovely candle in my birthday breakfast. We had a fantastic stay and will defanatly be back soon. Thank you so very much. Xx

Just returned following a long weekend at "The Beeches"-great location for touring this part of Devon.
We stayed in the suite lovely room fresh,nice bathroom, plenty of little touches. This couple have thought of everything.
Then the best start to the day is a good breakfast you wont find better - quantity, quality and variety.
From the warm welcome and the welcome cup of tea (best tea in Devon).

We have just returned from our 4th stay in 4 years at The Beeches.
Once again Christine and Ian made us feel very welcome and as in the past the rooms (THE TWIN UPSTAIRS and THE CABIN VIEW downstairs) were spotless and had everything you could need.Excellent value for money.
You must taste the breakfast to believe how good it is and now it has Christine's home made Granola and the home made jam will have you asking for another round of toast.
Thank you for a wonderful week and WE WILL be back next year.

We have just left the best B & B in Dawlish, for the THIRD time in 3 years.
The Beeches offer's a warm and friendly welcome from host's Christine and Ian, with tea, coffee or cold drinks upon arrival and don't forget the home made biscuits.
Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers) had two rooms the twin and the deluxe, both with stunning views over the sea at the back of the house.
Ian and Christine make you feel like you are family not paying guest's in their beautiful home. Rooms are spotlessly clean and have every thing you could need from hair dryer's to cotton wool and tea and coffee making facilities with more of those delicious home made biscuits.
Breakfast at The Beeches has got to be tasted to believe how good it is, from fruit juice, yogurt and cereals to the Full English..... every item is fresh and cooked to perfection.
Once again we have had a wonderful stay with Ian and Christine and are looking forward to our next stay with you.
Thanks for the guided tour and for looking after us so well.
Clare, Dennis, Paula and Jennifer


Aug 12th 2013

We had the pleasure of staying in Christine and Ian's fabulous B & B for a week in the De Luxe Suite. It was so big and roomy with lots of wardrobe space and draws plus a comfortable settee. A great room to sit and relax in after an active day. The sea views are wonderful especially on a sunny day.
On arrival we were offered coffee and biscuits and made to feel very welcome.Everywhere was spotlessly clean and it was great to come back each day to home made biscuits left in our room - a great personal touch. We enjoyed them so much we purchased some to take home.
The breakfasts were superb and whatever we chose off the menu was cooked to perfection. The best poached eggs we have had any where!! There was also a good selection of fresh fruit and yoghurts plus cereal and freshly made toast with lovely homemade jams and marmalade.
Thank you Christine and Ian for making our holiday so enjoyable and for giving us handy tips, such as good places to visit and eat at. We will be returning for sure. fantastic B and B.

This was our first stay at The Beeches and will not be our last! We found Chris and Ian very helpful and friendly. The room was light, modern and clean with plenty of cupboard and drawer space, added to by personal touches that resulted in a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The food was excellent and included vegetarian options. Highly recommended!

Tracy Smith

Jul 14th 2013

Ian & Christine have achieved perfection in their quest for customer satisfaction. Everywhere is so clean and modern. Everything you need is in your room, and very well presented. We had the impression that nothing would be too much trouble in order to please their guests. By the way, Toni wanted me to comment on the excellence of Ian's toast!

May 28th 2013

This was our second visit to The Beeches and yet again you did not disappoint us. Great downstairs room/suite beautifully decorated and very comfortable and spotlessly clean.The breakfast was 5* and a great choice and start to the day. Ian and Christine are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. This will not be our last visit and we highly recommend The Beeches for a great stay.

Our stay at The Beeches Bed & Breakfast was very enjoyable and totally relaxed. We stayed in the deluxe room and it was very spacious and comfortable and the attention to detail within the room was first class as was the cleanliness of the room, we settled in very quickly and really felt at home. Ian and Christine were the perfect hosts very welcoming, sociable and attentive. The Breakfast well what can I say it was exceptional there was a very good selection it was plentiful well cooked and very tasty I am missing it already. If we are Dawlish way again there is no contest it would be the Beeches Bed & Breakfast every time, it is in a class of its own.

Thank you Ian and Christine for a very enjoyable stay, kind regards Mick and Wendy.

Jul 22nd 2012

Second visit to The Beeches. This is a wonderful place to stay and Ian and Christine are perfect hosts. We were in a different room this time but just as comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts are first class. We will always comeback to The Beeches when visiting relatives in Dawlish.

Jul 20th 2012

What an absolute gem of a place run by two wonderful people. Chris and Ian were both there to greet us when we arrived on June 18th. They have a beautiful house converted for B&B and they are rightly very proud of it. The rooms were exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed in the smaller of the two, while my folks had the larger room (which everyone should try to stay in). The breakfasts cooked by Chris and delivered by Ian were scrumptious (I had the full English). There is also cereal, porrage and fresh fruit available. I would highly recommend The Beeches to anyone and strongly suggest you don't stay anywhere else - this place is awesome. Thanks for a lovely stay. By the way, did you ask your friend in Lake Oswego if they know of our frind's hot air balloon business called Portland Rose Balloons (

Jul 7th 2012

we came ot the beaches and as others say the rooms are bigger than excpected the picturs dont tell all
the bathrobes didnt fit any where near but we had our own to go out to the bathroom
ian and chriss didnt mind geting non smoked bacon but the day we where leaving as we where feeling unwell we where hurried out and althougth we had two days left no refund at all was offered AS the terms say even if someone else takes the room but the guest house was nice and smart the only thing lacking was a room for you to sit in other than the bedroom
also a list of places to eat other than the smugglers arms as the beeches dont have evening meals


Jul 4th 2012

Christine & Ian

Thank you for a wonderful few days, and as always a wonderful breakfast to start the day with, oh and the use of the umbrella's.

Ian and Christine, thank you so much for a lovely stay in your super home - put this house in our area and you are talking of a property worth well over one million pounds - it is beautiful and extremely comfortable. Your hospitality is exceptional and we would not hesitate to revisit your home if we return to the area.

Our second stay with Christine and Ian was again a lovely experience. Really felt like home. Nothing is ever too much trouble and the our room was both comfortable and attractive.The dining room looks over a delightful garden area and glimpses of the sea appear through the trees. Breakfasts are a real treat and Christine and Ian always find time to have a chat. The situation is very central to so many places of interest and accessible for public transport and some lovely walks, whilst being a very peaceful spot. Perfect. Thank you Christine and Ian

We very much enjoyed our week-long stay with you in July (2010). You have a beautiful house in a quiet location and we recommend it to others. You are conveniently very close to Teignmouth, Dartmoor and other south coast tourist locations. You provided excellent breakfasts, and also you offered good advice for trips etc. Best of luck to you in the future.

We stayed at the Beeches after being recommended by the tourist information in Dawlish as we had not booked anywhere in that area. They could not have told us about anywhere better, although it is a 4 star we think it should be more. The welcome from Ian and Christine was very friendly and we felt very relaxed. We stayed in the deluxe room which was the best room we have stayed in and we have been in 5 star hotels. The attention to detail was second to none and it was superbly clean, a very comfotable bed which we didn't want to get of. The breakfast was very good lots of choice and nothing was too much trouble. Unfortunately we were only there for one night but I wished we could have stayed longer but we were travelling on up to Bath. The setting is also beautiful even in the rain, very quiet and relaxing. Thank you once again Ian and Chris, and we wish you every success - and will be back to stay with you agsin.

Have just spent an absolutely superb week at the Beeches Guest House run by some truly very friendly and genuine hosts namely Christine and Ian who went out of their way to make our special celebration of our 25th Wedding Anniversary even more memorable by all the added touches. We stayed in the Deluxe Suite which was a huge room with sumptious bed, two double wardrobes a large chest of drawers and dressing table with drawers plus bedside cabinets with yet more drawers so plenty of room for all your clothes and personal belongings which made my day. Then the ensuite not only had a big bath but a shower as well so we were certainly spoilt for choice, again both rooms so well decorated and clean yes please note very clean. The view from the window overlooking the garden and sea was fantastic. Then of course comes the best cooked breakfast we have ever had certainly worth getting up for even though as the week went on we were struggling to get out of such a comfortable bed.
Overall everything about our stay was faultless and Christine and Ian went out of their way to make us feel at home in their beautiful Guest House. We are certainly looking forward to staying there again.

We've just come back after staying for a week at The Beeches and wanted to say how much we enjoyed it. Ian & Christine are brilliant hosts, very friendly and always happy to help. We stayed in the Deluxe room which certainly lives up to its name. Its beautifully decorated, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The full english breakfast is delicious and cooked to perfection but if you don't want a cooked breakfast there's always cereals, fruit, yogurt or toast to choose from, everyone is catered for! If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Dawlish we would definitely recommend The Beeches.

My partner and I had a really lovely stay at The Beeches earlier this week. We had the deluxe double bedroom, which is stunning! Attention to detail, very clean, modern, fresh and comfy. We felt very relaxed and could have stayed there for weeks, especially in the very comfortable bed!
Ian and Christine made our stay very pleasant, were flexible with our arrival time and served a tasty breakfast in their lovely dining room, overlooking the garden and sea.
Certainly no more Travelodges for us! We will definitely come back when we are in the area again. Thank you!

We have just returned from staying 3 nights at the Beeches. Christine and Ian made us very welcome from the minute we arrived. We enjoyed our stay very much. The accommodation was very good, very clean and the room we had very comfortable. Can fully recommend the breakfast, best ever! We would recommend the Beeches to anyone.

We have just spent 2 nights at the Beeches and found it to be one of the best B&Bs we have ever visited. The attention to detail,the very high standard of accomodation we think, makes it far better than a 4 star hotel, a benchmark others might aspire to! Added to this, the genuine friendliness of Christine and Ian, and excellent food made our visit most enjoyable. We would heartily recommend a stay here for anyone who likes the better things in life!

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Beeches and can honestly say that we had the most fantastic time. From my very first phone call to Ian, right up to the moment we left we were made to feel very welcome into their gorgeous home. We were very privilege to be shown all the rooms on offer and have already made plans to return in the New Year. I could not fault any part of our stay, the breakfast was wonderful and beautifully presented, the rooms were extremely comfortable and providing everything we wanted and our host were welcoming, informative and genuinely wanted us to get the most out of our stay. The house is a set just 10 minutes walk from the town and is perfect to visit the south Devon coast.
Thank you so much and looking forward to our return visit!

We have just returned from our second stay with Christine and Ian. We had a fantastic weekend. Christine and Ian extended a very, very warm welcome. We had booked the de-luxe room last year and fell in love with it, so had to book the same room again this year! On entering our room, we found a card and bottle of wine congratulating us on our engagement, which we had mentioned in passing on booking. It was such a personal and very thoughtful touch.

If we decide to return to this part of Devon again we will have no hesitation in booking with Christine and Ian again.

Christine and Ian, we wish you every success.

We had a very enjoyable short break at The Beeches. Chris & Ian have an absolutely wonderful home, warm and welcoming. The hallway and the stairs are fantastic. Our bedroom, although not en-suite - private bathroom next door, was brilliant, large and spacious and the bed was big and so comfortable. Everywhere was clean, well presented and the decor was very tasteful. Nothing was to much trouble for Chris and Ian. We hope next time, we will be able to travel down on our bikes. Sending you our best wishes on your adventures and hope you have great success.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at The Beeches. Christine and Ian made us feel at home immediately and nothing was too much trouble for them. Their home is beautiful as was our bedroom. Very comfortable and pleasing decor. The whole athmosphere was peaceful and we were able to unwind with ease. The attention to detail and little homely touches made for great comfort. Breakfasts were spot on (lovely soft boiled eggs and soldiers my comfort food). We will be back, and wish Christine and Ian the huge success that they deserve.

Best regards Kath and Ray Rendall

Thank you for a very pleasant overnight stay in your lovely house. You treated us both very well, the comfort was luxurious and the superb breakfast kept us going for pretty well the whole day as we walked The South West Coastal Path. We appreciated such a quiet and peaceful location.
