Devon: Prestoller House Bed and Breakfast and a Giveaway

Recently a visit to Devon-Dorset borders for a day at River Cottage HQ meant we would book a B&B in the Axminster region and make a three day break.  Mr R had already booked the week off and we were looking forward to exploring a part of the country so far unknown.

We booked a two night stay at Prestoller House Bed & Breakfast in Axminster which was a good 10 minute walk into the town centre and only a 7 minute drive to River Cottage.
When we arrived we were greeted by the owner Caroline, a lovely and enthusiastic woman so proud of her home and wanting us to have a great stay.

Prestoller House have three double bedrooms available year round, one in the main house and two lovely en-suite rooms each with their own entrance. The d├ęcor was fresh and cosmopolitan inviting you to linger a little longer, perhaps have a coffee before you set off.
The coffee machines are little Nespresso machines supplied with the pods and if you run out just ask for more or you could always bring some of your own.  Caroline fetched us a bottle of fresh water and a flask of fresh milk for our coffee which was replaced daily.
Adrian, Caroline's husband, presents you with fresh and warm croissants as you sit down to breakfast with your pot of coffee or tea. All the cereals are there and yoghurt along with a fresh fruit salad prepared daily by Adrian along with locally made jams and marmalades.
The full English breakfast will be cooked to your liking, I like my eggs scrambled however Mr R wants traditional fried eggs. The sausages are local and Adrian has plans of smoking and curing his own bacon in the near future. While you wait for your breakfast a fresh and warm croissant keeps you busy!
While you sit and enjoy your breakfast and perhaps stay for an extra cup of coffee or tea you can look out onto the manicured garden and plan your day.
We felt like we were saying goodbye to long time friends as we drove away.  I would love to go back and explore the Jurassic Coast a bit more and will certainly book in at Prestoller House B&B.
If you would like to stay one night at Prestoller House B&B follow the Rafflecopter instructions and enter the giveaway.  The prize is one night B&B date to be arranged directly with Prestoller House. You will have to arrange with Prestoller House when you can claim your one night stay directly with them, they will contact you if you have won.
