We are delighted to announce that featured property Higher Gitcombe, has recently won a hat trick of awards in recognition of the wonderful accommodation on offer. Beating off stiff competition from the local area, this luxury boutique B&B took Gold and became the outright winner of Best B&B in South Devon and the English Riviera. Not content with this, Higher Gitcombe boutique B&B also took Silver for the second year running for Visit Devon Best B&B in the county. Perhaps the most prestigious award of all however, came in the form of Silver (second place) in the seven county region of the Southwest being Gloucester, Wiltshire, Bristol and Bath, Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall including the Scilly Isles.
It is not really surprising that Higher Gitcombe continues to WOW both guests and judges alike. When owners Lynnie and Paul Jolly first started out on their boutique B&B journey just a few short years ago, they entered Channel 4’s Four in Bed programme and went on to become winners. Their winning formula has continued and it is not hard to see why guests fail to be impressed by the accommodation on offer. Nestled in the South Hams, an area of natural outstanding beauty, Higher Gitcombe is a beautiful Arts and Crafts built country house, in the style of Lutyens, providing a unique Boutique Bed and Breakfast experience with just three suites, catering for up to 10 guests. Designed, built, owned and personally run by Paul and Lynnie Jolly, the property is ideally situated off a quiet country lane, just 10 minutes from Dartmouth and 15 minutes from Totnes with its direct train connections to London and Cornwall.
As well as offering boutique-style B&B accommodation, Paul and Lynnie also offer health and well-being breaks, featuring delicious home-cooked, organic meals and a choice of sessions run by qualified practitioners from the local area. Options include meditation, reiki and more. The River Dart is nearby, and it’s just a 15-minute drive to a beautiful Blue Flag beach. Local attractions include Woodlands Leisure Animal and Adventure Park, which is perfect for family days out. Higher Gitcombe is within easy reach of the villages of Cornworthy, Tuckenhay and Dittisham. Dartmouth Golf and Country Club Spa is just five minutes away making Higher Gitcombe the perfect place for your escape to the glorious Devon countryside.
