Our Reviews


Thank you Lisa for a lovely stay, for all the attention to detail, and especially the vegan options! We will be recommending to other people and hope to come back. 


I'll second that, very good hostessing, the pastiest B & B food ever and a really nice stay. Thank you Lisa



We had a lovely time here. Richard and Lisa are perfect hosts. The room is beautiful, the bed was very comfortable, gorgeous bathroom. Plenty of hot water, great shower. Breakfast plenty of choices and served with a smile.

Such a wonderful place to stay when visiting Westward Ho!
Tors Top is a clean and lovely decorated, homely Bed and Breakfast. The bathroom has an array of toiletries should they be required.
The Hypnos bed is so comfortable as well the soft pillows make sleep easy.
Fabulous breakfast and even more the fabulous hosts(Lisa, Richard Jake and Shannon) makes this a perfect Bed and Breakfast.



We can't believe our luck in finding such a gem. So comfortable after the SWCP. Totally Brilliant. Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay. You are a really welcoming host and your house is so lovely and it's immaculately clean. When you add in a delicious breakfast - what more could we possibly want? Good luck for your B&B venture.

Sue & Len.



Spent 2 nights here with our 2 toddlers. Our room was plenty big enough for the 4 of us, beautifully decorated and very comfortable and the bathroom was amazing. An extra benefit was that the breakfast room was just next door which meant we had somewhere we could sit once the children were asleep.

Lisa gave us a very warm welcome and it was lovely to chat with her over breakfast.

The only slight drawback to the room was the soundproofing between us and next door but we know Lisa is trying to fix that.

Westward Ho! is a lovely little place with the most stunning beach and we'd certainly recommend staying here.

Sarah & Andy


Thank you for a lovely stay. Everything has been excellent! We look forward to staying again next Friday!

We came from Barnstaple - walking the SWCP - first tour continuing to Clovelly today. It was so good to finish the day in Tors Top!!Amazing people, cool space to be -slept well & be prepared for new adventures. ...And we loved to stay a pity not to stay longer....but as we learned many times "you always meet twice!!...

Jorg & Bettina.




We have really enjoyed our stay - so much to do. Staying at Tors Top is like putting icing on the cake! Lisa is a wonderful person & has really made us feel welcome.

"One of the best B&B's we've ever used."

We were in Westward Ho! for a wedding and booked Tors Top last minute, despite not being massively convinced by the picture on the website.

We were surprised to find that the B&B has been recently renovated and is really thoughtfully designed and decorated. The room we stayed in was huge, with loads of space for our 1 year old to run around. There was a cot in the room, bath and separate shower. The room was great but the best thing about Tors Top were the host. 

They were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us over our stay. They made our stay really special and cook a great full English.

This is exactly what a good B&B ought to be! We even extended our stay because we were having such a good time in the area. The business is still quite young so if you are thinking about staying, I would suggest you take the chance and book now.

My only criticism would be that the website didn't show how great the place is!

Thanks for a wonderful stay!


Thank you for a wonderful stay, by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in! Lisa has an amazing eye for detail and truly cares about her guest's experience. Wonderful room, Breakfast and atmosphere "Fantastic!"

It was by pure luck that we were recommended this B + B by another B + B owner who was not able to accommodate us, but we are so extremely happy that we did. Lisa is so friendly and welcoming the room was amazingly spotless and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The whole stay was perfect! Highly recommended. Thank You!

What an amazing B n B. Absolutely beautiful and very warm and welcoming.

Beautiful BnB! Close to South West Coast Path"

The BnB is beautiful, the breakfast fantastic! You can notice Lisa puts all her heart in it> Absolutely recommend it. There are nice restaurants nearby and you can use a footpath to get to the sea and the South West Coast Path.

19th August 18

So glad we found this B & B! Everything is faultless. Lisa is the perfect hostess. Breakfast is amazing. Bed is amazing. Spotless, friendly, relaxing. What's not to love! Thank you!

Penny & Geoff

"Awesome B&B!"

We stayed as part of our South West Coastal Path trip. Lisa is a gem. Great welcome, wonderful host, lovely breakfast and she has thought of every little detail. Huge room, great en-suite, comfy bed, you name it, it has it at Lisa's. I've not written a review before and felt compelled to because Lisa deserves all the success she can achieve.

"Great little bed and breakfast"

We phoned this bed and breakfast very late in the day at the end of a very long walk along the North Devon coast. Fortunately they were able to put us up. Lisa was extremely welcoming to two very tired walkers and made us very comfortable in a super comfy room, with extras like Clipper teas, hot chocolate chocolates on the bed, large bath and great freshly cooked breakfast in the morning. It was just what we needed. Lisa goes out of her way to make you comfortable and is very keen to get it right! For a holiday area I thought that £85 a night was a very reasonable price for the execellnt accommmodation

27th August '18

Very lucky to find you whilst searching on the internet. Lovely room and location. The room was ideal, spacious, clean and well decorated. Bathroom facilities also spot on. Lisa and Richard make you feel so welcome and so friendly and relaxing to chat with. A great breakfast to start the day. Thank you and see you again.

Lovely B & B

Was placed in this b&b when the plumbing in the one we booked broke. This was a very good b&b, the room was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was first rate with plenty of choose from. Lisa was very friendly and could not have been more helpful.. Would recommend this b&b to anybody.

Steve S



Brilliant B & B

Top Tors was worth the walk up the hill after our day on the South West Coast Path although Lisa offered to pick us up if we needed a lift. And that says it all - Lisa provides that little bit more care and attention to detail. The house had recently been refurbished. Our room was lovely, the bed super comfortable and a great en- suite. All spotless clean.



"Amazing Stay & Lovely Host!"

My fiancé and I stayed 2 nights in this wonderful B & B whilst visiting a nearby wedding venue.

The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, just like new, and all amenities had been provided to make us feel at home. The bedding was so comfortable that I've even purchased the same duvet for us at home!

The breakfast room is beautifully presented with a wide range of continental and cooked options - the avocado on toast is not to be missed.

The host Lisa was incredibly friendly and welcoming, which made our stay even more perfect.

A perfect B & B in a wonderful location - we'll certainly be back! :-)



Superb B & B

We stayed at Tors Top in September at the end of a week walking the South West Coastal Path. Lovely Lisa showed us both of her luxurious bedrooms to choose from - both large, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. So quiet  and peaceful with great views, and only a few minutes walk uphill from Westward Ho! Our breakfast was probably one of the best we have ever had - great choice, with fresh fruit and Lisa's attention to detail fascinated us - we have already decided to stay here next year when we will do another week of the SWCP.

A brilliant B & B

We stayed at the start end of our walk along the coastal path to  Padstow. We stayed in both of Lisa's luxurious rooms, one at the start of our holiday and one at the end. This was the best B & B on our trip! Lisa provides an excellent breakfast and her rooms are furnished to meet every need. She went out of her way to be helpful. We were even able to leave our car during our walk. We highly recommend this B & B. Thanks for a great stay Lisa.



Thank you for a lovely stay! The room was gorgeous & your hospitality was amazing!

Thank you so much

You will not find better in Westward Ho!

Where to start regarding the Tors Top

On arriving at the Tors you immediately notice how well presented the building is. The building is in a quiet area with easy walking access to the main area of Westward Ho! 2-3 parking spaces are available which is ample as their is only 2 guest rooms (The Pines and The Kipling). Your hosts (Lisa and Richard) are a delight to meet and you instantly feel welcome and know if possible all reasonable requests made they will endeavour to achieve. Lisa does not go the extra mile she goes way beyond that to ensure you have a wonderful stay. The rooms are spacious and decorated to a high standard. Everything you would expect in your room is supplied but at the TORS Lisa has excelled. The room was spotless. The hospitality tray is of the highest standard (fairtrade items) even down to Smart water by your bed. We stayed in the Kipling room and the bathroom has an excellent large shower and the supplied toiletries are again above the usual standard. The bed was beyond big and very comfortable....a bed made for a great nights rest, 1st class. One small observation about the room is the tv is small for such a large room but this would only be a problem to people with eyesight restrictions. We love the space therefore the tv is not a problem for us. Lisa is planning to upgrade the tv soon.

From the Kipling Room you have to walk down the outside of the building about 30 yards to the breakfast room an umbrella is supplied. The breakfast room like the whole building is exceptionally well presented and again spotless.


Excellent vast choice of cereals fruit, yogurts, fruit salad and juices which we ground to be of a high quality. Lisa operates a pre-ordering system where you fill in your breakfast form the night b4 - no problem to us as this is quickly becoming the standard to save wastage. Your choice of cooked items is excellent and cooked perfectly -  we would say it ranks in the top 2 of the many, many guest houses we have stayed to over the last 2 years - I would rank it SIMPLY THE BEST.

To summarise excellent host, superb housekeeping standards, exceptional breakfast and a place we would recommend without reservations

We loved the hosts and the Tors so much we have been back many times in a very short time period and have even brought guests whom also fell in love with the Tors. Our guests also plan to return. My only negative regarding the Tors is if you visit I am confident you will return making it harder for us to book the many visits we are hoping to take in the future - health permitting.


Scott & Helen



Lovely room and lovely host in Lisa. We had a really nice stay. Would definitely recommend to others and would come again

Lovely 6 day stay at Lisa's B & B. Immaculate accommodation, excellent breakfasts and s welcoming host. Alf & Anne enjoyed their return to the North Devon area - after a 70 year absence.

Susan (Alfred + Anne)


Had a lovely stay in August. Perfect and friendly hosts, lovely private room with large bathroom and excellent breakfast with menu choice and time to suit. 

Idead to explore the area and for those who love walking 

No complaints.


Superb B & B in fantastic location

My wife and I are regular visitors to the Westward Ho! and Appledore area and stayed at Tors Top while agreeing the purchase of a property nearby. What can I say; Lisa & Richard are fantastic hosts, the rooms are so nicely fitted out and bed so comfortable you couldn't want for more. Superb breakfast (we ended up chatting to other guests over an extra coffee) and with the Pig-on-the-Hill within easy walking distance dinner is sorted.

If choosing a B & B in the area, put this at the top of the list.



Thank you Lisa for a wonderful time. Best B & B we have ever been in

Attention to details was brill

This has been a delightful stay. Lisa kindly came down the path to welcome us. The place is so convenient to Westward Ho (not 10mins through a lovely wood). The room was perfection + we were left a gorgeous cake (Gluten free!) Breakfast - one of the best breakfasts I've had - fresh fruit, cereal + fantastic hot breakfast. Nothing is too much for Lisa who could not have been more helpful. Would definitely stay again. 

Thanks Lisa Ann + Angela
