About Us - Sadie and Dave Green

We are husband and wife team Dave and Sadie Green, we run a small, friendly business, committed to our guests enjoying themselves at Green House Bed and Breakfast and to enjoying Bideford and North Devon.
We are frequent travellers and have experienced countries in Europe, most of the USA , including all of the States west of the Rockies, Canada and Mexico as well as most parts of the UK. We have a love of independent travel, enjoying exploring alone.
When we travel, we often look for exclusively vegetarian B and B's, within walking distance of the town centre and all its amenities and with hikes from the door step, so we do not need to drive everywhere. We also like to learn about the local history of the area we're visiting and enjoy hosts who know about the area they live in and can help us make the most of our stay. We run our bed and breakfast to be the kind of B&B we would feel comfortable in ourselves.
Dave and Sadie have lived in Bideford, North Devon since 2005. During that time they have delighted in getting to know the area's footpaths, coastpaths, bike trails, coastal scenery, villages and towns, cafes, artists, musicians and historic buildings.

It is our philosophy to approach life, people and places with curiosity and enthusiasm, and to share our knowledge and contacts with others. This enables life in North Devon to be enjoyed, not only by us, but also by others who choose to visit this beautiful and engaging part of England.
