Rosemary Cottage has a bouncy new proprietor who is in the process of brightening up the interior and has plans for further improvements. We were happy with the changes and found it perfectly comfortable.

i had the misfortune to book this B&B and it has unfortunately changed hands. The pictures she is using are from the previous owner. When we arrived there was nowhere to put our clothes and when i questioned/asked where i could put them Tiffany told me to hang them on the back of the door. We actually left and booked... More

Sarah and Simon treated us so well during our two nights at Rosemary Cottage - we three walking women were all equally impressed with the relaxed surrounds and the generosity of our hosts. We also fell in love with Dyson, the new Golden Retriever puppy of the house. Sarah is a wonderful cook and the quintessentially British country cottage was... More

Sara and simon have a lovely cottage in this typical Devon village. There are two rooms for guests but you will feel more like friends of the family. Dogs are welcome and they have a new puppy! The rooms are pleasantly furnished and the beds very comfortable. Choose what you want for breakfast. Excellent scrabbled eggs and smoked salmon was... More

We stayed here at the end of day 5 walking the Two Moors Way, when my wife joined us overnight for a second time, albeit mainly attracted in her case by the nearby Michelin starred restaurant. Sara was an amazing host, helped of course by Simon and their newly arrived puppy Dyson. She could not have done more for us... More

Sara and Simon run one of the best cottages that we have been in. We did the Two Moors Way and we walked 17 miles that day. My first sighting of the cottage put a smile on my face. Beautiful cottage, not so little, surrounded in the beauty of gardens. Sara is a hoot! Their home is very warm and... More

Well, what to say? A beautiful cottage in an exquisite location. Very well equipped and most importantly of all a friendly and welcoming host for whom nothing was too much trouble. Cannot speak highly enough of the place. Having the Mason's Arms up the road is just an added bonus.

We arrived having walked 16 miles of the Moors Way in very high temperatures. Sara welcomed us with tea and immediately made us feel at home. Having rested in the Parsley suite, the rooms for our stay, we walked up the the village to eat in the Michelin Star Mason Arms Pub for dinner. In the morning Sara and Simon... More

Sara could not have been more accommodating. Tea was provided in the delightful garden in full bloom on arrival, the timing of our dinner reservation up the road was checked and it says it all that this is one of the very few B and B's in the country where you do not even need a key to your room....
