We stayed at the the Old Railway Station for a week at Xmas 2015 and we couldn't have wished for a more beautiful venue and location to celebrate our festive holiday. Jenny was a perfect host, meeting and greeting us with a short tour of the cottage along with interesting snippets of its history. The cottage was also decorated for... More

We made a very late weekend just for a weekend. Everything you could possibly need when arriving late on Friday night - the milk and tea were particularly welcome. The Ticket Office is lovely, (though you do need to mind the beams upstairs) with a fabulous bathroom and plenty of space. Colin and Jenny have made this a real 'home... More

Very pleasant stay in a lovely environment, warm and welcoming we felt it was a home from home. Kitchen was a little cramped but we eat out most of our visit. Bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, modern and comfortable.

When my husband saw an old railway station as an holiday accommodation option he was very taken with the idea. The Porter's Office was tastefully decorated, colour co-ordinated and comfortable - really beautiful. We had everything we could have needed. and as Australians - a shower as an alternative to an English bath. If we had decided to go native... More

Beautiful conversion of Tavistock Railway Station. Very impressed and will certainly return! Jenny and Colin are lovely hosts...... We loved the town of Tavistock and so much to do with Cornwall and Plymouth not too far away.

Stayed at the Old Tavistock Railway cottages twice this year. The first time we stayed in the Old Ticketing Hall which was beautifully finished. The second time we stayed in the Porters office which is slightly larger and more suited to our needs, and is also finished to a very high standard. Thank you Jenny and Colin for making us... More

Beautifully restored, lovely building. We stayed in the ticketing hall which was clean, comfortable and decorated to a high standard. You can sit outside on the lawn and have a view over Tavistock and Dartmoor in the distance. Bring a bike and go for a ride along the railway line to Plymouth. Jenny and Colin are great hosts, thanks very... More

Not stayed since 2011, and on our return these cottages are as well-appointed and spotless as ever. Generous hosts, characterful accommodation, excellent views over town. Tavistock itself is still an interesting and attractive market town which seems to be getting a bit more gentrified.

A wonderful, relaxing time in the Porter's Office. We could not fault this superb accommodation. Beautiful decor and every need catered for. Will definitely be visiting again. Location perfect for exploring Dartmoor and coastal resorts.
