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.

We recently stayed in the Porter's Lodge for a long weekend. Yet again we had a fabulous time, the cottage is lovely and Jenny very kindly agreed to put two stair gates in for our little one. There's nothing to fault - the cottage itself is very comfortable, there's the little touches like milk, orange juice, hand wash etc and... More

We had a lovely stay in the Ticketing Hall. Colin met us and showed us around and the history is very interesting. The building has been thoughtfully restored, with lots of original features eg the sales hatches, awning and platform. It was very comfortable with everything we needed (DVD player, dressing gowns, and a freshly baked cake in the fridge!).... More

The personal welcome to a warm cottage plus cake was super. An excellent base for exploring Tavistock and the surrounding area. Easy access to the town centre and home from home comfort in the cottage. Hope to return soon.

We treated ourselves to a last minute, 2 night stay at the end of January. The Cottage (Old booking office) is really well presented, and provided us with a cosy, warm base during what became quite a frosty weekend. Nice little touches such as the very tasty cake on arrival, dressing gowns and slippers, Colin's introduction to the station's history,... More

We are really sorry you missed Match of The Day and also sorry if you were not shown how to use the TV controls. As we always tell our guests we are on site and if any problems please come and see us. We don't think the majority of our guests would like us to eliminate Sky but we have... More

What a beautiful tasteful renovation, Jenny and Colin have certainly pulled out all the stops. We even had a scrummy cake waiting on the table for our arrival, as well as milk in the fridge and plenty of other little extras. Our weekend at The Porters Office was so relaxing, it is so lovely and quiet there but only a... More
