We Stayed at Appledown house for 2 nights in july 2014. Dave and Gill are fab, nothing is to much trouble, they even booked a table at the local pub for us. The room was clean and a little on the small side , however the Superking bed more than made up for that. The Bathroom was very modern with... More

Me and my Partner stayed here for two nights whilst visiting family in the area. Dave and Gill were very helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable although a little small. Great breakfast all made from local produce. We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked again for later in the year

We were 4 cyclists staying at Appledown House on 3July 2014, we couldnt have been made more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Really lovely 2 rooms completely self contained. One room with wonderful views over the countryside. The excellent breakfast set us up for the next days cycling! After a very welcome lift into Tavistock!!

We were made very welcome. Breakfasts with locally produced food were very enjoyable. Can't better other reviewer's comments. Very good directions to main A30 were easy and quiet, saving the traffic through Tavistock and the main road. Thanks.

My husband and I stayed at Appledown House for four nights and enjoyed the best sleep in months! The annex room was beautifully clean, stylish and well stocked with tea, coffee, biscuits and fresh milk. Our conservatory windows gave us a stunning view across the countryside. The breakfasts are absolutely amazing; with locally sourced sausages and bacon, Cornish hand-churned butter,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our nights stay at Appledown. We stayed in the conservatory room and it was very comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived with a tray of tea and biscuits and fresh milk provided for drinks for the morning. We enjoyed a very nice breakfast at a time we nominated and nothing... More

Appledown was perfectly positioned for me and its facilities were perfect too: the room was clean, comfortable and more than big enough for me in the supersize bed! It was a very cold spell and the extra heater was welcome to provide instant warmth on my return in the evening. The breakfast was good, I especially enjoyed the home-made yoghurt,... More

Me and my better half stayed for one night in July after being rained out of our tent. Never has a wiser decision been made. Dave and Gil were fantastic hosts and having a room off the house in a seperate annex made is seem homely but then you were not intruding in someone else's home. Fresh milk was left... More
