I spent 2 nights at Appledown House whilst visiting family in Tavistock. A lovely quiet location and rooms in an annexe so own key and not disturbing anyone when returning late evening. Fresh milk in a flask was put on doorstep each evening - a nice touch. Lovely room with large kingsize bed and nice en-suite. Good tea and coffee... More

Gill and Dave are great hosts, food excellent locally sourced, home made bread own eggs, good comfortable room spotlessly clean and the views are breath-taking. We will be back, hope your apricot and lavender jam did well at the produce fair. Our family really enjoyed the eggs, Thanks for a great stay.

Spent 3 nights a t Appledown House and enjoyed it immensely. The accommodation is great, being very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts, served with the most stunning views to Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor, are superb as only locally sourced produce (including their own free rang eggs) is used. You have to try the sausages! Gill and Dave are terrific... More

We stayed at Appledown Bed and Breakfast for one night and had a very comfortable, relaxing and peaceful stay. The breakfast was very fresh, made from local produce and tasted great. Gil and Dave are very welcoming and always willing to help!

I stayed here with my 10 year old daughter for 3 nights in July 2014. Gil made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. We were provided with fresh milk every evening and there were plenty of games available to keep my daughter amused when we stayed in due to the rain. The pool was lovely, very refreshing if... More
