Graham and Joanna are very lovely hosts. They made sure everything about our stay was comfortable and lovely. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, the setting is amazing and the breakfasts are delicious. It's only a ten minute drive up the road and you're into the moors. There are animals around the property and it's lovely and quiet at night. Beds... More

We stayed here after attending a wedding in Tavistock. Graham & Jo have a cosy home in a beautiful location and we felt very fortunate to have discovered it! It was a short walk from the B&B into town (walk back late at night after a wedding and WOW the stars!) The bedroom and bathroom were perfect for our needs... More

My wife and I stayed self-catering at the Pump House last week for a couple of nights, and can't wait to go back! A really cosy cottage, with a roaring woodburner which was much needed after some long February hiking on the moor! The location couldn't be better, set in its own beautiful grounds, yet within easy reach of the... More

We arrived in Tavistock at night and had trouble finding a B&B with vacancies. Mount Tavy Cottage was recommended to us by another B&B proprietor and we were so lucky she did. It is located in a wonderful setting just a couple of minutes drive from the centre of town. Rooms are very comfortable and well appointed whilst hosts Graham... More

We arrived to the very welcoming owners after a long day cycling half of the Dartmoor way. They couldn't have done more for us and the accommodation was lovely. Also the breakfast was very good. We would love to stay again!

I stayed at Mount Tavy Cottage for two nights in order to attend a friends wedding in nearby Tavistock. My only regret is that I didn't stay for longer! As mentioned in the majority of reviews, Graham and Jo are indeed great hosts. A warm but unobtrusive welcome awaits anyone that stays here. I had never been to Devon before... More
