Enjoyed a great weekend with the wonderful Graham and Jo. Made to feel at home upon arrival, nothing too much trouble. Gorgeous setting and a lovely breakfast, would highly recommend. We will definitely return!

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

Location was perfect as only a few minutes from Tavistock which meant close to shops / vast selection of places to eat... 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

Just returned from an unforgettable stay at the Mount Tavy B&B in Tavistock. Staying in the Pump House was a pleasure, such lovely quaint accommodation, in an absolutely wonderful setting. Breakfast was beyond fabulous, totally set you up for the day and it was nice to meet and eat with other guests in the morning. Jo and Graham are quite... More
