Sheila and John could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. Their house and garden is stunning with amazing views. They also have a pool where you can take afternoon tea. There are only two guest rooms (both with private bathrooms) so you are guaranteed a peaceful and relaxing stay. North Bovey is a Dartmoor itinerary must and you can't... More

When you find it the Gate House is a stunning old building and beautifully presented throughout, set in amazing grounds with a stunning outlook. The welcome is warm and very personal and the hosts only too happy to please. The property has a pool, summerhouse and grounds, the rooms are always spotlessly clean and tastefully presented. If you want a... More

I agree with the other reviewers - this place is a real gem. Old thatched-roof place in quiet village tucked away in Dartmoor. Extremely large and comfortable bed. Quite handy to excellent "Ring of Bells" pub next door. John was most helpful with suggestions and is a talented drawer of maps! My planned activity fell through due to weather and... More

It was a very pleasant stay here at Bodmin. The owners - especially John made us a warm welcome, with tea at the pool. The house is again a totally other experience than the houses we've had before. John gave us much hints for the surroundings. I cannot mind a single negative issue. Also the drive up to the house... More

Well "experttravelleruk1", you're hangover must be rated as an A++++++++++ one, cause you're comment is totally unfair and not true..and you know it!!! If you had asked Sheila and/or John what you said you had asked, well checkout could have been after 11.00 am I'm 100% sure of it. Gate House is one of these Hidden Gems and if you're... More

We stayed at the gatehouse for part of our honeymoon and our experience was excellent! Our room was perfect the owners were awesome and when we arrived at our room there was a small note to congratulate us on our marriage. I would definately stay here again. I would also recommend the gatehouse to everyone that asks where to stay... More

This property only has three rooms so you receive very personal service. A very warm welcome was received, the room was great, breakfast hot and served at 8.30am precisely. However, our stay was spoiled on the morning of check out by a knock on the door at 10.55am (check out is 11am) by the wife asking us if she could... More
