My husband and I spent a night at Penpark and we were nicely welcomed by Maddy who is a charming person. she runs a beautifully decorated house. Our bedroom, the house in general, the breakfast and the garden are so pleasant that we can only recommend this place to any visitor looking for a peaceful stay in a quiet environment... More

The Garden room was delightful - spacious and comfortable - felt like our own little apartment! Blessed with good weather I loved wandering through the bluebells in my PJ's and wellies with our dog as the sun rose through the trees each morning! Maddy and Mike were most welcoming and every attention was paid to detail - what more could... More

Taking the dog along to B&b's can be difficult but not at Penpark. The garden room was lovely; spacious, light filled and comfortable. Just outside the french windows is a lawn and flowerbed with table and chairs overlooking sloping woodland Several acres of spring flower strewn garden and woodland was ideal for an early morning and late night run for...

I cannot praise this B and B highly enough. The setting is stunning; the facilities (room and separate but private bathroom, on a private corridor) are first rate and extremely clean; the host and hostess are friendly without being intrusive, a very delicate balance. A great deal of careful thought has gone into the facilities in the bedroom: an electric... More

If you are looking for a traditional country-style, family home surrounded by beautiful woodland, and moorland walks then I would highly recommend this B&B. Maddy and Mike were very friendly, accommodating and sincere and made us feel very welcome in their home. Our room (the garden room) was gorgeous......very light and spacious, views into the gardens, and fresh flowers inside... More

Warm welcome to a lovely house in the countryside of Dartmoor. Room was very comfortable and breakfast fresh and delicious. Maddy and Michael were really helpful with suggesting and organising resaurants during our stay. Clean and homely. NOT a modern hotel so don't expect all mod cons but a delightful and cosy stay for anyone wishing to explore Dartmoor.

I have been a regular vistor at Penpark for the last 2 years and have always enjoyed a warm welcome from Mike and Maddy. The house is beautifully decorated and there are always fresh flowers from the garden in every room (a very nice personal touch). I have always found my hosts very accomodating and flexible and now consider Penpark... More

Beautiful house in a lovely country setting, a little difficult to find in the dark, but my sat nav knew where it was. Great facilities and flexible and amenable hosting. I had planned to take my dog and that would have been great . The garden room leads onto the garden and a nearby wood.

This is a lovely B&B full of character and set in beautiful grounds. It is churlish of others to complain about a lack of mod cons in a B&B that has so much charm and a cosy homely feel - an ideal place to relax and enjoy a little piece of tranquillity.

Not much of a welcome and no farewell. Not much information given about what to do and we returned home one day to find the doors to the house locked. We asked for "early" breakfast at 7.30am and it was made clear that this was inconvenient but given. The room was tired and the bathroom was a couple of doors... More

We are sorry that these guests who came through an agency did not appreciate our lovely, traditional family home and the surrounding Devon countryside. Perhaps a hotel with all the latest fixtures and fittings would have been better for them. More
