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

We had excellent communication with Maddy prior to our booking and there was no problem with our late arrival, in fact Maddy came out to greet us. Shown to a wonderful comfortable lounge available for our use and then on to our room. Stunning views from the bedroom down the hill across the beautiful gardens. A very comfortable and cosy...

We couldn't have felt more welcome! Mike and Maddy really made us feel at home. We stayed for 3 nights (this was only supposed to be 2 but last minute decided to stay another night!) we were able to come and go as we pleased, we relaxed in the front room, we enjoyed a game of tennis and even a...

We read all the reviews before booking and we must have caught them at the wrong time as our experience could not have been more different. We initially asked for 2 nights to be told that it was unavailable for the second night, fair enough as we gave short notice. We booked the garden room for 1 night as we... More

Tripadvisor lists this as being in Newton Abbot. In fact, it's just outside Ashburton - near Bickington. Pop in the car down the road and you'll be at the new cookery school within five minutes; or alternatively you'll be on the fringes of the town with it's beautiful little independent shops. Another ten minutes further in the car will take... More
