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 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... More

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

Very clean, comfortable beds and very friendly hosts. English breakfast. The house and the garden are very well kept. We were there during spring and the flowers were beautiful. I would recommend it. It is very well located. You can reach the Dartmoor area with the wild ponies and the astonishing tors.

Penpark is set above the Devon Expressway and easily accessible from the Newton Abbot exit. We were greeted with warm and friendly hospitality and our hostess was exceptionally helpful throughout our visit. The house is a stylish 1920s country house, designed by a distinguished architect for a woman of means. The rooms - including the bedrooms - are therefore spacious... More

We had the pleasure to stay for 2 nights mid-July 2013. A beautiful house, room and setting. Ample opportunity for our dog to play. We even took her for breakfast (after asking the other guests). There are only 3 rooms available, all very beautiful! We enjoyed the breakfast and hospitality in the real Bed & Breakfast accommodation. Next time we... More

We spent Saturday night at Penpark, having travelled to Devon for a party. The weather was a bit miserable but the house and garden, and the views, were still stunning. We were warmly welcomed and made very comfortable in our room which was very comfortable and beautifully appointed. Breakfast was great in the lovely dining room and we were sorry... More
