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

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
