What a gorgeous place! Lovely open fires and comfy armchairs... a varied menu with delicious good and a good selection of drinks. The rooms were spacious and had comfy beds. Service was second to none as well! They've got it just right!

We stayed a single night at the Old Church House. The buiding itself is beautiful and the room was well decorated with a nice modern bathroom. The dinner was good quality and the breakfast very nice too. The main reason why I decided to leave a review though was the service. The lady who booked us in, served us at... More

My sister and I were travelling in the UK and were originally looking for a B&B. Breakfast is included at the Old Church Inn in Torbryan, but as we discovered, it really is an inn, centuries old. We stayed in the 'older' portion of the Inn, overlooking the cow field and the old church - I would recommend rooms there... More

Beautiful setting peaceful but lively. Excellent staff cheerful and helpful, great atmosphere, locals really nice. The evening meal was well presented and tasty washed down with a good pint or two followed by a good brandy. Breakfast was a real treat. Room had a good view of the church with well laid out en suite bathroom. Hope to stay again... More

A beautiful historic inn set in truly rolling English countryside. The Inn varies in age from 700 to 1300. If you're looking for a modern pristine room, then don't stop here. If you're looking for a room that is full of character and atmosphere, then this is the place for you. The owners are very welcoming and relaxed in their... More

What a smashing place to stay. The people working there are lovely. Cannot do enough to make you welcome. Locals too. I don't what the previous reviewer wanted updated in a 13th century Inn - some people are very odd! ! Already looking forward to sneaking away in the future...perfect location for races, zoo and Newton Abbott and surrounding. Very... More

I'm sorry. The people were nice and the setting is good, but this place is seriously out-dated and needs a lot of money spending on it. I know its tough for independent places that don't have the budgets of a chain hotel, but for what you pay you can get so much more elsewhere. The accommodation was pretty dreadful, and... More

We wanted to come here because of the church but we stayed for a lovely roast dinner too. I had heard of the ghost story about the place but to be honest the only area that felt ghostly was the very old fireplace are I wouldn't have had a problem staying here.
