Went with a group of friends some of whom had stayed before - they noted that there was a vast deterioration since the last visit. The new owners had only been in for five days when we arrived but organisation can be done in quite a short time in my book - there was none. Despite having been sent a... More

Stayed for one night and really enjoyed the experience and country location. For our taste the place could do with quite a bit of an interior refurbishment and some money spent upgrading the rooms. We did have a dog so we probably didn't get the best room! Food was good pub food and the owners and staff were nice and... More

I'm from Australia and spent two wonderful nights at the Old Church House last week with family whilst on a trip through Devon and Cornwall. Wonderful hosts with an Oz connection, great food, charming rooms and the beautiful old church a few steps away. Highly recommend!!

The coach house is the perfect place to stay for families and couples wanting to experience a genuine country pub stay in the heart of the countryside. Not only will you be staying in one of the oldest coaching inns in the country (1300) but you will be enjoying genuine hospitality of the owners as well. The rooms are all... More

Still like the atmosphere in the bar and the food. As to the room (4) it just needs some tlc don't think anything has been updated or replaced in last few... More

We have just returned from a one night stay at the Old Church Inn after spending a night here for a birthday weekend away. The staff were very pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. Open checking in we had been allocated a different room as we'd asked for a 'more haunted' room following the reports online that the inn... More

Stayed here for one night in February 2015. We picked it for it's location from the internet. You have to be determined to find it and we arrived well after dark to find this really, really old pub/inn. You have to understand this is a very old pub in deep Devon countryside with carpets to match so if you want... More
