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

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
