We had a stay of 3 nights at The Ratcliffe Guesthouse. The hosts Anna and Kev are friendly. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable. The Ratcliffe Guesthouse is near to shops, pubs, restaurants and the beach. The breakfast was good. We had a nice stay with wonderful trips to Dartmoor and Dartmouth!

Had wonderful break at the Ratcliffe Guest House with our Grandson, who likes it just as much as we do. Kevin and Anna are wonderful hosts, and the breakfasts are great. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
