We stayed for 4 nights whilst walking across Dartmoor. Before bringing our dog, I phoned Barry who reassured us we would all be made most welcome and have a comfortable stay. On arrival we were greeted warmly by our host and shown to the room. It was bright, clean and comfortable, with superb views. It was furnished with typical country... More

Very friendly, helpful owner, found us an extra room at only an hour's notice. Lovely comfortable beds, snowy white towels and efficient showers. Plenty of tasty breakfast. Wandered around Moretonhampstead in the evening; very pretty little town, interesting shops. Would recommend to friends - many thanks.

Barry our host was great. He couldn't do more for us. The food was the best we have ever had at a guest house. The cost was reasonable and although the accommodation is a little tired, it is spacious, clean and tidy. We will certainly return and would recommend it to our friends.

We received an extremely warm welcome, you get the impression that nothing is too much trouble - and all for a third/half less than the other 2 B&Bs we'd stayed at in the previous week in Cornwall. Towels and bed linen were clean, breakfast was big and included lovely fresh tomatoes on the vine (and perfect fried bread!), we had... More

We arrived without prebooking and were offered a choice of rooms at a very reasonable cost. Yes the accommodation is dated and tired looking. However the bed was spotlessly clean and the towels snowy white. The owner was lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was good and beautifully presented fresh fruit was served after the cereal whilst we waited for the... More

This is a big old house ran by what appears to be a guy by himself. The house is worn around the edges and is slightly musty however the room as big and the bed was clean, tidy and super comfy. If you are looking for a fully modern perfect room this isn’t the place for you however the landlord... More

We booked online and sadly didn't check out the Trip Advisor revues. That will teach us !! We arrived very late at night (but had telephoned and warned the proprietor) We were using the b&b as a base whilst visiting my Sister in Teignmouth and as they are advertising this as being Newton Abbott, we thought that it would be...

We really were not sure what to expect as we were just stopping over on the way to Cornwall however we were put up in a huge room, twice the size of the room we paid twice as much for in Cornwall. It is also in a great location and we went to explore a little in the morning before... More

Stayed on 22nd August 2013 for two nights. The room was very large and Barry is an excellent host. Thank you for keeping up with my 2 yr old twins. The breakfast was good and the location is very strategic to access beaches around the region. Would definitely come back.
