Kate and Nathan have done a great job in making the house comfortable and welcoming for all their guests. Our room was quite large and warm and cosy. Their garden looked particularly lovely, even though I did not have... More

We had a very comfortable stay at Gage's Mill and were well looked after by our hospitable and kind- hearted hosts, Kate and Nathan. Our room was spotless and we had excellent breakfasts which included plenty of fresh fruit and nice touches such as honey and jam in small, individual bottles. We enjoyed visiting nearby Ashburton which has a number... More

Perfectly located for visiting Dartmoor and many other lovely trips such as Dartmouth, Salcombe etc, this B&B is a gem. Kate and Nathan are friendly, easy-going hosts and gave us tips on routes to various places to visit. Great breakfast, comfortable bed, charming building and lovely garden/views. Five minute walk to pleasant pub/restaurant for evening meal (but you'll need to... More

Stayed here in June with my girlfriend and our young daughter. This place is really a great option for a few nights in Devon. A very convenient location for walking on Dartmoor and/or visiting the coast (Nathan made some excellent recommendations). The property itself is lovely with the star attraction being a beautiful garden. We really enjoyed sharing a beer... More
