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

Kate and Nathan are doing a very good job. They have been able to create the perfect balance. Warm family feeling welcome and still enough privacy. When we will be in the area again we would stay here again for sure!

We stayed here over the May bank holiday weekend as we had a wedding locally. We were welcomed by Kate and Nathan like they had known us for years. There were 4 of us staying in the family room; alongside the double bed we had 2 single beds for our daughters. Before you wonder, no the room didn't feel over... More

Stayed at Gages Mill in early April. It is located in an excellent place for access to Dartmoor & South Devon, & is set amid the countryside. The ambience of the beautifully restored old mill was lovely. It was matched by a warm & genuine welcome from the owners, who quickly become friends with their guests. There was a substantial...

I was looking for a B&B for a quick overnight stop. Gages Mill turned out to be a fantastic find. I checked a few details by email before booking, and got a prompt, friendly, and helpful response. That set the tone for the stay really. Very friendly and accommodating. Good rooms. Good breakfast. I've stayed in 5* hotels at three... More

We liked everything about this warm friendly guest house. The facilities were very good and immaculately clean without being impersonal and corporate - we felt at home and were well looked after. Lovely breakfast. Will recommend to all. Fiona and Hugh

We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting our daughter, who made the reservation on the basis of local recommendations. We found it really excellent. We had a warm welcome, enjoyed a relaxed, friendly atmosphere throughout our stay, good breakfasts and a comfortable room with modern en-suite. We shall hope to return next time we visit our daughter.
