The epitome of traditional B&B with the charming Lyn Evans ever willing to meet any request from her guests as if they were part of her family. A perfect place both for walkers exploring Dartmoor and the local attractions like Castle Drogo, and Lyn is even willing to give foodies a lift to and from Gidleigh Park.

Myself, my husband and our eight week old baby stayed with Lyn for three nights in December and it was like coming home. She could not do enough to make our stay comfortable, even dropping us to Exeter when we needed to catch our train. Our room was extremely tidy and beautifully decorated and our breakfasts were delicious. Lyn even... More

Cannot praise Ms. Lyn Evans and her beautiful accommodations more highly. From the warm welcome, most comfortable bed (hot water bottle on request--although the room was quite warm) to an absolutely perfect English breakfast. Ms. Evans goes out of her way to make you feel at home, but also respects quiet time and privacy. I spent a lovely afternoon in... More

Nicely set off in its own courtyard our rooms were perfect. Lyn was the best of hosts, with a wonderful tea and home made sponge cake on arrival. She also provided all kinds of good tips for dinner and trail access. Nice sized room overlooking the garden modern bathroom with good sized shower, excellent.

Driving in Dartmoor National Park is not for the faint of heart, but it's well worth the effort. And staying with Lyn Evans was for us like being invited to stay with a favorite relative. We stayed three nights and hated to leave. After a restful night and delicious breakfast, Lyn would help us plan our day and share her... More

I stayed here during a Devon Coast to Coast walking holiday ,and it was without doubt one of the best places I have stayed. We were greeted by Lyn at the front door asking if we wanted tea before or after a shower, which was then served with a fabulous (and unexpected) lemon drizzle cake. Staying here was like staying...

Just exactly what a very good b&b should be. As soon as we arrived Farleigh cottage felt like home and all I can really do is echo the comments below - especially as we were treated to the lemon drizzle cake as well! Lyn is a lovely lady and the perfect hostess.

It has taken me far too long to write this review (we stayed in April for my husbands birthday), mainly because I like to be as objective and analytical as possible when I write my reviews. However with this place it has proved impossible. Yes our room was comfortable, the setting was lovely, the breakfast excellent but this pales into... More

We loved our stay at Farleigh Cottage, which we used as our home base for a couple of nights while exploring Dartmoor. The cottage and the room were comfortable and homey, and the breakfast was delicious, but it was Lyn's welcoming and friendly nature and the little extra touches she provided which made this place outstanding. She made us feel... More
