My wife & I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2015. Absolutely great - can't recommend it to you enough. Lyn couldn't be more welcoming & helpful: home made cakes to welcome, home made shortbread in room every day if feeling peckish - breakfasts - well, tablecloths, cloth napkins, fresh fruit, everything you could ever hope for in a...

We have stayed in many B & B's over the years in the UK, Ireland and the U.S.and the Farleigh Cottage ranks among the best. Lyn is charming, engaging and was very helpful directing our expeditions into the countryside. The town is lovely, we visited ancient and natural sites close by, and then still had time to have an excellent... More

What a welcoming place to stay - Lynn is absolutely fantastic and looked after us so well. We had such a wonderful sleep on our one night stay in the twin room - the beds were so comfortable. Wide range of interesting books available to enjoy - quite an eclectic mix! Lynn is a great hostess and cooks the best... More

What a lovely cottage to stay in with such a fantastic hostess. My partner and I were greeted with a delicious piece of lemon cake and a pot of tea before going out to explore the beautiful surroundings. Lyn also makes a great English breakfast and thoughtfully gave us freshly toasted hot cross buns and an egg cup filled with... More

Located a few blocks from "downtown" Chagford, this guesthouse was just perfect for us. After a long day of exploring Dartmoor National Park, coming "home" to tea with Lyn, the owner, then a short walk to our choice of 3 pubs for dinner, was great. We stayed in the two bedrooms upstairs - both were clean and comfortable. Bathrooms were... More

Clean, comfortable and cozy! Mrs Evans(Lynn) fed us a filling English breakfast and set us on our way every morning! Everything I expected of an English B&B! On the edge of beautiful Dartmoor National Park!

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
