We stayed at Farleigh Cottage in August 2014 and we're still thinking about it! Lyn was a wonderful host. She gave us great information about the area including things to do and good restaurants in the town. The B&B is charming with comfortable rooms and a lovely back garden.

Stayed for one night whilst on a charity bike ride to Cornwall. Room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was really nice with plenty on offer. Lyn was a very attentive and charming host, she looked after me really well and even contributed to the charity I was collecting for. Farleigh Cottage is a lovely place to stay and brilliant...

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.
