We had the pleasure of staying here again recently. A very warm welcome awaited us. The house, bedroom and huge en-suite bathroom all beautifully presented and well heated. There are many nice touches in the bathroom and bedroom. Superb bed and bedding. Breakfast was excellent every day with a large selection of cereals including homemade muesli, an abundance of fruits,... More

We stayed at Hillhead farm for one night to break our journey to Penzance. We had a warm welcome. The double room we stayed in was very comfortable and clean with a large ensuite bathroom and seperate shower. Lovely views from the front of the house. We enjoyed our breakfasts, a full english, and smoked haddock and poached eggs. Delicious... More

Finally we have discovered the perfect B & B. Exceptional hosting. Stunning surroundings with a view so uplifting it would gladden any heart. The farmhouse itself is full of character. Tranquility abounds just broken by the occasional mewing cat, barking dog and birdsong. Every B & B in the country would benefit from staying with Jane and learn how it... More

Thank you so much for your very generous review, it's good to know we've "got it right"! It's a very rewarding job when you know you have made someone's stay memorable (for all the right reasons!) it's a question of "do as you would be done by" really!! We look forward to your next visit. More

We got married last year in Newton Ferrers and some of our family stayed at Hillhead Farm during this time. With friends and family scattered all over the B&Bs and hotels in the towns nearby Hillhead Farm was by far the best!! When we decided to come back for a weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary there was no... More

I had to make a few alterations to my booking before we arrived but Jane was most accommodating. The farmhouse is set in the lovely village of Ugborough and is convenient for discovering South Devon. Each time we returned from our excursions we were greeted by the friendly dogs or Rosko the pure white cat. Our room was very comfortable... More

Lovely farm setting, which equalled a tranquil stay with some beautiful views and very accommodating hosts! The room and en-suite was extremely pleasant and the full English breakfast with ingredients from the farm was very yummy! Would be great to stay again.

Relaxing. Comfortable. Peaceful. Tasteful rooms. Wonderful sitting room. Farm animals. Well landscaped. Beautiful view from bedroom. And one of the best things was the large dining table for breakfast which allowed us to chat with the other guests. Would highly recommend. Located in the delightful small village of Ugborough, next to Ivybridge. By the way, had a terrific meal at... More

Our stay at the Hillhead Farm was absolutely amazing. I don't even know where to start because there is so much to say, but let's start with the surroundings and the farm itself. The B&B is inside the farmhouse of a working farm, with cows and steers, chickens and ducks, sheep, pigs, dogs and cats. Despite it being a working... More

Very friendly and welcoming from the start. Picked up from the station and greeted with tea and home-made cake in the lounge with other guests. The whole experience was great - nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Comfortable room. Lots of books to read. Warm and snug farmhouse, which feels like it would be the same whatever the...

nothing to add to the other reviews, other than to agree and say that we had a fabulous stay. very clean and comfortable and well cooked and delicious food. The farmhouse is well placed for easy access to the A38 and was a good central base for us. Highly recommended.
