This has got to be one of the cleanest places we've had the pleasure to stay at, absolutely spotless. Room was cosy, quiet and very tastefully decorated plus the bed was unbelievably comfortable. Breakfast was good, properly cooked poached eggs, always a good sign! Because the weather was bad we ate in the restaurant both nights of our stay, food... More

We spent three nights at the Lydford Country House and would certainly recommend staying there. Our room was clean and well appointed with the only down side being a somewhat noisy radiator. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice and served in a very pleasant dining room. The House is situated in a very quiet location and is well positioned... More

Lydford Country House is an absolutely wonderful luxury B&B. I am so pleased to have found this gem of a place. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The booking runs like clockwork and very professionally handled. Our extra requests (prosecco) were sorted without any trouble. Breakfast was very good as well. The room was decorated to a very high... More

Bed and breakfast? - not for me. Then I booked the Lydford House. It was a hotel at least since 1906 when double rooms were three bob (15p) a night, and gentlemen could use the smoking room to relax. Smoking now is firmly barred by the owners who took over the house in November 2014. They don't provide evening meals... More

We spent 4 nights in Lydford country house during August. We had a good sized family room with a small twin room off the main double connected by an open archway. The house had beautiful gardens and a lovely dining room where a varied breakfast was served. The staff at breakfast were friendly though sometimes our cooked orders got a... More

Our room was on the ground floor overlooking a beautiful country garden, It was excellent, clean and simple in a tasteful unfussy way. The staff were both helpful (advising on a very good restaurant for our evening meal), polite and friendly. The breakfast was excellent and served in a very pleasant dining room. We only stayed for one night on... More

A lovely hotel, very clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it. The only area for improvement was the water pressure which did not allow for a good shower in the morning. Otherwise excellent and enjoyable stay.
