I stumbled across this place because I was looking for two singles or a suite without punitive single occupancy rates. They do have a family suite but as the rooms are joined by an archway rather than a door we chose two 'singles', still at a reasonable price. This is a truly lovely place to stay. The furnishings and decor... More

Lovely Guest House in a beautiful setting. The vibe from the owners and staff is wonderful. Very comfortable room. We had one small issue one morning which was dealt with promptly and without any fuss. Very good breakfast... excellent coffee!

Great place to stay when visiting Dartmoor Natural park. Although no restaurant just yet,, there are many options to find delicious food close by. The house is very comfortable and spotless. The welcoming from Jodie was charming and friendly, the crew super efficient. The breakfast was delicious.... What more can we ask? We look forward to another visit in the... More

We stayed at lydford house for a night away. It is a lovely place and the room was spotlessly clean and decorated so lovely. Breakfast was very tasty and all locally sourced. All the staff were very polite. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic stay, really friendly & couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable, rooms spotlessly clean. Cooked breakfast was delicious too! Ideal base for walkers & cyclists as right next door to the granite way. Already planning our return visit!

We are so happy that Lydford Country house is open again as it is a beautiful building in a lovely location. The new owners are full of enthusiasm and young enough to breath fresh new life into the building which they are obviously doing. We stayed for 3 very comfortable nights in our nicely decorated room and left refreshed and... More

Has new owners and wish them all the luck needed to run such places. Very clean and stylish. Not convinced it is 4 star as all it provides is a nice room and good breakfast. Don't be confused into thinking it is a hotel, as there is no bar and little over and above a beautifully quiet setting in comfortable... More

Only stayed one night sadly but a great experience. Our room was lovely - very comfortable, excellent quality bed linens and beautifully clean. Very quiet location - but easily accessible to the Dartmoor park. Luckily they were serving food on the night we stayed - believe they only serve food on a few nights of the week. It was amazing...
