We stayed for 3 nights. Very comfortable and quiet, the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was substantial and very tasty. The house is ideally placed for Devon and Cornwall on the edge of Dartmoor and, if you are a National Trust member, close to many of their properties. An ideal base for exploring a... More

Stayed 2 nights for a nearby wedding. Booked the family room, although kids stayed at home in the end. Great location, secluded with picturesque gardens and surroundings. Room was perfect, well lit and lots of space. Very clean and comfortable. Slept very well. Large shower. Delicious breakfast. Friendly staff. Perfect for a relaxing getaway

We were so pleased to reach Lydford Country House. We were on bicycles doing the Coast to Coast route N27. Feeling exhausted, about 2.5 hours behind schedule, muddy and looking like vagrants we were welcomed into a nicely decorated entrance hall by Jodi the owner. We weren't sure what to expect. I had seen accomodation pictures of LCH but I... More

Stayed here for one night on our way from the Midlands to Cornwall. We love North Devon but have never explored the Dartmoor area and this location was ideal. It is a lovely house, very well maintained and tastefully decorated. The owner, Jodie, met us on arrival and after enquiring if we had any plans for our evening meal, kindly... More

This B&B impressed us right at the start, from the beautiful grounds and building to the clean, elegant interior. The room was spacious , well equipped and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfast was quick and delicious with plenty of options. The surrounding area had plenty of places to explore and the Dartmoor Inn provided an...

We only stayed one night unfortunately but we're delighted with Lydford Country House. The rooms have been tastefully and comfortably done and so peaceful and quiet. The breakfast was great and set us up for our busy day. Would definitely stay here again.

A truly memorable week at Lydford lodge. The Lodge was cosy, very comfortable and romantic. It has everything in it that you need, not to mention a huge comfortable bed.There is a lovely private garden, which makes it a difficult to decide,either to spend the day relaxing or to go out on the many lovely walks from the door step....

Room was well appointed within this lovely country house, Although no evening meal was available there are good local pubs that serve excellent food. After a relaxing evening and good sleep I was offered an excellent breakfast including pancakes made by Jodie the owner. Well worth a visit.

Our room was very comfortable and well furnished. The bathroom has recently been redesigned in a modern stylish manner. Very good shower, pity there was no soap holder! The bed was comfortable. The windows are not double glazed so as we had a windy first night, it was noisy at times, but that was not a big issue. The breakfast... More
