We arrived after a long journey to a very warm welcome from Ellie. The farm is in a glorious position not far from Lydford Gorge and many fabulous sites.. The farmhouse was welcoming and our room was a true home from home and very comfortable. Ellie was extremely knowledgeable of the local area and with her help we found a... More

In wonderful surroundings this b&b offered us everything we needed and they were so helpful. We were made very welcome and breakfast was awesome. Our room was clean and comfortable and it felt more like a home than a hotel. We will certainly stay there again.

From the moment you step through the door to the moment you leave, this B&B offers everything you would expect when staying on a farm. Ellie and Guy are such lovely people and made us feel so welcome. Our room was comfortable, warm and clean with tea and coffee to hand. Fresh milk was always available the minute you stepped... More

A friend and I on a cycle tour of Devon and Cornwall happened upon Downtown Farm as we needed a place to stay and were encouraged by the reviews. We were warmly welcomed into this beautiful, rustic and most definitely working farm very warmly. Nothing was too much trouble and even our wet (and slightly smelly) cycling clothes were dried...

Stayed for 3 nights. Friendly hosts, large comfy room, great breakfast, lots of friendly animals on the farm. Good price. Bus will stop outside too ! Goes to Tavistock or Okehampton and beyond, so really handy for car free Moors walking.

We stayed for one night. The hosts were amazing, giving us a tour of the farm with a lot of info on their special animals. Our room was clean and very comfortable and breakfast was a good full English breakfast. We did book the special dinner and had been asked what we would like the main course to be. We... More

My wife and I stayed for one week and travelled every day to the various places of interest. Cooked breakfast was good and Ellie was happy to change anything every morning to suit our mood, we found both Ellie and her husband Guy really freindly and there was always fresh milk available every night for our coffee when we returned...

Our wedding anniversary includes at least a weekend or mid-week break to Downtown. This was our third return, and Guy's 'Secret Garden' (as I called it) had grown and bloomed since last year. So not only are you welcomed to a 'family home' by Guy and Ellie, the animals that live on the farm and in the garden are a... More

We stayed at Downtown Farm in October this year for a last minute weekend break. The weather was good, which was a bonus. Food was super, breakfast was included. Walking over the Moor and appreciating the splendid views on offer we built up an appetite for our evening meal. We can recommend the passion on a plate menu, very tasty... More
