Work regularly takes me to Okehampton and has done for many years.I was lucky enough to come across the Measowlea some 10 years ago and I have stayed there whenever I visit. The welcome afforded the tired traveller is second to none, the rooms are delightful and beautifully clean, the breakfast as good as it gets. I would not hesitate... More

Good sized triple comfortably adapted for four. Decent shower and all we needed, well presented. Guest lounge cosy and Christmassy for our one-night stay on the day before Christmas Eve. Lovely freshly cooked breakfast with plenty of choice, including fruit salad, muesli and yogurt with the cereal bar. We were visiting relatives but it's a short walk into town and... More

We decided to make Okehampton the first stop for our Devon trip and I chose Meadowlea because of the excellent reviews and its proximity to the Okehamption Railway. They were all correct! Lesley and Mark made us feel so welcome. The room was fine and the quilt particularly warm and inviting. What really struck us was the thoughtful efforts made... More

We stayed in the king room, it was very quiet. No views but we had seen plenty during the day. Everything was well done and good quality. Super stop on the Devon coast to coast cycle way. It is a bathless house, so if you need a bath go elsewhere otherwise if you want B&B in Okehampton stay here.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us, you will not get many views from our rooms as we are in the town and not on the moor. However, you do get the advantage of a 5 minute walk to the town centre and amenities, but no noise from those local amenities. We do... More

Fantastic pillows, mattress, breakfast & friendliness. Think we filled the place with half our coast to coast cycling tour. We were even given oil wipes for dirty legs. Later discovered why bedding towels in fact the whole place was immaculately kept. Parked all our bikes safe & securely on site. We were tired but the bed was sooooo comfy!! Breakfast... More

We stayed for six nights in one twin and one double room. Mark and Lesley were so welcoming and friendly. Both rooms were beautifully clean and had everything we could have wanted, including hairdryer, soap, shower caps, a good selection of tea and coffee making facilities, and even a robe if we wished. Room 4 (the twin) especially was lovely... More
