This is an old inn, originally built in 1300's and added on to in 1600-1700's with a thatched roof. We had the Hayloft room which is nice size with sofa in front of TV looking out a Juliette balcony . The view was of fields with sheep. We enjoyed watching the lambs romp. There is a restaurant , pub. Breakfast... More

Bears Lake was highly recommended, however I was not satisfied with the service of a senior member of staff. With this, my burger which was ordered well done came out still raw in the middle. Considering I have had good reviews from people others I was not very happy with my experience

On a recent trip to Okehampton my girlfriend and I came across this beaut of a place. From the outside it is very pretty with an all thatched roof. After stopping off for a pint of proper Devon local cider we decided that we would book it for dinner later that evening. Not only was the food amazing it was... More

The most quaint Inn in stunning surroundings with caring and friendly service. This thatched Devon longhouse dates back to the 13th Century and is an amazing place to stay. So many interesting features and excellent ale on draught.

We stopped here to have lunch on route to staying locally. The home made quiche was delicious and we both thought it was really lovely. The Inn was very old and quaint, the staff were helpful and friendly. We would recommend eating here, lots of good homemade fayre.

We spent a quick one night stop here on our way to Cornwall, with our dog. All the staff were so friendly, welcoming and professional. We ate in the restaurant and thought the choice excellent. It really reflected the locality. It was so tasty and beautifully presented. There was some super local produce, including lovely cheeses on offer. And the... More

My husband and I spent a weekend at The Bearslake Inn, with our two dogs. The Inn is very well presented, the rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated, and every meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner were all excellent. The staff and owners were all friendly and helpful. There is a pathway next to the Inn that leads straight up... More

Thanks to Christine and the Bearslake Inn crew. Five night break to clear the 'Festive Season' cobwebs. Delicious food, spotless room ( The Hayloft) and friendly staff. Excellent Whisky top shelf! Highly recommended.
