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.

Just enjoyed their Christmas Barbershop evening and it was so good. The food was good, lovely Christmas choices, happy staff, a jolly evening. The Bearslake is somewhere that we would always recommend, the food is always good. Sometimes they do a set menu. Christine is always a laugh. In a lovely setting. On a summers day the patio is lovely.

The Bearslake Inn is just off the bike trail, via a path so no road navigation required. Bikes were stored in a secure garage but you have to ask the owner about this as he has the keys and none of the other staff knew about it. The room was lovely, big, comfortable, clean and had a very nice bathroom.... More

Charming and friendly place. We booked my father & his partner Phyllis into the Garden Room because of his dodgy knees and we stayed a night in the Hayloft room. We loved looking out from the comfy leather sofa by the open balcony doors we had, over the fields & sheep. Great dinner and breakfast. Would definitely go back.
