We had a very warm welcome on a very wet and windy night in October. We booked a room with en suite and our only criticism was that the shower head was situated about two foot above the bath and it made it very difficult to use as a shower. Room very large comfortable and warm. Breakfast was fabulous with... More

Upcott House B&B is just half a mile outside Okehampton, so an easy walk into the town. The property is set back off the road and so is in a nice peaceful location. The room I stayed in was comfortable and spacious with a nice bathroom although lacking a proper shower. On arrival I was given a jug of fresh... More

These are kind, hard working people. My ensuite room was large, clean and comfortable, and I quickly got used to the dated decor:) I admire the fact that they don't waste money on redecorating a perfectly serviceable room. For breakfast you can have virtually anything you want - just write it on the notepad provided in the bedroom and hang... More

My husband and I stayed there this week for a couple of nights. The owners, John and Kay, gave us a warm welcome and were most attentive. Breakfast was freshly prepared to order and was delicious. The property is very conveniently located within walking distance to the town, if you don't mind the walk back uphill. Our room was clean... More

5 of us used it as our first stop on a Lands End to John O'Groats cycle. Dropped parcel off the day before and owners were more than helpful. Gave us recommendations for food and had breakfast ready for us despite our unsociable 6am start. Awesome property. Washed all of our grubby kit so we could have a clean set... More

The warm and friendly owners couldn't have been more helpful in giving local information on where to eat, and their breakfasts - which you order in detail to meet your requirements - were eagerly anticipated each day and absolutely delicious! Excellent value for money and thoroughly recommended.

On arrival pleasant greeting and taken up to room, balcony door would not open, soap looked like it had been there for years and sole bathroom had other peoples toiletries in it. For £100 per night the room was not clean or free from cobwebs. Furthermore no heating and spent the night very cold. Overall very pleasant building could be... More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. You seem to be a little confused about a few details in your review. Your room was £81 per night for a family room and it is quite clear that the bathroom is a shared bathroom and not for your sole use. If you had required sole use... More

The house has a great country feel to it, that doesn't disappoint once inside. I was met with friendly and efficient service at the door, with everything explained to me and made to feel welcome. My room was cosy, had a great shower, and provided a great nights sleep. Breakfast was lovely, with a nice option of home made apple... More

From arrival to leaving the property which has almost finished being refurbished, but is well managed,we enjoyed our stay, no problems, both our boys enjoyed the friendly attitude towards dogs and the resident terrier; what a relaxed way of running a B&B.

We had booked 2 nights but on arrival we liked what we saw so decided to spend our remaining 3 nights in Devon at the same B&B. Stayed in room 3 with lovely views over the garden & hills. Great breakfasts with seconds of tea, coffee & toast if we wished. Very pleasant & friendly owners & the bathroom, toilet... More
