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.

When I drove into Upcott House my heart fell, I had stayed here five years ago and vowed never to return, but I had been won over by dog friendly and some good reviews. As we pulled up at the house entrance, we were met by the contrasting sight of an electric car charging point, smashed lavatory bowls, builders rubble... More

Why did you return if you had such a poor experience last time? Your comments are completely out of kilter with those made by our other guests staying at the time. Do stay somewhere else next time as we will definitely not let you stay in our house ever again. More

We had a pleasant stay at Upcott House. Our room was nice and clean and the bed was comfy. It was a little cold when we arrived, but warmed up after the boiler was stoked. The property itself is very impressive with a lot of history and lovely grounds. I'm sure in the summer it is fabulous (a little bleak... More

We are sorry that were disappointed in your stay with us at our B&B. We are surprised at your comments as they are extremely inconsistent with other reviews and wonder why it has taken you 12 weeks to comment thus.

Country house with a warm welcome, relaxed atmophere, large comfortable rooms and views to die for. This is amazing value for money at under £50 a night. The bed was lovely, neither soft or hard. There was room for a table and easy chairs, dressing table and built in hanging space. There was fresh milk in your room, with breakfasts... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Upcott House is an Eco Friendly B&B. Set in 4.5 acres of Devon countryside in the Okement Valley overlooking Dartmoor, the location is peaceful but only a 10 minute walk from town. The house is an elegant Edwardian property - big but not a hotel - very much a family home. We welcome guests who have children and dogs. Buster our Jack Russell particularly enjoys the company. We endeavor to set a Green example to our guests in the interests of lowering our carbon footprint and offer a 10% discount to those who travel to us by sustainable means i.e. on foot, bicycle or electric car. We have two electric cars ourselves and for a small fee would be happy to pick you up from the airport or Exeter - there being no proper connection between Exeter and Okehampton after about 6.00 p.m. on the bus and no train connection at all. 90% of our goods and services are provided locally thus reducing the use of fossil fuel transport. We have a 10kw solar PV array in our paddock, rainwater harvesting, recycling, our own boreholes and practice energy conservation. Your breakfast will be served downstairs or in your room. It is freshly cooked and has either home grown, home reared or local produce i.e. our own eggs and bacon, home made preserves or honey from George and Margaret Tomkin from Vivian's Honey in Hatherleigh. Vegetarian and special diets can be easily catered for with advance notice please. There is plenty of off street parking, safe storage for bikes and an electric car charging station for your use. The grounds contain many species of bird life and the garden is a quiet and safe haven for children and adults alike. Make a visit to see the piggies while you are with us. They are Tamworth crossed with Sandy Blacks and very comical. Coming soon will be some goats in the paddock. Imported for their ability to eat our brambles and for their milk because we really like goats cheese. ... more   less
