Very friendly owners, so accommodating to our change of plans which was great! The house is beautiful and our room really was amazing. A four poster bed and a balcony overlooking the large garden and rolling Devon hills. We were made to feel very at home and really enjoyed ourselves. Breakfast was a treat, home reared bacon, sausage and eggs,... More

We stayed overnight at Upcott House on a trip down to the West Country. The cooked breakfast was lovely and having it served in our room (at no extra charge!) was a real treat. The decor was in keeping with the period of the property and having a (huge) four poster bed made us feel like royalty. Meeting the animals... More

Stopped at Upcott House this weekend to take the family to the Polar Express event at Okehampton station. Very friendly and comfortable. A lovely period property with a lot of history. Breakfast excellent and would not hesitate to stay again.

We arrived on a cold and windy night to a warm and welcoming house. The rooms were spacious and clean, and the decor reflected the period of the house. We enjoyed a beautifully cooked full English breakfast including bacon and sausage from the owner's own pigs and homemade jams. The hosts were very helpful, giving us local recommendations for food... More

The rooms were very large and slightly cold when we arrived but soon warmed up. Unfortunately, my friend had a very dirty toilet in his room on arrival and passport photos of teenagers posted onto the mirror in the bathroom. He cleaned the toilet himself even though I felt he should have let the hosts know. This would have made... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed the fresh home cooked breakfast and the sandwiches which we provided for you. The toilets were certainly not dirty on arrival and are a cleaned daily. There were no passport photos on the mirror but one of the mirrors is antique and does have a picture of a heron on it. The beds have... More

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
