We have just returned after staying the night here. Ideal location for the Polar Express experience. Lovely house with beautiful features. The children loved the massive Christmas tree, especially as they were invited to help themself to a chocolate decoration!! The owners were so friendly, welcoming and helpful which was so lovely! Room was ideal for what we needed, good... More

Very nice period accommodation, warm, clean, comfortable and ideally located for the Polar Express. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and cooked us a lovely breakfast so we were fully prepared for our return journey.

A sturdy Edwardian house with magnificent views to Dartmoor over Okehampton. Hosts Kay and John are charming and helpful. Breakfasts were substantial, offering a fair choice. Bedroom was comfy, the shower with power. Good wi-fil available.

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
