What a treat to come to a guest house like this with such friendly hosts. Ernie and Hilary could not have been more helpful. The rooms where large and spotlessly clean, great shower to help me unwind after some sooty work earlier in the day. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to stay in the area. Hope to... More

The hosts were very friendly and gave good local knowledge and helped in getting our taxi sorted. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order... More

What a wonderful B&B, right in the heart of Dartmoor National Park. Great central location for visiting local attractions and walking on the Moor. Hosts Ernie and Hilary could not be more welcoming. They make you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Breakfast is amazing, cooked to order and... More

Our most recent stay at this Princetown B&B was last weekend. We were in the en-suite double which is a very large comfortable room with good size bathroom including a very large walk-in shower with loads of piping hot water. Ideal to wash off all the dirt and sweat after a long day walking across Dartmoor. Location wise it is... More

Stayed in Duchy House for two nights late in April. One of the loveliest B&Bs I've ever stayed in. The room was large and spotless, the bed was comfy, and the breakfast, oh the breakfast.... Stay there if you can!

This is the second time I have come to Duchy House and again I enjoyed a very comfortable night and a delicious breakfast in the morning. Pub serving excellent evening meal just 50 yards away. Couldn't be better placed! The hosts are very friendly. A stay at Duchy House is very reasonably priced. All in all, ten out of ten.

An excellent base for exploring Dartmoor and one could not have more friendly and helpful hosts. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and both Ernie and Hillary will do all in their power to make you feel 'at home'. Well worth a visit.
