Downton Lodge is a really top-class B&B which provides excellent accommodation with really comfortable rooms, a great welcome & a wonderful, varied breakfast menu. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a restful, luxurious place to stay & relax.

The shower with spring water was a pleasant surprise and the afternoon cake was a treat after a long day of site seeing. Breakfast was... More

Great place for a calm and relaxing stay. Ian and Karen were wonderful hosts and catered for our problematic diets (veggie and a wheat allergy) without any fuss at all. Guest room was comfortable, clean and had lovely views. Breakfast was fab and afternoon cake was a bonus! Location is great, quiet with good access into Dittisham and Dartmouth. Would... More

Funnily enough we used Tripadvisor to find a place to stay whilst on holiday on the Scilly Isles to break up the return journey to London, as we've been wanting to visit Mitch Tonks' fish and chip shop 'Rockfish' in Dartmouth for ages. Downton Lodge seemed to come very highly recommended so we went with that. So glad we did... More

Perfect place and just as described on the website. Great room which was spotlessly clean, with a very comfortable bed with lovely bedlinen and fluffy white towels in the bathroom. Delicious breakfast every morning and Karen and Ian went out of their way to make sure I had plenty of yummy gluten free food for breakfast. The cakes (gluten free... More

What a beautifully peaceful, exquisitely decorated and spotlessly clean place to stay when on holiday in Devon, with Dartmouth and all its charm just a stones throw away.There were sea views on one side and beautiful views of Dartmoor on the other and a lovely garden to look out onto. Our hosts attended to our every need and were especially... More

A superb place to stay. The house is beautiful and obviously loved by its careful owners. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and so well planned, with even a little lounge on the landing, equipped with sink, fridge and cold water. It is in an incredibly delightful spot with views to die for. It was great having the little balcony to sit... More

Downton Lodge is ideal for those that want a peaceful break and only a few minutes from Dartmouth. We have stayed at Downton Lodge every year for about the last 5 years, when visiting Dartmouth we wouldn't stay any where else! Karen and Ian are perfect hosts, their house and rooms are beautiful, the breakfast is lovely and fresh with... More

This was our third stay with Ian and Karen, and again wehad the perfect break. The rooms and the house are beautiful with every comfort provided. We also enjoyed the use of the small lounge with cake and a variety of drinks provided, as we were with friends and so could all sit and chat together. Many thanks to our... More
