Just returned from a two night stay, would highly recommend a stay in this superb B&B. We took the option of evening meals which were excellent Chris should be very proud of his skills in the kitchen as the meals we had were of top quality restaurant standard. Bedroom was perfect. All around a faultless stay

We stayed for 3 nights at The Old School Guesthouse. Our hosts Maxine and Chris, were extremely friendly and welcoming and the accommodation was spotless and comfortable. The breakfasts were great with lots of choice. The attention to detail is evident and along with the decor makes for a 5* experience.

Best guest house we've ever been! Maxine, the owner, is lovely! She makes you feel at home, not to mention the best omelette I've ever had. We didn't explore Dartmoor as the main aim of our trip was to visit the Eden Project (an hour away) and we were only there for the weekend. Maxine is always full of ideas... More

Maxine has it just right. A small family run guesthouse with all the comforts of home. My bed was extremely comfortable and breakfast was just superb. Kind of expected when the cook is a trained chef.

We spent two very comfortable nights with Maxine and Chris. The house is ideally situated for visiting places of interest in the area. There are a number of National Trust venues within easy reach. Maxine is very helpful when it comes to recommending places to visit. The food is superb and we were made to feel very much at home.... More

We had a room that had a private bath just outside our room. Beautiful room, very comfortable bed, even had a nice... More

We spent 4 very happy nights at The Old School Guesthouse. We loved the room which was spacious with a large en suite and with a lovely view of the village. There's lots of storage space and all the fittings are top quality, although I did find the bed too firm for a really restful sleep. We really appreciated the... More
