Overcombe house is a gem. Had a spacious twin room, with a great view. Comfortable beds, cosy duvets and a generous size ensuite, everything spotless. Free wifi. Breakfasts first class, with a variety of choice. John's mushroom with thyme, so,so tasty. Well done fellows that you make the effort to source things locally. Breakfasts made more interesting by gazing at... More

My wife and I stayed here over a long weekend to attend a friend's wedding in the area. David and John were more than accomodating and always willing to answer any questions I had before we arrived. As soon as we arrived, David was greeting us and offering to help with all our bags and couldn't do enough for us.... More

Proprietors David & John have got it right here. The room we had was very comfortable and spotless with every facility provided down to the shower gel and shampoo which were excellent quality. The breakfast was top quality and there was an excellent choice. Again, the dining room was well appointed and organised so that there was ample room between... More

David & John who run this B&B were very welcoming and could not do enough to please and oblige. Our room on the first floor was spotless, of a good size, with a large bed in it and nice views of Dartmoor in the distance. As others have mentioned in their reviews, the breakfasts are terrific. As for things to... More

Our second stay at Overcombe House was again made very welcoming by David and John. Our room boasted beautiful views, and an extremely comfortable 6 foot wide bed! The room was immaculate and well equipped; including all refreshments needed. Breakfast was always amazing; choices were plentiful and nothing was too much trouble. Without doubt will visit again! The location is... More

This gorgeous little B&B gets a 5* rather than a 4* review from us primarily due to it's incredible staff David and John! We booked at extremely late notice due to needing a place to stay after a family tragedy before Christmas; and location for us to be with other family members was key. Perhaps slightly on the pricey side... More

My partner and I decided last minute to go for a couple of nights in the countryside to have a break from the city. We also wanted a gay friendly B&B and we were lucky to find this one. The owners were extremely friendly and waited for us as we arrived later than expected (because of the traffic). We got... More
