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

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

On a walking holiday comfortable beds are vital. You will not be disappointed here. The whole place is spotless and the owners David and John are excellent hosts and John is an excellent chef. They have run the hotel for the past 10 years and have extensive local knowledge.

David and John are extremely friendly, helpful and unique characters. We felt welcomed as soon as we arrived, in fact even before then. Our room was lovely with all the amenities required. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and local produce. They were attentive when required and cooked to order, which is always a benefit. I would recommend... More
