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

Just returned from a 5 night stay and have no complaints whatsoever. The room (5) was clean and comfortable with a lovely view. Breakfast was first class and the owners polite, friendly and helpful. The garden is an ornithologists dream. Will definately stay again

David and John made me very welcome from the moment I arrived after a very long and tedious journey. My lovely room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bed was great with a really good mattress. The hospitality tray was well stocked with a selection of Fair Trade drinks, plus biscuits and even some toffees. Plenty of towels plus fine... More

Sadly only spent one night at this establishment! We were greeted by David when unpacking our car and from then onwards he couldn't do enough for us! I'm a poor sleeper at the best of times, however I had the best nights sleep I'd had in along time! Breakfast was amazing! Never tasted mushrooms as nice!

My sister and I stayed at Overcombe House recently, we had such a lovely time David and John really made us welcome. We had a beautiful room with views over the moors and it was so quiet we slept really well, the beds were perfect. Loved the bathroom extremely clean with everything you need, especially the big white fluffy towels.... More

Excellent stay, lovely breakfast, clean comfortable, a change to have fresh milk instead of those little nasty pots you get in most place's, hospitality brilliant, I do agree with one comment, garden needs a tidy to enable you to have a sit out after breakfast, I do appreciate the wildlife aspect, but as there is no lounge on a sunny...

what a great five night stay with friendly attentive hosts David and John- lovely clean and well furnished room- wonderful breakfast for two hungry cyclists- so convenient for walkers and cyclists to enjoy The Drakes Trail - which passes just a 100 metres from the hotel--this meanders through the valleys from Tavistock to Plymouth and is mostly traffic free- well...
