David and John are excellent and welcoming hosts who made us feel at home immediately. Our room was lovely and comfortable with super views and our breakfasts very well cooked and presented. The produce is locally sourced and the provision made for recycling a cracking idea too. Bird watching while enjoying breakfast is a lovely way to start the day.... More

Stayed here on many occasions and still can't find any reasons to stay elsewhere in the area. Lovely rooms, always clean and tidy, comfortable beds, great views across the moor, fabulous breakfasts, ideal location, bus stop a few yards away, right on drakes trail so walks a must. Hosts are great. If your not sure where to stay then you... More

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

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
