I spent three nights at this lovely B&B last weekend, whilst attending a photography course in the area. Tinhay Mill is a lovely old building and has been beautifully maintained by the very welcoming hosts, Margaret and Paul. As soon as I arrived i was glad that I had booked here. My bedroom was of a very reasonable size with... More

Margaret (joint proprietor) came into the car park to welcome us and escort us to our room, and gave us personal service for the whole stay. The room was very well decorated and comfortable, Margaret asked us if we would prefer fresh milk for our tea/coffee rather than the long life cartons on the hospitality tray. When we said yes...

A lovely couple run this quaint ancient B&B. Its a quirky building with sloping-floored bedrooms, winding narrow staircases, a magnificent fireplace that you walk round to get to the breakfast room. A beautiful place to stay in. Fabulous breakfast. Worth stopping off here for a night and while they no longer serve dinner, within walking distance is a great pub... More

The Tinhay is advertised by three booking agencies – EXPEDIA, HOTELS.COM and LASTMINUTE.COM as having a restaurant (for evening meals) and bar – IT DOES NOT - and has not had these facilities for some considerable time. As booking agencies these people have a duty to their customers to ensure that the details of the establishments on their lists are... More

For the fifth year my wife and I have returned to our favourite 'home from home' for a week of relaxation, good food and excellent company. We have tried other accomodation around the country when travelling but this is the only choice for our holiday. Margaret and Paul are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet and... More

I think the title sums up the Tinhay Mill. I do not think that I have been anywhere that has been so immaculately presented. Our room was large and spotlessly clean. The whole place had a wonderful feel and you knew that maximum effort has been put into pretty well everything. The breakfast is top class,Paul and Margaret are perfect... More

My husband, son and myself had a wonderful one night stay with Margaret and Paul at Tinhay Mill as the location was ideal for our visit to the Westcountry Wildlife Centre the next day. Everything was perfect: our rooms, the breakfast, advice on where to eat in the evening and attention to detail with regards to absolutely everything - even... More

On arrival at Tinhay Mill, our party of five were made to feel very welcome by Margaret. The rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious. The guesthouse has lots of character and it is maintained to an extremely high standard. The breakfast was excellent and we were particularly impressed with the high standard of service. Margaret and Paul were really... More

On a touring holiday around Devon and Cornwall, we chose Tinhay because of it's location being central to both coasts. We thought it would be alright for the two nights planned. In fact it was much more than "alright", it was superb! Margaret and her husband welcomed us to their long established and charming guest house like old friends. We... More

Had a lovely one night stay in tinhay mill, Paul and Margaret made me very welcome. Great advice regarding where to eat for my evening meal, defiantly recommend the courthouse for good pub dinning.
