Arrived at " Tinhay Mill " after a long day traveling and an evening working in Launceston. Arrived during a rain shower and was greeted by a very friendly hostess. As soon as she opened the door the warmth and smell of a real fire was apparent and I soon forgot the weather. After a quick chat about food, breakfast... More

What a fantastic guesthouse! Lovely warm welcome, comfortable and well-furnished room with some nice little touches. I had a great night's sleep, very comfortable bed and so quiet. And the breakfast-amazing!! Very nice couple who run it, I will definitely be coming back for a social visit!

Arrived at dusk after a long journey. There was a musty smell in the house and the temperature throughout was cool but upon request my radiator was turned up and warmed my room quite quickly. Very welcoming and the bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately there wasn't a radiator in the bathroom to dry towels on and the towels... More

Dear Margaret we would like to thank you for your feedback and apologise for the lack of fire during your stay. As I am writing this to you (7th December) there are two gentlemen installing a brand new log burner as well as lining the chimney and fitting a new chimney pot and guard. Unfortunately two days before your visit... More

The Tinhay Mill Guest House is on the main street of the sleepy little town of Lifton in Devon. Its location served our purpose well, which was to visit castles in Devon and neighboring Cornwall. We had a twin room – not always easy to find – with a good sized bathroom, full tea service and ample closet space. Other:... More

We stayed at the Tinhay Mill in September, as it looked so nice from the photos on their website. If anything, it's even nicer than it looks in the photos. We received a very friendly welcome on arrival and our room was really sumptuous and cosy. The bed was so comfy I could have stayed there all day! The breakfast... More

I stayed here on a motorbike tour of west Devon and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The single room was compact but very comfortable, dinner in the evening was great and breakfast next morning lovely, including proper butchers sausages, always a sign of a quality breakfast. Situated on the old road from Launceston to Okehampton, a much better way if you... More

Suzanne & Stephen are excellent hosts..... welcoming and helpful. Our room was delightful and very well appointed. There were extras we appreciated such a bottled water and wifi. We also really enjoyed the tasty full English breakfasts. We would love to make a return visit and thoroughly recommend others to stay at Tinhay Mill.
