All you can expect from a perfect accommodation you will find here. Except if you are looking for something in town center and noisy. ;-) I have to fill in 200 characters, so let me also mention that the Val and Gareth who run the place are the same standard as their house is (refer to the title of the...

We have just spent two nights in a very beautiful B&B. It is very very clean and very spacious and the house is full of paintings and artworks. The house also affords beautiful views of the Devon countryside. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and provided an excellent breakfast. Most impressive of all was the huge sitting room which... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Velwell House in May for 6 nights after reading the rave reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! (Sorry for the delayed review). We were looking for a quiet break in the country and this was perfect. The area is so quiet and relaxing but you are just a short car ride... More

This has to be my favourite B&B. The house is full of great artwork, the rooms spotless and well furnished, gardens perfect to relax in - and the breakfasts! Oh those breakfasts! Why can't all B&B's be like this!

Anyone wanting to know what the perfect B&B looks like should come and stay at Velwell House. Val and Gareth are friendly and relaxed, it's a bit like staying with really good friends. Food is very special, rooms are nicely furnished, and very clean. Everything worked well. We even experienced 3D TV for the first time!
