From the moment I booked our stay at Velwell House I received a wealth of warmth and hospitality. Upon arrival We were greeted at the drive with a wave and smile, helped with our cases to our room, and provided with home made cream scones and tea in the guests sitting room which provided stunning views across the country side....

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!

We had a fabulous three night stay while we attended a late night dance weekend locally. The whole experience was perfect, from the smell of home baked bread in the morning, home made marmalades at breakfast, the beautiful artworks throughout the house, through to the spacious and very comfortable bedroom. There was even ample room for our yoga mat to... More

Just returned from an Easter break and the title sums it up. Val and Gareth are great hosts and we were made welcome from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble. The 2 rooms are large and comfortably furnished to a high standard. The bed was most comfortable and guarantees a good night's rest. Wifi was included as... More

A return visit to Velwell House B&B and it was a real treat. A lovely house full of art in a great location, beautiful views across the Devon hills towards Dartmoor. A warm welcome, attention to detail and a delicious breakfast set us up perfectly for the day. Thanks for a great stay, we will be returning again. 5 Stars.

Velwell House is everything and more that anyone could want from a bed and breakfast. It is clean, stylish and from the moment you arrive you are immediately made to feel welcome and at home by Val and her Husband. I have stayed in 5 star hotels before and not received the same level of friendliness and service that Val... More
