It's hard to do justice to this stylish accommodation, built in the branches of a glorious English oak,...breathtakingly beautiful down to the last detail. If you're looking for a romantic break with a difference or a special night away with your children then this could well be it. Set in the grounds of a stunning country hotel you have the... More

If you would like to fish for trout, sea trout and salmon on the River Taw in beautiful, wild countryside with the Tarka railway popping in and out of the beat.... If you want a hotel with big breakfasts, decent accommodation, a fair selection of beers, good bar food......If you want to seek help from the friendly local staff or... More

A charming hotel set in beautiful surroundings with courteous and helpful staff. The only drawback was finding ourselves in a room next to a couple who were only able to talk to each other in ear damaging decibels. At 2am in the morning it was not a restful experience. Next day, the manager was very helpful and moved us to... More

I have taken a while to ponder my review of this hotel and I have the following conclusions - I would love to try the tree house it looks magical, but very expensive in August - The staff are wonderful - Its in the middle of no where, but an hours drive to both Dartmoor and Exmoor - The breakfast...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do appreciate the comments; even the not so positive ones. In response to your more negative comments, whilst we strive to give all guests with dogs rooms as close to the front door as possible, on occasions we have to allow dogs into bedrooms elsewhere to be able to...

I stayed in the treehouse not the hotel so this is purely based on the treehouse. It's was incredible value for money, it was such a relief to be pleasantly surprised upon arrival. It's the perfect romantic break, one you'll never forget. I was so impressed with how all the nice fixtures inside which would not be out of place... More

As a regular to Canopy & Stars we booked a weekend in a Tree house through there website. And we were not disappointed. This tree house is truly magical. In fact we did not want to leave. The interior of the Tree house is stunning. My husband is an avid fly fisherman and he was able to buy a day... More

Extremely friendly staff for ones so young, but it was obvious that their training was to ensure every visitor was well catered for. The restaurant food was fantastic, the location peacefull. If there was a negative, it would be that the bedrooms seem quite bland.

This is a very nice country hotel based on its great location and is obviously well established. I stayed as part of a fishing break and was made to feel very welcome. Its location to the river and quality of beats is outstanding. The room was clean and tidy and it seemed to me most of the staff are keen... More

Thank you and it's wonderful that you enjoyed your visit with us. I would like to mention that it is rare for us to have so many four legged friends visiting so most times we don't find them to inconvenience our other guests. I am sorry if your dining experience was in any way spoiled by this and we look... More

I booked a double room as a last minute deal, it's a great hotel in a beautiful location,no traffic noise. good value and fantastic food, we will be staying there again and it's definitely worth booking the treehouse out the back!

We were looking for somewhere special for a birthday weekend, that would appeal to adults but be fun for children, too, and we can't imagine anything that would have fitted the bill better. Close to the hotel (and its friendly, helpful staff) but not overlooked, the treehouse has everything required for a truly luxurious break, with endless thoughtful little touches,... More
