We stayed at Lobhill Farmhouse for two nights over the bank holiday weekend. The setting is wonderful, very peaceful with beautiful scenery. We were made to feel so welcome with warm homemade biscuits on arrival, fudge in the room and details from Jane on where to visit and eat in the area. The breakfast was lovely and we were dropped down the road for dinner so that we didn’t need to leave a car overnight. Very clean, lovely atmosphere and homely, would definitely recommend and will hopefully get to visit again!

From the freshly cooked biscuits on arrival to the woodland walks, the superbly cooked breakfast to the beautiful and spacious room, this was an exceptional stay. The offer of a drive to dinner was a hugely generous extra. Jane is running a B&B here that simply and authentically surpasses all expectations. Exceptional.

We have just spent a night at Lobhill Farmhouse as we had a dinner to attend at the nearby Lewtrenchard Manor. As we drove up the beautiful snowdrop lined drive, we were so pleased we had booked it. The location is beautiful and even on a damp March day it was such a pretty sight. The lovely views of the rolling green hills and the enchanting forest of trees that you are made very welcome to stroll through to the river were unexpected. We were kindly upgraded to the self contained detached cottage which was tastefully decorated and very clean. We were made to feel very welcome by Jane who clearly goes the extra mile for her guests. After a long night of partying at the manor, we had a great sleep in the very comfy bed and a fantastic full English breakfast in the morning. Our only regret was not be able to to stay longer and enjoy the surrounding area. We would highly recommend Lobhill Farmhouse to anyone looking for a short or longer break in this fabulous spot with great hospitality.

Right from the off upon booking over the phone, Jane (the owner) was amazingly helpful going above and beyond what we expected. This continued upon arrival at this beautiful old farm house. We enjoyed every part of our stay but there were two main highlights, the first being an afternoon walk around the picturesque grounds helped by a little map of where to go and what to see. Second was a GREAT breakfast served at the time of our choice (before 9) with enough choice for anyone! Jane`s hospitality was second to none and nothing we have experienced before in any B&B accomodation. We cant thank her enough for making our stay a truly lovely and relaxing experience. We would highly recommend this to anyone planning a break away. We will definately be going back again soon for a longer stay.

I know this place well having visited it many times. The beautiful old farmhouse is so welcoming that you immediately feel at home. Jane who runs it is a gem. So friendly and welcoming makes the stay even more special.

The rooms are so very tasteful and well equipped. Each has a different theme and are very stylish but not so posh that you feel uncomfortable. You just feel relaxed and totally at home. Jane also has a self catering stable cottage for a romantic getaway for two.

There is a downstairs bedroom which is very handy if you can't manage stairs and I found that all the rooms I had been in we're very spacious with beautiful countryside views.

Don't miss a chance to walk in the woods, see the lake and vineyard too if you have time.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone and personally think that Alistair Sawday's Guide has missed a trick!

Stayed here as in the area for both business and pleasure, Jane gave us a lovely welcome with warm biscuits on arrival and fudge in the room. We stayed in the Green Room which is very spacious, lovely furniture, comfy bed and spotlessly clean. Wifi connection was fine and I managed to work online with no problem at all, also watched BBC iPlayer and on Facebook with no issues.
Breakfast was generous and well cooked, scrambled eggs perfect every time and the fresh fruit gorgeous with caramelised bananas and apples - yum! The surrounding area is stunning, the walks onsite gorgeous and Tavistock is a must, especially the market. We ate at the Arscott Arms and had possibly the best pub meal we have ever experienced! Also tried the Chinese in Tavistock - The Bird's Nest - which was also very good.
Jane is the nicest host you could hope for, the property is really lovely, you won't go wrong staying here. We have rebooked for next year....just leisure this time!
