Went to the exhibition biennial Doddiscombsleigh Art Exhibition and stayed overnight at this B&B on the recommendation of the adjacent Nobody Inn. Basically the old manor house with the most recent addition being (we think) Georgian. Perfect quiet and rural setting, ideal if you like being left to yourself - affable host Nick did precisely that. Room 5 was HUGE, tastefully decorated and dotted with interesting pieces of furniture. Mattress in the four poster was very comfy. Breakfast option is either continental style left in your room to self cater or a stroll through the garden to the Nobody Inn for a full English. Highly recommended.
