“You get what you pay for- ok but sadly wouldn't go back.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Location of the B and B is lovely and the breakfast was food.Sadly the house and room is very dated and there was no heating on at all during the night of our stay.Our double bed consisted of two single beds pushed together and was very uncomfortable.The room was dated and not the cleanest.Thankfully I was able to have a nice hot shower in the morning.Value for money but next time we will pay the extra £30 and stay elsewhere.

Room was neat and clean. Location was easily found from directions provided. Breakfast was very good. Parking good. Only spent the night but was satisfied. I would use this facility again. Excellent place to stop for the night

Stayed at Cookshayes recently for a few days. Found the establishment to be a decent find, especially since we were allowed to bring our dog along. The decor was somewhat dated but the room was spacious and the location ideal for access to Dartmoor.
Overall i'd go back again

We stayed at this b&b for two nights in August 2012. Yes, it is dated but if you can look past this then you will enjoy your time in this amazing National Park. For the money we paid we cannot complain. Its location is great, just a few miles down the road you enter the park. It's 2 mintues walk from the village centre also. The breakfast was very nice and filling. We did not have any evening food at the b&b. Please do not go expecting 5 stars.

The photo on the web site looks pleasant. But beware, close up the place looks past it's best, and in need of some major tlc - externally. Internally we managed to get in the entrance hall before disappointment overcame us. As for the bedroom, it smelt musty, dusty and damp. Decor was old and bland. The toilet/bathroom was, strangely, next door in the hallway and very near the front door. Nice if you like walking around in a towel in full view of the passing public. We did not venture further than the bedroom/hallway, as we went to find alternative accommodation in the town (also reviewed). Finally, we booked a standard double and was given a twin - not impressed. However, I gave this a 2 star rating purely on the grounds that the owner was was true to his word, and refunded our deposit.

Room Tip: If you stay here you may have to look hard for a decent room. It depends on what you are prepared to...

Just spent a really pleasant couple of days with Barry & Team on the edge of the moor. Thoroughly welcoming people and delightful surroundings. Decor is not snazzy and up to date but if we wanted boutique would have gone to Bath or London. Food generous and top notch homemade fare. Relaxed and just like home from home.
