“There's nothing low about it..........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

I wanted somewhere small in a great location with lovely food, and I couldn't have been more delighted with Lower Greenway Farm. I read the other reviews and they were spot on. From the initial enquiry and booking to the service whilst there, you couldn't want for friendlier more accommodating hosts. Nothing is too much trouble whether it's dietary requirements, tips for things to do locally or information on the assorted livestock in the grounds.

The location is simply beautiful, a Grade 2 listed house which has been refurbished and furnished in soft, natural tones. There are assorted hens, geese, ducks and turkeys that wander about the grounds, which along with the pigs and cattle add to the ambience and provide a lovely soundtrack to the stay. We stayed in Room One which has beautiful views over the grounds and river. The bed is extremely comfortable and adorned with lovely crisp bedlinen. The bathroom is large with a lovely large shower and a sumptuous bath with a view.

However as glorious as the surroundings are, they are met and perhaps even superceded by Paul, the chefs culinary talents. I had booked tea for the afternoon, and it was simply lovely; cake and the lightest, fluffiest freshly baked warm scones accompanied by jam and clotted cream. But great though it was, it was nothing compared to dinner. A starter of beautifully cooked scallops, chorizo and pepper followed by meltingly tender fillet steak, asparagus, truffle mash, maple carrots and roast beetroot with mustard seeds was concluded by a trio of puds; chocolate fondant, sticky toffee pudding, pear and almond tart each having a dollop of ice cream or cream to accompany it. It really was a fantastic meal.

As if we could face more food for breakfast (we managed it somehow) there was a choice of cereals, a platter of prepared tropical fruit, fruit compote, yoghurt then followed by a lovely full English incorporating homemade sausage and cured bacon.

So, if you want fabulous food, surroundings and a great welcome Lower Greenway Farm is the place to go.

We have just returned from our second visit to Lower Greenway Farm, we had a fantastic two night stay. As soon as we walked through the door and put the kettle on it was like we were back home. Paul looked after us again brilliantly, his food was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. The only good thing about leaving, was hopefully reducing our rapidly expanding waistlines and also looking forward to booking again to come back in the Summer!

We found Lower Greenway Farm whilst looking for somewhere to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.
On arrival, we were delighted with the location, fabulous views together with the warmest of welcomes from Sean was more than we could have hoped for.
The property itself is what dreams are made from, on the banks of the Dart, several hundred years of wear on the flafstone floor with our room overlooking the greenway estate down to the river itself.
Immaculately clean, beautifully decorated with a giant, high quality six foot bed with crisp white bed linen.
I had taken the opportunity to book the three course meal which was nothing short of sensational. Paul appeared to take the whole day preparing our supper which included cheese souffle', lobster followed by a triage of deserts.
In writing this, selfishly I think of the times in the future that I want this place just for us but write this review full of praise and thinking romantically of the next time we return.

Our stay in September was a real treat! From the moment we arrived to the minute we left we were looked after superbly by Paul our talented host.
The breakfast which was both plentiful and delicious was a great start to the day! We decided to have the 3 course dinner in the evening which was again an absolute triumph.
Our accommodation was extremely comfortable with luxurious bedding, beautiful views and a bath made for two "very romantic"...
We would love to stay again sometime.
Thank you very much

We chose Lower Greenway Farm for a short break for many reasons, the location and it's proximity to a National Trust property was probably top of the list. We also appreciated having dinner on our first evening and when we stay again would choose to eat in always. It was a privilege to be able to use the sitting room as our own, our bedroom was spacious and we appreciate the style of the furnishings. The view is wonderful. The cream tea Paul served us on arrival was glorious, the scones the best I have ever tasted. It was fun to watch the hens and geese running around. After a day of sightseeing it was a perfect place to go back to although somewhere to sit and relax in the garden would be a bonus.

Room Tip: Choose Bedroom One, larger bathroom with bath and walk in shower, great view.

We spent a week at Lower Greenway during October half term 2012 with 2 other families. Our party was 6 adults, 2 teenage girls and 2 teenage boys.
Firstly - the accommodation. The house is beautifully furnished with really comfy living areas and bedrooms. There's lots of room for everyone and the views are stunning. The beds are super snuggly and we all slept really well. The location is wonderful, rural and secluded but with local ferries and the steam train within easy walking distance. It's a real farm with chickens, geese, ducks, pigs, turkeys etc.
Secondly - our host, Paul. He is absolutely brilliant. The breakfasts are amazing. There's everything you can think of and it's all delicious! Paul cooked for us most nights and his food is superb. We had amongst other things roast pork, steak and ale pie, boullabaise, lobster, sea bass, mussels, spag bol and it was all fab! It was Paul who made our trip extra special - nothing was too much trouble, from lighting the fire for our arrival to homemade scones for a take home gift!
We have booked a house with the same families for a week once a year for 10 years or so and we all agreed this was our best trip - especially the teenagers, who loved it!
We are trying to find excuses to re-visit asap and we thoroughly recommend Lower Greenway Farm! Good Luck Paul, Sean & Victoria!!

I am going to add my thoughts about this truly wonderful B&B to all the others. A chance find whilst searching through google, we booked and hoped for the best. Luckily that was exactly what we got! My husband and I stayed with our two daughters and loved the food, the beautiful setting and the gorgeous setting. Perfect for families and couples alike, I can heartily recommend it. We will be back!
