“Full marks to Beechwood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2008

My husband and I visited Dartmoor at the end of Feb/beg of March, wanting to stay in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park with good access to the walking routes, but with warm and comfortable accommodation to go to at the end of the day. In the cold of the February weather, we found Beechwood B&B to be a perfect base during our four-night five-day trip, with the hosts Andrew and Lorraine making our stay very welcome and interesting.

The pretty farm/cottage building was warm and cosy to sit and sip tea in the afternoons, chatting with other guests and playing with the two cats when the elements became too much.

The room we stayed was warm and comfortable, and we woke up every morning to delicious breakfast made with eggs from the free range chicken kept in the backyard and locally sourced bacon and sausages.

Due to its central location, it's perfectly placed for discovering Dartmoor during the day and unwinding in comfort in the evenings.

What a perfectly lovely little bed and breakfast right in the middle of Dartmoor - leave your car in the carpark and go walking over the moors.

It is actually far more than a simple B&B though as they also provide afternoon tea, and if you give them enough notice they can also do an evening meal for you - hence the sausage and mash title above!

Lovely rooms, neat and tidy with the usual tea making facilities. Bathroom clean although the shower a bit awkward!

The owners (plus cats!) could not have made us more welcome, we had a great time and will definitely be going back!

  • Liked — relaxed accomodation with accomodating owners!
  • Disliked — nothing!

Just returned from England, and we spent a few days in Dartmoor at the Beechwood B&B in Postbridge. This is more like an inn since there are about 6 rooms or so , with a wonderful outside garden and a great eating area overlooking the garden. The hosts, Andrew and Lorraine (and their 3 interesting cats) are an interesting young couple who come from a background of restaurants and serving the public. Breakfasts were excellent, and they will even make dinner if you ask ahead of time. We had wonderful conversations with them about a variety of topics, politics to tourism. In addition, there was a nice little pub with food within easy walking distance (and others within driving distance). Our room was great, with nice views. Price around $120 per night.

Postbridge is right in the center of Dartmoor---a little tiny village. Easy to get to other villages as well as hiking trails. And quiet, no traffic except the road running through the middle of the park. Loved the hiking--to Grimspound bronze-age village and Wistman's Woods, to name a couple. And it was such clean air.
