Fresh milk in a flask was put on doorstep each evening - a nice touch. Lovely room with large kingsize bed and nice en-suite. Good tea and coffee...

Gill and Dave are great hosts, food excellent locally sourced, home made bread own eggs, good comfortable room spotlessly clean and the views are breath-taking. We will be back, hope your apricot and lavender jam did well at the produce fair. Our family really enjoyed the eggs, Thanks for a great stay.

Spent 3 nights a t Appledown House and enjoyed it immensely. The accommodation is great, being very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts, served with the most stunning views to Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor, are superb as only locally sourced produce (including their own free rang eggs) is used. You have to try the sausages! Gill and Dave are terrific...
