Mount Tavy Cottage can only be described as luxury, it's beautiful. Set in wonderful grounds location a few minutes outside Tavistock, the house itself feels like a family home where you, as the guest, quickly become part of the family. The bedrooms are really comfortable and cosy but it's the bathroom that blows you away! Roll top baths, I'm a... More

This is a very characterful guest-house and I was made to feel welcome, with a jug of real coffee and mints, despite a late arrival. It is very homely - I found myself thinking "when I get home tonight I'll go for a walk". Expect pleasantly old-fashioned surroundings (wooden beams, "un-modern" nice chairs etc), and a very comfortable, well-equipped &... More

Perfect. Location, accommodation and facilities were all ideal. Graham and Jo could not have done more for us. We will be staying here again for sure! We had a brilliant time as a family of 5. Dartmoor on our doorstep - what moor could you want (see what I did there?).

What a fantastic place to stay, set in beautiful surrounding countryside and ideally located within walking distance of Tavistock centre. We stayed in the Potting Shed which was just as charming and delightful as it sounds. Such a warm welcoming place to stay and a big thank you to Heather and Poppy the dog for being so hospitable particularly to... More

This place is great. 4 of us arrived on a Saturday afternoon on bicycles and the owners couldn't have been nicer to us. They even made us a smashing breakfast on Sunday morning in their beautiful garden. This place really is a gem, I don't have a bad word to say about it. I guess it wouldn't be suitable for... More

We stayed (2 adults, 2 young children) in the Woodshed for a month during January. It was super cosy with the rayburn and woodburner. Right outside was Nelson the horse which my children really loved patting and feeding the occasional apple (check with the owners first). All safe catering facilities are there including microwave, iron, ironing board, cooker, cutlery etc.... More

We stayed for a week , the owners are very friendly and helpful. We had 2 cottages , they were very comfortable .All very well equipped. Just one small gripe , please be careful with the towel rail as it gets boiling hot .Other than that the place is well worth a try
