Stayed for a business trip and would normally have been booked into a nearby dull hotel but I am SO glad I found my own place to stay this time. The Dolish Farmhouse has been brilliantly restored into a large home with B&B and self catering accommodation. I stayed in the Hense Moor room which has been well furnished including...

Thank you so much for your very detailed and helpful review of your stay at Dolish. W'ere glad you liked the huge bathroom adjacent to "Hense Moor" bedroom with its historic (renovated!) original roll-top bath. (For the benefit of other prospective guests, we do of course also have en-suite accommodation as an alternative, like our superking "Hartridge" room which includes...

My husband and I stayed at this delightful B&B for two nights whilst attending a local wedding. The Hartridge bedroom was lovely with an extremely comfortable bed. The property owners were very friendly and we were made to feel really welcome. I would not hesitate to recommend this hidden gem.

Many thanks for your recommendation. Very glad you found Hartridge to be such a comfortable room. It is certainly very spacious and almost all our room guests find the 6 foot superking bed with memory foam matress to be supremely comfortable. Having a good sized sofa in the room also helps to make it a relaxing space. We hope you...

What a stunning farmhouse B&B! Jane and Jonathan welcomed us into their lovingly converted home for a weekend stay in the Blackdown Hills. Nothing was too much trouble and the room was really comfortable with the best shower ever in the en-suite. The freshly cooked farmhouse breakfast was delicious and we wouldn't hesitate to return for more.

Thank you for sharing your views of your stay at Dolish Farmhouse! We're so pleased that you enjoyed this special part of East Devon and that you found your accommodation here comfortable. We think providing good showers is essential. Our showers provide a good volume of water rather than a small pinpoint flow at high pressure...you don't to be "jet-washed"...

Thank you for your comprehensive and positive appraisal of your visit to Dolish Farmhouse.

We initially contacted Dolish on basis of trip advisor reviews, first contact with Jane was enough to convince my wife this was the place for us and we weren't disappointed.

“If you are tempted to self cater, this is the happy compromise! the Cider Loft is a part of the B and B, you get the personal advice and service, but breakfast when you choose, and cook your own meals if you fancy, though there are plenty of good restaurants and pubs around (though not within walking distance).”
