5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great base for a short stay. One of the best Guest Houses I've stayed in. Great feel about the old building, Kate & Nathan were very helpful with recommends & directions to local restaurants/pubs. Excellent breakfast, not 'padded out' with a plate full of baked beans! Would recommend to a friend.

Well run establishment which has been professionally converted and with friendly hosts. Convenient for pub and main road but not noisy. Plus points include basics like proper parking on site and wifi. (Rooms don't have own TVs but frankly that keeps noise down and if you are desperate you can use a device or go to the lounge.)

Kate and Nathan were friendly and made us feel very welcome indeed. The Mill is near the main A38, yet tucked away in beautiful surroundings. It was a fantastic base for us to do some walking on Dartmoor as well as explore the South Devon coast. The room was nicely furnished, spotlessly clean and the views were stunning!

What a gem of a find. Kate and Nathan were the perfect hosts and shared their home with us in a very relaxed way. We had freedom of the garden and freedom to come and go. Great breakfasts and superb coffee. The honesty bar was another great idea at the end of a hard day of yoga!! Easy to find,... More

Whilst house-hunting in the area we stayed with Kate and Nathan in their beautiful Old Mill. Everything you could possibly need. Despite being in tranquil countryside it is within walking distance of a restaurant, has an honesty bar, beautiful gardens and a delicious breakfast. Charming and helpful hosts with great local knowledge.
