We stayed for two nights in July and our overal feeling is that Lydford Country House is good value for money. Our room was very clean. The bed was good, wifi worked well, etc. Only downside was the shower, as there was no mount on the wall. That made showering a clumsy affair. The breakfast is a simple full english... More

Off the beaten track with plenty of walking and cycling opportunities on the doorstep. Busy village pub about 1/2 mile away in nearby village. Hotel has in spacious grounds and whilst quaint on the outside it's clean and bright inside. Nice touches like communal lounge to retire to. Friendly, knowledgeable staff.

All round awesomeness. Very welcoming, lovely room, warm atmosphere, lovely staff, tasty breakfast. Couldn't fault a single thing. Night time - go outside and enjoy the stunning skies and millions of stars.

I spent three nights at the Lydford Country House hotel in late June as a base to go walking across Dartmoor. I was apprehensive as to what I might have booked, so was very pleasantly surprised by finding a lovely country hotel, well run, friendly, homely, and professional throughout. I was won over almost immediately by the charm and courtesy... More

The hotel in in a secluded part of Devon, near Okehampton. The hotel is beautifully clean, which I cannot fault at all, the electrics and pumps in the bathrooms are slightly noises and walls paper thin, but in general cannot faulted. The food I the other hand was awful; my "rare" 8oz steak was more like shoe leather, my grandmothers... More

an ideal stopover location for a journey from the midlands to cornwall welcoming, characterful and importantly for us - pet [cat] friendly. Near to Lydford Gorge a well known West Country beauty spot on the edge of Dartmoor. Would certainly return.

Beautiful place, nice people, the standard of cleaning of the rooms is excellent, the beds are very comfy. Plenty to keep you busy, go and visit the gorge and the Moore or just to relax. Hopefully we will be able to get back there. The food in the restaurant was excellent and of very high quality.

Brief visit made with family. Excellent warm welcome from the duty manager, Sam. Located in well kept surroundings which are a pleasure to look at. Breakfast choice - more than adequate - ( though possibly could be further improved with some pots of fruity local yoghurt ? - but that's being a bit picky). Cooked breakfast - superb- well presented... More

The house was clean and well presented. Overseen by Sam who greeted us as friends and took a real interest in what we needed. The room looked brand new and the whole house was decorated to our taste. We used it as a stop on the way to the lost gardens of Heligan as we wanted to go to Lydford... More

A short break to get away from it all, this time with our new hound, and it was a joy. The owners and staff are exceptional, the room clean and contemporary and breakfast superb. We were welcomed with our dog and a fuss was made of her during the stay, a home from home for sure. You have access to... More
