Suzanne and Steve run a lovely guesthouse in a relaxed part of Devon. They are very welcoming, the room was really comfortable and the guesthouse has a nice feel to it. Tinhay is a small village, just a qtr of a mile down from larger Lifton, where there are some good places to eat and drink. There's a beautiful meadow... More

A very friendly and comfortable B&B with lovely rooms although no views, sadly. Handy to Launceston or Okehampton and an easy drive to Tavistock or Dartmoor area. Good sized rooms with normal creature comforts. Suzanne's husband cooks a very enjoyable breakfast. Summary : Onsite parking, ensuite bathrooms, comfortable beds, lovely host Suzanne.

Tinhay Mill is and excellent B&B. All rooms are spotless. Breakfast is superb. There are no evening meals but nearly next door is The Fox and Grapes which serves very good food in a very friendly atmosphere. The problems in this area are internet and phone reception.

Dear Moonraker Thank you for reviewing us and I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay at Tinhay Mill. Phone signals in Devon are hit and miss unfortunately, however we do have a Voda Phone mast transmitting from our building so at least we are able to provide one service. We also have excellent Wi-Fi in all rooms and areas which most... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights and wished it were for longer. Suzanne welcomed us on arrival and made us feel right at home. The mill is an interesting building, with walls nearly three feet thick. Our room was downstairs and spacious. Stephen, Suzanne's husband, is a Cordon Bleu trained chef and his breakfasts are fabulous, made with... More

We needed a bed and breakfast near to Tavistock to meet up with family and also break up our trip home from Cornwall. We received a very warm welcome and the accommodation was perfect. The room and bathroom were clean and decorated to a high standard. It is in a very quiet location. There was an excellent choice for breakfast... More

Booked Tinhay Mill on the way back from the eden project. Area and guesthouse are lovely as are the couple who own it. Room was nice and big as was the bathroom. Tinhay isn't the liveliest place ever so you'll need to drive into the capital a few miles down the road. My only criticism of my stay, and it's... More

Stayed overnight at Tinhay Mill on the 13th of April. The room really did feel home from home. Lots of space, fabulous quirky details. The bed was amazing, comfiest we've ever slept in, also very quiet, no traffic noise. Spotlessly clean, and very friendly, welcoming hosts. After a great nights sleep, breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious, just the right... More

Arrived at " Tinhay Mill " after a long day traveling and an evening working in Launceston. Arrived during a rain shower and was greeted by a very friendly hostess. As soon as she opened the door the warmth and smell of a real fire was apparent and I soon forgot the weather. After a quick chat about food, breakfast... More
