It was lovely and peaceful and very relaxed.Lovely views of the sheep in the surrounding fields. Bev and Neil made us feel very welcomed,and they were very helpful.There was nothing we didn't like. There was plenty to do and see in the surrounding area.We will certainly be back.

RELAX........ The Guest House is a joy. Bev & Neil are perfect hosts. The evening meals are delicious as are the breakfasts. Relax after dinner in the huge & welcoming lounge with a glass of your favourite tipple. What is not to enjoy!!

We are not seasoned B&B users and are always a bit apprehensive about staying in people's houses! However, no fear regarding Sampson Barton. Fabulously cosy and traditional, Neil welcomed us upon our arrival and invited us into the wonderful residents' lounge. An inferno of a log burner instantly warmed us up, and we were left to chat with two new...

We were looking for somewhere that offered dinner, as well as b&b, and Sampson Barton certainly met all our wishes. Quiet location, beautiful garden, and fantastic accommodation overall. Our room was very comfortable and very clean. The guest lounge, with wood burner, is beautiful - look at the photos on the website. We particularly liked the honesty bar where you...

Neil and Bev were great hosts. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was superb We would definitely stay at this B&B again. The views from our window were of the sheep grazing in the field and we were welcomed by chickens, a duck and not forgetting Fred the dog. A great rural location

Four Aussies on holidays visited one of the most charming B&B s in Devon And possibly all of England. Our Neil and Bev could not be more welcoming. We had a fantastic restful enjoyable experience including the one of the best meals we've had so far. Do yourself a favour and go visit.

We only stayed for one night as a stop off but we wish we stayed longer. Bev and Neil are very welcoming and accommodating, our room was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious! I'd recommend anyone to stay here and will certainly be looking at doing so again myself.

Once again Bev and Neil succeed in making our stay feel like friends on a return visit. This special couple have a gift for making you welcome and ensuring your stay with them is the best it can be.

Everything was just perfect from the time we opened the gate and drove in. We were greeted by Neil, who was mowing the grass, and he carried our bags in and ushered us into the large welcoming guests lounge and offered us a very welcome pot of tea. We were then shown to our room which was extremely clean and...
