This is how it is done! Luxury, elegance, comfort and a feeling of being treated as somebody special. Well done Julia, you have definitely got the knack of making your guests feel at home and your property is outstanding plus the the English breakfast is to die for!

We were recently travelling through Devon and were very pleased to be able to stay here again after a 6 year gap...it is such a relaxed and tranquil place with very comfy beds, lovely breakfasts with homemade jam and bread and yummy bacon!
The owners are very friendly and welcoming with great knowledge and enthusiasm for the local area, which is beautiful....
Stay for a whole weekend if you can.

One issue - for TRIPADVISOR !!! - although I knew what I was looking for, I had to look really hard to find this place on your site as it is now tagged to Talaton, a small village - why on earth is it not down as being in the Exeter region so people looking for a lovely place to stay can find it??

I have stayed at Larkbeare Grange on three occasions whilst on business in the Exeter area. The warm welcome from Julia & Charlie, the beautiful house, the fantastic surroundings and the wonderful personal touches make this a magical place to stop and re-charge. This is my little Oasis in a very busy world.... highly recommend it.

From the moment we arrived at Larkbeare Grange the stress of everyday life slipped away. Charlie & Julia have made a fantastic job of restoring the house paying particular attention to detail. The room we had was very large, even with our 4 year old sleeping on the sofa bed there was ample room for all 3 of us! The beds are extremely comfortable - making it tricky to want to get up in the morning! Charile and Julia are the perfect hosts, from the homemade shortcake and tea on arrival to the loan of a rucksack and maps for our walk nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast is also really good with all local produce used. Larkbeare Grange is a perfect place to getaway and recharge the batteries!

We stayed at this beautiful B&B for 2 nights in March 2010. We were made to feel very welcome and found that our room had been upgraded. In the mornings we had a delicious breakfast in the elegant dining room. They had even thoughtfully provided a printout of the weather for the day. In the lounge there was a folder full of very detailed information about the area The room was spaciou,s well furnished and extremely comfortable.. We had booked a restaurant in Exeter through Toptable only to find the booking had not been possible at the last minute so Julia rang around and found us a table at a delicious local pub, the Railway at Honiton.
We hope it will not be long before we are down in Exeter again and would definitely stay here again.

An excellent example of what a quality B&B should be like.
Caring and welcoming hosts,great accommodation with thoughtful extras and then a delightful and well prepared breakfast.
All this within a tranquil and beautiful location--as close to perfect as possible at a very reasonable price.
Thank you so much Charlie & Julia.
