“Magnificant Victorian Farmhouse B and B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

We have just spent our 2nd visit this year at Greatcourt Farm B and B, The experience was a delight from begiinning to end. . Breakfast menu was extremely varied and perfect in every way, served up by Janet who is the perfect cook and hostess. Accomodation at Great Court Farm is brilliant with large bedroom with all facilities and adjoining large bathroom together with a walk in shower for those who prefer showers. The whole experiece felt like home from home, We were able to walk to Totnes and go on a boat trip to Dartmouth for the day and return via Steamtrain back to Paignton and then bus back to Totnes. Unfortnately for us the week at Great Court Farm went far too quickly. Nevermind we shall be back without fail next year!

We have enjoyed our stays with Janet. She is quite attentive to your needs and yet, gives you the space to do your own thing. We also like being able to choose from a simple breakfast or a full cooked breakfast. The rooms are big and you have your own bathrooms. A must with children. One can walk into town from the farm which suits our needs.
We have always enjoyed staying at Great Court Farm

fantastic breakfast, loved the pinapple and bluberries with a slight kick in the juice.
although said en-suite the actual bathroom was on landing outside door, luckerly my parents was
on the same landing but big bathroom. bedroom large and comfortable and well equiped.
accomodation although fantastic there was,nt a lot of privacy could have done with seperate
door for guests as entrance was very open as hosts accomodation was very open,as it was a farmhouse needed to be a little bit seperated from the b&b side of things.to much of an open plan.
host very regimental waiting for us to come back at night which wasn,t late. felt restricted which made us uneasy at all times.its a shame as views were fantastic.

Room Tip: front rooms have good views

Thank you for the review and I am glad you enjoyed the breakfasts and my spacious rooms. Guests do have their own seperate door to the property, with keys to come and go as they like.The website and adverts, plus I explain to everyone before booking that the twin room has an ensuite toilet and basin, and that the Private bath/shower room is seperate.
This is a very large house and definitly not open plan, so to avoid guests looking for me I usually see them to make sure they have everything they need before retiring to their rooms for example fresh or,hot milk for night time drinks, freezer blocks to be put into the freezer and as I provide an exstensive menu for breakfast I take their order. I like to provide a friendly personal service and am so sorry that my good intentions were misunderstood.

Lovely working Victorian Devon farmhouse B&B ! Where to start? On arrival a Victoria Sandwich the WI would kill for - proper tea in a teapot (no teabags, oh no!) and Janet! Well, a thoroughly warm welcome, a very traditional bedroom with tea, coffee and biscuits (big hit with an 11 and 46 year old!). The private bathroom was huge and the power shower was wonderful. Breakfast - you were spoilt for choice and special requests were no problem. Advice on places to go was wonderful and impartial. The farmhouse was spotless and nothing was too much trouble. Janet may have been in the B&B buisness for over 30 years but you felt as if you were staying with a friend. One small point of note is the homemade Granola - it is amazing and highly addictive, you'll be going back for seconds !!! We are hoping to go back next year and think that Great Court Farm (and Janet) are great for anyone who wants to go to a friendly, clean, proper farmhouse holiday in Devon!

We stayed for 3 nights over the Easter break, can't fault a thing. Janet was a wonderful host, her breakfasts are second to none and her advice on places to visit were extremely helpful in making the most of our short stay. Our rooms were spacious and very comfortable, the mother inlaw felt like the queen mum when she was given a three bed room with a view to die for. If your reading this review take my advice book now, you won't regret it.
Thank you Janet for making our stay so very enjoyable.

Absolutely wonderful place to stay. Janet is the perfect hostess: so friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Great Court Farm has the highest standards, in every respect. It is spotlessly clean, the accommodation is first class, with lots of extra touches with the comfort of the guest in mind, the food is of the highest standard. I hope to be able to come back to Totnes. If I do: Great Court Farm is the only place to stay.Thank you Janet for making my stay so good.
