Everything about this B and B is fabulous. We have stayed twice now and both times Jan and Mark have made our trip special. It’s the best B and B we have ever stayed in. The rooms are clean with beautiful quality furnishings and decor. The breakfast has everything and more you could possibly want. Parking is easy just outside the house. Just fab-u-lous. Can’t wait to stay again next year. jan and Steve weeks

We were very fortunate to book the last available room for a one night stay at 58. This B&B is the standard of a small boutique hotel on every level. Jan and Mark were extremely welcoming and we immediately felt relaxed. They recommended local dining experiences which we very much enjoyed. Everything has been thought of to make this a very special stay , with great attention to detail and thoughtfulness put in to every aspect. A delicious breakfast was the end to a stay which felt all too short. We will be back !

with our sincere thanks

Spent 4 nights in number5ifty8ight and highly recommend it.
We were kept abreast of potential parking issue due to roadworks on the day of arrival and received a warm welcome on arrival. The room was superb with everything one could ask for, from the usual tea selection including fruit teas, coffee and drinking chocolate. A biscuit jar of biscuits and fudge appealed to my sweet tooth! It was replenished on a daily basis. We were offered a Prosecco but as we were heading out in our car unfortunately had to decline this. There was however, a decanter of red which washed down the biscuits on our return. The room was extremely large as was the bed. I could hardly find my wife during the night! The large en-suite offered a huge shower with copious hot water. The decor was first rate and couldn’t be faulted. Neither could the cleanliness of the premises. Breakfast was excellent with a large selection even although we were the only guests on our first night. On our second evening we arrived back after dinner to the welcoming aroma of bread being baked which we enjoyed at breakfast in the morning.
All in all, it would be difficult to find fault with the experience and am sure we will return when next we return to Tavistock in the car!

Room tip: Only 4 rooms so book early to avoid disappointment

We had a fantastic 2 night stay at 5ifty 8eight. Everything about the B&B is outstanding. Our room(s) were luxurious and Jan and Mark have done a wonderful job with the design and facilities.
The breakfast choice is excellent, and very generous portions are served (you will want less on your second morning!).
The location is ideal for a stroll in to town and easy access to the moor and local attractions.
