“Lovely setting and great welcome”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Thanks to Gil and Dave for a lovely stay. The setting is picturesque and the room very comfortable. Couldn't fault the breakfast - homemade yoghurt, their own eggs, local bacon, hand churned butter and the chance to eat it out on the patio in the sun!

Appledown House is a small B&B and offers wonderful personal service with Tea and biscuits on arrival and nothing being too much trouble. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and wished we had been able to stay longer. Appledown House is situated a couple of miles from Tavistock with good access routes to the local area. (If you like a sightly challenging walk try Lydford Gorge - takes about 2 hrs - National Trust). Gill delivers a lovely breakfast with homemade products and home laid eggs from the 50 hens that they have. Very enjoyable.

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms, the room with the 'conservatory' offers wonderful views across Dartm...

I found this place when I was on a family trip and had an excellent personal service, good clean rooms, excellent facilities, best breakfast ever.
I have just been on a business trip with A&S Constabulary and remembered why I wanted to go back again!!!
Best thing was the personal service by the owners and the local food.

Room Tip: There is a front room with conservatory, well worth it, amazing views.

My partner and I stayed at Appledown House while in the area for a family wedding. Before the trip I contacted Gil a couple of times to change check in times and to extend the booking and found her to be friendly and flexible with the times. We received a friendly welcome and were shown to a lovely clean room with stunning views and given some recommendations for things to see in the area and places for dinner. We had a great breakfast made up of local products with homemade bread and yogurt to accompany it. The room was great value for money and I would definitely stay again or recommend to a friend.

My partner and I stayed 1 night on the way to Cornwall. We were given a warm, friendly greeting and shown our beautiful room. We were then presented with a lovely tea tray with a cafetierre, pot of tea and some delicious biscuits! The room was spotlessly clean, fresh and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was lovely. We paid a small supplement for a conservatory on the room which was well woth the extra. The view from it was for miles over the moors. Wonderful.. A good nights sleep in a comfy bed. Then a most wonderful breakfast, including home made bread, locally made jam and finest yoghurts. The eggs in our cooked breakfasts were from Marlene,one of the resident chickens and her feathered friends! Great stuff! There is an outdoor swimming pool but not the weather for us to use it. Excellent stay and really hospitable hosts. Would definitely stay again and would strongly recommend to anyone else. Thank you for a great time.

Room Tip: The extra premium for the room with the conservatory is well it.
