Boyton Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #14 of 25 Tavistock B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great accommodation. The two bedrooms and kitchenette make it perfect for families; really comfortable and well-appointed. Peaceful location but still very convenient for Tavistock. The children loved the breakfast.

Very quiet location in the middle of a farm...

We got an attic to our own with comprise the bedroom, a kitchenette & bathroom to our own. In the kitchen there lays before we arrive cheese & ham; honey & jam, etc. as well as fresh loafs of bread + Tea/Coffee, Microwave/Kettle... It is a help yourself service though...

The room is surprisingly quite warm, despite a cool day outside...

This is one of the best B&B we ever stayed at! A well choosen ambient design combined with spacious Rooms and practical Breakfast arrangement. We stayed for 2 Nights but if we had known before we would have booked a night longer to enjoy the calm environment at the edge of dartmoor for longer.

it's such a quiet place. We slept like in heaven. Very nice ambiance. Absolute top privacy because of the architecture of the building (Guests have their own entrance).

the only drawback (not really important): The WiFi Reception is not so good. (it worked with the ipad only in the kitchen). But that's totally normal for a building with this size and thick walls.

We were only looking for a reasonable place to stay during five days of Dartmoor walking with our son (9), and hit the jackpot by finding this unbelievable place. This is not just your ordinary B&B or self-catering. It's a very spacious en-suite room with studio kitchen that offers modern facilities in a historical setting. There is a second bedroom available on request. The place is only let to one guest party at a time, so there are no other guests around. It's amazing how well the owners found the balance between the comforts of modern life and the atmosphere of an old building. The bathroom door alone must have been a major restoration project. Everywhere in the house you can see examples of careful, thoughtful decoration, never out of style. There is also an outside seating area that we did not even use because we were out walking all the time in this perfect weather. The breakfast exceeded everything called "continental" we had so far in variety, quality, and quantity. The owners were extremely friendly, helpful, and really made us feel at home, without ever being intrusive. It was a bit like staying at a friend's house, we never had this at a B&B before.

We've just returned from 2 nights at Boyton Farmhouse, very impressed. Stayed with two small children and there were plenty of toys and books to keep them busy - in such a beautiful location. Perfect for families looking for self catering type accommodation.

This B&B has the wow factor! we stayed with our 2 year old and 6 month old. There were toys and books to keep them entertained and animals to see. The hosts had even left children yogurts on top of amazing breakfast spread. It was great to have the studio kitchen. The room was large, well thought out, clean and welcoming. We were extremely impressed and would have paid a lot more!! If you are looking for a peaceful location with excellent hosts and 5 star accommodation book this one.

We stayed here after a raucous day at a one year olds birthday party! Wow! What a wonderful retreat it was too!

We stayed on the top floor which has a huge bedroom, large bathroom and a kitchen area.

The decor was lovely and in keeping with the location. The view from the windows are of beautiful, undulating countryside, and it was so peaceful. The owners are lovely and you can tell there is a lot of care taken to look after their property and offer the best for their guests.

The finishing touches are what makes this place so special and unique...everywhere you look, there is charm and the breakfast provided was plentiful, fresh and yummy. The freshly baked bread was perfect and there was everything there you could ever wish for and more!

We haven't stopped talking about Boyton Farmhouse since and hope to go back again soon. We have told our friends who are thinking about going for a nice break!

Excellent value for money too...I almost felt I hadn't paid enough it was so amazing!
