The most beautiful location we have stayed at in years. The accommodation was immaculately clean. Very comfortable bed. We had a great nights sleep. The breakfast was second to none. The Tamar river is just a small walk down through the beautiful woodland path. I highly recommend this incredibly stunning place 10/10
We stayed at Rumleigh for a few days and enjoyed our time. The owner, Keith, was welcoming and helped us answer any questions we had about the local area. They also have a dog, Betty, who was a pure delight!
Freshly cooked breakfast was provides every morning. Sausages, bacon, eggs (however you want them), mushrooms and tomatoes. They also had the option of toast, cereal, yoghurts etc. A VERY good breakfast.
We wandered over the land behind the farm. There are some stunning views from up high, a river, pond, chickens etc. Definitely recommend a wander.
There is a barn which apparently hosts weddings, parties, events etc, which has a bar. Guests are welcomed to enjoy the bar in the barn which Keith ran, and nothing was too much trouble for him.
Rooms were comfortable. The Blue and Green bedrooms both have ensuite shower and toilet.
The communal lounge was nice to have access to, rather than being cooped up in the rooms. It almost felt like our own little cottage on the nights that no one else was staying in the B&B. The only criticism I would have is that it doesnt quite have a clear identity. Sometimes it felt like a B&B, but it also had self-catering aspects whilst almost feeling like you are living in someone else's house. Apparently it used to be self-catering so it may still have some of those aspects that give off the 'confused' feel.
A note to those less local; you definitely need a car and be prepared to drive most places. We were fully expecting this and factored this into our plans, but don't expect many places to be walking distance. Apparently some taxi companies will collect/drop at Rumleigh (ask Keith), but we didn't use these so cannot comment.
Overall, I would recommend this to others. A lovely stay! :)
We stayed here for 3 nights and were not disappointed we had a brilliant time and plan to hopefully return. The farm is situated near to the banks of the River Tamar and has access onto the river. The surrounding area is very pretty and lots to see and do. On arrival we were greeted by Keith and Annie the owners, and shown to our room .. the Green room. The room was lovely with a comfy bed and ensuite shower room. We had access to a communal lounge downstairs which was very cosy and had numerous dvds you could watch and books to read. We took our canoe and Keith was brillant telling us the tide times and we managed to take the canoe out on the river one evening which was good fun. Breakfast each day was fantastic and Keith cooked a wonderful breakfast each morning. There was also a choice of cereals, yoghurts, toast, tea, coffee and juice along side the full english - it really was very good. There are lots of places to eat in the area and Annie was great at pointing you in the right direction for a good meal. There is an Asian takeaway van that parks up on the layby near by which is a must ... it was so so good and so reasonable. The farm hosts live music now and again and also has a bar which is great. We hope to return soon.
This is a lovely place to stay in South Devon - almost right on the banks of the Tamar River. Clean, comfortable rooms are complemented by a truly amazing breakfast.
Keith and Annie are great hosts and have good suggestions as to things to do, places to see and best routes to take in the area.
Extremely friendly service. Clean, modern rooms with great breakfast.
Also great venue for gigs if you would like to host your own or attend a pre-arranged one.
Keith and Annie the owners of Rumleigh went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a good one. Needless to say, it was.
Just returned from a weekend trip to Devon for a friends wedding. We were luck enough to have got a room in Rumleigh Farm BB!
From start to finish Annie and Keith were exceptional hosts and went above and beyond the requirements for any B&B owner!
The place is idillic picture postcard England, the peace quiet and tranquillity out there is just amazing!
Between all our friends we had booked the entire place out and so were able to view all the rooms. All were furnished to a high standard and overall the place was clean and very cosy!
The Dragonfly self contained unit is amazing and well worth the money!
The breakfasts Keith and Annie cooked were out of this world and you could not want for anymore!
Additional to the rooms they have a cosy converted barn that is able to accommodate any function and has an lovely real wood burner and a small bar with a stage and lights etc
You do need a car to get around this part of the world, however Annie and Keith are on hand to support with local taxi, train and Pub information.
If you are ever in this part of the world I could not recommend Rumleigh high enough - If my husband and I were ever visiting Devon again this would be the place we would stay!
If you want a friendly value for money escape THIS is the place to book!
Super nice place to stay and chill out for a few days. We camped in the field and soaked up awesome countryside and gardens area. Postcard England all around! Really nice breakfast as well. No showers for campers though.
