My partner and I stayed at this B&B for a weekend trip (2 nights) in February and had a most enjoyable stay. Both Hugh and Lisa were extremely welcoming, making us feel very comfortable throughout our stay. The room we stayed in was spacious and came with its own bathroom; only being there for two days, however, meant that we did not spend much time at the cottage. The breakfast was fantastic (both of us being vegetarian) and was one of the biggest factors in our decision to stay here; I find that a large, tasty vegetarian breakfast can often be had to find, most places deciding that you must either eat meat or stick to fruit (not that I have anything against a fruit based breakfast!).

The location is fantastic, set right in the heart of Dartmoor, although as mentioned previously, you need to drive to the nearest pub/restaurant. Hugh and Lisa were extremely good guides, lending us maps of various sizes and recommending nearby walks and restaurants, both of which are extremely useful when you find yourself in unfamiliar territory. We would happily recommend this B&B to others, and may find ourselves returning there sometime in the near future.

As for Dartmoor itself, we were extremely lucky with the weather. Having woken to a thick cloud of fog, we decided to drive to the other side of the National Park where we were greeted with a clear blue sky. The Tors are amazing, as are the ponies, whilst there are plenty of gentle walks near and around the Tors with spectacular views across the Park. Highly recommend a visit if you have never found yourself in this part of the world.

We had a fantastic time with Hugh and Lisa. From first contact to final goodbyes (we're sure we'll be back) they were welcoming and helpful. Our accommodation was clean and cosy, and perfect for a week dodging Dartmoor's rain (lots of interesting books to read when rained-in). The views from the barn conversion were great and the location was perfect for central Dartmoor. We enjoyed several bike rides and there's enjoyable walking right outside your door. This is another gem – lovely Devon accommodation that feels like the middle of nowhere yet is easy to get to from the M5 and A38. We'd definitely come back for another stay when we're in the area. Thank you again for your welcome H & L.

Every so often you might be lucky enough to find a hotel or bed and breakfast which is not just technically excellent but which also demonstrates the love which the owners have put into creating it - this is one such establishment!
We were greeted by cups of tea in the swinging garden seat, spent the night in very comfortable beds and feasted on sumptuous breakfasts. Note this is a vegetarian B&B so if you need sausage or bacon you should go elsewhere - that does mean you will miss the best granola I have ever tasted.......there are also wonderful marinated apricots - while the cooked part of the breakfast allows you to pick your own selection of items - the usual eggs, beans, mushrooms etc plus fried the more exotic fried tempeh if you are feeling adventurous. And then there is the home made jam and toast to finish. Mega yum! Hosts were super and I can not recommend highly enough.

Had the most delightful stay at Easdon Cottage. Our room was exceptionally clean and welcoming and Hugh and Liza made us feel very much at home. There were lots of thoughtful extras in our room and the 6' bed was extremely warm and comfy. Even though the house was centrally heated there were extra blankets and also an electric fire in our room. We spent our evenings in the sitting room by a roaring log fire, which brought back lovely nostalgic memories of a more sedate bygone age. Things got even better when breakfast was served. There was a wonderful choice of starters including home made granola.. The breakfast menu is a true delight for Vegans as they are so well provided for. The cooked breakfasts were cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Our stay went all too quickly and we can't wait to return. Many thanks Hugh and Liza. We will be back.

We had a lovely relaxing stay in this beautiful B&B. A gorgeous old cottage with an impressive history, in a very quiet spot. Lovely walk up onto the hills from the cottage. Lovely friendly hosts, fantastic vegetarian food (we had dinner one night as well as breakfast), very comfy, large room and a cosy lounge. Hope to go back one day!
