“Best B&B in Town”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

I've been there with my family early this Month (September), I've been recommended this place by a friend of mine.

Wonderful location in Moretonhampstead, a lovely old fashioned village just outside Dartmoor National Park. Beautiful surroundings. The building is very old (listed I think) but works has been carried on and it is very comfortable! Lovely staff-owners, we spent half an hour chatting after breakfast and they suggested me the best route to visit Dartmoor.

Exceptional value for money, huge rooms very clean with huge bathrooms. I will be back.

We stayed at The Old Post House for one night as we were attending a wedding nearby.
Steve and Zoe were really helpful and so friendly before we even got there (we were arriving with only an hour to spare to get changed etc before going to the venue) and let us have our room a few hours early as it was available.
The room was spotless - one of the cleanest rooms i've ever stayed in, and whilst the bathroom was small it was perfectly formed and did the job just fine. Bed was very comfy and everything neat and tidy with everything we needed in the room and very value good value for money.

We didn't need to ask for a parking permit as we found a nearby street to park in which was free, but had we needed one it was available.

Breakfast was spot on and they weren't too strict on times to get down and were very accommodating if you wanted something other than the 'full English'.

We would definately recommend The Old Post House and definately stay again.

Very acccomodating hosts in Steve and Zoe. Lovely clean and spacious room with en suite and tv/video. The House itself is very large but like a lot of properties in the village it doesn't show this from the road. Breakfast was lovely with cereals, full english and toast. We would certainly visit again The village is very self contained with three pubs, a hotel,cafes and an excellent butcher. Although we have visited South Devon before, we have never visited this village. However we would certainly do so again as it's a good base for the area.

The Old Post House is a charming little guesthouse near the centre of Moretonhampstead, where I stayed with a group of friends in May 2006. The reasonably priced B&B, which is as its name suggests, has its own comprehensive website which can be found with a quick web search. Steve & Zoe are very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The rooms are individually furnished and offer all the expected facilities. The en-suite in our room was about due for a make-over but this did not detract from our enjoyment of the visit. Fruit and cereal are available in the morning and the cooked breakfast was excellent. Both hosts were more than happy to offer good advice on places to visit and things to do locally. There is a large, shared guest lounge on the ground floor, which is perfect for planning the next day's activities.

Car parking is either on the street outside or in the pay and display car park (only £1.50 for a day!), although Steve & Zoe have a couple of spare permits for the car park that they can lend out. The central location is great for eating out in the evening with 3 pubs and a hotel restaurant with a couple of minutes walk. All in all we enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others or return ourselves.
