“Another great stay”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

After our great time in April it was wonderful to return to Greenbanks and receive more of the same: warmth, humor and happiness. Also our bed felt even more comfortable.

We paused in reviewing because we are genuinely worried that many others will discover this, Chagfords (& North Dartmoors) best accommodation, and therefore they will never have availability again :-) Please don't stay here unless your a good person.

My husband and I had a great stay at the Greenbank. The bed and breakfast is in a large country house with flower and vegetable gardens, and cool animals --guinea fowl, chickens and friendly pets (grey parrot and two dogs-whippets). The location is great. The house sits on a hill with great views of Dartmoor National Park. It is a ten minute walk into the town of Chagford which has a diary, butcher, bakery, several tea houses, pubs, and some cute stores with nice stationary, housewares, and outdoor clothes. Plus, there are a couple of public paths right near the house that lead to great hikes.
Our room was very large and had its own entrance. We loved the shower with rain head fixture and the large bath tub. The house had lots of special touches like an antique rocking horse, beautiful gardens and a swing on the back porch. Overall: tasty breakfasts,relaxing, comfortable and quiet!

It is with some reluctance that we write about Greenbank B + B in Chagford, as having discovered this jewel of a place, we are loathe to share it with all and sundry, in case it is fully booked when we decide to run away, yet again, to our perfect sanctuary. Having stayed here five times now in the last year, we can honestly say, hand on heart.. this is the most welcoming, comfortable and friendliest of all the places we have ever stayed. Fru, Peter, family and wonderful menagerie have become the reason to return to Greenbank rather than just a place to lay one's head. Though the pillows are extremely comfy!

Room Tip: The Beijing room is our favourite with a fantastic en suite power shower room!

We had a fantastic stay at Greenbank.
We couldn't have been made more welcome, both by the owners and their pets; we were also invited to meet the ten adorable puppies, who are looking for homes!
The room was spotless and a good size, with a very comfortable bed. We were able to look out the window an watch the chickens and other birds running around in the garden.
Breakfast was very nice and we were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble.
Overall a very enjoyable stay, we would definitely stay here again.

What a gem of a place to stay! We were made to feel really welcome there by our hosts and their pets, and the location is just spot on for a peaceful weekend away. Loved the beautiful old, cozy house, with it's amazing array of books and antiques. Room was lovely and clean, with a comfy bed, and dressers decorated with little vases of freshly cut garden flowers. The shower was newly fitted and fantastically powerful (great for after a good days walking on the moors!)..and breakfast was spot on! Can definitely recommend the fruit and yogurt!

What a joy and delight to have stayed at Greenbanks we miss it already. You feel like a member of the family as you join the flow of friends family and pets that appear in the kitchen. It's no surprise it's so popular as the host are a joy to be with and make you feel very welcome.
We had the annexe room which was gorgeous, with the best shower in the world as well as a super comfy bed. Despite the flow of people we had plenty of privacy and came and went as we pleased. Make time for the yummy breakfast and feel free to ask about the area there are plenty of maps and books available.
We will be returning as often as we can!

I couldn't rate this place more highly. Everything about Greenbanks makes for an exceptional stay. Our hosts were wonderful and kind, going out of their way to make us feel more than home from home. The food was excellent, and generous. Their conversation and bonhomie really added something to our holiday. We cannot wait to go back to our new friends in the Southwest!!

Room Tip: Ask for the annexe, with amazing shower room
