“A superior Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed May 25, 2008

After a day of walking on Dartmoor , we were delighted to stay at Tim's delightful B and B. The house is decorated extremely tastefully and the fittings from bed linen, furnishings to china and table settings were all strikingly elegant. Our bedroom was very comfortable with views over the fine garden. The bath was large and ideal to soak tired limbs after our walk, but the cradle shower may not suit everybody. Tim served an excellent breakfast with a wide choice of items and beauifully presented.The local pub only 50 yards away is also welcoming and serves excellent evening meals. Castle Drogo is a mile up the road. Tim was a charming host ,helping with our bags and offering a hot drink on our arrival . A beautiful base for visiting Dartmoor or Exeter.

Our recent stay at Parford Well was one of the very best B&B experiences we've had in 30 years of traveling. The host makes all the difference in the world and Tim Daniel (former hotelier in S. Kensington in London) brings years of experience to treating people right. The setting for the property is lovely--quiet, decorated with an eye to both understated style and creature comfort--and nicely situated as a base to use in Devon. Dartmoor, Dartmouth, Exeter are all easy day trips from Parford Well. The beds are comfortable, linens freshly pressed, furnishings new, and bathrooms are up to date. We wish that there had been a stall shower option, but that was our only disappointment. Breakfasts are cooked to order by Tim himself with enough variety in the menu to keep things interesting and guests feeling like they matter. We compare this experience to one that followed in Cornwall in a much splashier setting where people were churned through the dining room like cattle. Tim genuinely cares abut people and takes enough time to get to know just enough about you to know how to please you. A prince of a guy and a lovely, lovely find.

Parford Well and its proprietor Tim were nothing short of delightful. The Inn is set in a tiny crossroads town called Sandy Park, which is a lovely two mile walk from the town of Chagford. The grounds and gardens are enclosed by a stone wall and impeccably kept, as are the private and public interior areas. It is a tranquil and peaceful place to be. Tim has an ecclectic collection of art that is interesting and pleasing to explore. The living room is a comfortable space to retire to in the evenings. The bedrooms are neat and tidy with comfortable beds and the bathrooms provide all the necessities. Note for shower lovers - the bathrooms are equipped with bathtubs and hand spray nozzles, but no shower curtain or door to permit a stand up shower. We managed just fine taking a 'sitting shower." All is spotlessly clean with hair dryers, shampoo and complimentary bottled drinking water provided in the rooms. Each bedroom has a pleasant view of the private yard and gardens. Tim's breakfast offerings are generous and well-prepared including eggs, meats, fruit, vegetables and several grain options. Delicious food is served in the evening a couple doors away at the Sandy Park Inn's "dear pub" as Tim described it. He was right - the pub is tiny and genuine. I definitely hope to return to Parford Well!
