Have stayed here before with the previous owners, Steve and Angela have enhanced the bed and breakfast experience by providing a lovely lounge for their guests, will definitely be back... More

Stayed here over night while up for a family christening. Apart from being in a delightful location on the edge of Dartmoor the overwhelming impression you are left with is somewhere so relaxing, immaculately clean and tidy with bedrooms which are decorated and appointed to a very high standard.

Thank you Guy B for your review. It was a pleasure to host your group when staying with us for the christening. We're always happy to record programmes for people to watch later as long as it doesn't disturb our other guests, and as your group rented the whole house it was no problem! It's a shame you didn't like... More

Such a great place to stay. Welcomed with a nice cup of tea and fresh scones. The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean. We were staying in the family room with a separate bathroom - the bathroom was for ourselves, bath robes were provided, so really perfect. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your review. Happy to hear you liked the complimentary cream tea on arrival, and the luxury bathroom with bathrobes that belongs to our king size suite (with extra single bedroom). That room (room 5) is our favourite - probably because of the beautiful chaise longue in the bay window! Best regards, Angela and Steve. More
