Stayed at the Old Coffee House in Ashburton from March 29-April 2 2016. Fantastic location within Ashburton and clean as a whistle. We stayed on the top floor in the room with two twin beds. Beds were comfortable. Car part is about a 2 minute walk away and only about 3 pounds per night. Located right at the entrance to...

Being a solo traveller, you do tend to find that single rooms are often a converted box room, not so in this case. The room was spacious, light and comfortable. Being right in town, all the towns amenities were in a comfortable, flat, walking distance, so another plus point there. Breakfast was good. I recommend The Old Coffee House to...

I come and stay here once a month and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The owners - Julia & Clive - are just a delight and the breakfast (especially the bacon) is second to none. The village of Ashburton is right on the edge of Dartmoor so it's a 5 min drive (or 20 min cycle uphill) and you're...

My sincere apologies to the owners for taking to long to review this place! The stay was very pleasant, room spotless, owners very nice, breakfast lovely, great location and it was excellent value for money. Couldn't recommend this enough. This will be the first place we look at when we are back down in the area.

We had the good fortune to stay with Julia and Clive on June 6th and 7th 2014. The 4 of us really enjoyed being guests in this quirky, wonderful old building in the heart of Ashburton and next to one of Englands most beautiful churches. The rooms were spacious and more than adequate, and excellent value, the breakfast first class,...

I stayed at this lovely old property overnight as a friend was having a party at the other end of town. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, the rooms are really spacious and airy and the breakfast in the morning really hits the spot. The most important thing though are the hosts who are a lovely welcoming couple. I would not hesitate...

I recently stayed at The Old Coffee House while attending a week long course at the Ashburton Cookery School. The school had recommended a few locations and the first one I tried was full, however, they then put me in touch with Julia and Clive at The Old Coffee House, and I couldn't have been happier with the result. The...
