Breakfast was delicious and when we asked for baked beans, Kate and Nathan graciously provided a generous portion. There are a few small niggles that have meant a 4 rather than 5...

Gages Mill was a perfect location for a family of 11 for two nights of our holiday. Nathan and Kate were perfect hosts. When our son-in-law stayed to work, Kate provided him with tea and biscuits. Breakfast was excellent. The sitting room downstairs for visitors was well-used. Our rooms were very presentable, clean and fresh, with delicious biscuits on the...

Gages Mill manages to mix excellent facilities and warm friendly service in a very convenient location. Nathan and Kate are a lovely welcoming couple who manage very well to combine a family house and hotel on the edge of Dartmore.

I had a perfect stay at the Gages Mill in October. I was attending a conference down the road and choose the Gages Mill after reading its customer reviews. First impressions of the Mill were remarkable! It was signposted therefore easy to find. A picturesque, quaint B&B situated in the lush rural countryside. Greeted by Kate (very charming) who provided...
