A warm and welcoming B & B with friendly, accommodating, pleasant owners. With good road access, although it is advised to slow on approach as it is situated on a hill, there is ample parking in a secure and secluded location. A lovely, comfortable bedroom, (fell asleep instantly), with marvellous panoramic views of the countryside. Nice cooked breakfast with home... More

We really enjoyed staying at Kay & John's very homely B&B which we used as a base for visits to Dartmoor and further afield (eg Eden Project is less than an hour's drive away). Very good to hear how Kay & John are doing (more than!) their bit for the environment (particularly liked the sausage and bacon from home-reared pigs).... More

An overnight stay could not have been better, very friendly hosts. Nothing too much trouble. Beautiful house with a great view. Well behaved dogs are very welcome, and you also get a nice greeting from Buster the Jack Russell.

A sturdy Edwardian house with magnificent views to Dartmoor over Okehampton. Hosts Kay and John are charming and helpful. Breakfasts were substantial, offering a fair choice. Bedroom was comfy, the shower with power. Good wi-fil available.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Upcott House is an Eco Friendly B&B. Set in 4.5 acres of Devon countryside in the Okement Valley overlooking Dartmoor, the location is peaceful but only a 10 minute walk from town. The house is an elegant Edwardian property - big but not a hotel - very much a family home. We welcome guests who have children and dogs. Buster our Jack Russell particularly enjoys the company. We endeavor to set a Green example to our guests in the interests of lowering our carbon footprint and offer a 10% discount to those who travel to us by sustainable means i.e. on foot, bicycle or electric car. We have two electric cars ourselves and for a small fee would be happy to pick you up from the airport or Exeter - there being no proper connection between Exeter and Okehampton after about 6.00 p.m. on the bus and no train connection at all. 90% of our goods and services are provided locally thus reducing the use of fossil fuel transport. We have a 10kw solar PV array in our paddock, rainwater harvesting, recycling, our own boreholes and practice energy conservation. Your breakfast will be served downstairs or in your room. It is freshly cooked and has either home grown, home reared or local produce i.e. our own eggs and bacon, home made preserves or honey from George and Margaret Tomkin from Vivian's Honey in Hatherleigh. Vegetarian and special diets can be easily catered for with advance notice please. There is plenty of off street parking, safe storage for bikes and an electric car charging station for your use. The grounds contain many species of bird life and the garden is a quiet and safe haven for children and adults alike. Make a visit to see the piggies while you are with us. They are Tamworth crossed with Sandy Blacks and very comical. Coming soon will be some goats in the paddock. Imported for their ability to eat our brambles and for their milk because we really like goats cheese. ... more   less
