Monica and Roy are running a lovely B&B which is not only impeccably clean and conveniently placed next to a pub but also very close to Huntsham Court and therefore makes the perfect place to stay while spending time for a wedding in Devon. They offer a wide choice of freshly made breakfast with homemade jams and clearly take pride...

Just got back from attending a very special wedding. We booked to stay two nights in Staple Cross Cottage B&B and all I can say is the service we received was 5star. Monica & Roy the owners couldn't do enough to make our stay extra special. The room was warm, bright, clean and extremely comfortable. Our breakfasts on both mornings...

I stayed at this lovely B&B for the first time in September. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The owners were extremely helpful with excellent knowledge of the surrounding area. I would definitely return should I be in the area again.

Not easy to find in Devon's narrow lanes but worth the effort. Roy and Monica were gracious hosts ; the amenities were first rate; the breakfasts were enough to keep body going for the day. Comfortable bed -what more could we ask for - well the pub next door (with very quiet customers) has a good range of ales and...

Thank you for writing a review of Staple Cross. We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay here and overcame the initial challenge of the Devon lanes compared to the expanse of Canada! It was lovely to meet you both and we thoroughly enjoyed our discussions over breakfast, putting the world to rights. Thank you, once again.

A beautiful building, and the room was very comfortable with a very nice ensuite- great shower particularly. Every detail was perfect. Delicious and generous breakfast with lovely home made preserves that you can purchase for a very reasonable price (particularly recommend the grapefruit marmalade) and kind, welcoming and helpful hosts who can't do enough for you. Their local knowledge and...

Staple Cross is quite simply idyllic! This is a rural retreat of the highest quality - a home which feels loved and where the hosts, Monica and Roy lovingly extend hospitality welcoming you into their home. We were struck by the beauty of the place, its ambiance, cleanliness and exquisite little touches.

I have been here with my girlfriend and her sister and we really loved our stay. The cottage and the rooms are high standard and lovely, breakfast is generous and delicious. The hosts are extremely kind and welcoming and, furthermore, helped us in all our transfers (otherwise it would have been quite complicated without a car). A place to suggest!

We stayed one night at Staple Cross and wished we'd planned a longer stay. We were made very welcome by Roy and Monica. The double en suite room is lovely and the bed is so comfortable.
