Our second visit to this well presented B&B. A warm welcome awaited us from Gill who provided a very welcome cup of tea after a long journey. A full English breakfast is the perfect start to the day. Our room was cosy with a very comfortable bed. Will definitely be back.

Had a very peasant stay at this lovely place. I booked the Front Room, a very nice clean room, and a nice bathroom to go with it. Breakfast was excellent. Should definitely visit this place once again in the near future, thank you Gill and Dave, the owners of this beautifiul place.

Great B&B a few miles outside Tavistock. Comfortable room, easy parking and marvellous breakfast of mostly homemade or local produce while looking over the local countryside. Very helpful and accommodating hosts. Made a perfect base for us while visiting Dartmoor and nearby NT locations.

Thank you for having us to stay in your lovely conservatory room. We loved the view over the countryside and breakfast was delicious. We were attending a wedding in the area and you were both very helpful, going out of your way to ensure that our trip was hassle free - thank you both very much.
