Fantastic stay in the chapel annex. Sally was very welcoming and helpful. We really liked the space in the accommodation, with private access, large bathroom with under floor heating, two sofas, dining area, fridge and microwave and crockery etc in units. There is a very well stocked book shelf with lots of reading material on the local area, including maps... More

We stayed at the Beeches as the Oratory next door was full. Lovely little house with everything provided. There were only two of us but it would be perfect for a larger group or a family. It is only a few minutes walk to town or onto the Moor.

We first visited the Oratory a couple of years ago and we just keep coming back. This time we have booked The Beeches for bank today weekend. The Beeches is next door to The Oratory, so Sally is available if you need anything, which you won't! We asked Sally to put in a breakfast box, no body wants to go... More

A great location in Princetown perfect for accessing Dartmoor for walking and other outdoor activities. Good for families with travel cot and high chair included. Kitchen is well equipped. WiFi is good, useful as mobile signal in Dartmoor is poor. Very friendly and helpful owners who run the b&b next door.

We were a family of four adults and two teenagers sharing the accommodation at The Beeches Self-catering cottage. The cottage was extremely well-equipped and most comfortable. We had requested a 'breakfast basket'. Sally provided us with a delectable selection of breakfast goodies which far exceed our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend The Beeches to anyone.

We had the pleasure of staying in the self catering cottage in august 2013. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. It had all mod cons, dishwasher, tumble dryer, washing machine, wifi, 2 bathrooms. Really excellent and comfortable.

I have been to the Oratory Bed and Breakfast a number of times and I tend to stay in the Chapel, It has self catering facilities, which make it an excellent choice for families who want to come and go as they please.

We loved staying in the chapel annex. Sally was really friendly and welcoming. The bathroom was amazing, the brekkie provided was fantastic value for money and the room was more than we had expected from the pictures - with a couple of stairs leading to the 'bedroom' area, meaning a separate area to eat breakfast and chill out.. Thoroughly recommend... More

Fantastic stay at the Oratory, a real hidden gem. We have just spent 2 nights in the annex and were very pleasantly suprised by the quality of the accommodation.

“Chose the Chapel if you are a family and want the extra space. The Oratory is accessed by steep stairs (approx 20) and this may make it less suitable for individuals with mobility issues. However, speak to Sally and the team, as they may be able to assist”
