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. We had a very warm welcome from Sally, she could not be more helpful and was full of advise and nothing was too much trouble. We were made to feel very...

My husband and I live only an hour away but were looking for somewhere to just escape for a couple of nights. I found The Oratory via Trip Advisor and as it had several good ratings, booked us in for a two-night getaway. It was a great central location to go wandering on Dartmoor and from the pics online, it...

I stayed at the Oratory for 10 days in the chapel annex ,whilst working at Dartmoor prison. It was fantastic ,just to come back to the room and just chill after a stressful day. The room was a large split-level room with a bathroom to die for. I stayed in Feb and March and to have a heated floor in...

We found the oratory on line as a dog friendly b & b, but were very pleasantly surprised at the overall package. Sally and Mike left us a lovely box of mince pies as a welcome present, giving us a hint of how lovely our stay would be. Lovely large spotless bathroom and well equipped split level accommodation, a superb...

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Chappel Annex at The Oratory for a couple of nights as we were attending a wedding in Dartmoor. It was just a five minute drive from The Two Bridges Hotel where the reception was held and my first visit to Princetown. We walked down to The Prince of Wales pub on our first...

We have just stayed at the Oratory B&B in the Chapel Annex, which I can highly recommend. It's a large yet cosy room with a nice hallway and separate entrance from the main house so you can come and go as you please. The bathroom was a real treat, with a lovely roll top bath, separate large shower and heated...

I stayed at the Oratory, in the Chapel Annex after coming home from a 7 month tour of duty, and was totally taken back, by the level of service I received from this well run B & B set in the small village of Princetown. The breakfast was outstanding and the selection was second to none and if there was...

We spent a couple of nights in Pricetown - one couple and two singles, and shared this excellent self-catering accomodation. The house is young, modern, clean, and inviting. We felt at home immediately. At night, we walked the moor or swanned about Princetown to mix with the locals - or we just relaxed in the sitting-room. This is the perfect...

We stayed at The Oratory, Chapel Annex for two nights as my friends were getting married at the Two Bridges. The Chapel Annex was so roomy and cosy at the same time. Sally offered a warm welcome and provided a superb spread in our fridge for breakfast. The posh bath and shower and heated floor was not all expected and...

“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”
