The Duchy House is a very warm and welcoming B&B. Sal and Al are the owners and they went out of their way to make sure our stay was nothing short of excellent. They have a lot of local knowledge and are very helpful. The accommodation is modern and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was modern and the shower was hot...

Our room was clean and well presented. The room was serviced daily and had a beautiful fresh smell all of the time. The owners are really friendly and helpful. The full English breakfast is supplied using local produce. This is reflected by the taste of the Eggs Sausages and Bacon. There is free WiFi in the rooms.

A lovely place. The owners, Sal and Al are very welcoming and helpful. My room had a great view and very comfortable bed. It also had a newly refurbished ensuite shower/toilet and was very clean and tidy. Their rates are very reasonable. If you are staying in the Dartmoor area, I would certainly recommend Duchy House.

All B&B owners should come and visit Duchy House to see how it should be done. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean (the chrome fittings positively gleaming). The room was comfortable, with TV, wifi and tea/coffee facilities. The shower was of superior quality and very spacious. The breakfast, cooked to order, was excellent. The hosts were extremely friendly and...
