A short notice trip to Cornwall found me looking for a B and B on route. Due to leaving Essex at 5:30 in the evening we were planning to stop over around exeter, having looked at all the normal over priced motor way type 'hotels' along the M5 and a30 around Exteter on the internet I found Woodleigh Coach House....

Whenever I travel from Birmingham to Devon or Cornwall, this is where I stop for a break rather than one of those bland, overpriced motorway service stations The cafe serves good food and is reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and helpful. It's only when I get to the Woodleigh Coach House that I feel my holiday has started.

We were travelling, as a family, to visit my mum's roots (she's from Devon) and used Woodleigh Coach House to do a lot of local exploration including Dartmoor, Barnstaple and down to Tintagel. The inn was great! Well maintained, had everything we could have wanted in our rooms, plenty of parking, and a delicious breakfast available downstairs. Oh, and there... More

Great central location near attractions such as castle drogo, with a cafe which serves breakfast till 5pm. Spacious rooms with all the facilities you require. The bed was particularly comfortable as we had a great night sleep. Michelle was very helpful and knowledgeable about local activities and eateries. Bathroom could do with some moderation as is works off a pump... More

We were there through Christmas, and every detail was perfect. Michelle, the proprietress, is a gem, and she made us feel so welcome. The rooms are lovely; so well appointed with kettle and tea and coffee and sweets. The rain on the skylight was so soothing; it was quite difficult to get out of bed. But when I did--! The... More

Stayed in the 'honeymoon' suite for four nights. Beautiful. Lovely four poster bed, windows on three sides and wonderful views. Plenty of space and an absolute pleasure to wake up every morning.
