We stayed here for a couple of nights in December.... the room was brilliant. It was clean, warm and welcoming. The place is magical and the food is just as wonderful! Thank you so much for a lovely stay, we'll be back! x

This was our second stay at The Travellers Rest and we will be returning again. Sue and Derek are the perfect hosts and we guarantee that you will not find a better breakfast anywhere. The Travellers Rest is nestled in the heart of the North Devon countryside. The property has retained most of its original features and the views from...

What an incredibly unusual place. An old church conversion is nothing new but the gothic features in this one are still in place and it has been lovingly and meticulously converted into a warm, homely guest house. The owners, Sue and Brian Pope are painstaking in their attention to detail. They probably offer the best breakfast in the whole of...

Travelers rest old church is tucked away in the Devonshire countryside.....a hidden gem! We spent two nights in the West Suite to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room is amazing and very quirky. Loved the decor, atmosphere, facilities, oh and the complimentary sherry (yum!). However note that there is a bath with shower attachment in this room, rather than a...

Lovely rural location with rolling devon hills around, quick car ride down the local country lane and your into Barnstaple, with some lovely beaches and towns nearby. The location itself makes it such a relaxing place away from the rush of normal life. The B&B is excellent, and travelling with a young family you can go for the west suite...

The location was perfect for our ancestral trail centred on South Molton & the stunning coastal scenery and walks were an easy drive. Breakfast at the enormous long wooden table was superb, freshly cooked using locally sourced food. You could choose the enormous full English or yoghourt and fresh fruit, depending on the mood of the day. There are excellent...

This is the place to get away from it all and enjoy a fantastic location. It offers a perfect place to rest and forget about work. The breakfasts are out of this world, beats any hotel that I have stayed at and that includes those globally. Mein Hosts are perfect, couldnt ask for a better couple. Always making you feel...

My partner and I celebrated our civil partnership at The Travellers Rest Old Church and couldn't have asked for anything better. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. Our hosts Derek and Sue were brilliant in creating an informal, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The main church room was decorated beautifully for...

The Travellers Rest Old Church can only be described as the most wonderfully unique place to stay in North Devon. It sits in a marvellous country location but is still close to all the attractions that North Devon has to offer. The food and the hospitality is second to none and I can not recommend it highly enough. D Savage...
