Nothing, nothing had changed, so Thank you Dominic and Staff. We were once again treated to what has got to be Devon's best kept secret escape. First class accommodation, excellent breakfast and...

Beautifully furnished. Wonderful country house. Fabulous breakfast. We stayed one night but would happily return. This is a boutique b and b. Check if you plan to arrive before 1500 to make sure you can gain access!

Fantastic place, stayed when going to a wedding nearby. Only had time for 1 night but wish we could have stayed for longer! The small touches and the welcoming hospitality make this easily the best place we've stayed this year.

A great base point for exploring everything South West. We stayed in the Van Gogh room, with a huge bathroom, super king size bed, it was worth the treat. Breakfast was lovely,...

Myself and my partner stayed here for a long weekend, our room was beautiful, the bathroom was huge, everything was clean and the staff were extremely brilliant, very genuine people. You got a generous portion of breakfast each morning. It really did feel like a home away from home, we would definitely come back to this hotel.

We spent 4 nights here and truly enjoyed ourselves. Lovely rooms and great bathtub! Breakfast was fantastic, staff very welcoming and helpful. Grounds incredible / lovely to stroll around. Short walking distance to train, pubs and restaurant. Easy commute to Exeter. The only drawback was a very hot room - apparently over the boiler room( so we were not able...
