We had booked the Lydford Country House at short notice on the internet and knew little about it. We were pleasantly surprised by an attractive old Devon building, with wood floors, simple decor and tasteful furnishings. We were greeted on arrival and shown our room with minimum delay and no fuss. The first floor room was well appointed, well decorated,...

Had a really lovely stay here, perfect for a country weekend get away! Our room was very clean and cosy! Breakfast was very yummy also, with options of both a continental and a full English breakfast, the menu also offered a vegetarian option!Greeted and welcomed upon arrival, very pleased with our stay overall! Would definitely stay here again!

Located in the peaceful Devon countryside on the borders of Dartmoor, this small hotel had a calm dignity about it. Our ground floor room had well-chosen furnishings giving it a very individual feel. We were offered fresh milk for our room which was a nice touch. The bathroom was adequate but the shower was unreliable. Scaffolding outside the window which...

The breakfast was exceptionally good offering delicious local farm sausages & bacon . The service from the young staff was very impressive and there were alternative choices...

We stayed here for three nights while exploring Dartmoor and visiting National Trust properties. The accommodation, staff and breakfasts were first rate. Although on the edge of Dartmoor all parts of the moor are quickly accessible by car and the wonderful walk in Lydford Gorge is almost on the doorstep. There are several places to eat reasonably close by and...

I almost hate to say how lovely this place is in case in we can not book in ever again. Tranquil, accommodating, peaceful, the superlatives are deserved, stylish, clean and the staff cannot do enough for you. We have now stayed 8 times and just booked another. Addiction is not even close. Book in, disconnect and relax.

Stayed for a few days to explore Devon a little bit. Check in was super easy, friendly staff throughout the stay. Rooms well appointed, general feel of the hotel is homely. Breakfast was included in room cost, and was decent and cooked to order, nothing spectacular but a good start to the day. Only down side was lack of wifi...

When we arrived we thought both the hotel and our hosts were charming but it wasn't until we were halfway home did we realise that our card had been charged £63.75 extra and was done in a very underhanded manner, no phone call or email to discuss the reason for this charge, I had to ring to find out why....

Dear Tracey, A very unfortunate situation but thankfully very rare, had you not smoked in the room I’m certain you would have come away feeling very different. Firstly; our future guests have no need to beware of ‘Hidden’ Charges as you call it, as 99.99% of our guests would never dream of smoking in a our rooms, so this is...

Situated on the outward fringe of the village this hotel, which stands in lovely grounds, is archetypical of the "country house hotel" genre. Check in was quick and efficient and the young man on duty even brought some fresh milk to our room to have with our coffee. The room (Vixen Tor) was relatively plain in terms of furnishings and...
