The rooms are nice, clean and bright and the breakfasts are enjoyable.
Check out is pretty early being 10.00am.
Whilst it is clean etc., it was the least atmospheric of any of the places we stayed in terms of its welcome- which I would describe as business like.
We stayed locally in a number of farm based B&Bs - clearly these are not listed with the larger search engines (such a booking.com and laterooms)- but they are readily available in this area and they provide a very different kind of experience. Of course it depends what you are after!
Personally, there is something wonderful about looking out over fields, having milk and fresh eggs fresh from source- for me this was much more of a complete break from everything. Devon is blessed as such BBs are abundant in this area and accordingly they are worth seeking out. In my experience this results in one's stay feeling more like Devon and less like a London.
The house is described as a hotel and BB but in essence it is a BB- as no other services are offered. So you may have to travel further afield if you wish to dine at any time after the allotted breakfast time. The local pub in Chillington has closed down but there are some nice local pubs within 1-3 miles away which are worth checking out- Stay Bay (I think that's right, is a few miles away and has a great pub which serves fantastic seafood). Alternatively it is about 4-5 miles from Kingsbridge if you want to tap into its amenities, as there is little to nothing in Chillington which is a bit unfortunate.
It is clean, the rooms are nice but it left me cold. .
