“Devon B&B at it's best”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

We stayed four nights at this lovely B&B in the village of Lamerton close to Tavistock and were very satisfied with the accommodation and the excellent service provided by the proprietors.

Our room had twin beds with a private bathroom and both were of a very high standard. The bedroom had a flat screen television, tea and coffee making facilities and a walk-in wardrobe. The bathroom was very spacious with a bath, separate walk-in shower, WC and two wash basins. A nice touch were the dressing gowns supplied. Bedding and towels were all of good quality.

Breakfast is taken in the conservatory on the ground floor which overlooks the garden. Binoculars and bird recognition books are provided. The food was very good with options of a full English, porridge and never-ending tea or coffee. Service was first-class.

There is a guest lounge and on arrival tea and biscuits are provided.

There is a local pub about two minutes walk away which serves food. We didn’t try it but it looked well frequented.

We paid £52 per night for bed and breakfast for two people and considered it very good value-for-money.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and intend to return.

Room Tip: Choice of en-suite or private bathroom.

We stayed here for the weekend to attend a falconry experience nearby. It suited the weekend perfectly. The B&B was clean, well done out and in a rural setting. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and the Blacksmiths Arms nearby does good food and beer. I couldn't recommend it more if you are staying in the area. Only downside was that our room wasn't en-suite, but the hall bathroom was dedicated to our room.

Room Tip: Specify en-suite

My partner and I were attending a wedding in nearby Tavistock so we arranged rooms for ourselves and some friends at this fantastic B&B. We had a lovely welcome and our room was outstanding; perhaps the cleanest hotel room I have ever been in!! I think Coombe Lodge has 4 rooms and the large house looks newly built to a very high standard. There is a lovely country pub serving great local food and cider within a couple of hundred yards. Breakfast was very good with great coffee served in a nice little conservatory. I think they are still landscaping the garden but was still very pleasant. Easily within reach of Tavistock by car or taxi (which we thought was outstandingly priced at about £6 for 5+ miles). All in all you won't find any better in terms of comfort, service and friendliness; if you want swimming pools and sauna's look elsewhere but if you want a perfect B&B book this place, in fact go out of your way to try it!!

Room Tip: Try the local Pub for food.

We were visiting some friends that were staying in Looe, which is about 24 miles down the road from here. We could have stayed closer to them, but the reviews of this Lodge were great.

I must say that the reviews where spot on. We arrived earlier then expected and this appears to be no issue at all. We were able to leave our bags and go off to spend time with our friends. The room that we had was very clean. The manager was very nice and helpful with directions.

Had a very good nights sleep and the breakfast was first rate despite the manager being on his own as his wife was not very well.

If you ever need to visit this part of the world, I can really recommend this place.

We stayed here while travelling round the south of England and were so lucky to have found this place.

The owners were very friendly, the rooms brilliantly comfortable and the quaint rural location perfect for kicking back and getting away from the hustle and bustle of the cities.

I would strongly recommend Coombe Wood Lodge especially to couples looking to get away for a short break.

P.S. the breakfast is great!
