We were looking for a nice B&B close to Tavistock for a family birthday party and had this little gem recommended to us by a local!
We booked the twin bedded room with its own conservatory overlooking the swimming pool and wonderful views of Dartmoor. It is very spacious and was very clean with comfortable beds and good quality bedding.
The en-suite was also spacious with large walk-in shower with good water supply and fluffy towels. Fresh towels were supplied every day.
The flat screen television had a lot of channels to choose from plus a radio is supplied.
Lovely welcome on arrival from Dave & Gil and she brought along freshly brewed coffee and loads of biscuits. There are tea making facilities in the room and fresh milk is supplied nightly in a flask.
Breakfasts are substantial with fresh fruit and home made yoghurt, cereals, substantial English breakfast with local bacon and sausages, their own free range eggs and Dave makes the bread. There are some nice local walks to reduce the waistline!
There is a country road adjacent so you'll get some traffic noise but it is generally not obtrusive. Just up the road is a local garage and mini supermarket/village shop.
We stayed for three nights and paid a discounted rate of £62 per night for two people which we thought very good value for the quality of the accommodation, the location and the food.
Thank you Dave & Gil for running such a lovely B&B and making us so welcome. We plan to return.
