The hosts Gil and Dave are fantastic, so welcoming and willing to make your stay a really special one. The rooms are ultra clean and nice with fresh towels each day and tea and coffee making facilities with the added bonus of fresh milk left in a flask for you to use. Nice touches like freshly brewed coffee as soon as we arrived accompanied by biscuits. Gil makes her own yoghurt, Dave the bread and with eggs from their chickens ( some of which I have brought back with me) breakfast is stunning and really sets you up for the day.
My sister ( who beat me with her independent review below) had the larger room with the conservatory and the views are spectacular. I had the smaller room behind but to be honest apart from the space they are both a similar standard. i.e. outstanding. Given a choice most people would/ should plump for the larger room with the views, but as we had the benefit of booking both and there is an interconnecting door it was lovely for me too.
In short, if you have a car and are in the Tavistock area (only a 5 - 10 minute drive away) stay here - you wont regret it and will have a wonderful time.
Oh and dont miss the Blacksmiths Arms in the village (Lamerton), wonderful food used by the locals and very reasonable prices
