Me and my Partner stayed here for two nights whilst visiting family in the area. Dave and Gill were very helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable although a little small. Great breakfast all made from local produce. We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked again for later in the year

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

We were 4 cyclists staying at Appledown House on 3July 2014, we couldnt have been made more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble.
Really lovely 2 rooms completely self contained. One room with wonderful views over the countryside. The excellent breakfast set us up for the next days cycling! After a very welcome lift into Tavistock!!

Room Tip: If you are one couple, then the main bedroom with the conservatory is stunning.

We were made very welcome. Breakfasts with locally produced food were very enjoyable. Can't better other reviewer's comments. Very good directions to main A30 were easy and quiet, saving the traffic through Tavistock and the main road. Thanks.

My husband and I stayed at Appledown House for four nights and enjoyed the best sleep in months!
The annex room was beautifully clean, stylish and well stocked with tea, coffee, biscuits and fresh milk. Our conservatory windows gave us a stunning view across the countryside.
The breakfasts are absolutely amazing; with locally sourced sausages and bacon, Cornish hand-churned butter, homemade bread and eggs from Dave's own chickens! Gil's homemade yoghurt is delicious over granola cereal.
The Martin's are wonderful hosts and we will definitely return to this beautiful place in Devon again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our nights stay at Appledown. We stayed in the conservatory room and it was very comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived with a tray of tea and biscuits and fresh milk provided for drinks for the morning.
We enjoyed a very nice breakfast at a time we nominated and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Very good value for money, and I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

We would like to thank Gill and Dave for a lovely nights stay, you were wonderful hosts and very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Our bedroom was very clean,spacious and bed very comfy. The welcome tea and biscuits were yum and nice to have after a long drive. The water pressure in the shower was great too, which is sometimes a hit and miss when traveling. Breakfast was great with plenty to eat and good quality (we loved the home made bread with the locally made butter and the eggs from your chickens!) We hope we can return again but for longer. We shall recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you once again, Amanda and Justin, Tasmania :)

Appledown was perfectly positioned for me and its facilities were perfect too: the room was clean, comfortable and more than big enough for me in the supersize bed! It was a very cold spell and the extra heater was welcome to provide instant warmth on my return in the evening. The breakfast was good, I especially enjoyed the home-made yoghurt, conserves and bread; the freshly laid eggs were wonderful. Gil is a welcoming host and I hope to return.
