This was a perfect 2 night stay. Judith and Peter were the friendliest hosts, with Judith going out of her way to ensure that I had black pudding for breakfast. The room was very comfortable and I enjoyed very good night a sleep during my stay. My wife and I enjoyed a glass of wine or two outside in the gardens and the only sound to be heard was birdsong. Breakfast was lovely and there was a lot to choose from. A wonderful stay and a return stay in on the cards. I would recommend this b&b to both family and friends.

We had some initial trouble with our GPS in finding this working farm, but our hostess Judith had given us some instructions which we were able to follow quite well. At the Gulworthy cross roads. Gulworthy school is on the left, turn right here signposted The Copper Penny Inn at Chip shop (a local inn where in olden days miners exchanged their hard earned chips for goods). At the Chipshop Inn turn immediately left follow this lane for approx 0.5 mile then take the first right signposted to Higher Woodley Farm where our farm is 0.5 mile on the right.We arrived just after the evening milking had been completed and were greeted by a very pleasant young lady (daughter?) because judith couldn't be there until a bit later. Tea and very generous portions of cake, then the genial farmer, Peter and his son came in. Had a pleasant chat and got some advice about where to eat...lovely old 15th century Royal Inn at Horsebridge. Easy to find.Separate review. Would have liked to watch the milking but Peter said 5am start so gave that up. Room was very clean, comfortable and views across the farm and a neighbouring farm.our excellent hostess Judith attended to breakfast, there was far more on offer than we could cope with. A lot of local produce and was 1st class.Would have liked to stay in the area a little longer, but couldn't. So many names in the vicinity have been replicated in Tasmania, Australia..Tamar River Valley, Launceston,Devonport..Judith suggested that local miners had found their way to Tasmania, taking the names with them. Sorry to leave. I left a large waterproof jacket in the wardrobe which I didn't miss until the next evening. Rang Judith, she had been trying frantically to ring us, but without success.she very kindly arranged to send it to our hotel in London. Unbelievably, it arrived the next morning. what great, obliging service. Judith would have had to drive into Tavistock I assume, so it was much appreciated. An excellent farm stay, but at the end of the day, it is the people who make a stay good or bad. Nice people at Higher Woodley Farm and an excellent base to see the surrounding country (and the milking if you can get up with the sparrows)

We have stayed with Judith & Peter over quite a period of time now and their standards are excellent. The breakfast is the best and in any combination u require. The bedrooms are not massive but are always well appointed and clean. We hope that we will be able to use their services for many years to come.

By the end of our stay, we were very sad to leave!

From the moment we arrived, Peter and Judith were really friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Any time we needed recommendations as to what to do in the local area, they were a font of information.

The breakfast was excellent - a nice selection of cereals, toast & jam and a lovely cooked breakfast, made with locally sourced ingredients.

It's a working dairy farm, and guests are encouraged to see it in action. We took Peter (and Phil, their son) up on his offer, and enjoyed a tour of the dairy. I even got to help milk one of the cows! Great experience.

The room (the Red room) was perfect - clean and tidy, ample storage, comfy bed, lovely views and a handy en-suite toilet & shower.

For what you get, reasonably priced, too.

My husband and I stayed at Higher Woodley Bed and Breakfast for the night of a friend's wedding. I can't recommend it highly enough - Judith and her husband couldn't have been nicer (helping me with a minor dress-malfunction minutes after we arrived and even driving us to the venue.) The room was lovely and clean, the bed SO comfortable and the breakfast absolutely delicious. We've already recommended it to my husband's parents who now want to stay there too! An easy five stars.
