Sampsons Farm Country Hotel
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Newton Abbot
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Our overnight stay at Sampson's Farm was the first prize in a lottery and what a splendid prize it turned out to be - lovely location near the River Teign, friendly and obliging staff, peaceful room with its own decked veranda where we could drink tea and watch the birds at the feeders and Basil and Rocket the goats. We will return!

Room Tip: Rooms in Lower Teign Barn have a lovely view.

We've just had a three day break at Sampsons Farm and were made to feel like royalty. The staff were friendly, courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very comfortable with a nice view of the farm land. We ate breakfast in the restaurant and the selection of food was great and certainly something for everyone.

We had two evening meals in the restaurant and the food was of exceptional quality. I have travelled to numerous destinations in the world, but can honestly say the quality and presentation of the food was excellent. We will definitely be returning for further visits.

Room Tip: As far as I am aware all the rooms are of equal calibre

My wife and I have just returned from our first stay at Sampsons Farm , and it certainly wont be the last. The staff were very helpful, nothing was to much trouble for them, we had a very nice room, spotlessly clean, good food and a lovely setting. Highly recommended. Denis + Meryll

All in all a very pleasant evening. Menu was quite small but the food and presentation was excellent. All the staff were very friendly. Bar choices were a little limited (bottled beer only) and our first choice of wine from a local vineyard was out of stock. The building itself is full of character and the dining area was very tastefully decorated. Will most likely revisit.

Always happy to return to this lovely restaurant, with its limited menu it's always cooked to perfection and you can taste the quality in their ingredients. Although its small inside, the restaurant is happy to accommodate wheelchair access but mobility scooters may struggle in the corridors. Be careful if you're tall though, plenty of low beams to catch your head on!

I visited family who were staying at the farm and whilst the setting was lovely the room left a lot to be desired. They paid for an upgrade to a larger room but the room was still very small, with tired decor, especially in the bathroom, and leaves that were on the floor when they arrived were still there when they left 2 days later!
They informed me that the breakfast was lovely on the second morning but they were disappointed with the quality of bacon used for the full english breakfast. Would I stay there? No, sadly I probably wouldnt. However, if a little time was spent updating the decor and ensuring the rooms were cleaned thoroughly daily and prior to arrival this place would be a little gem.

This is the second time that my wife and myself have stayed at Sampsons Farm And can once more sing their praises when it come to guest care, accommodation and staff excellence. On one evening we entertained our daughter and her partner to an evening meal and can honestly state that the meal was of excellent standard and was of real value for money. We will most certainly stay at this establishment again and again and we have no hesitation in recommending others to stay and eat at Sampsons Farm.
