I have stayed here many times over the years on business, but this was a first with my family. The Ridgeway is run by Kevin & Carol, and I would describe it as my home from home, a very cosy home feel to a small hotel, four luxury rooms within the main hotel, we had two booked, both with kingsize beds, large en suites one with Jack & Jill hand basins.
A very cosy fireside bar area with a good selection of local beers, and the food is the best around the area, with a lot of the meat and vegetables produced by Kevin & Carol we can recommend the full devon breakfast! We also sampled the mixed grill and fillet steaks for our evening meals, and worth the wait they certainly were! Great value for money overall, compared to what you pay for rooms and food in your run of the mill chain hotels, and the majority do not compare to this gem of a place! If you are in the area check it out for a great all round experience.
