Callisham Farm
Ranked #5 of 9 Yelverton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We stayed a couple of nights at this lovely b&b on the edge of Dartmoor, after reading the great reviews. Everything was as good as had been reported - an interesting building with clean well-equipped rooms, and, best of all, a warm welcome from Esme and Brian and the farm dogs.
Within easy reach of a great pub too. Would be happy to recommend to anybody.

Stayed with my 16 year old son at the end of our coast to coast cycling trip or nearly the end. I didn't want to stay in Plymouth and am so glad that I chose Callisham Farm. I read the reviews and as others have said Esme and Brian are such nice people, I don't think there is much I can add to what has already been said, lovely warm welcome, great room, comfy beds and fantastic breakfast. Esme was so helpful and booked a meal for us in the local pub at Meavy which was a 5 minute stroll away and very good. A great find, I am trying to see if I can arrange a return visit with my husband and three boys.

As far as B&B experiences go you wont find a more welcoming and friendly place to stay in Devon. The breakfast is sensational and Esme caters for your every taste. The rooms are typical farmhouse olde worlde and very comfy. The Moor is right on the doorstep and so walkers will be well pleased to stay here. Its a working farm with a number of friendly dogs entered from down tiny lanes and tracks in a truly peaceful location with an excellent pub a short walk away - is there anything better out there - probably not. Nice chatting to you Esme and Brian and thanks for letting us stay with you!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the family room as there were two beds to choose from for that extra bit of space

Probably the best B&B we have stayed in. I was initially suspicious - every reviewer on Trip Advisor gave Callisham 5* in every category. Can anywhere be that good? Well, yes it can! Callisham Farm is a typical old Dartmoor farmhouse with all the period features one would expect. Very comfortable, very clean and Esme's hospitality is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble - if it's humanly possible, Esme will provide it. The family room is more than adequate for two, with plenty of cupboard/drawer space, easy chairs and a large flat screen t.v. Breakfast is substantial, with lots of choice, the full English being sufficiently gargantuan to set you up for a days walking on the Moor, which is easily accessible from the door. The residents' lounge is available for the inevitable Dartmoor damp days but with Yelverton, Tavistock and Plymouth (use the park and ride) within a few miles, rain needn't stop expeditions in the area.

Esme is a gem but everyone is very friendly and helpful - the farm dogs are over the moon to see visitors!

Callisham is off the beaten track but not remote - Meavy, with a fantastic pub (The Royal Oak), is within half a mile. The lanes are narrow and winding and the unmade farm track seems longer than it actually is. Driving slowly is a necessity!

For anyone wanting a holiday either walking Dartmoor, or visiting the surrounding area, Callisham has to be the first choice. We shall be back!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, with country views. The family room has most space, the other two doubles bein...

What a wonderful break we had at Callisham Farm. Esme and Brian are great hosts - more like staying with friends than as guests. We stayed for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very good room, comfortable bed and an excellent breakfast that set us up for the day. All this in a lovely location. If you want a pleasant, relaxing stay on the Moors, look no further.

We stayed for three nights at Callisham Farm and felt utterly spoiled from the beginning to the end of our stay. Esme and Brian were wonderful hosts and there are not enough words to begin to praise the fabulous breakfasts!!! The room was clean, comfortable and cosy. The shower was great and nothing was too much trouble. We really want to keep Callisham Farm as our little secret so that we can return again and again. A truly memorable place - we will return.

What a lovely warm welcome Esme and Brian gave my daughter, granddaughter and me after we trailed over the soggy wet Dartmoor in the wettest summer ever!
Lovely comfortable beds, fantastic breakfast, spotlessly clean and very quiet. We felt like we were miles from anywhere, but Plymouth is close and there are several nice places to eat in the area.
Can't recommend this delightful bed and breakfast enough.
