Thank you so much for a tranquil, warm and welcoming stay. Both Kate and Nathan are wonderful hosts. The room was gorgeous-bed so comfortable, shower room stylish with lovely extras! Nothing was to much and I will be returning! Thank you!

Kate and Nathan work really hard to make this place beautiful, comfortable, welcoming and clean. Bed was super comfortable and room was lovely and spacious. Breakfast was phenomenal: so fresh and huge portions to fill you up for the whole day! Lovely to spend some time in their beautiful garden too. I defy anyone not to enjoy their stay here. Highly recommend!!

I was in a Devon for a training course, Gages Mill attracted me for its location & en suite rooms! It exceeded my expectations, the room was bright, immaculately clean and the matress brilliant quality. The linens are high quality silky cotton- perfect! The shower was a large corner one - plenty of room to shower in comfort. Everything was high standard. Breakfast was best quality yoghurt and cereals (not cheap stuff hidden in tupperware boxes) lovely fresh fruit, cooked breakfasts were fab & generous. Little things like proper salt n pepper mills at breakfast, real twinings tea and yummy cookies in my room all made me happy, as well as lots of magazines/books/maps/wine to browse in the lounge.
Kate & Nathan are the perfect hosts - always there just when you need them and then disappearing into the background! As I was alone it was lovely to have someone greet me whenever I came 'home' - and it felt like 'home' too. It was well worth the money and soooo much nicer than an anonymous budget hotel. I really appreciated the high standards Kate and Nathan have set for themselves and their customers. (They have gorgeous gardens to wander as well, if you just seek a bit of peace and quiet.)

I had an excellent stay here. The other reviews have already commented on Kate and Nathan's welcome - they struck the perfect balance between being friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. I felt like I was a friend who had come to stay then night rather than a complete stranger!

A lovely B and B, run by Kate and Nathan who welcomed us warmly and made us feel very at home. Small, but nicely decorated, very clean room with a modern bathroom and huge shower. A quiet night's sleep (which I was glad about as I was a bit concerned that it was too close to the A38, but there was no traffic noise). Delicious breakfast. Wish we had had time to enjoy the pretty garden. Will go again.

If you look for an alternative to an impersonal hotel room - this is abolutely a place to stay.
Nathan & Kate are the ideal hosts, very caring and lovely people and you truely feel welcomed.
The breakfasts are amazing and very filling with a multitude of choices: fresh fruit, cereals, toasts, sweets, ... and then of course a full english breakfast (even a light version) to die for..
The double room on the first floor was quiet, very comfy & we had everything we needed. I don't think you could find a better B&B.
