“Peaceful stay in the heart of Dartmoor”
Reviewed 27 October 2010

This fine B & B is a short drive from Chagford on roads typical of Dartmoor. The driving instructions to the B & B were easy to follow. The room was roomy, attractively decorated with a great bed and had a very nice ensuite. Our hosts could not have been more accommodating. They pointed out that our original choice of restaurant had recently changed hands and the meals were no longer of the same standard. They made an alternate suggestion - Ring'O Bells which was very good. The breakfast was huge and delicious. Maureen and John are fascinating people to talk to having spent a great deal of their lives entertaining aboard the QE2.

We spent one night at St. Johns West and enjoyed our experience immensely. Maureen and John were so hospitable and cheerful and made us feel extremely welcome. The rooms were charming and the setting was exceptionally attractive--on the edge of Dartmoor with a beautiful view. Maureen cooked the best English breakfast we had in two weeks of traveling. Driving in Dartmoor is slightly terrifying but memorable to describe to friends once you are safely home. We recommend St. Johns West to all.

The only challenge of St Johns West is driving the roads of Dartmoor, which are not much wider than the car you will be driving. John gives excellent directions. John and Maureen have travelled the world over, having retired from service aboard the QEII. They are wonderful people who are terrific hosts. They'll do anything asked of them. Their home is wonderful. The breakfasts were unbeatable. We stayed three nights, and could have stayed longer. Their home is the perfect base for seeing Dartmoor National Park. Don't stay anywhere else!
