“An excellent stop on the Two Moors Way”
Reviewed 18 July 2011

We really enjoyed our one night's stay, whilst walking the Two Moors Way, at Hilltop in Holne. Mike and Gill are interesting, genteel and kind hosts and we were delighted to be able to share their home and garden on our short visit. We were welcomed with tea and home made cake in the garden when we arrived and were made to feel very "looked-after". Gill's home-made jam is exceptional and the best encountered during our whole trip! The local inn - the Church House - is excellent and we had a very good meal there.

What a lovely welcome we were greated with when we arrived here having walked from Ivybridge as part of the Two Moors Way, we were offered Tea & Cake in the garden and the hosts were more than happy to help with anything we needed or just leave us alone to sit and relax.
The rooms are really nicely done and a good size too, the only thing that you could ask for is a TV or a double bed as neither are available, but being out on the moor is not about watching TV. You feel very much like you are staying with friends and not in an anonymous hotel. Breakfast is well done and offers a good variety.
There is a lovely pub just down the round and fantastic scenery all around you that you can see from your window and walk to without need for a car, what more could you want? Plus if you do want any tips Gill and Mike are only too happy to help.

We found this B&B by chance - it is on the 2 Moors Way (walkers path) on Dartmoor in the village of Holne. There were 2 guest rooms - spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. Our room was large - with 2 single beds and a spare bed for a third person. The views of Dartmoor from the room were wonderful. They have a beautiful water garden and ponds too (so not very suitable for young children). The immaculate bathroom (shower and bath) was down the corridor but as no one was in the other guest room it was used only by us. (There was a washbasin in the room too). The breakfast was one of the best we have had in a B&B! Full english - with local sausages/bacon and eggs from the farm in the village, homemade jams etc. I am a vegetarian and Gill was happy to do grapefruit, yoghurts etc. Gill and Mike were wonderful hosts - so welcoming, full of local knowledge and keen walkers themselves. They saved us from a lot of 'tourist traps' and sent us off to discover lesser known Dartmoor! On the day we arrived Gill gave us homemade cake and a cup of tea (which you don't get in a lot of B&B's!) and we always had fresh milk in the room for tea and coffee. They had 2 very friendly black labradors called Tess and Hebe who liked to be made a fuss of! Great pub in the village (not that cheap but fantastic food) called the Church House Inn which is 2 or 3 minutes walk from the house. Lots of other pubs that you could drive to as well. Will be going back!!

  • Liked — Clean, comfortable, friendly, could walk from the house onto Dartmoor.
  • Disliked — No TV in room! But everything else perfect!
