When you stop to think of the things an ideal B&B should have, Manor Cottage goes a long way towards satisfying pretty much the entire list. The room we had was cosy and comfortable, and had its own private bathroom across the hall for us to use exclusively. There were coffee & tea making facilities, a television, a selection of books and information on the local area to browse as well as a nice sitting area at the back of the cottage which even had a piano.
The couple who run Manor Cottage are both lovely people, and they breed their own hens which lay the eggs for breakfast! These are free range in the truest sense of the word, and you can truly taste it. We even bought a half dozen to take home with us on our last day. Packed lunches are available for a mere £3.50 (all local, homemade produce) and there is parking too.
Manor Cottage's location is perfect if you want to explore the moors and the local vicinity. Widecome-in-the-moor itself is a delightful village, and Manor Cottage is right in the heart of it - with the Old Inn pub just next door. There is also a fantastic pub (The Rugglestone Inn) 1/5 of a mile away, with exceptionally good food and ale selections.
I'd recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable place to spend their holiday in Devon, particularly for walkers, members of the National Trust (plenty of properties and parks nearby) and those wanting to get away from it all. Our stay at Manor Cottage was thoroughly relaxing and we couldn't have asked for anything more.
