“wonderful stay at overcombe hotel”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

what a great five night stay with friendly attentive hosts David and John- lovely clean and well furnished room- wonderful breakfast for two hungry cyclists- so convenient for walkers and cyclists to enjoy The Drakes Trail - which passes just a 100 metres from the hotel--this meanders through the valleys from Tavistock to Plymouth and is mostly traffic free- well worth a visit !!

Room Tip: Found David very helpful to speak to in order to choose the best room

some say it was easy to find - not so easy in the dark, so if doing that use a Sat Nav, but then that is true of many places.
David & John were so clearly dedicated to making everyone's stay as pleasant as possible, real "people-people" the cleanliness has been emphasised by others - I echo this, those TV programme hotel inspectors could have run their white glove fingers anywhere in our room and not found a speck of dirt.
If you like to support wildlife then this is a great place to stay, the variety of birds coming to their seed feeders make breakfast room viewing a treat. Our room was directly over the breakfast room and well sound insulated from it with great views across to Dartmoor over the wildlife garden.
Breakfast with locally sourced sausages and bacon, excellently cooked fresh to order meant that we two foodies had a great time. Coffee was so good they gave us the details and we are ordering some for home.
an easy recommendation for left leaning and greening liberal foodies like me.

Room Tip: room 6 view is delightfully over the wildlife garden and trees to the moor beyond - no need for net...

What a wonderful hotel!! clean, tidy, comfy and most welcoming! David and John were so kind and attentive, and the breakfasts were a treat! we will recommend Overcombe house to all our friends and relatives who visit this beautiful part of Devon in the future.
5 min walk is Drakes trail, which meanders through valleys with stunning vistas , or 5 min in the other direction to the picturesque village of Horrabridge and the London Inn for really great food., Overcombe House is in an ideal location. A great place to stay if you want to explore Dartmoor, or further afield to the beaches of north and south devon.

Room Tip: our view of the moors was stunning! get a room with a view!!

we spent 8 nights in this beautiful guesthouse. It was easy to find it. We were welcomed very kindly by John, one of the owners. The room was pretty spacious and extraordinary clean. We had a great view over the Dartmoor. John and David were always very kind and gave lots of advices for our trips and walks. They were most helpful when we had a problem with our rental car. The breakfast was excellent (most of all the fruit salad). We would come again anytime.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Overcombe House and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Our room was lovely and spacious with a very comfortable double bed. The shower room was immaculately clean with everything we might need provided. David & John were extremely welcoming and helpful with our visit to the local area. Breakfast was top notch with very luxurious extras such as clotted cream yoghurts! Nothing was too much trouble and they had a fantastic range of teas and coffees to suit all tastes and requirements. Can't recommend this bed and breakfast enough. Thank you

My wife & I stayed with David & John again this year. Again, nothing was too much trouble, and the attention to details was meticulous. The food was first class. Cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.
