I returned to the wonderful Overcombe House this last weekend for two nights Sat and Sun - I was down to play golf at some nearby golf clubs Trevose and Elfordleigh. I booked one of the new improved Classic rooms - fantastic. The room was superb a lovely new double bed and a superb view from my room over Dartmoor. The breakfasts were delicious - I particulary enjoyed the organic blossom honey. It was great to come back John and David were wonderful hosts.

Room Tip: Book one of the Classic rooms with a view

Just had a fantastic one night stay at the Overcombe on trip to visit close friend who is poorly at Yelverton Nursing home. John and David were brilliant hosts the breakfast was awesome especially the Strawberry Yogurt Yum ! Slept really well in my room and will definately stay longer next time I visit Yelverton. The Overcombe is a fantastic place to stay thank you John and David

Room Tip: My room number 6 was excellent with great views

Excellent stay, lovely breakfast, clean comfortable, a change to have fresh milk instead of those little nasty pots you get in most place's, hospitality brilliant, I do agree with one comment, garden needs a tidy to enable you to have a sit out after breakfast, I do appreciate the wildlife aspect, but as there is no lounge on a sunny day it would be nice, could keep a small overgrown part for wildlife. But lovely people.

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.
