Visiting friends in the area. Very high and clean standard in the whole of the hotel. Large bed, lovely views from window. Lovely shower. Very clean throughout. Excellent room service. Breakfast catered to all tastes, giving large variety of foods. Staff very friendly. Would certainly return there, hopefully in the near future. Thank you.

Room Tip: The superior suite was excellent

We really enjoyed our stay at Leworthy Farmhouse and found it to be everything a B & B should be and more. A warm welcome, comfy beds, plenty of hot water, soft fluffy towels, superb breakfasts and a most delightful lounge with a cosy fire in the evenings. Thank you Jackie and Colin for making our stay so perfect.

This was our second visit to Leworthy and it certainly will not be the last. Due to the recent bad weather in the south west we were in two minds whether or not to postpone our visit, however we are really happy we decided to go ahead as we had a thoroughly relaxing time thanks to Jackie and Colin's hospitality.
It has all been said in so many of the previous reviews but everything about this B&B is second to none.

The rooms are very comfortable and peaceful, the breakfast exceptional for both choice and quality and the welcome from Jackie and Colin is fantastic. Our special thanks to Jackie for catering for my wife's gluten and dairy intolerances both at breakfast time and for the evening meals we had at Leworthy.

Like so many things in life the devil is in the detail and Jackie and Colin make sure the detail is right in Leworthy.

We have stayed a few times now and would highly recommend Leworthy, the rooms are lovely and clean well equipped with the essentials. Colin and Jackie are fantastic hosts caring for your every whim the service is second to none, We can highly recommend the breakfast whether it's the traditional full english or anything on the menu all freshly cooked and a treat on the taste buds. Doesn't feel like a b and b at all more like home.

Fantastic place and people. Lovely homely stay and all amenities you could wish for. Could not fault any part of it. Amazing breakfast with lots of local produce and glorious eggs from the on site hens. Lovely welcome from Colin & Jackie with tea and homemade cake on arrival, which was much appreciated after an eight hour drive! Would definitely stay again if in the area.

Room Tip: Superior room with view of garden, hens, geese and lake - beautiful

Clearly much thought has gone into creating a smoothly run B & B venture as evidenced by attention to detail both in respect of furnishings and facilities available within the rooms as well as the impressive range of high quality appetizing items on offer for breakfast.

Even though our family, who were visiting relatives in a nearby nursing home, only stayed for one night (in two rooms) Colin and Jackie made us feel very welcome and we look forward to returning again, if possible, when Leworthy Farmhouse re-opens next month.

In an attempt to come up with a little constructive criticism can only suggest more prominent signage to entrance (particularly for arrivals on torrential rain/windy nights) whilst the C.H. system coming on at 6 a.m. seemed to be remarkably noisy. Not really big deals though.

Overall, a great place to stay!

Room Tip: For a view out over the extensive gardens and lake (and the menagerie) then ask for either room 6 or...

JackienColin, Owner at Leworthy Farmhouse, responded to this review, 15 January 2014
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a positive review, it was lovely to meet you all.

With regard to your constructive criticism, we are aware from another couple who stayed in the same room as you that there is a noise. After much investigation, we have tracked down the source, it is in fact the shower pump which serves the B&B. Unfortunately on this particular morning we had a lady staying who took a very early shower, hence you hearing it so early.

We have spoken to the pump manufacturers who recommended installing acoustic matting under the pump which prevents vibration and noise. We have since done this and confirm that they are correct!!

Thank you also for making us aware of the lack of a sign to direct you from the car park to our front gate which we understand could lead to confusion when dark and wet outside. We will give this some thought and come up with a suitable solution.

Thank you again for your feedback, unless you tell us we cannot put things right and as you are aware our Customers comfort at all times is our number one priority.

We hope to see you all again in the near future.

Kind Regards
Jackie and Colin

We chose Leworthy Farmhouse for our stay in Devon after seeing all the positive comments published on TripAdvisor. Everything that has been said in praise of Leworthy is true – and then some.

Our hosts, Jackie and Colin, made us most welcome on arrival with a tray of tea and cakes in the lounge – much appreciated after a drive of 300 miles. Our room, with en-suite facilities, was spacious, spotless, comfortable and perfectly appointed. There was even a small tin of homemade fudge for our delight!

The magnificent view from our bedroom demanded further exploration and that is when we discovered that much of the food presented at the sumptuous breakfast table is home reared in the three acres of grounds behind the house – everything of superb quality and plenty of it!

Jackie and Colin were the perfect hosts throughout our stay – never obtrusive but somehow always there if you needed them. We would certainly recommend Leworthy Farmhouse to anyone and would not consider staying anywhere else whilst in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 & 7 offer the best views.
