I paid a visit to Penny at Brook Farmhouse and absolutely loved it! Ancient thatched farmhouse full of charm. Homemade biscuits to have with your tea. Easy access into Exeter. I thought that it had only one bedroom on offer, but actually there are 3 bedrooms which Penny will only let to one party, so it is most frequently used just as a double. Apart from the huge main bedroom there is a spacious double and a child's bedroom, again with a double bed on offer. They share a bathroom, but it's a great space at the top of your own private, steep, charming staircase plus your own roomy guest lounge.

Moorland walks taking in stunning Haytor Rocks, ponies and buzzards are straight from the gate. High quality dining in the restaurant or opt for the Blue Tiger, a bistro with sun terrace offering the hotel's own smoked meat platters, dips, cheese or beef fondues and sushi selections.
