The best traditional farmhouse B&B that I know


Trudie has been listed on my website from the start some 15 years ago, and the feedback that comes back
year on year just reinforces what I feel about the farmhouse. These rosettes proudly displayed in the guest 
sitting room are from Trudie and her daughter Helen's triumph at horse driving events, but they could equally 
be given to this bed and breakfast for the high standards they have achieved in their beautiful home 

All three bedrooms are charming. En-suite and spacious with plenty of vintage pictures and ornaments.

This gorgeous four poster room is one of my top recommends for honeymooners. Every room is a joy. 

All three letting rooms look out to the front of the house, in this pretty hamlet on the North of Dartmoor.
Views are of fields and stock beyond the very quiet road outside. It's a working farm and the building is 13th
century listed. Guests who stay say that it's like stepping back in time. This twin room has a shower room en-suite.

Curl up with a book if you fancy. Or walk straight out and enjoy the Dartmoor hills all around you.
Trudie or Robert her husband will point you in the right direction to enjoy this unspoilt landscape.

Trudie had been in the breakfast room rubbing Antiquax into the dining room tables before we arrived.
I stopped off in the village on the way home to buy myself a tin, the smell was that wonderful.

Old World charm everywhere and I know that the breakfasts are generous with local produce of course.


These are just a few of the photos I took. Each room offered a dozen shots.
Trudie has the knack of presenting 'stuff' in very attractive collections. 

Take a look at the guest sitting room. I think she'd find it hard to get rid of me if I was booked in!
A real fire, low beams, comfy settees and a whole pile of quality mags and books.... perfect.

Even in this grey weather mid April, the welc
ome is on show at the gate.
