Truly unique Dartmoor location. I'm sure that this is the most remote B&B on my list. Well off the beaten track surrounded by massive views, stretching down into Cornwall. Ponies, sheep, wild flowers and birdsong. Quality B&B on one of the prettiest footpath walks in Devon. Offering 1 en-suite (shower) double room + 2 further rooms sharing a private bathroom (1 family room and 1 twin - flexible accommodation. Good English breakfasts, clean air, massive starlight night skies plus a warm welcome for walkers and families. Stunning, I loved it.
This barn conversion with good views gets plenty of repeat bookings. Room for 6 plus a baby. Ruth Boswell told me that the barn is very family friendly rather than chic accommodation, and looking at the prices I see that it is very competitively priced. The highest charge in the school holidays is just £599 and as low as £270 in low season. Babysitting on offer and stair gate, highchair and cot on request. Bed linen is included in the price but towels are extra. Some electricity (90 units) is included in the rental then charged.
20 minute drive to Dartmoor these 2 adjoining cottages are in a quiet hamlet north of Dartmoor, one cottage sleeps 5 people. One cottage sleeps 3. Views towards Dartmoor. Only 18 miles to the sea. Central heating, linen and towels included. Off road parking.
A country house hotel with smart restaurant open to non residents. I can recommend the bar which has a real fire and a good range of local ales and whiskey, for lunch after walking on nearby Haytor Rocks. Contemporary style in the bedrooms and throughout the hotel. Super gardens. Off road car park. Licenced for weddings.

No loud music, no traffic noise, stunning starry skies, peace and quiet and of course, a friendly atmosphere.

Bluebell Cottage can be found just 300 yards from Chagford village centre. It has been lovingly restored to reflect its 1750s origins and the owner's fondness for things from a bygone age.

3 miles from Ashburton. A home in the country with far views.

Three letting rooms in total, a large en-suite double and 2 more rooms, a double and a twin which share a bathroom, that Iris only lets as 1 or 2 rooms to one single party and at four people in these 2 rooms is only £100 which is very good value indeed.

Close to Castle Drogo. Charming house with garden to match. Elegant Bed and breakfast in truly excellent walking country. Tim has 3 gorgeous rooms on offer, 2 en-suites and one with a private bathroom. All rooms overlook the beautiful garden.
There are 14 bedrooms at the Cromwell Arms in the heart of Bovey Tracey. One of them is a family room that can sleep up to 6, and the thing that I like is that they offer this room as "ideal for a group of people who are on a budget and don't mind sharing." What a wonderful way of putting it! Many groups of walkers are on a budget, so it's right, this is a good option. Add to that the fact that the pub offers good food, a pub quiz every Tuesday AND THAT there is also a therapy room for aromatherapy massage, reflexology and Reiki natural healing, then this looks just the place for a few nights away doesn't it?
Located in the peaceful Dartmoor hamlet of Horndon, a warm welcome awaits you at the 18th Century farmhouse. There are beautiful moorland views from each of the three bedrooms. With easy access to the moor Higher Rowes is ideally situated for those long walks, rides or cycles
Short toddle from centre of Moretonhampstead town. Perfect for bookworms as the house is stacked with great books. My idea of comfort. Guaranteed good breakfast as Victoria is a good cook.
