This B&B is perfectly placed for some of the most fabulous local walks with names to places such as Dippy Copse, Coledridge Wood, Langland Wood, Butterdon Ball Wood and nearby Steps Bridge in the stunning River Teign Gorge. Only open from April to October and well off the beaten track, that track to the house being well BUMPY BUT WORTH THE EFFORT. The website doesn't do it justice, as it is one of Devon's hidden gems. Two heavenly bedrooms both with private bathrooms. Occasional suppers on request and lots of good eating places around.

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.
Tor Royal, a listed property with period decor to match. Wonderful setting high on the Moor at Princetown, this is perfect for the riding treks they have on offer from their own stables.

Evening meals by prior arrangement £20 pp
Owl's Roost is a spacious one bedroom apartment in a quality converted barn. Exposed beams on show. A double bath plus a shower in the bathroom. Private garden for relaxing with BBQ. No dogs, sorry.

Hooks Cottage is not cutting edge modern, more traditional Devonshire. Mary offers 2 bedrooms for B&B. A double and a twin room with a Jack and Jill (between the rooms) bathroom. Separate loo. Although this property is not far from the A38, the dual carriageway junction is over 2 miles distant and the final stretch of the journey takes you into woodlands and the owner's large pretty garden. Meet the friendly dogs, cat and ponies.
If you're planning to visit the famous village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor to take a look at the church of St. Pancras which is known locally as the Cathedral of the Moor, or to spend the day at Widecombe Fair, then you might like to know about this wayside B&B in the village which has 3 rooms on offer. Two of which share a bathroom, and one, a twin/double that sports it's own private shower room. Diana offers a baggage forwarding service and packed lunches for walkers on the nearby Two Moors Way

Share kitchen and toilet facilities. There is also a campsite at the back of the pub. I recommend that you BOOK WELL IN ADVANCE in the bunkhouse as it gets full in Summer with backpackers from all over the world.
Intimate Country House in the Heart of Dartmoor. Generous bedrooms, most with views. Well stocked bar. Excellent restaurant open to non residents and top fishing in the River Dart close by. Shepherd's Hut recently added as an extra bedroom for a romantic outdoor experience. Do see my review where I rave about this hotel.
The bar at this village inn at South Zeal has been open to the public for an amazing 536 years. Landlords Simon and Lyn Powell plan to make it one of the chosen Dartmoor favourites. With fabulous mullioned windows, it is at the very centre of the annual Dartmoor Folk Festival which takes place each August. The newly refurbished bedrooms and bathrooms are all very impressive. Mervyn the cat takes pride of place in the bar. The 4 poster beds are impressive.
