This is a friendly place where you’ll feel at home – sit and chat with Penny and Paul, read by the big inglenook in your own sitting room, enjoy tea and home-baked cake when you arrive. Aga-cooked breakfasts are served in the sitting room: a delicious tableful of home-pressed apple juice, eggs from the hens, homemade jams, seasonal fruit salad, local sausages and bacon – and bread from their daughter’s bakery in Okehampton.
Step up the spiral stone stairs to your large bedroom; the bed is beautifully dressed and there are always vases of Penny’s flowers as well as a tea tray with homemade shortbread and fruit. If you have extra family or friends, you can spill over into two further rooms.
Drive to Dartmoor National Park in a few minutes – there’s a lovely two-hour walk in ancient Fingle Woods in Teign Valley, on the edge of the park. Have a day out on the Devon coast. Marvel at the star-studded night skies.
