The Experience

Tea and scones will be waiting. Find long, leafy views to wake up to, a pool for lazy summer days, ponds and a big colourful garden with a summerhouse. Liz and Mark have restored their house with care, uncovering beams and lovely bits of old wood and filling it with original art and books. Bedrooms are inviting: sink-into beds, china pieces on white window sills, a pot of garden flowers, local fudge and homemade cake. They are keen on sourcing the best local produce and their host of hens lay your breakfast eggs. Dartmoor and the south coast are at your feet; return to a friendly hello from Zennor the dog by the fire.

Accommodation

Reviews

Relaxation begins as soon as you arrive. You are served cream tea in the garden, the lounge with a view of the garden or in the dining room. The rooms are lovingly furnished, well kept, clean and lacking nothing. Every day you will find a delicious homemade cake in your room to enjoy with coffee or tea. Breakfast is in a class of its own and is prepared with local ingredients. Bulleigh Barton Manor is in a quiet location and allows you to escape from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and yet you can reach Exeter, Totnes, Dartmoor and the coast for example without a long drive.

This is without question a gem. Peaceful relaxing spotlessly clean all in a beautiful location. Liz is a 1st class host extremely helpful & friendly. The breakfast (excellent options) was delightful as were the Cream teas on arrival. Perfect stay

Geoff, Northwich

I’ve stayed here several times & always stay in the garden suite with my dog & it’s great to have separate access to the grounds. The beds are unbelievably comfortable with lovely bed linen. The area is so peaceful - I immediately feel relaxed as soon as I arrive……. Liz’s breakfasts & afternoon cake are delicious & my dog certainly appreciates his welcome hamper in the bedroom plus his own breakfast menu! For those who don’t like dogs there are separate eating areas, so no issues. I can thoroughly recommend a visit here with so many lovely places to visit within a 45 min drive.

Gillian, Poole

My mother, my two brothers and I visited Devon over three days for a trip down memory lane. Bulleigh Barton Manor is simply a wonderful place to stay. The welcome and the service offered by owners Liz and Mark is friendly and discreet. A home from home. Good sized well appointed bedrooms and plenty of space in the dining and sitting rooms. The views of the rolling hills is a real tonic and to take time to wonder the garden is enjoyable. The breakfast is fabulous and the personal touches make it special when returning from daily excursions. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

John, Denston, Suffolk

We’ve stayed here several times and have always received an extreme warm welcome from Liz and Mark. Nothing is too much trouble for them . We’ve stayed in the Brooking room and Garden room, both are spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The surrounding garden and countryside is beautiful and visitors are welcome to explore the grounds. The food at breakfast is all locally sourced , freshly cooked, delicious and plenty of it, not to mention a cream tea on arrival and delicious cakes every day in the room. We always look forward to our visits and are never disappointed.

Lesley, Bristol

Situated in a beautiful location Bulleigh Barton Manor is a wonderful place to stay. We received a warm welcome from Liz and her lovely dog Zennor. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and very comfortable with tasty home made cakes and biscuits on arrival. The breakfast was excellent and we hope to make a return visit very soon.

Philip & Diane, Chippenham

This was our 2nd visit to this lovely relaxing place. It will definitely be our ‘go to’ whenever we are in the area in the future as well. This has honestly got to be the best B&B we have stayed in, there is nothing not to love about it! The hosts are amazing, friendly, warm and welcoming. The accommodation is first class rivalling that of top hotels, it is comfortable and spotlessly clean and the breakfast is excellent quality. The homemade cakes and biscuits provided in the room each day are a great touch too. I thoroughly recommend Bulleigh Barton Manor.

Linda, Chatham

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable four nights in Bulleigh Barton Manor in April 2022. We have returned here several times and enjoy the relaxed, peaceful environment. Liz and Mark are gracious and friendly hosts, whose attention to detail is excellent in all respects. The food is of a very high quality, with a wide choice of breakfast menu, and the home-made scones and cakes are much appreciated.

Duncan, Coventry

A wonderfully relaxing stay. Liz was an amazing hostess, even before we arrived she sent detailed emails about where to eat and to where to walk with a spaniel. In fact the dog was even more spoilt than we were with a hamper of goodies, including freshly cooked sausages, waiting for him in the room. Liz’s food was delicious from the huge cream tea on arrival to the huge breakfast before we left and homemade cakes in the room. We had a gorgeous bathroom and glorious view from the bedroom. All three of us had a wonderful stay two night stay and look forward to returning.

Sarah, Gloucestershire

To be met by one of the very best Devon cream teas, the lovely feeling of home as the fireplace says, to the lovely company of Liz and Mark and Zennor, too! A breakfast to die for, cakes from heaven, this place is truly special and we’re coming back! See you in July!

Michaela & Andy, Worcestershire

A lovely welcome from Liz and Zennor. Superbly equipped, clean, warm and beautiful accommodation. Great food (and cakes) and the doggies welcome hamper was much appreciated, too! Many thanks for everything.

Val and Roger, Twyford

Our second visit this year and once more the breakfasts and comfort all sublime! Thanks to you both.

Pam and Tony, Gloucestershire

A great find, all perfect and Liz makes your stay truly memorable. We shall be back.

ANTHONY, Bookham, Surrey

What a place. Very friendly and helpful couple, Room was stunning and had nice touches. Breakfast was one of the best we have had. Over all 10/10 will be going back again and must.

Michael, Coventry

Absolutely perfect B&B. Liz and Mark really have thought of everything. They are welcoming and friendly. Our room and bathroom was beautiful and supplied with tea, coffee (fresh), home made cakes, fudge, lovely toiletries. Breakfast was incredible. I cannot think of one thing that was not perfect.

Alison, Shaftesbury

We had the best stay here with Liz and Mark. Every thing was wonderful. The house was a delight and the garden with views perfect. Our breakfast was delicious and we would highly recommend staying at this lovely B&B. A really nice touch was upon arrival we were given a lovely Devon cream tea. We had our miniture Dacshund with us who was made to feel very welcome. We will defiantly return for a longer visit next time.

Dilly, Lacock Wiltshire

Liz & Mark have simply the best B&B in Devon - I've been visiting for months and always look forward to coming back. It really is a home from home, with the warmest welcome!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Liz & Mark Lamport

  • We're five miles from Totnes, a unique town with scores of delightful medieval buildings and the home of the transition town movement. Best of all it's on the River Dart. A paddle steamer trip down to Dartmouth is a great way to see the area.
  • Explore Dartmoor, one of the first national parks to be created and the largest open space in southern Britain. It bears the imprint of human habitation dating back 6000 years. Now wildlife has reclaimed the moor, ponies graze where once there were mines.
  • Visit Britain's seafood coast, said to produce the best fish in the UK. The capital is Brixham where you can dine in a seafood restaurant overlooking the harbour and watch as they land the local specialities, Dover sole, turbot and shellfish.
  • Sir Arthur Conan Doyle came to Ipplepen to research the legend of the supernatural hound that stalked Dartmoor, on which his book The Hound of the Baskervilles is based. Few people now claim to see the hound but the house where he stayed still stands.
  • Follow the Agatha Christie literary trail through South Devon. See her holiday home, Greenway, and the places that inspired her work. From the boathouse at Greenway to the secluded Elberry Cove, her murderers lurk in every corner of this landscape.
  • Coleton Fishacre, the country home of the D'Oyly Cartes, was built in the 1920s. The love and passion poured into the creation of this house and garden is evident. Upstairs and downstairs are lovingly preserved, visiting pianists can play their Bluthner!
