Horses in the paddock and no-frills bedrooms at this down-to-earth, friendly B&B. Susie, a retired eventer, lives at one end of the listed longhouse; a scented red rose rambles up one wall, and you step in to a sunny kitchen with a cat snoozing behind the Aga. There's a sitting room with horsey pictures and wood-burner, and bedrooms that reflect the fair price. You'll feast on home-grown fruit compote with Greek yogurt, homemade bread, garden tomatoes, home-laid eggs, honey from Susie's neighbour, rashers from local award-winning pigs. Handy for Exeter, the south coast and Dartmoor; the airport is ten minutes away, the A30 one mile.

"I and my partner have spent three lovely days in Devon and were based at Lower Allercombe Farm. Susie greeted us warmly on our arrival( as did Tilly the gorgeous black Labrador!)and made us a very welcome cup of tea. The rooms were very comfortable and the rates extremely reasonable. Breakfasts were delicious and set us up for the day. Will definitely go back if we're down in Devon. Thank you Susie for your hospitality."
