Good Hotel Guide Review
Wake to birdsong at this mellow stone building in secluded gardens – Bertie and Bryony Hancock’s sophisticated B&B is surrounded by the National Trust’s Buckland Abbey estate, and the 700 acres of grounds that come with it. (B&B guests receive complimentary passes for the abbey, the home of Sir Francis Drake, and may freely explore the gorgeous gardens and sprawl of wooded valley.) The former brew house has been impeccably designed in contemporary country-house style. An elegant drawing room has an open fire and fresh flowers; maps and guide books for browsing. Mullioned windows in the pretty first-floor bedrooms give on to glorious views; glamorous bathrooms have a roll-top bath. At the freshest of breakfasts, sample heaps of home-grown, home-reared produce, plus honey from the bees on the estate.
