Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Such a relaxed, friendly place’, Sue Burdge’s thatch-roofed pub-with-rooms, in an ‘attractive village’, is believed to be the oldest inn in the county, with a medieval mural and mullioned window to show for it. Guests today may find more interest, however, in the ‘excellent selection of tempting gins’ lined up in the bar. Come down single-track lanes to find the characterful Devon longhouse, its whitewashed cob walls, ancient beams and inglenook fireplaces. ‘All our family were warmly welcomed. We can’t praise the staff highly enough,’ a Guide reader said in 2017. Bedrooms may not be the latest in style, but they’re ‘warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean’. Two cottages with a lounge and a kitchen are ideal for a family. One evening, sample Bill Keera’s ‘delicious meals’, perhaps crispy pressed pork belly, black pudding mash, honey-roasted apple, cider sauce; another, dine at sister establishment The Nobody Inn, Doddiscombsleigh (see entry), an easy drive away. Despite the inn’s proximity to Exeter, all is country quiet here; Dartmoor national park is across the River Teign. ‘We awoke to birdsong and the calling of sheep and lambs.’ (Elizabeth Thomas)
