Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Bridlepath,’ cautions the sign, ‘no vehicular access.’ Press on regardless to reach Maureen Rowlatt’s Arcadian B&B in gardens and woodland on the edge of Dartmoor. Bedrooms include one in an ancient cart house and two in a former craftsman’s workshop; Laughing Waters, a cosy, New England-style cottage, has a rocking chair on the veranda, a barbecue area and steps leading to the stream. Each room is thoughtfully supplied with a trug of organic Devon cream fudge, sparkling wine and fruit. (Garden rooms also have their own log fire in winter.) On a fine day, walk along the bridleways into the Tamar valley; if the summer night turns balmy, ask about a starlight swim in the heated outdoor swimming pool. Eat in come dinnertime (each room has a well-equipped kitchenette), or follow the hostess’s recommendations of local pubs; Guide entries in Tavistock, Lewdown and Milton Abbot are easily reached. In the morning, breakfast is taken alfresco or in the conservatory: home-made muesli; a wide selection of fruit; a full English, vegetarian grill or kedgeree cooked to order. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'Maureen Rowlatt is a lovely host who made our stay a joy. On arrival we were offered tea with fresh scones. Later we shared a bottle of wine in the living oom. Our cottage was warm on arrival (each has a wood burner). The kitchenettes are well equipped. Breakfasts are magnificent: Endless supplies of hot toast, tea and coffee.
