We drove from London to Devon to attend a wedding over the weekend. The owners were welcoming, shared local knowledge and the room was lovely. Our 4 and 6 year old loved the large grounds with football nets and a swing. The owner's children were lovely and played with our delighted little ones. They were excited about their stay for days afterwards. Read more

My wife and I and our three friends stayed at Gages Mill for two nights, after a wonderful but strenuous cycling tour of Cornwall. We only had one full day in the area but would've dearly liked to have more. GMCGH was (for us) a perfect composite of B&B and small hotel. It's very comfortable and the history of the building and grounds adds to the experience. Nathan & Kate are great folks and were extremely helpful in advising us on walks on the moor. Read more
Friendly from the first meeting.lovley country setting, the birds and animals early morning.

We stayed for 3 nights at Gages Mill and found it to be very well located being on the edge of Dartmoor and at the same time not too far from the coast.

A warm friendly welcome from the moment we stepped out of our car. We had booked a 2 night stay to attend a niece's wedding nearby and could not have chosen a more perfect place. Comfortable, clean, excellent food and nothing too much trouble. Home from home in a beautiful setting. Absolutely loved our stay here. Read more
Just what the Doctor ordered as I am recovering from serious illness and needed a few days to chill out as I feel now fighting fit. Indeed this is exactly what we got. Despite being close to the A38 we heard no traffic noise from within Cages Mill. Kate & Nathan were very attentive and made us most welcome on our 2 motorcycles and offered to garage them if we had needed to which was much appreciated.
The gravelly parking area is not ideal for 2-wheeled transport due to tight turn in/out. Read more

The journey to reach the guest house was fraught but as soon as my car drew up, Kate was there to greet me and out me at my ease.
Tea and coffee provision in the room was generous and surely must have provided for all likes / tastes. I was offered fresh milk in case I don't like the small carton type of milk. Giving my choice of breakfast the night before seemed to make breakfast time a smoothly provisioned meal; minimum fuss and very generous portions. Read more

Comfortable accommodation Read more
Hello Barbara. Many thanks for taking the time to write this review. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We hear what you say about the TV's in rooms - it's something that we have thought about but our experience is that the majority of our guests like the fact that the rooms do not have televisions and we feel that to add televisions would overall detract from the ambiance / character of Gages Mill. It would be nice to see you again sometime. Kindest regards Nathan & Kate.
Extremely pleasant and relaxing. Excellent breakfasts. Read more

Hi Michelle, it's really kind of you to write such a lovely review - it was a pleasure having you stay with us and we hope to see you again sometime.

Kindest regards Kate and Nathan.

Hi Stanley - many thanks for taking the time to post this review. Kate and I are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We have noted your suggestion about times for breakfast - it's very difficult to set a time that suites everybody perfectly- over the years we have found that our current times suit most people the best allowing for both those who want an early start and those who may wish to take breakfast over an extened period. Kindest regards, Nathan and Kate.

Hi Karl - thanks for taking the time to write this lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We're making more of an effort to mention the bar to new arrivals - we've always been conscious of not wanting to overwhelm people with information, details of the honour bar system are in the guest book in all bedrooms - along with details of local taxi services and places to eat etc. Thanks for the feedback and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. Kate, Nathan, Chloe & Max.

Our party of five experienced a delightful stay. Kate & Nathan know how to make you feel very welcome. Beautiful settings, old white cosy building surrounded by a nice garden full of birds.

Hi James - many thanks for taking the time to write this review - very much appreciated. It was nice to meet you both. You're right, due to the thick stone walls it is difficult to get the wi-fi signal everywhere - with boosters we have coverage in the guest bedrooms and the guest lounge - the dining room isn't so good. For the benefit of readers our Wi Fi is around 2mbps - due to the rural location - it's good for e-mail but it's not so good for watching internet TV etc. Kindest regards K & N.
Only a one night stay, but very comfortable and affordable. Very welcoming and would definitely recommend. Bed and facilities all good quality and breakfast cooked to order, very fresh and local produce. Read more

Stayed at Gages Mill for four nights to visit friends in Ashburton.

Beautiful view from room, stunning location, beautiful Mill, delicious breakfast, warm, friendly, and relaxed. Wake up to the sounds of the Read more
Hi Alan and David - many thanks for taking the time to leave this lovely feedback. We have seen you since you left this - I'm afraid during July and August it all gets rather busy and guest reviews, much as we do appreciate them, don't always get responded to as quickly as we would like.

Hi Chris, thanks for taking the time to write this review. We're glad your enjoyed your stay and that you would recommend us to friends. We accept your point about the bath and shower. Your room, the twin room on the ground floor, occupies the space where there was once an under-slung water wheel. The shower in this room does have lower headroom. All other rooms on the first floor have normal height ceilings in rooms and showers. Rooms will be freshly decorated for opening on 1st March 2013.
We stayed for one night on route from a wedding. We chose this place as we wanted to visit Ashburton. Read more

Hi Matthew. Thanks for taking the time to write this review, we are both pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Reference the minor issue noted - as Gages Mill is a Grade 2 Listed building we were unable, when we replaced all of the bathrooms in 2010 and 2011, to do away with the saniflow units in three of the en-suite bathrooms. We replaced each unit with the best available on the market and, accordingly, they one run for one or two seconds per flush. We agree, it would be nice not to need them.
Kate and Nathan are very nice and helful hosts.

Made to feel very welcome by the owners, our room was clean, warm and tastefully decorated, a lovely dinning area and excellent breakfasts (score 11 out of 10) that good. Unfortunately, the purpose of our visit to Devon on this occasion was to attend a family funeral, but will make the effort to return under happier circumstances and will most certainly choose to stay at Gages Mill again, the surrounding gardens must be lovely in the summer months.

The gardens are indeed now (31st May 2012) starting to bloom - it's hard to keep up with them in fact! Kindest regards Kate and Nathan.

Dear Ann, both Nathan & I are genuinly saddened that you were not delighted by your stay with us in Gages Mill. We can only reply with 500 characters so bullet points I'm afraid. We market as having 'double' beds and not 'king size'. We had two guests with mobilty problems when you stayed; one had a recent knee operation and the other left this review - '5 out of 5 - Gages is a lovely peaceful place to stay. I have stayed there 5 times and it just gets better each time'. There are 2 staircases.
Unfortunately we stay there only for one night. It is so lovely place. We hop to return there in the future Read more
Dear Andrea - really kind of you to leave this review for us. It was a pleasure to have met you and your family and we are delighted that you had a nice time at Gages Mill - would be great to see you again.
The best night's sleep in ages Read more
Dear Vanessa - many thanks for leaving this review of your stay. It was really nice to have met you and we're delighted that you had a great nights sleep with us. It would be great to see you back again. We hear what you say about the shower - on the plus side the water at Gages Mill comes from a well on the site (with appropriate UV treatment and filtration plant of course) and whilst it tastes great we do accept that it means that the showers are not as powerful as many modern power showers.
once I had found the cottage, i was dismayed to discover that there wasn't a tv in the room or a bath that I could use. The family were lovely but I felt it was more their home than a guest house and I did feel rather uncomfortable about this. Read more
Hi Angela, thanks for providing this feedback. Though all rooms do have en-suite showers, only two have baths. Both rooms with baths were available when you stayed; had you raised this concern we would happily have swapped rooms. Gages Mill is, indeed, our home, we love it and we enjoy sharing it with our guests - this suits most visitors very well, feedback frequently referrs to a 'home from home' experience. We fully appreciate that everybody is different and respect what you have said.
I was welcomed by name as I walked down the drive.Had a friendly discussion about all things wordly and felt very at home.I was shown round and when I asked about place sto eat was given a detailed list of nice places to go. Read more
Dear Phil - really kind of you to leave us such a great review - we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Gages Mill. If you find yourself in the area again it would be great to see you back. Home from home is our aim, we're delighted you felt that way. Kindest regards Kate.

Dear Flavio, many thanks for taking the time to leave us such a positive review. It was a pleasure to have you stay in Gages Mill (and we remain impressed by the 12 hour plus days you were putting in at work, you ate, slept and worked!).
