A B&B with a difference

Make sure you can map read to find your way to the farm, and experience a B&B with a difference. Welcomed by Jess, the collie, and with an informal approach to welcoming guests, this is not your usual B&B. But you are well feed and become part of the household for you stay. Read more

Response

It was great to meet someone who can map read like myself but as long as you don't use your sat nav ,we are not difficult to find if you use the directions on our website. It was a pleasure having you stay in our home, we like to see our guests enjoying there surroundings.. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

The BEST customer service & hospitality

Stayed near to South Brent for a wedding. The farm is conveniently located just off the main A38 but is nestled in a little valley with lovely views from the from the front of the house. The driveway to the farm is rugged. Your stay comes with free entertainment via Donna's husband who is a real character! If breakfast was anything to go by I would expect the optional evening meal would be very good. Read more

Response

Thank you for your review. So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay here with the added entertainment. David is a real character... ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ... He was tickled when he read your review... He's been called at worse. He nearly had himself a new suit . He was quite upset your suit didn't fit........ Alison left her glasses behind they fitted.. I take great care in making sure my guests are looked after to my best ability. Kind regards Donna and Dave.

Donna is lovely & could not do enough to ensure we had everything we needed, even dropping us off & collecting us from the wedding as it was very local. Breakfast was superb.

Good country break

Bridge House was a good base for visiting our relatives nearby, but would also be a good location for a country holiday. Access is via a very narrow single track road, so care was required,with our hire car, but all was well.The accommodation was very comfortable, and was all on the ground floor, which suited the older guest. The hosts were warm, welcoming and helpful. We liked the dog too ! Read more

We are very glad we were able to accommodate you and your mum on the level, we know it is difficult to find accommodation without steps/stairs. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in our home on the farm.

A really welcoming and comfortable stay

We stayed overnight on the way to a week's holiday in Salcombe. We were welcomed when we arrived with tea and delicious scones and cream. Our hosts could not have been friendlier. They gave us all the information we needed on the area. Then we all watched TV together when we came back. There were even beers on offer! Our room was very comfortable and clean. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to stay in the area. Just don't be put off by trying to find it as it is down a long winding lane. Read more

The most generous and accommodating of hosts.

Quiet, off the beaten track, friendly owners who drove me into the village each morning. Very accommodating about meal times. Traffic from the A38 could be heard when the wind was in a certain direction, but with the window closed this could not be heard anyway. Appealing array of 'characters' to make it all a bit different from the usual run of b and bs: the horse, the bull, Larry the lamb and Jess the collie. Read more

Thank you for your review. We enjoyed having you stay with us. We are always very willing to make our guests stay a welcoming and pleasurable experience.

I hope your guest from overseas had a great British welcome at Bridge House Farm, and of course yourselves. We were worried we would have to search her suitcase incase she was hiding Jess.

We arrived to the warmest of welcomes with a Devon cream tea. Throughout our stay we enjoyed a definitely full English breakfast and generous evening meals. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was excellent with lashings of hot water and a large separate lounge is available at all times for guests. Donna and Dave made our stay so memorable with their generosity of spirit - a real tonic. Read more

Thank you kindly for your letter and most of all your blessing. David and I were quite touched by this. We appreciate ideas and suggestions to improve our home.

Unexpected gem, a real home from home

We stayed one night only en route to Cornwall for a wedding. Arriving at 9pm we were welcomed by Donna (and Jess the Border Collie) with a cream tea (with excellent home made scones, made by our host). We were immediately made to feel at home and were treated more like friends than paying guests. Good breakfast at the time of our choosing. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to leave such an honest review which we always appreciate, unfortunately the wet weather is not the best time to appreciate our home. It's always nice for us when our guests and us feel like friends from the start. It was a shame it was only one night, hopefully you will return so we can enjoy your company again. Hope your wedding went well and you had a safe journey home. Wish your sons a great future in their chosen careers from all at Bridge House Farm. :D

A lovely surprise to be made so welcome by a lovely, generous hearted couple!

We only stopped overnight and, as the Farm is a bit off the beaten track, we decided to take up the offer of an evening meal rather than go out again after check-in.
We had a lovely meal cooked fresh with some great beer and cider to wash it down. The room was en suite. Breakfast was fit for a king and was cooked freshly too. All served in the comfort of their big country kitchen.
When we left, we were given freshly baked scones and a pot of clotted cream 'to see us through the day'. Read more

We booked for a quick overnight stay en route to a wedding yet left feeling we'd had a mini holiday. We arrived to see a newborn calf trying to stand up, and immediately felt welcomed and at ease. The kitchen is beautiful and our room exceeded our expectations, clean, roomy and stylish. Very hospitable hosts and breakfast was filling and delicious, and our only regret was that we couldn't stay for longer. Read more

One of the family!

Welcome by a scrumptious Devon tea - scones made by Donna! Really made to feel at home from the start. Although a very busy couple on a working farm, nothing was too much trouble for Donna & Dave, even coming to my rescue after I had an accident in my car, allowing me to stay an extra night & looking after some of my belongings until I can go back to collect them & my car after repair. The home-cooked food was great - just a bit too much at times. Loved their friendly dog, Jess.

For a wonderful lady nothing is too much trouble and we hope your stay in England wasn't to distressing by your accident. Look forward to hearing from you, so we can do all we can to help.

Bridge House offers 2 ensuite rooms available for double, twin and single occupancy. 1 single room with private shower/toilet. Evening meals are available by prior arrangement. Evening meal £7.00 each. Ideally situated to enjoy all that beautiful Dartmoor has to offer. Dartmoor National Park covers an area of 368 square miles - the largest and wildest area of open country in southern England. Throughout the year Dartmoor is an exceptionally beautiful place to visit, with deep wooded gorges, beautiful lake-like reservoirs and tumbling rocky rivers. You'll love the farmers markets full of quality local produce and be inspired by the richness of Dartmoor's heritage, wildlife and legends. With many activities on offer including walking, fishing and horse riding, you can effortlessly ease into Dartmoor's delights and create pleasant memories of your stay. We are situated in a valley where more often than not we enjoy views of foxes,deer and a whole host of wild birds and of course our farm animals from the farmhouse and outside sitting area. Not forgetting Donna's homemade cakes and scones and David's unlimited tea and coffee and games from our collie dog (Jess). You will enjoy your stay with us. Very sorry NO PETS or CHILDREN.
