Can't fault it!

Living in Crediton (not too far from the Old Parsonage in Winkleigh), we would not have usually gone for a night away so close to home, but are so glad we did! Winkleigh is a very pretty village with a nice pub and useful shop, and it boasts great views of Dartmoor. The Old Parsonage itself is a beautiful old house with plenty of original features - all set in wonderful gardens. The room was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated.. We fell in love with it!

How Kind, thank you so much. It was lovely to meet you both. You are welcome to wander in at any time.

Perfect for anyone who likes old character houses and antiques.

My wife and I stayed for one night when visiting Okehampton and Winkleigh to see our granddaughter performing in a Pony Club tetrathlon on Saturday and Sunday. Rather than return home for the Saturday night we decided that it would be easier to stay locally. The Old Parsonage was one of the best B&Bs we have stayed at and there is also a Pub with excellent food just a short walk away through the churchyard. Read more

Mentioned as a property in the Doomsday Book. We know it was owned by the Deanery of Exeter until 1906 when it was purchased by the Johnson family who lived here until the 1970s. Both father and son were the local squires of Winkleigh, owning a lot of other property and land. Groom Cottage once, as the name implies, was that thatched cottage that housed the coach and the coachmen/groom and the thatched barn housed two ponies. The back of the house (all thatched) has a 'hidden courtyard' and the now bed and breakfast rooms were once the gardener's cottage. The garden is at its best during April/May when the Azaleas and Rhododendrons are in bloom. Please Note: We are a No-Smoking property. Regrettably, we cannot accept pets.
