Great Read more
Visiting my father with my son (25yrs), both of us from Sydney, Australia, this is an accessible location for both visiting my relatives and touring nearby countryside sites. Jenny Peel was a wonderful host, making sure we were comfortable and well fed for breakfast. The property is full of character, and in lovely garden surroundings. Also a few minutes walk to the village pubs, and a small village shop which stocks the essentials.
Perfect for our needs. Read more
Thanks Janet. Lovely to see you both again.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we loved every minute of our stay.
We were really made to feel at home and the Victoria Sponge on arrival in our room, was a real nice touch.
Our room(Plum) had wonderful views of the countryside and the local church.
The short walk to the Village with its two pubs,post office,Butchers and shop(that's all there is in the village but good enough) was also a real plus. Read more

A Pleasure. Hope to see you again in the future.
My family stayed in the Old Parsonage for my wedding. I stayed here for the two nights before my wedding and it was absolutely perfect. The rooms are beautiful and cosy and we all loved them. Jennie went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful, from providing extra facilities for the children, to baking us a cake on our arrival. We can't rate it highly enough - we will definitely all be coming back, we are in love with the Old Parsonage! Read more

We were greeted by the owner Jenny. She took us to our room and told us the routine for milk and breakfast etc. The room was full of character. The house dates back to 1600s I understand. The decor was really in keeping with the building. Lovely bathroom with piping hot water. Loads of sockets and lights for all areas of room. Yea and coffee facilities. Bed comfortable and there was an oil filled radiator in the room to use if you needed to get more cosy. Read more

Lovely to meet you both and hope to see you again.
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! Read more

Thank you Pam. I look forward to seeing you each time.
Only stayed the one night, ahead of a business meeting the next day. Host was very welcoming and accommodation was homely and comfortable, particularly the bathroom and bath. Nice touch to have home-made cake and fresh milk for coffee. My room overlooked the church and churchyard, not a problem the residents being quite quiet during the night! Set in large gardens, the Old Parsonage is in a lovely and peaceful location and I would likely come again... Read more

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
Restful country retreat Read more
booked online 10 minutes before we arrived. The owner wasnt aware of that booking but it was not a problem, she showed us to the room and immediately got towels for 2 etc. The location is simply amazing. breakfast was the best of the week (we have been travelling around seeing clients on business and finding independent places to stay on route). The rooms are in keeping with the period and the village fascinating. Read more

We stayed just one night but wish it could have been more. The Old Parsonage is a wonderful, meandering thatched house.

We slept very well and woke to a wonderful cooked breakfast and the charming company of Cobweb ,the cat! Read more

Comfortable room. We ate in the village pub (excellent meal) and had our own gate from the parsonage into the churchyard which came out in the middle of the village. Friendly owner who produced a wonderful breakfast. Church clock behind house chimed through night, but did not disturb us. Read more
Owner had been called away on 'an emergency' but left good instructions for entry. All was as agreed and the night passed well, even though some rather loud noise, possibly a water pump, boomed occasionally. Read more

This was a short break planned at short notice but everything about it was just perfect. The hotel was ideal and in such a lovely village setting. The breakfasts were fantastic and served on one large communal table so that there was good conversation with the other guests. The proprietor, Jenny, was warm, friendly and attentive to the needs of everyone. Read more
Thank you so much. I look forward to seeing you both again.
We stayed at the Old Parsonage in Winkleigh, as friends of ours were getting married in Chulmleigh nearby. We arrived on the friday evening and were picked up from the station by Dennis, the only local taxi in Winkleigh. Jenny who runs the B&B advised me to book and had even offered to pick us up at one point when looked as though we were stuck. Jenny was very helpful all the way through our stay. Read more
How could I forget' Those bad boys of Chulmleigh' as Dennis called you. You were great guests and i would love to see you all again, including the Gilrs? as you put in your note! I knew plonker was a good name for you!!

We now live in Australia so as you can imagine staying in a thatched hotel 500 years old is just magical. This place is one of the best value hotels my wife and have ever stayed in.

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. Check-In time: 16:00 and Check-Out time: 10:00.
