Certificate of Excellence
The Who'd Have Thought It Inn in Milton Combe near Yelverton, is a cosy Devon Free-hold pub within Dartmoor National Park with 2 Bed and Breakfast rooms REFURBISHED in February 2018. We take great pride in serving fresh seasonal food, regularly changing real ales and quaffable wines in a picture post card setting, a stones throw from the National Trusts Buckland Abbey. We welcome dogs and offer the perfect place to relax in the garden to the sound of the babbling brook or warm your cockles by the log fires in the colder months. Ensuring you have a good night's sleep is our priority in our B&B rooms and we have invested in comfortable mattresses, cozy duvets and the finest crisp white 400 thread count Egyptian cotton bed linen. We have one 6ft Super King size bed and one 5ft King Size bed, both rooms are ensuite, have tea and coffee making facilities, complimentary toiletries, hairdyers and free wifi.
