Have just returned from The Old Inn after 4 nights of amazing hospitality. My review of May 2012 holds firm and cannot be added to. Thank you Anthea and Duncan - just the best place to spend our 42nd wedding anniversary. Cuddles to the dogs.

We were in Room 5 which is a lovely room with views over the pretty village and the surrounding courtside. In the afternoon we visited Castle Drago and the pretty town of Chagford. We were...

We wish we could have stayed more than the one night we did. We went on beautiful walks one of them from the doorstep and loved having a cosy welcoming Inn and delicious food to come back to. It's so easy to warm to Anthea and Duncan and their two dogs, Teign and Tyne. We still have the gorgeous scenery...

We stayed one night at The Old Inn at the end of June and had a fantastic experience. We received a friendly welcome on arrival from humans and dogs alike and shown to the room which was clean and comfortable if not spectacular. What was spectacular though was the dinner which was worthy of a michelin star as other reviewers...

Visited again to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was exceptional and the service from Anthea was more than one would expect. The rooms are very very nice and we had such a good time. It deserves a michelin star.

We enjoyed yet another dinner, bed and breakfast at The Old Inn, Drewsteignton. We were welcomed by the hostess, Anthea and two dogs, Tyne and Teign and arrived to see the small village bathed in early evening sunshine. The village is very pretty with the church at one end, a quaint pub, post office and The Inn and some beautiful...

We'd heard good things about the restaurant at the Old Inn and we weren't disappointed. The welcome is warm and includes being greeted by the two dogs, Tyne and Teign. Socks the Cat ignored us but retained his place on one of the settees. This first room doubles as a bar and has comfy sofas and chairs. There are two...
