The kindest thing I could say about the Cookshayes was that the breakfast was OK . I agree with the other reviews the rooms were well below the standard for this category of B&B. wi fi was available but could not get connected and owner could not help. One small plus point they did offer a washing facility .

Room was neat and clean. Location was easily found from directions provided. Breakfast was very good. Parking good. Only spent the night but was satisfied. I would use this facility again. Excellent place to stop for the night

Stayed at Cookshayes recently for a few days. Found the establishment to be a decent find, especially since we were allowed to bring our dog along. The decor was somewhat dated but the room was spacious and the location ideal for access to Dartmoor. Overall i'd go back again

We stayed at this b&b for two nights in August 2012. Yes, it is dated but if you can look past this then you will enjoy your time in this amazing National Park. For the money we paid we cannot complain. Its location is great, just a few miles down the road you enter the park. It's 2 mintues walk...

The photo on the web site looks pleasant. But beware, close up the place looks past it's best, and in need of some major tlc - externally. Internally we managed to get in the entrance hall before disappointment overcame us. As for the bedroom, it smelt musty, dusty and damp. Decor was old and bland. The toilet/bathroom was, strangely, next...

Just spent a really pleasant couple of days with Barry & Team on the edge of the moor. Thoroughly welcoming people and delightful surroundings. Decor is not snazzy and up to date but if we wanted boutique would have gone to Bath or London. Food generous and top notch homemade fare. Relaxed and just like home from home.

I stayed at Cookshayes for 3 nights. The surroundings are beautiful - a lovely garden but I couldn't take advantage as the weather was poor! When you first enter - seems a little dowdy - but get past this, and you've found treasure! Breakfast is delicious, with whatever combination of English you like (you must try the sausages!) , plus...

Just returned from Cookshayes after attending a wedding nearby. On first glance at the property I realised that this was going to be a very basic B&B. The hotel is in dire need of renovating, the decor is shabby and unwelcoming. Our room was located on the ground floor and could have been beautiful, however the double bed was in...
