I came to this site as a base to look for somewhere to live near Okehampton and stayed for three nights. Originally I only booked for one night but after explaining I needed two more on the next morning I was booked in. Nothing seems to much trouble for the campers here, the shop stocks basic supplies but stocks the...

Stayed here overnight after booking just that afternoon. Found it easily, and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. Had a brilliant breakfast and some good conversation, locals always know the best places to go! The farm itself is beautiful, the rooms are elegant and offer you the full experience of being in a old manor farm, with the sloping...

I booked really late at the hotel, so late it was past the shut of point but upon arrival i was still greeted and accommodated. I was even offered a sandwich although it was fairly late and all the guests in bed. I choose the farm to have a different experience then Premier Inn. I did feel like i had...

Downtown farm was in a lovely location and nice B&B with the added bonus of animal attractions on site! The rules around taking your shoes (commented on in other reviews) when you go into the B&B seem entirely appropriate for me as though the yard is clean, it is a farm with animals which I wouldn't want on my carpet...

What a lovley welcome we had from Ellie,on arrival. We were delighted with our big en-suite bedroom, so clean and airy. Breakfast was made special with the farms own sausages and free range eggs and honey.Being able to walk around the farm and spend time with the animals was great. The whole experience was relaxing and thanks to Ellie giving...

We stayed in November 2014 for 5 nights, my impression of this bed and breakfast are mixed. On the plus side accommodation is clean and comfortable but dated. Our room was with an en-suite, this facility appeared to have been added but not to a high standard, this maybe due to the age of the property and difficulties in locating...

These reviews don't sound like where we stayed. Overbearing hostess, not picturesque at all, and very poor bed. Sorry sausages not worth a comment. We have lived on a farm and were expecting a restful and quite experience, unfortunately not so.

Ideally located for touring the area including the Gorge and Dartmoor, Downtown farm has a lot to recommend it, my room was clean, well-furnished, and comfortable, apart from the odd quack, squeal or moo it is very peaceful. Breakfast was excellent and if you dine at the Dartmoor inn and Ellie makes the booking, you get a 10% discount. It...

Ideally located for walking on Dartmoor or cycling about the area. The short farm lane is just a few hundred meters off the A386. It is a working farm so in the morning you may be aware of animal noises, but there is no traffic noise overnight, nor are there any street lights, so you should get a good night's...

We arrived after a long journey to a very warm welcome from Ellie. The farm is in a glorious position not far from Lydford Gorge and many fabulous sites.. The farmhouse was welcoming and our room was a true home from home and very comfortable. Ellie was extremely knowledgeable of the local area and with her help we found a...

“You can have double or twin bedded room, wardrobe space is limited but as we tend to leave clothes in cases this wasn't a problem. There is also a couple of self catering converted barns accomodations on the farm”
