We were blown away by the high spec accommodation, the beautiful surroundings and views, and of course, the wonderful 'hostess with the mostess' - Mary - who went out of her way to make our short stay enjoyable and memorable. Booking was a doddle ... all sorted directly with Mary, through the Gooseford Farm website. We booked a superking ensuite,...

We stayed for two nights at Gooseford and it was absolutely gorgeous. We had a lovely spacious room with bathroom and a view over the farmyard and across to Dartmoor. The welcome was really warm and we enjoyed home baking like there was no tomorrow! Would recommend to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing break in comfortable surroundings.

We stayed in this lovely B&B on a working farm for two nights. Each of the rooms are called names related to geese and ours was 'Gaggle', absolutely delightful with views of the farmyard and the moor, double shower and huge supersize bed. Every comfort was provided plus a delicious breakfast, with homemade bread and jam and the freshest eggs...

We recently stayed for a couple of nights at this lovely B & B. We had booked into the main house, but were upgraded to the cottage - wow! The cottage was beautifully appointed and we especially liked the exposed beams in the large bedroom with its large, comfortable, bed and the fact that we were greeted with home made...

As always great welcome with Christmas decorations, warm and clean. Ideal for a mid winter birthday break. Stunning view with a white frost overlying the area. Wonderful greeting from the cattle in the yard. Breakfast delicious with cheerful conversations with Mary and her daughter. Easy access to Dartmoor and their towns. Tea at the Forge in Chagford another treat. Friends...

A short overnight stay - arrived much later than planned due to traffic on M5, welcomed with open arms by Mary & enjoyed a delicious homecooked meal. Room in the farmhouse was gorgeous & a much appreciated bonus, as I'd booked a smaller room in the bungalow - very spacious, comfy bed & excellent attention to detail. After a good...

The title says it all. 4 times in a year. As usual just perfect. Won't be long before we are back. B&B on the edge of Dartmoor hard to resist. You know it makes sense. Great breakfasts and comfy rooms. What more could you want. Oh and there's Dartmoor as well if you can tear yourself away
