Nice stay with very warm hosts

Last week we stayed in your accommodation with our French friends. You made us feel very welcome and although we could only stay one night we did have a very nice time.

Thanks. Andy, Eileen, Eric et Guillaine

‘room at the inn’

Normally a bit to close to Christmas but there was ‘room at the inn’ for us on the 23 rd December for a stay with my wife and daughter with two rooms. Another delightful welcome from Amanda and Michael and well, well looked after. Rooms were really comfortable again and we will be returning as we revisit Tavistock.


The hosts were exceptional

The hosts were exceptional- totally accommodating, warm and friendly & nothing was too much trouble. Amanda’s little touches around the hotel were just wonderful & we felt completely welcomed into their home. The room was beautifully clean & the bed was huge and totally comfortable- we slept brilliantly. The location was beautiful— in a quiet country lane & all we could hear from our room was beautiful birdsong. The breakfast was outstanding- probably the best we’ve ever had. The range and choice of food was fantastic, Amanda’s cooking was to perfection (whilst Mike was the perfect host & made sure everyone had everything they could possibly want, plus keeping the room entertained!!) and the cooked breakfast was beautifully hot. As much as you could eat & endless supplies of tea, coffee & toast!

Nothing was too much trouble

Our best stay on Dartmoor!! Couldn’t fault anything, room 1 is superb, all our meals were delicious and the hotel is just great, we enjoyed chatting to Michael in the bar over a couple of gins and had lots of laughs . As it was my birthday Amanda organised, champagne and flowers at my husband’s request, nothing was too much trouble, would highly recommend it to everyone and all within easy reach of Tavistock and the moor , thank you we will return.


Everything was fantastic

Our stay on the third of November. Everything was fantastic really enjoyed it best wishes Shirley and Steve.


A well-deserved 5/5 rating

This was our second visit to Harrabeer and once again we had a lovely time. Little touches such as the savoury muffins to sustain us during our long walks, and the welcome cup of tea and scone on our return, made the experience extra special.
The only minor issue we experienced was that the hot/ cold mix in the shower in our room wasn’t quite working correctly, which meant that the water temperature was not quite as hot as it should be – but it was still bearable. When we mentioned this we did say that it wasn’t urgent (as we had already used the shower), and we know that Mike and Amanda are very attentive to fixing problems quickly, so we’re sure it will be fixed in time for the next guest. We understand that these things happen in older buildings, and it didn’t spoil our stay in any way. A well-deserved 5/5 rating and Thank You from us.

Breakfast was fabulous

Our room was the smallest but was absolutely fine. The bed was comfortable with good quality linen and there were plenty of towels. Breakfast was fabulous too but the best thing of all were Amanda and Michael. We are already planning our next stay.

The most warm and welcoming B&B

On our road trip through the UK this was by far the most warm and welcoming B&B! Amanda is a superb cook (also for vegetarians) and Michael an excellent host. You could feel the love they put in their B&B, it really feels like home! We had a great time, also with other guests in their cosy bar. The room we booked for two nights was also cosy and really spotless. It looks like we were not the only ones who had muffins to go 😉 We would definitely recommend this B&B! Thanks for the lovely time, Amanda and Michael

A wonderful little country hotel

A wonderful little country hotel. Amanda and Michael made us feel so welcome. Nothing not to like, would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

The warmest and most wonderful welcome

The warmest and most wonderful welcome one could experience when arriving in England.
We had crossed the Channel on a ferry and arrived to late for dinner at the Country House, but immediately Michael told us not to worry, and Amanda offered to drive us to a charming pub that was still open and to pick us up later, as they both were sure we would get lost. We tried to refuse, and rely on our GPS. But luckily she insisted, as certainly the GPS would never have found its way.
After a wonderful night in a sweet and comfortable room we were welcomed to an elegant breakfast and sent on our way with muffins, water and warm wishes for a safe trip to Scotland.
We were not leaving a small hotel, but a lovely home and delightful family.

Brilliant place to stay

Brilliant place to stay. Absolutely lovely, small hotel close to Dartmoor and Plymouth. Our 16th visit since 2003. Wonderful hosts, Amanda and Michael. They couldn’t do anymore to make your stay more perfect. Wouldn’t stay anywhere else in the area.

Totally unique experience

We were reluctant to leave

Thank you, Amanda and Michael for our very enjoyable stay with you (June 2018). You made us most welcome, our room and bathroom were pleasant and clean and our bed very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed your breakfasts and the whole ambience of your lovely home. We were reluctant to leave and would most certainly like to visit you again. We have no hesitation in recommending you to our family and friends.
