Appledown House Country B and B Home Page
"Nothing too much trouble, a great little find."
"Breakfast the following day was truly to die for! Lots of nice added touches like home-made bread and yoghurt and the best cooked breakfast I've had in a long time!"
Dave and Gil Martin are pleased to welcome you to Appledown House Country Bed and Breakfast, which is set in a lovely rural location in the Tamar Valley in the heart of the Devon countryside, with views to Dartmoor and just about as far away from the every day stresses and strains of your normal life as you want to be.
We have two comfortable, well-furnished, en-suite bedrooms (both twin or super king depending on your preference, both with shower). These two rooms form the detached annexe and are self-contained. Each has its own 'front door' and the two rooms have fully lockable interconnecting doors, ideal for privacy or for friends and family. We have ample, dedicated, off road parking for all our guests as well as secure bicycle storage.
The larger of the two rooms is south-facing and has ts own small conservatory with glorious views over the grounds and surrounding countryside towards Dartmoor.
The north-east paddock is home to our free-range chickens who provide you daily with wholesome fresh eggs for your breakfast. There are several inns in the surrounding area and a variety of different eating experiences are available in nearby Tavistock.
Model railway enthusiasts may like to spend some time with Dave mulling over the new layout for the 00 gauge railway housed in the old workshop.
Dartmoor is virtually on the doorstep, yet our country retreat, within the Tamar Valley, is only 3miles from the Stannary* town of Tavistock. The house and its gardens border open fields and farmland with wonderful country panoramic views towards Dartmoor and the Bere Peninsula. The City of Plymouth, and the ferry port, are just 14 miles to the South whilst the M5 motorway and the Cathedral City of Exeter, with its international airport, can easily be accessed via the A30 dual carriageway.
