We went to a family wedding in Kingsbridge and the reception was at the Dartmouth Golf club. This B & B was really convenient. Beautiful location. Lovely pub across the road (Kings Head). Friendly staff. Great food and good beer. Ingrid who owns the B&B is so thoughtful and catered for our every need. Two of us are gluten free so she had taken the trouble to make gluten free cakes and have gluten free snacks in our room and also there were lots of gluten free options for breakfast. Fab breakfast both days. You won't find a better B&B. Perfect for coastal path walkers.
Strete is a very small village on the coast just outside Dartmouth with a shop, post office, and very good pub.
We stayed in the self-contained barn, which is a very comfortable & spotlessly clean building at the end of the pretty garden. It provides total privacy, plus a living area and fully-equipped kitchenette, and a sunny outdoor terrace at first floor level. The sheltered garden is also a suntrap.
Breakfast, taken in the main house just down the path, is of a particularly high standard, using local bacon, sausages etc. Other options, such as kippers, eggs + smoked salmon, were available.There is a choice of cereals & yoghurts and a selection of delicious preserves, artisan breads etc. Ingrid goes to a great deal of trouble to get everything just right. Everything was cooked to perfection every day, including scrambled & poached eggs (so often overcooked).
We really enjoyed our stay, and Ingrid is an extremely friendly & helpful hostess. She is very willing to share her extensive local knowledge, and her suggested routes of travel, tips on the best places to park, and pub/restaurant recommendations all proved invaluable in helping us get the most of each day of our stay. Another plus is the lovely pub, serving excellent food, right opposite.
There is a great deal to see and enjoy in the South Hams area of Devon and Roxburgh House, just a few minutes' drive from the centre of Dartmouth, is a great base for exploring.
What a fantastic place to stay. Felt so well looked after. Ingrid did a fantastic job of looking after all of us, even the dog. Well worth visiting and we would all go again. Pubs and restaurants in the area were lovely too!
We stayed for 2 nights in this lovely little B and B when visiting the area and also ate in the pub (The Kings Arms) opposite - see the seperate review.
There is a choice between a double room in the main house or the barn conversion type accommodation behind - this was our choice and would definitely pay the little extra for it. This conversion has two large single beds rather than the double but we didn't find this a problem - they were prepared pushed together for us - they were big enough to snuggle on to one though!! There is a huge variety at breakfast with a warm welcome from the lady who runs it. She is a lovely lady with a huge knowledge of the area and what goes on in and around it. Can't wait for our next visit and would definitely stay here again.
This was our second stay with Ingrid at Roxburgh House. Once again had a great time, lovely breakfasts, very comfortable accommodation in The Barn (with own living room, kitchenette and separate entrance) and Ingrid a fantastic hostess as always! We intend to return again next year.
