About the hotel
Appledown House Country Bed and Breakfast is set in a lovely rural location in the heart of the Devon countryside, just about as far away from the every day stresses and strains of your normal life as you want to be, yet less than 10 minutes drive from Tavistock and Dartmoor. Inspected by the Dartmoor Partnership, their assessor David Farrant, said: "Appledown House is a 1st class addition to our membership and is thoroughly recommended. Rooms are comfortable, light and airy, and well-furnished''.
The two bedrooms (both en-suite with showers) form the detached ground floor annexe and can be interconnected via an adjoining door (useful for families/friends) and the superior twin/superking has its own conservatory overlooking the heated outdoor pool and fabulous views towards Dartmoor. The double room with its tiny patio garden overlooks the front of the property. Well -behaved children are most welcome. We have ample off road parking for all our guests, together with secure bicycle storage and a drying area. Our heated outdoor swimming pool (open during the summer) is set in its own terrace within the south facing grounds of just under 3 acres. The northeast paddock is home to our free-range chickens who provide you daily with wholesome fresh eggs for your breakfast. There are several inns within 0. 5m and a variety of different eating experiences are available in nearby Tavistock. Dartmoor is virtually on the doorstep, yet our country retreat is only 3. 5 miles from the Stannary town of Tavistock. The City of Plymouth, which boasts its own airport and ferry port, lies 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. Tavistock is in a uniquely central position making visits to the rest of Devon and to most of Cornwall easy e. g Eden, Heligan,Truro and St Austell, Bideford, Bude and Newquay in under an hour, Plymouth and Looe less than 30 mins.

Great place to stay!
Lovely area, really nice couple running the B & B with probably the best breakfast I've ever had - including locally-sourced sausages, egg and bacon.
Spacious room and fantastic view of the Moor (even with the mist coming down)
Appledown House Excellent
The accommodation was excellent and nothing too much trouble for the hosts.
The breakfast was superb. Fresh eggs, homemade bread, local bacon and sausages cooked to perfection. Thank you Gil and Dave.
