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 are interconnected via an adjoining door (useful for families/friends). The superior twin/superking has its own conservatory overlooking the outdoor pool and fabulous views towards Dartmoor and 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 outdoor swimming pool (open during the summer) is set in its own terrace within the south facing grounds of just under 3 acres. We make our own bread and yoghurt, source our bacon and sausages from our local butcher as well as provide Cornish butter and fresh free-range eggs for your breakfast along with fresh mushrooms and tomatoes (the latter home grown in season). 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 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, St Ives, Mevagissey, Bideford, Bude, Padstow and Newquay in an hour or less, Plymouth and Looe less than 30 mins.

The food was wonderful, from local residents.
location was wonderful, with a great view from the breakfast table. Small room, but we made do. Very friendly hosts.
Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us for one night and to hear about your busy schedule as you dash around the UK! We were sorry to hear you felt tight for space in the room you booked with us via the booking agency, however, the larger airier room with the small conservatory was available when you booked and you could have had that one with pleasure. We do hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.
With best wishes,
Gil and Dave
Small rural paradise
Being in the middle of the country, this is only accessible by car.
There are only 2 ensuite rooms, making it very quiet. Gill is available when required, but does not intrude. English breakfast plus stewed fruit, yoghurt & cereals. Big green garden with swimming pool. Fantastic view of fields on rolling hills. A short drive to Tavistock town, or Dartmoor national patk. 45 mins from Plymouth city. Overall a very pleasant stay.
