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.

Comfort away from home
Could not fault our stay even though it was only for one night in winter.
I visited with my mother, my sister, my niece and her newborn baby son - hence we booked both rooms which are adjoining. The room was more than comfortable and every need had been thought out and catered for. The hosts Gill and Dave were both very welcoming and keen to ensure our stay was comfortable.
We stayed 4 nights.We chose somewhere near Tavistock as it enabled us to easily see other parts of Devon..We were pleasantly suprised to be upgraded free to a room with a conservatory.The room was comfortable and had a large double bed and an en suite shower/toilet.There was a kettle with tea/coffee and biscuits and fresh milk daily.Also a TV.The breakfast was excellent and plentifull.In fact after the first morning we had to ask to cut down on the amount.The eggs came from the chickens kept in the garden.The bread was freshly made and the butter was hand made locally.
Dave (who cooked the breakfast) and Gil were very good hosts and very helpful.Gil took the trouble to go on the internet to get the train times for the Tamer valley railway to Plymouth.They were also very helpful with suggestions on what to see and lovely places to eat. The views fromthe conservatory and the dining room were fantastic. We had a fantastic time.
