About the hotel
A warm welcome will always await you at the Old Vicarage Bed and Breakfast in Kenton, near Exeter. The house, built in 1812, is a fine regency rectory in the heart of the friendly Devon village of Kenton, which boasts not only a fine local pub but two marvellous restaurants and is the location of Powderham Castle, the seat of the Earl of Devon. Stay with us and you will be in striking distance of the fine old city of Exeter, the birdlife of the Exe Estuary and the picturesque coastal resorts of Dawlish and Teignmouth - all reachable by regular buses.
A short drive and you may sample the wild spaces of Dartmoor or the charming towns of Totnes, Dartington and Dartmouth. The house is set in its own grounds, in which there is ample parking space. As we offer only two rooms for bed and breakfast, you can expect individual service and a quiet stay: not the boarding house experience! The Amethyst Room has a king bed, the Camomile Room can be either king or twin. Each room has a flat screen TV with FreeView, free Wi-Fi wireless internet, a hair dryer, and a hospitality tray with tea, coffee and biscuits. Both rooms have en-suite shower rooms with washbasin and WC. Complementary shampoo, soap and shower gel are provided. Breakfast starts with a buffet of fruit juice, cereal, fruit compote and yoghurt, followed by a full English or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, or something on toast. Our rooms are £85 per night for two people, or £65 per night single occupancy. Breakfast is included. Normal arrival time is between 4. 00pm and 5. 30pm. If you are going to arrive outside of those hours, it will not normally be a problem, but please let us know by phone or email to make sure we will be here to greet you. For returning guests, we offer on arrival a complimentary traditional Devon cream tea as a loyalty thank you. We ask you to vacate your room at 10 am on your final morning. The full address is The Old Vicarage, Torrington Place, Kenton EX6 8NF. Tel: 01626 891406.

A little tucked-away gem
For a special treat this did the job perfectly.
A great place to stay
Very friendly, helpful and considerate host.
Elegant house, beautifully decorated and furnished. Comfortable and warm room. One feels generously treated. A very convenient place to stay, a short bus ride from Exeter and not far from Dartmoor and the South Hams. All small village amenities with a minute or two's walk.
