Holdstrong was in an excellent location for exploring and just minutes away from lydford gorge. We received a warm welcome and a friendly tour of the house. I thoroughly recommend Angelina's sponge cake which we had with a pot of tea sitting in a very comfortable lounge. Angelina was a very interesting host and had decorated the rooms with some wonderful tapestry and needlework. The breakfast was extremely good and the whole dining experience would be very romantic for a couple.
The drive down to the house may be tricky in wet weather
Holdstrong Farmhouse is the kind of place found all too seldom: a beautiful situation, but only a few minutes' drive from the main road; a large, comfortable room; a friendly and welcoming owner; a good pub in the nearby village. Traditional B&B at its best!
A place to escape to the country, yet be close to where we wanted to visit, with a lovely host and sweet puppy who was friendly but not intrusive. Yummy home cooked breakfast, a sitting room to use if needed.
So sorry we had to leave early! Being used to busy town surroundings it was a pleasure and complete feeling of relaxation being in this lovely b+b. It was so quiet! Lovely welcome from the owner, very comfy bed, nice hot breakfast.
Sitting with others at the breakfast table, would have preferred separate tables but lovely setup.
Delightful and accommodating host. Beautiful location
Difficult to find. Nearest 24hr cashpoint 10+ miles away (do not accept card payments). Shared bathroom.
Stayed here for two nights whilst at a friends wedding, the room was lovely - big, comfy bed, the breakfast excellent and very welcoming. Lots of local pubs nearby and perfect location for country walks and visiting the local towns.
Lovely surroundings and good natured welcoming
The hospitality of the owner is first class, nothing is too much trouble, and the house is a delight to stay in. Our room was huge and had the most amazing views out of 3 windows across the garden and into the distant beautiful countryside. Very close to Lydford Gorge which is a must see. We had gone for 2 nights to be in the area of for a wedding and wish we could have stayed longer.
Beautiful place, peaceful environment, wonderful welcome and lovely food!
Lovely owner,large bedroom in a nice old farmhouse b&b.
The English breakfast was a surprise every morning.
We loved the location and the character of the property. It's situated in the middle of paradise. You pass through stunning views to reach the place. Although you may have problem finding it, it's worth getting lost for it. We had a lovely time there. Angelina is very friendly and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable and it was so peaceful and tranquil there. The breakfast was delicious.
We preferred if we had coffee making facilities in our room rather than having to make the coffee in the breakfast room and carrying it over to our room. Also the coffee was poor quality. Also there was no shower gel/bath gel products; only a shampoo and conditioner was provided. Apart from these the place is lovely and full of character. We loved it and will go there again.
Quiet, quaint and comfortable. We have no complaints about this B&B, the room was large and quiet and the breakfast was large and varied. The host was very welcoming and obliging. The food the local pub 2 miles away was very good.
Lovely setting, all home comforts just what we were looking for Very comfortable bed
Breakfast was a bit quirky good food but quirky
friendly, easy going, good food.
Beautiful old farmhouse - 17th century I believe. Lovely and quiet with great views of the countryside. Good access for walks on wonderful Dartmoor. Very nice places to eat within a short drive.
I can't think of anything.
