    This is a very happy establishment which contains half a dozen or so rooms. Our welcome was friendly, our room was spotless, the bed comfy and the shower strong and hot. Breakfast was delicious. Down the road (a five minute walk) are a couple of pubs which were great for dinner....the London Inn serves a wonderful beef and ale pie and The Leaping Salmon's food was amazing! There are some terrific walks on Dartmoor, a short drive away.

    Great breakfast. David & John were most accomodating. Good location for Tavistock, Plymouth & Dartmoor, so all tastes covered. Facilities provided for recycling, so leaflets & plastic bottles etc. weren't just put in the rubbish, which is so frustrating. Also they use Fair Trade products, which is a plus. Fresh milk provided for the tea/coffee in your room. Comfy bed.

    Wonderful hosts offering peaceful and relaxing accommodation at a great price. Comfy bed, quiet room and great local produce cooked breakfast. The rooms are well stocked with a variety of teas and coffee and even fresh milk! Breakfast was a joy to be able to watch the birds feeding from the array of bird feeders they have in the garden. The most wonderful stay. We will be back!

    Set off the main road, this was a delightfully calm, clean, comfortable, and simply wonderful place to stay. Our hosts were friendly, helpful, and quite, quite brilliant. I would happily recommend this to anyone, and would not hesitate to stay here again. There are so many touches that set this place above anywhere else I've stayed, and so clean. Loved it.

    nothing everything was perfect

    We stayed here to be near to a friends party which was held at the local pub. The guest house is run by John and David lovely people who go the extra mile when it come to comfort. The room was very clean and a personal welcome letter was waiting for us on the dressing table when we arrived. The bathroom had flannels included in the towel bales which we have never come across in all our years of travelling. The information book in our room was very informative and the DVD of life on Dartmoor was very interesting. The breakfast was very nice made fresh from local produce, David was lovely and we also liked the fact that John waited for us to come home and had a chat before retiring to our rooms. I would highly recommend this Guest house, if you are looking for comfort and feeling special this is definitely the place to stay.

    Our hosts David and John were very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We were offered advice on places to eat and I was kindly lent a book on walks which was very useful. The breakfast was way above average, I had light fluffy poached eggs with hollandaise sauce and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his full english, all locally sourced. Our rooms was tastefully decorated with recycling options and a lovely view of the moors. We would definitely stay here again!

    Only quibble is the access road from Yelverton direction is very rough, but assuming this is a public road it is not the fault of the Overcombe House owners.
