'Fantastic friendly place to stay. Ideal location. Easy access to enjoy long walks on the Moors, visit Plymouth or spend time with friends. David and John own a beautiful guest house which has a very warm welcome, the rooms are well kept and have a personal touch second to none. The rooms have a homely feel to them and the personal welcome letter was lovely, the information provided in the room has also been well thought out. The breakfast served is cooked to perfection using locally sourced produce. Very highly recommended one of the best guest houses we have stayed at.'

'In a word \"superb\". The room was spotlessly clean with a lovely big bed with windows looking over the hills. The attention to detail was obvious from the toiletries in the shower room to the tea & coffee facilites together with choclates/biscuits. Nothing was too much trouble for David or John we received a warm & friendly welcome. The quality of the food at brekfast was first class giving excellent value for money. We would highly recommend this accommodation as one of the best to date we have stayed in.'

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!'

Overcombe House Recommendation
5 stars 5

'Overcombe House is located in a quite lane with easy access to both Dartmoor and the surrounding towns and villages. I found the Owners of Overcombe House to be pleasant and willing to make sure that my stay was as comfortable as it could be. The property was clean and my room contained all the usual things a guest would need. Breakfast was excellent with a full choice tailored to suit each individual guest. I recomend Overcombe House unreservedly.'

5 stars 5

'What a delightful gem Overcombe House was to find. We had a spacious twin room, with a great view. Comfortable large beds, cosy duvets and a generous size en-suite - everything was spotless. Free wifi. Breakfasts were first class, with a great variety on offer. John\'s mushrooms with thyme seasoning were so, so tasty. Well done fellows that you make the effort to source most things locally. Breakfasts made even more delightful, by gazing at the bird life David and John attract to their back garden by providing bird feeding stations. Alas we didn\'t see the resident hedgehog that also has a safe home in the garden. David & John are such obliging hosts, who do \'that extra\' to ensure one\'s stay is enjoyable. We booked Overcombe at short notice for 3 nights. Then were so lucky to be able to extend for a further 3 nights when we realised it was ideally located for us to use as a base to drive daily to explore different parts of Devon & Cornwall. With a bustop at the end of the street there is no need to have the hastle of driving and finding parking in the busy interesting towns of Plymouth & Tavistock - just relax and catch a bus. A variety of quaint pubs and restaurants to dine out in Horrabridge or near by villages. Thank you David and John for a memorable stay. Two lovely gents, with generous spirits who both have a wonderful infectious sense of humour.'

'This gorgeous little B&B gets a 5* rather than a 4* review from us primarily due to it\'s incredible staff David and John! We booked at extremely late notice due to needing a place to stay after a family tragedy before Christmas; and location for us to be with other family members was key. Perhaps slightly on the pricey side, but we had a beautiful room, and David and John could not have done more for us! Their warm and caring nature, plus their fabulous cooking skills, made the short period of time we stayed just brilliant! Thank you!'

'David and John made my sister and I very welcome, they are friendly, helpful with advice on places to visit and eat. We could not have had better service anywhere. The room was spotless with little extras that make it feel like home. The bathroom is very well decorated with big fluffy white towels, the shower works just how you want it to everytime. Really enjoyed the breakfast good locally sourced food cooked to order, John's scrambled eggs melt in the mouth. As much or as little as anyone could want. We are definitely going back and I would recommend the Overcombe, to me it has everything. Well situated for wonderful walks, the walk along the ex railtrack to Tavistock should not be missed. The village of Horrabridge is lovely with two pubs serving good food. A very good bus service also adds to this brilliant location.'
