ABOUT

Flower3.png

We are open for a socially distanced season,

mitigating risk for our guests and ourselves.

We have created a home that stands the test of time and reflects our character.

The design has influences of our eclectic style with a sense of purpose and energy.  

 The house speaks the language of English decoration in all its eccentric, comfortable

and faded glory with high quality bedding, toiletries, food and service.

 

Established as an Inn in 1752, the house then consisted of a ladies parlour, a tap room, 

dining room, larder, kitchen, a drawing room and seven good bedrooms. 

There were four large underground cellars, a good bowling alley with adjoining courtlage, 

two pig houses and thirty stables with overhead lofts and a secret lane to the Post Office.

 

The house now, a boutique B&B and two-bedroom holiday let provides a welcoming home with a drawing room, six well appointed guest bedrooms and a courtyard garden.

 

Our bedrooms are individually decorated with comfort and cleanliness our priority. 

 All of our house bedrooms offer full length mirrors, TV, radios and coffee & tea trays.  

 

One Drake Road is located a two minute walk from the Tavistock Town Hall

and famous pannier market and a short walk to the picturesque Dartmoor National Park.  

 

There are eight on-street parking spaces in front of the house available for free from

5pm to 10am and all day Sunday plus one hour of free parking during the day.

 

The infamous naval City of Plymouth is 12 miles away where main line trains

from Paddington London stop alongside regular coaches from London Victoria.

 

The border with Cornwall is around 15 minutes drive away. Port Isaac is 38 miles away, Padstow is 57 miles away, Newquay is 52 miles away and St. Ives is 80 miles away.                 All suitable for days out to the beach.

We welcome wedding guests and we are friends with all the local wedding venues.

GUEST REVIEWS

Iain and Jack deserve to succeed.

This is not a B&B, it is their home and you are made to feel like friends and house guests.

The fact that the whole place is straight out of

an upmarket beautiful homes magazine is just magic. Every room is different, with marvellously idiosyncratic touches... sometimes at the expense of practicality...but who cares, when you're marvelling at the craft and revelling

in the fun of it all.

The location is just perfect....

right in the very centre of Tavistock.

We were on motorbikes which,

thanks to Iain, we're easy to house.

Altogether a memorable stay

and I'll certainly be back.
