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 bar, 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.
The house now, a boutique B&B 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 bedrooms offer full length mirrors, radios and fresh 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.
