I shall without doubt be returning with my next...

For a quiet classy stay, this is definitely the place to go. Set in beautiful gardens, the house is well presented and exceptionally clean throughout. The hosts are extremely welcoming and have made every effort to make this the perfect stay. They have thought of the little things that all others forget, from a welcoming cup of tea to a...

Firstly the location was great for the wedding, also it would be good for flights out of Exeter airport etc. Secondly the welcome and customer service were...

Dominic, the owner, welcomed us and showed us to our room, which was well decorated and had everything we needed and more. After our long drive my husband was pleased to find a warming...

What a little gem. We had travelled from Hampshire late afternoon and arrived at Woodhayes around 5.30. Dominic was ready to welcome us the as soon as we rang the doorbell. From the moment we stepped inside we felt at home and comfortable - a lovely ambience of soft lighting and a warm glow from the wood burner. Our room,...

Found the hotel easily despite arriving in the dark and the rain. Welcomed by Dominic into a lovely house with use of comfortable and stylish drawing room as well as our spacious bedroom. The bathroom was elegant and huge with a walk in shower. Only criticism is that the towels were a little well used and hard. We had a...

We visited the area and ate at the Jack in the Green in Rockbeare a month previous and were looking for another B&B nearby. Woodhayes is a real find. A lovely 18th century house with beautiful grounds, especially in autumn. We were invited in by the owner and provided with tea and cake in the drawing room. The whole house...
