We kindly request that you only come to stay with us if you are feeling well. If you are feeling unwell with Covid symptoms prior to arrival, during your stay or afterwards please let us know immediately.
As we only have two guest bedrooms, we do feel that we are able to manage the current situation fairly well. The following are some of the steps we have already taken and will continue to review. We may make further changes, as situations arise.
Our first request is that we all kindly still respect social distancing wherever possible.
We will respect the decision of any guest who wishes to wear a face covering and will likewise wear ours.
Arrival times will be staggered to allow guests to safely settle into their accommodation.
All guests will be asked to enter/exit our property via the front door, and make use of the hand gel provided on the table in the hallway.
In addition to our usual high standards of cleanliness, we will continue to carry out more regular cleaning of touch points, ie light switches, door handles, grab rails, gate catches.
Bedrooms can be "safe havens" for guests, where we will only enter to carry out housekeeping duties, should you wish us to. Please let us know on arrival if that is your wish.
Bedroom windows must be opened before you leave the room for the day to enable ventilation. We will close them at an appropriate time later, to conserve heating.
Breakfast times for the two guest bedrooms will be staggered as far as possible (unless both rooms are members of the same party). Each room will be allocated their own dining table to be used throughout their stay. In the past our dining room sideboard has displayed a selection of cereals, fruits, conserves, etc. These items will still be on offer at breakfast time, however they will be served direct from the kitchen.
Above all, our greatest wish is to be able to make your stay with us as enjoyable and safe as possible.
Guests are welcome to arrive from 4pm onwards. There is ample private off road parking through our 5 bar gate. We offer a complimentary home baked Devonshire cream tea for all arrivals between 4pm and 5.30pm. Please advise us in advance if you are planning to arrive after 7pm.
We kindly ask all guests to vacate their rooms by 10.30am on the day of departure.
In the morning, we offer a choice of delicious breakfasts between 8.00am and 9.30am. However, we are happy to serve earlier by prior arrangement. A selection of cereal, fruit, yogurt and juice will wet your appetite for a hearty traditional full English breakfast. If this is not your desire, perhaps we can tempt you with a cooked breakfast tailored to your choices, maybe vegetarian, vegan or gluten free, we do our best to please everyone. Wherever possible our ingredients are sourced locally, including eggs laid by our own hens and homemade conserves from our own garden produce. Please advise us at the time of booking if you have any special dietary requirements.
Don't forget to ask us about our delightful picnic lunch/supper or "luxury picnic hamper" which we will be happy to prepare for you during your stay at a very reasonable cost.
You need look no further than The New Inn Restaurant and Bar, just a couple of minutes walk away, for a delicious lunch or evening meal. They are open Wednesday to Sunday. Booking advisable. COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS MAY APPLY.
Alternatively, there are pubs and restaurants in Okehampton and the surrounding villages, where we will be happy to book a table for you.
Both bedrooms are equipped with USB charging sockets for your devices and a TV with remote control.
Free wifi is available to guests.
In addition to guests arriving by car, we also welcome motorcyclists, cyclists and walkers. There are cleaning facilities and undercover secure parking for motorbikes and bicycles in our car port. Hooks to hang outdoor clothing on, as well as mats for muddy boots are situated in the boot room and anything particularly wet can be dried in front of our Rayburn in the kitchen. We can offer suggestions for excellent rides, both motorised or using pedal power, and walks of varying length.
It is also possible to reach us by public transport, with buses stopping by The New Inn, just two minutes walk away. However, we would suggest you check the bus timetable in advance, as the service can be quite limited at certain times.
