Bed and Breakfast Accommodation in Hatherleigh, Devon
The former farmhouse of Elmfield is said to have been built in 1836 and was originally the principal farm in the centre of this Saxon village. The coach houses and stables have long since been sold off as has much of the land providing much needed housing in the community. Fortunately at that time the owners extended the garden so the house now sits in an idyllic garden of about an acre overlooking Dartmoor. Elmfield was much admired by the late Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman CBE who described as being well proportioned and close to the village square. Northlew is a quiet friendly and much sought after village on the edge of the moor yet conveniently sited no more than 15 minutes from Okehampton (and the A30) Hatherleigh Highampton and Inwardleigh. We offer luxury Bed and Breakfast accommodation from £30 and you can be sure that our extensive breakfast menu will set you up for a day exploring our glorious countryside visiting the north and south coasts in both Devon and Cornwall or just relaxing with a good book in the garden. Our village inn is less than 100 yards away across the village square. We remind all guests that we have no card facilities at Elmfield and transactions therefore need to be by cash or cheque or a BACS payment.
Raymont House B&B
What's so special about Raymont House Bed and Breakfast? Well, for a start we provide accommodation for only one party of guests at a time, which means that you won't have to share the house with other guests - you will have the private bathroom and dining room to yourself. We can take a single person or anything up to a party of five. Jan and Alan pride themselves on giving their guests their undivided attention when it is required. Secondly, Raymont House itself is rather special. It's a spacious and attractive grade 2 listed town house with a long history of adaptation and refinement. The Georgian facade hides what was probably a collection of four ancient cob cottages with an alley between. The alley is now our hall, and the old cob walls are still there. Then there is the the small ancient market town of Hatherleigh, with its shops, pubs and unspoilt cob cottages lining the old streets. Hatherleigh is not far from Okehampton, well known for its proximity to Dartmoor. Beyond the town is the "Ruby Country", an agricultural area that looks pretty much as it must have done for centuries. And beyond that, but within an easy drive, are the delights of Dartmoor, Exmoor, and the rugged Atlantic coastline. Raymont House is the perfect place to spend some time relaxing, touring, walking or cycling.
