Thoroughly beautiful with excellent hospitality from both Paul and Linnie. Breakfast as good / even better than when they won the "Four in a Bed" competition. It was so good that we have re booked prior to our departure for our parents 70th birthday weekend.

Wow thank you so much. It was a treat for us having you stay.

"Lovely hosts in Luxurious setting"

We had two wonderful nights at Higher Gitcombe , Paul and Lynnie were brilliant hosts , so welcoming , warm and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them.The cream suite was luxurious, spacious and spotlessly clean. The wonderful view from the bed each morning made our morning cup of tea more enjoyable. It was such a beautiful house we really didn't want to go home. We have booked again for next year and cannot wait to see Paul and Lynnie again.

"Best ever stay in uk or even abroad, unique, picturesque & luxurious house."

My wife & myself booked a break to celebrate my 60th birthday. We travelled from Margate to To Totnes around 5hrs. The accommodation is 5star +, rooms lookout over the countryside with views of Dartmoor. Paul & Lynnie are fantastic, friendly hosts who could not have made us feel more special, you are made to feel like they have know you all your life, they spoil you like never before. Breakfeast - well where do i start, you have such a choice of fruit, cereals, fruit juices, cooked breakfeast menu has every thing & anything you could wish for. We will be going to stay at Gitcombe in the future & would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break in the Devon countryside. Mark & Christine

"Perfection! Would so recommend anyone to go here"

We arrived 24.10.15. Paul and Linnie were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The house was AMAZING! Could not in all honesty fault a thing, we were in the cream room, which was awesome, but we got to say all the rooms are perfect. We ordered our breakfast soon after arriving, because the choice was so amazing! Linnie's new breakfast crumble was delightful, and she even gave me some mango, as I mentioned in passing how I love it! Incidentally, breakfast was wow! To sum up, I loved it with a passion, we loved paul and linnie, we can not wait to come back and have som more pampering!

"Rural retreat but still convenient"

We were welcomed into a spotless house, better described as a home, with a room offering views across farmland to distant hills. A truely rural setting as In the morning we could watch a buzzard hovering over the fields. The healthy choices for breakfast were appreciated and rounded off a short but pleasant stay. Because it is off the 'main' roads you will need clear directions/grid reference/GPS co-ordinates initially but then it is easy to find and is a minor problem for the sake of the quiet rural location.

"A B&B to die for!"

After a long journey from East Anglia, Paul and Lynnie,Jolly, the owners, welcomed us to Higher Gitcombe like long-lost friends. They simply could not do enough for us - even allowing us to use their own sitting room while they were not using it. Higher Gitcombe is a stunning house and looks as if it had just stepped out of Homes & Gardens. The pristine accommodation is replete with every facility from en-suites to tea making to television ,. The breakfasts, whether Continental or Full English are simply delicious ..If there was a higher classification than 5 star we would have no hesitation in awarding to Higher Gitcombe.

"Excellent Choice with First Class Accommodation & lovely Hosts"

As a party of six one on crutches and our dog not the easiest party to cater for but from arriving until we left after 3 nights Lynnie and Paul made us so very welcome. All the accommodation is to a very high standard with lots of personal touches making for a really homely feel. Situated right in the heart of the country surrounded by fields its so tranquil but you are only a couple of miles from several excellent pub/ restaurants (dog friendly) which means you have all the options for an excellent break. Oh the breakfast we are big eaters but Lynnie prepared the most amazing Jolly breakfast sundae and fully cooked traditional breakfast attentively served by Paul. They work hard to make sure that you have a memorable stay so we would whole heartily recommend to anyone and will definitely return if we come back to the area in the future.
