An award-winning 5 Star Dartmoor Farmhouse B&B, Colcharton Farm is an original Elizabethan longhouse dating from the 16th Century and is situated in the beautiful Tamar Valley two miles west of Tavistock. Our awards include an Enjoy England Breakfast Award and a Visit England Rose Award in recognition of our excellent customer service.
Luxurious accommodation retains many original features including bell pulls, granite steps and even a Bible cupboard in the kitchen. The guest house is peacefully situated in the beautiful Tamar Valley, with fields, trees and lovely country lanes teeming with wild flowers in spring. We're the ideal base for touring and exploring Devon and Cornwall with guests able to enjoy stunning views of The Dartmoor National Park.
We offer a choice of three elegant en-suite rooms. All our rooms include a flat-screen TV, towels and bathrobes, luxury Cole & Lewis toiletries, fresh flowers and free Wi-Fi.
Our home-produced farmhouse cooking has helped us receive the prestigious Enjoy England Breakfast Award. We serve full English or Continental options in a period dining room on a traditional oak dining suite. Vegetarians or those with special diets can be catered for with prior notice. Our breakfast menu includes a locally sourced cooked breakfast, smoked salmon with scrambled egg, homemade pancakes and a choice of poached or scrambled eggs on toast.
Children are welcome to the farmhouse at reduced rates, but regretfully no dogs are allowed. The farm is a non smoking establishment and for guests’ convenience we have a large parking area for cars. We welcome guests all year round except during the Christmas period.
Why not relax in the spacious lounge, and enjoy the glow and smell of the log fire in winter, complete with Freeview TV and DVD player.
