Blue Room £109Per night

With a nod to our coastal location, this west-facing room is in the Victorian part of the house and has elegant gothic shaped windows and other original features. This is a peaceful, calming room with just the sounds of the babbling Abbey River and birdsong from the woods.


Mill Room £119Per night

Inspired by the lichen on the trees in the garden, this dual aspect room is calm and serene with views of the Abbey River, woods and garden. Tucked away in the original mill this large yet cosy room features some of the original beams.


Green Room £99Per night

For this room, we have taken our cue from the abundance of bird life in the woods and the garden. On the south side of the house the Green Room can be configured with either twin beds or a king size bed. Facing the windows, you can sit in bed with a morning cup of tea and look out towards the woods and stream.


Calm and relaxing rooms

When creating our bedrooms we have taken care to include items that we hope will make your stay both comfortable and enjoyable. All refreshment trays have a variety of different teas, coffee and water plus fresh milk each day. Bathrooms are warm and inviting with fluffy towels and gorgeous smellies. Every room has a hairdryer and as a very welcome guest in our house, other items such as an ironing board, sewing and shoe cleaning kit are available to you by request.

Unwind in beautiful Devon

The Hartland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet relatively unknown. Enjoy a slower pace of life, walk through the bluebell woods from our door, visit Hartland Abbey or Docton Mill gardens, stroll through picturesque streets of Appledore and Instow. Or have some tea and cake in our garden, listen to the stream and the birds. Go the Quay and watch a breathtaking sunset with a glass of something. Bliss.

Or clear out the cobwebs

The north coast of Devon and Cornwall is an invigorating mix of wild, rugged cliffs and long sandy beaches, refreshingly interspersed with cafes and pubs.  There is nothing better for the soul than a coastal walk whatever the season, to appreciate the incredible scenery and to really get the blood pumping. Alternatively there is horse riding and golf nearby, or surfing for both beginners and hard-core dudes. 

Latest news and reviews

If you are off for a long walk it might be worth sorting out a packed lunch which can be pre-ordered from  in the village and collected from 9am

We now have a fridge in the dining room for guests to use.  It is also where you will find chilled water, fresh milk and the Nespresso coffee maker.  The afternoon's 'cake' will also be left in the dining room.

Very excited as we've just started using SMOLwashing capsules and fabric softener. Delivered to our door in plastic free packaging, ecologically greener than most, cruelty free and smells divine which is hugely important to us, as you want to get into a clean fresh smelling bed when you go away right? The fabric softener comes in a recycled plastic pumpy thing which you send back for refill. We do shedloads of washing and are genuinely chuffed that we will soften our waste and chemical blow.

Our electricity is now being supplied by Bulb whose energy is 100% renewable. Every little helps.


And 3 - 2 - 1, we're back in the room. Lovely to be open again and greeting so many regular guests who have stuck with us over the last year, pushing forward their stays each time we've been locked down. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

We are absolutely still taking bookings which can be made online or please do contact us direct if you have a query. As before, there are modifications to our usual way of things to keep our guests and us safe - see separate page on the website. See you soon :)

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find out our new discoveries, photos of our stunning surroundings and additions to the house.

We are very proud of our Tripadvisor reviews. You can find more on Facebook, Google and when you go through to our booking page.

June 21 - This is what you hope a B & B will be like. Outstanding in every respect.

July 21 - Such a gracious place and lovely people who go far beyond the norm. We have never stayed in a better place.

Aug 21 - I was going to say that this was one of the best B&Bs that we have stayed at but instead will say it is THE BEST. All the added touches made it extra special.

Aug 21 - Where can I start ? This is quite possibly the best B&B in the country.

Aug 21 - One of the loveliest bnbs we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed in many around Europe. Cathy and James were so friendly and couldn’t do enough to help make our stay enjoyable. The house is beautiful and the food was incredible - home made biscuits on arrival was a very welcome treat after 12miles walking. We would very highly recommend Hartland Mill to anyone looking for a home away from home.

Aug 21 - This is by far the best B & B we’ve stayed in and we would definitely recommend it. James and Cathy went out of their way to make our stay special. The accommodation and food was amazing. There were lots of small touches such as homemade biscuits and lovely shower products. Each morning they cooked a vegan breakfast for us and it was really delicious. It is in a beautiful setting and they were very informative about the area.

Plastic-free B&B

Well, we're not there yet, but we're trying - biodegradable bin bags, ocean friendly cotton buds, refillable bathroom products, reuse and recycling of plastics in the kitchen. We cut out plastic milk cartons by using the milk dispenser in the village and reusable glass bottles. Plus, we now use bamboo cake boxes for your afternoon treat! We happily refill your water bottles of course. If we all try - it's got to make a difference right?
