Blue Room £105Per 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 £115Per 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 £95Per 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

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.

29 Oct - I was extremely impressed with your hospitality and effort to make our stay so comfortable. Your food is the best I have experienced in a B & B in the UK. It was great to be able to chat in front of the fire in your sitting room.

3 Nov - We had a fantastic stay with James and Cathy who were wonderful hosts. We were welcomed with a roaring fire and a friendly smile. The beds were super comfy, rooms tastefully decorated and the breakfast was amazing, really loved the take-away muffins. Would def recommend to anyone wanting a bit more luxury from a B&B.

15 Nov - Hartland Mill couldn't have been more delightful. The owners helpful and caring beyond the usual point of expectation. The ambience, warm and friendly. The rooms, superb, and the pre-ordered evening meal brilliant in every way, the room it was in, the serving up and the food itself.

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. 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?
