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

Well, we've actually only gone and won 'Best B&B in the South West' from Taste of the West. How about that? Completely stunned and thank you to Taste of the West - we couldn't be more thrilled.

After much searching, we are delighted to have found Hogwash Wash Foam which is made a stonesthrow away from us in Torrington. We love our Fikkerts soap, but it is made in Yorkshire and we have been keen to save on the transport miles, as well as support local makers. And what's more, Hogwash is PBA-free and really gentle for those with sensitive skin. You can also visit the Hogwash shop in Torrington where there are lots of other flavours.

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.

13 Dec - An absolutely beautiful B&B, nice quiet location with fantastic and engaging hosts. Cathy and James go above and beyond and their attention to detail is the best we have ever come across. People have raved about Cathy’s breakfasts and pastries, and they are 110% correct. The room was extremely clean, well appointed with a very comfortable bed. We can’t speak highly enough of our stay at Hartland Mill and Cathy and James.

11 March -Superb location, superb property, superb windows! Superb owners, superb business/project, superb breakfast, superb night's sleep, due to no light pollution, superb lack of traffic, superb lack of stress, superb part of Devon, superb part of the country, superb part of EUROPE!! 

2 Apr - We are lucky to be able to travel a lot and therefore we can confidently say that this has been one of the BEST B&Bs we have ever stayed in.........

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 happily refill your water bottles of course. If we all try - it's got to make a difference right?
