After winning 'Best B&B in the South West' from Taste of the West last year, we made the finals this year! How about that? We do what we do, and we're thrilled people seem to like it :)

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.

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

June 2019 - Lily James was back in the village filming again (after her first visit a couple of years ago for Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society), this time for a new version of 'Rebecca' from the book by Daphne du Maurier. Filmed in various parts of Devon and Cornwall, Hartland Quay was used as one of the locations. To be released on Netfilx, the exact date is not known, but when we do, we'll let you know!
