The Queens Head

79-80 West St, Tavistock PL19 8AQ, UK – 01822 612455

The service at the Queens Head was very good. They do seem to juggle the hotel responsibilities and that of the pub downstairs so checking in took a little longer than expected, but they were attentive and helpful. The room was great and the location was ideal. The street market for the Dickensian evening we attended was brilliant too. My kids loved the reindeer but that's only one day a year so check the diary if you're going to attend.

Had a nice meal as usual. It's basic pub food but it's always pleasant. The table could have been cleaner but otherwise nice.

The Bedford Hotel

1 Plymouth Rd, Tavistock PL19 8BB, UK – 01822 613221

Very pleasant stay. Staff very helpful and attentive.

I had experienced the fantastic hospitality of the hotel as I came across a male collapsed on the floor outside the hotel and whilst caring for him and awaiting the ambulance, the hotel staff came out and offered their help including providing blankets, a first aid kit and even offering us tea. An amazing effort considering going they were not obliged to help.

Tavistock House Hotel

50 Plymouth Rd, Tavistock PL19 8BU, UK – 01822 481627

Without doubt the finest independently owned and run small hotel that I have stayed at in a long, long time. Beautifully appointed, comfortable and clean rooms, a generous choice of breakfast options which includes food that is superbly cooked. The friendly owners can't do enough to ensure that your stay is nothing short of perfect and that you will remember to come back another day...which I shall certainly do, I can't recommend this place enough!

Truly superb stay. Every element of our visit was impeccable.

Happy days, Amstel has arrived

The Cornish Arms

15 West St, Tavistock PL19 8AN, UK – 01822 612145

Lovely food but bloody expensive. A side of peas £4. Same as what they pay their 17year old staff. Good eh! And that's fir working Christmas eve & New Years Eve.

Really lovely food, warm friendly staff and nice atmosphere. My first visit but will go again. Fairly standard "gastropub" prices but worth it for quality food and something a bit different.

The Blacksmiths Arms

Lamerton, Tavistock PL19 8QR, UK – 01822 612962

Friendly welcome although not for dogs! Really wholesome and delicious homemade food and lots of choice. Lovely roaring wood burner and speedy service too. Really competitively priced and genuinely a great place to eat.

A real country free house. The original building is quite small but a tasteful extension has been added.A wide menu,plus specials,takes it beyond normal pub food.Good choice of drinks.Benifits from a large car park and a winter fire makes it cosy.

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!

The Hollies Bed and Breakfast Tavistock

67 Parkwood Rd, Tavistock PL19 0HH, UK – 01822 617709

I stayed at The Hollies whilst doing the Devon Coast 2 Coast cycle ride. Although I only stayed for one night, it was a very pleasant experience. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated with a large en-suite. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast before leaving. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Hollies and will definitely stay there again if the opportunity arises.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Hollies. The room was well-decorated and very comfortable and the en-suite facilities excellent. Breakfast was an enjoyable meal, different every day and well-cooked. The owner was friendly and welcoming. We can definitely recommend this B&B as being extremely good value and a desirable place to stay.

Apple Tree Bed & Breakfast

44 Plymouth Rd, Tavistock PL19 8BU, UK – 07545 120885

Beautifully presented rooms, comfortable and luxurious. Top class breakfast!

"First Class" accommodation. Absolutely Beautiful. Congratulations to you both and we wish you every success. Tina & Alf, Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!

Old Tavistock Railway Station

Quant Park, Tavistock PL19 0JQ, UK – 01822 610136

These cottages have the most lovely views of Dartmoor, but they are also very handy for Tavistock town centre, which has some great little independent shops. I thought they were further out than they are, looking at the map before visiting but they are just up the hill, just out of the way enough that they are nice and peaceful. They are rather beautifully fitted out too. Re: the other review about railways: this is actually Tavistock North station - if you look at the proposed re-opening of the Plymouth line, if that happens, it will go in at the other end of the town!

We stayed in the Refreshment Hall for three nights.Everything is to a very high standard and Colin and Jenny were most welcoming. We all enjoyed it very much and hope to go back September 2011

Cottages On Dartmoor and Tavistock Trout Fishery

Parkwood Rd, Tavistock PL19 9JW, UK – 01822 615441

Lovely location, the animals outside are wonderful. We arrived too late to fish though which was a shame.

The Dartmoor Holiday Cottage Co.

Campsites and Caravan Parks

The Old Rectory Caravan & Camping Park

The Old Rectory, Gulworthy, Tavistock PL19 8JA, UK – 01822 481731

Clean and tidy. Facilities fairly basic. Might be rather tight for showers and toilets if it was even half full. I arrived in the rain on a bicycle out of season and was charged a whopping £16, cash - I felt that this price might have been arrived at after assessing my wet and tired state.

Very friendly. Interesting rare breeds. The site was nearly empty so no noise from other campers, but there was traffic noise. Facilities were good but it might get busy with a full campsite?

Harford Bridge Holiday Park

Peter Tavy, Tavistock PL19 9LS, UK – 01822 810349

Lovely site. Camped there for a couple of nights. Nice riverside pitches with a great walk to a local pub.

Lovely site , great fishing right on river, very clean well run family site.
