Fifth visit to Fitzford Gate House. Very convenient for both Tavistock & Dartmoor. Property excellent. We will be back again.

Location is great but the property is amazing and the inside is just as impressive as the outside. Would definitely recommend the house and if we get the chance go back again !!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully renovated historic building. Intelligent design and tasteful decoration throughout. Amazing kitchen, perfectly equipped, never lacked for anything. Beautifully designed bathrooms. Sumptuous bedding, a real treat! Generous parking on site. We enjoyed eating outdoors in the small but beautifully laid out garden. Altogether a great location, we could walk through the park into town, or in opposite direction along the canal. A perfect place to stay.

Fourth visit to Fitzford Gatehouse & will be returning. Excellent property. Extremely convenient to be able to walk into Tavistock.

Beautifully restored historic building located 5 - 10 minutes walk from Tavistock town centre. The property is the nicest and best equipped property we have ever stayed in. The welcome gifts left by the owner for us were lovely and there was even a Christmas tree and lights!

We loved our stay at Fitzford Gate House. We would like to thank the owner for making so much effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The attention to detail, the personalised welcome sign, the scones, the quality of the furnishings and decor, everything was exceptional. We hope we can return in the future.

This is our third visit to Fitzford Lodge and it won’t be our last. Great base for visiting Dartmoor & the coast. It’s a joy to be able to walk into Tavistock no worrying about where to park the car. The property is probably the best one we have ever stayed in.

Fantastic house, great location. Lovely touch of homemade cakes and scones on arrival. Can’t recommend highly enough, would definitely stay again.

An excellent place to stay with all the small details considered (such as a good supply of pods for the Nespresso machine). It was very clean and beautifully presented as well as being within easy walking distance of the town centre via a lovely canal or river walk. The owner was very pleasant and helpful too.

Brilliant property 2nd stay there & will be returning as soon as possible. Property exceeded expectations on first visit & again on second visit, owner added some kind & thoughtful extras. Perfectly situated for Dartmoor & the coast & what a joy to be able to walk into Tavistock. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful property, very tastefully decorated with a great blend of modern and antique furniture and very comfortable to stay in. It has everything you could ever need to make it feel like home from home. Tavistock is a lovely town and there is plenty to do nearby. We will come again!

This is a stunning property, the interior is finished to a really high standard with a real wow factor. We felt like King's and Queen's of the castle ! The extra touches, cream tea, flowers, dog treats and fresh local milk in the fridge made us feel very welcome. The property location is excellent 10mins walk through a pretty park into the centre of Tavistock. Looking forward to returning soon.

This is a beautiful property just on the edge of Tavistock. It has been restored and furnished to a very high standard. If you get the weather, there is also a lovely courtyard to the rear of the property.

The property is out out of this world and the standard is of the highest level. It is so well situated and an easy 10 minute walk into Tavistock.

We are so glad to read your brilliant comments for Fitzford Gate House! It's great that the location worked so well for you with its proximity to Tavistock and we hope to welcome you back. Sarah, Customer Support

This property was absolutely beautiful inside and out. It was so tastefully decorated and the finishing touches were exquiste. There were bathrobes provided in each bedroom neatly folded on each bed. The fresh flowers on the dining table and coffee table were another nice touch. Another very thoughtful gesture was the cream tea for our arrival - fresh scones, jam and clotted cream with slices of lemon drizzel cake and a pint of milk from a local diary. The kitchen had everything you would need in it - even down to small caddy bags for the recyling box. I loved everything about this property and I'm surprised it hasn't been on a television show like George Clarke Remarkable Renevations as it was completely transformed and is absolutely stunning. It was an absoulte pleasure to stay here and the fact that it was dog friendly was an extra plus from me. Another kind extra was dog treats and dog towels were provided in the downstairs shower. We had a wonderful stay.

Very helpful and welcoming owners. Fitzford Gatehouse was everything it promised to be and more. The mixture of a restored 1700 century building with a very modern extension worked extremly well. The sense of history was papable but the modern comfort was first class. We will be returning next year.

Absolutely first rate. Facilities and the property were spot on for what we wanted. Easy access to the town, and with Drake's statue being nearby it was simple to find the property. Everything is high spec and we were given a lovely welcome by the owners. It was lovely to be able to take Ozzie (our cocker spaniel) on the canal walk every day behind the school and college and then on towards the viaduct. Its a great walk with stunning views and access is less than 100 yards from the property.

Stayed in September and got summer weather! Excellent cottage with all mod cons & superb position for both town & Dartmoor. Have already booked again for April 2022.

Fantastic property with a high finish. Everything catered for, a real home from home experience. A cream tea welcomed us in and had us captured instantly. The location to the park, canal walk and towns makes this a winner for couples and families alike. Would go back tomorrow!

A superbly equipped house - the best we have rented. The central location allowed easy walking access to Tavistock and some lovely restaurants. We recommend Taylors and the Cornish Arms. The house is also central to driving out to several tourist spots.

We enjoyed staying in the cottage which is a beautifully restored historic building with all the home comforts. We loved the welcome cream tea. Everything provided was of a high specification and the furnishings and fittings were top quality, the bathrooms perfect and the kitchen had everything we might need. Even our dog was provided for! The garden was also beautifully landscaped, fully enclosed and we loved the water feature. The owner seems to have thought of everything - thank you!

Absolutely stunning place to stay. Beautifully decorated and furnished. Garden whilst low maintenance had sun all afternoon and was a pleasure to sit in. Thoroughly recommend the 'castle'.
