My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights but wish we'd booked to stay longer. The room was beautiful with a gorgeous view of the vast grounds. Breakfast was superb. The staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble. Can't wait to visit again.

A great base point for exploring everything South West. We stayed in the Van Gogh room, with a huge bathroom, super king size bed, it was worth the treat. Breakfast was lovely,...

Myself and my partner stayed here for a long weekend, our room was beautiful, the bathroom was huge, everything was clean and the staff were extremely brilliant, very genuine people. You got a generous portion of breakfast each morning. It really did feel like a home away from home, we would definitely come back to this hotel.

We spent 4 nights here and truly enjoyed ourselves. Lovely rooms and great bathtub! Breakfast was fantastic, staff very welcoming and helpful. Grounds incredible / lovely to stroll around. Short walking distance to train, pubs and restaurant. Easy commute to Exeter. The only drawback was a very hot room - apparently over the boiler room( so we were not able...

For a quiet classy stay, this is definitely the place to go. Set in beautiful gardens, the house is well presented and exceptionally clean throughout.

We were attending a wedding and needed accommodation for two nights in the area. I searched on Trip Advisor and found Woodhayes. It turned out to be perfect for a number of reasons.
