Kerswell Farmhouse

Elegant living in a rural paradise…

This is not your average Wolsey Lodge bed and breakfast, the art gallery alone is a sure sign of that, so too is the extensive wine collection gathered by your hosts, alongside the wonderful blend of old and new that allows for modern day luxuries making for an extremely comfortable stay.

Located just outside the village of Cornworthy near the River Dart, the original Kerswell Farmhouse dates back 400 years. There are five well-appointed B&B guest bedrooms, three in the main house and two in the adjacent barn conversion. Rooms have under floor heating, sumptuous pocket-sprung mattresses, goose down duvets, are individually styled and finishing touches including fresh flowers, well-stocked tea trays, and White Company toiletries.

Besides the plentiful reading materials, local maps and guides all there to assist you during your stay, guests are also welcome to personally guided tours of Dartmoor. The breakfast is award winning thanks to the skills of your hosts but also the high-quality ingredients used throughout. There is also a fully stocked honesty bar open 24 hours a day.

Kerswell Farm is really good and we had a very pleasant stay. The hosts are very friendly and they have put a great amount of effort into the furnishing and services in the rooms. The food is excellent.
