A charming, vintage B&B in Sparkwell, South Devon

mainA heart-beat  from Dartmoor National Park and a 25-minute drive from the fabulous South Devon coast, you will find the village of Sparkwell and the vintage bed and breakfast rooms at Old Home Cottage.  Ideally situated for a surf ‘n turf break, this 200-year old home  is just a five-minute stroll from the Michelin starred Treby Arms.  It is also home to The Artisan Bakery School, where your hosts, Penny & Dragan, offer expert tuition in bread, pizza, and pastry making of all kinds.

There are lots of things to do and see in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and we are happy to help you plan your day, whether you want to go walking, riding, cycling, kayaking or sailing.  There are plenty of cultural activities going on,  masses of local artists to enjoy and some particularly lovely gardens to visit.    Pretty much something for everyone!

Free time is increasingly rare and precious, so whatever you want to do with your break, we’ll help you get the most out of it. If you’ve had a long drive down to Devon, you can relax with a drink or a book  in the garden, or have a soak in the bath before  heading out for an evening meal.   Our aim is to make you feel  happy and comfortable from the minute you walk in the door.

  1. Quaint and peaceful. Be sure to get some of the seeded Cheese biscuits when you stay…. And if you manage to open the old safe please tell what’s inside!

  2. We had a wonderful & very restorative long weekend here, complete with fun & inspiring bread- & pizza-making workshop, & loved those seeded cheese biscuits too. Penny & Dragan are great company, & super-solicitous hosts, & their house is just charming. Can highly recommend!

  3. Thank you Penny and Dragon for making our anniversay weekend one to remember. A truely relaxing weekend coupled with fantastic food and wine. I highly recommend anyone who enjoys relaxing with great company to book here. 10/10

  4. Please could you let me know the price for 2 x single rooms for the nights of Weds 3rd and Thurs 4th December, for dinner, bed and breakfast and also for just B&B?

    Also, what is the distance to the zoological park in Sparkwell, from your cottage?

    Many thanks,
