Bed & Breakfast
I enjoyed my stay in the Great Grubb B&B in Totnes. Toby and Genya make their guests very welcome. The room was comfortable and spacious. It was great to have parking onsite and to be close enough to the town to walk to the shops & cafes. I was visiting relatives, so I didn't have the breakfast but other residents were certainly enjoying theirs and it smelt amazing.

Stayed three nights , room was clean, comfortable and well furnished. The bathroom was compact but then you don't spend a lot of time in there.

Toby had plenty of advice on places to see and eat. It was a 20 minute stroll to the town and river.

Breakfast was good with plenty of choice.

I would definitely recommend It.

Suberb B&b In Totnes
I can't speak highly enough of The Great Grubb B&B. It's spotlessly clean and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. It's also quite good value. What I particularly liked was that there was no issue about me staying for one night in a single room on a Saturday - some B&B owners can barely conceal their contempt at such a request but not here! I was made to feel every bit as welcome as a couple staying for a week. I would have loved to stay for longer and am thinking of booking a longer stay there next year. The only comment I would make is that the room I had was in a part of the house with very little natural light (the house is situated on the side of a hill). The windows looked out onto (well maintained) passageways and a fire escape staircase. I know that some of the rooms at the B&B have lovely views and I'd have preferred a room with more natural light if I was staying longer (it was absolutely fine for one night). But that's just a small point. The bathroom had lovely modern fixtures and fittings and everything worked very efficiently although in rather a tight space! Overall a great weekend experience. The B&B is easy walking distance from the town and railway station - highly recommended!!

The Great Grubb is dog-friendly, which is a grand thing. He was allowed in the room and the breakfast room. There is a nice area for walking dogs not far away.

Our room was small, but pretty and had everything we needed.

The breakfast room is lovely and our hosts were very accommodating with what we wanted.

The location is good - it's a short walk into central Totnes and a good base to explore the South Hams.

One Of The Best In Totnes.
This is my third visit, first two,times as a single guest, this time stayed at the GREAT GRUBB with the wife.

As with my first couple of stays, this venue is 10/10 for everything, we had room number 7, a stand alone room separate from the main building, and it was an absolute delight to be in, very clean, warm & cozy, so well thought out, every "Want" was catered for, the owners are very friendly and proud of there accommodation and rightly so.

In a nut-shell, this is very good accommodation, the breakfast is one of the best we have had, the truth is, if I did not like it, I would not be back, but I have been to stay 3 times, and will be back again because it is so good.

We were going to a family wedding in totnes and it was close, easy to find, comfortable, easy parking, easy to get in and out, nice clean decor, comfortable beds, friendly owners, relaxed atmosphere, and the breakfast was good with plenty of choice and the owners were happy to accommodate our dietary quirks. Would recommend and would stay again.

Friendly, Helpful, Accommodating, Clean, And Great Grub!
The proprietors were incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were generous with excellent local food quality, and delicious cooking. They were completely accommodating of our varied special dietary requirements. The room and toilet area were kept immaculately clean. I loved eating and having a late tea in the conservatory/sunroom which stuck out into a beautiful garden.

The location could not have been better. It was in close proximity to the arboretum, Follaton Estates, and a short walk from the town center, The River Dart, Dartington Estates, Totnes Castle, and the Train and bus stations!

Lovely, Peaceful, Restful, Friendly, And Clean!
My husband and I loved our stay at the The Great Grubb B&B. They proprietors were very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts served were wonderful, and they even accommodated our various special dietary needs well above and beyond the call of duty. We loved having tea (and breakfasts) in the conservatory (sun room) set in the midst of their lovely garden.

It was an easy walk into town as well as to the nearby arboretum and surrounding neighbourboods. In fact, Follaton Estates and Dartington Gardens were in walking distance as well! We plan on returning to Totnes many times in the coming years and definitely plan on returning to the GGB&B. They have earned our loyalty.

Comfortable Beds, Great Breakfast!
Excellent breakfast! We travelled by train with our dog and we chose this B&B as it had dog friendly rooms available and was a 20 minute walk from the station. It was a good choice, comfy rooms, we stayed twice and although one room was small the beds were good in both. Very helpful friendly couple who run B&B looked after us well and the breakfast was delicious

Shame About The Plumbing!
Our room was fine. The en-suite was very spacious and a good selection of toiletries were supplied. The breakfast was excellent. BUT the noise from the plumbing late at night and early the next morning kept us awake. Every time a tap was turned on in the house it sounded as though it was in the same room. It was really loud.

I arrived at The Great Grubb for my two night stay a little nervous at first, as I was traveling alone on this occasion.

I need not have been nervous at all, all staff are very friendly, the place was very-very clean, the room was 10/10 for me, and the breakfast again 10/10.

Overall, I very much enjoyed my stay at The Great Grubb, and will 101% be going back there on my next solo visit to Totnes.

To all staff at The Great Grubb, you are doing a great job.

A Very Comfortable Stay
I recently had to visit Dartmouth to attend a funeral. I was unable to find accomodation in Dartmouth and decided to try Totnes. How pleased I was. The room albeit rather small was more than adequate with some welcome additions such as toileties in the En-suite bathroom and a very generous refreshment tray. I enjoyed two very substantial breakfasts and perhaps, most importantly the staff were very welcoming and helpful. I needed some information on how to travel to Dartmouth by local bus and was given up to date timetables and directions for the bus stops.

All in all a very comfortable stay and I would not hesitate in recommending the Great Grubb.

Berry Pomeroy Castle - Devon - Castle

Berry Pomeroy Castle - Devon - Castle

Distance 4.51 miles (7.22 km)
This romantic ruined castle is situated in a picturesque Devon valley and steeped in local folklore and legend. The gatehouse and defensive curtain wall date from the late 15th century and behind them are the remains of an Elizabethan country house built C.1560-1600 by the Seymour family. Edward Seymour, first Duke of Somerset also known as the uncle and governor of the boy-king, Edward VI acquired the castle in 1547. On the wall of the gatehouse chamber is a 15th-century painting of the three kings bearing gifts to Christ. A fascinating audio tour is also available.
