"Exactly what we needed, having our own space, in a good location for enjoying Dartmoor."
Our stay was relaxing, we did plenty of walking. We enjoyed eating in the two pubs in Princetown. Our only disappointed was the badly stocked Princetown Stores - they didn't have any cheese! Read less
Likes:
We wanted to have plenty of space so if the weather was rough we would be comfortable staying in, and not stuck in a B&B room. The Beeches was well equipped for cooking and drying our wet clothes.
Dislikes:
It is disappointing that the Princetown Stores was not better stocked with provisions that holiday makers to the town would want. A shop with no Cheddar Cheese, beer or wine!

"Dartmoor revisited, three most enjoyable days at The Beeches, Princetown."
This location was chosen to provide a short break during which I was able to celebrate my birthday with my husband, son and his companion.
We are familiar with the area and appreciate its' beauty and rugged-ness.
The Beeches, discovered by internet search, provided an excellent, central location for our purposes. Read less
Likes:
It was comfortable and inviting and all facilities that one could reasonably wish for were provided.
Sally Kinsey, the owner, is a delightful, bubbly person who made us instantly welcome and at ease.
Dislikes:
Should I choose to return to this area again, for a short break, I would seriously consider staying at The Beeches.
Response from The Oratory B&B & The Beeches Self-Catering:

Likes:
The location - Princetown is a good place to stay for visiting Dartmoor and Plymouth. We prefer to stay in self catering places rather than hotels or guest houses.
Dislikes:
Plaster had fallen off the garden wall all over the place where we had to park our new car, which was a bit of a concern. And the front door was hard to open and close.
Response from The Oratory B&B & The Beeches Self-Catering:
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a repsonse. Unfortunatly the winter was hard in Princetown this year but both items you mentioned are in the process of being repaired. The wooden door that had swollen from the wet weather has been removed by a carpenter today and been refitted. The plasterer also came today took off the loose plaster from the rear wall and will be reskimming later this week. Best wishes Sally
