If you are looking for a luxury break, in a gorgeous town, look no further than the Boutique B & B Number 5ifty 8ight in the very heart of Tavistock. Adults only, it is a wonderful spot to go to chill out with a loved one and relax. Plus they serve Owens Coffee!
With luxury towels, bathrobes, bed linen and Molton Brown toiletries, this newly opened establishment is a real find. The establishment is beautifully decorated, with amazing beds and power showers that you will not want to get out of! Each room is individually named and has a welcome gift bag of locally made biscuits, fudge and chocolate, as well as complimentary tea or coffee and homemade cake on arrival. You will also find a little jar of Owens coffee, (decaf too), and Zuma hot chocolate, to drink during your stay in your room.
Breakfast is a sumptuous affair too, Janet and Mark, the owners, source their ingredients from the local market. Anything from kippers to asparagus instead of toast, to accompany your perfectly boiled soft eggs. If you are a vegetarian, Janet makes a special dish consisting of spinach, avocado, cherry tomatoes and chestnut mushrooms, all gently fried together with lemon juice and a selection of herbs and spices.
Tavistock itself is a wonderful place to visit, with Dartmoor just on the doorstep for fabulous walks and scenery. It is an ancient stannary town, and lies on the south west edge of Dartmoor. The name ‘Tavistock’ derives from ‘Tavy’, the River on which the town lies. Its importance was recognised when King Henry I granted a Market Charter in 1105. Sir Frances Drake was born just south of Tavistock, and there is a very fine statue of him not too far from the town centre. It has some lovely architecture of local stone, a wide range of interesting shops, a market, riverside park, leisure centre and theatre. Top all this off with beautiful countryside and a variety of National Trust properties, there is plenty to see and do during your stay.
Number 5ifty 8ight’s Dartmoor suite has a special offer on at the moment of 30% off your stay until Easter, so what are you waiting for? We love this B & B, and are thrilled they are customers of ours who are serving Owens coffee.
