About Fingals Bed & Breakfast

Fingals is for families who work hard all week and want to relax and enjoy hearty breakfasts before walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside, excursions to nearby Totnes and Dartmouth, boating and crabbing down on the river Dart, a game of tennis or a picnic in the garden followed by a good night's sleep.

Fingals is not your average child-friendly accommodation; do visit knowing that you couldn’t be any further away from the ‘corporate experience’ that you might encounter - this is family holiday quirkiness at its best. Fingals really might be your home from home – it’s relaxed, refined and real. Prepare to flop on arrival and completely switch off and enjoy your surroundings, which are stunning. This gorgeous boutique B & B is set up a country lane practically in the middle of nowhere and when we arrived was in a sun trap. I don’t want to build up your hopes as it is of course in Devon, and Devon is so green due to our British weather, but I would imagine even during the bleak mid-winter there will be warmth here. 

I don't like to gush over places but Fingals is a breath of fresh air - I hope that Richard and Sheila don't mind my saying that it's not quite perfect, which makes it exactly so.  There's loads of things to look at, a huge enclosed garden for the kids to scrabble about in and a marvellous chilled out quirky atmosphere to enjoy.

Choosing from three bed and breakfast en suite rooms (two of which inter-connect with room for two adults and two children) you are guaranteed a happy family time with space privately or communally to relax and play.  The sitting-room, in the old manor farm kitchen, comprises oak beams, wood panelling, antique carpets and an old inglenook fire - it's a room to get to know people or shut yourself off in a newspaper - either way it's a good adult zone. You will find lovely old fashioned things like jigsaw puzzles and board games in the big dresser - perfect entertainment for a soggy day by the fire. 

Breakfast is served in the original wood panelled dining-room and high chairs are available for little ones.  All food is sourced locally, is fresh and as organic as possible - a vegetarian option is always available - food prepared here has a very good reputation.

Bedrooms are all very interesting and comfortable - and as much as I dislike the word comfortable it's true, in fact the whole place is. There is a charming family suite for larger families which has inter-connecting rooms giving you a break from the kids at night. Children are also welcome to share your double room if necessary at a cost of £15 per night including breakfast.  Those under 3 stay for free with a one-off charge of £15 for their bed or cot. There are some lovely options if only 2 of you and a little one are holidaying so take a look around. 

Babysitters can be arranged but actually baby monitors work very well and the house is small, but if you are at all concerned and want to spend time downstairs after little ones have gone to bed Richard and Sheila will do their best to accommodate.
