Lovely family friendly B&B/room only accommodation at The Oratory, Princetown, Dartmoor. The Chapel was once the Chapel of St John Vianney; it is light and spacious and benefits from being self-contained with its own private entrance, a large bathroom, sofas and a kitchenette. It makes a fantastic base for exploring the moor and the surrounding areas. We are very much family orientated, and welcome dogs as we have two happy hounds ourselves.

"Exceeded expectations"
We had the quadruple room named the Chapel Annex for 2 nights to visit family in Tavistock. We were travelling with 2 teenagers & our small dog. We were made very welcome & the room was very spacious & well equipped so we could provide our own breakfast. The owners even did our washing up! Our sons had full sized single beds (a daybed & truckle beneath) & there was an additional sofa to watch TV. The bathroom was very luxurious with a roll top bath, separate cascade shower & under floor heating. Read less
Likes:
We liked the welcome, the spacious room and the luxurious bathroom in a very convenient location for us. We were also able to bring our family dog.

"Ideal Spot"
Great little find in Princetown. We visit Princetown regularly to see relatives and The Oratory self catering apartment is perfect for our family stay. The bathroom is particularly lovely and the sleeping facilities are good and comfortable for the four of us. Some may find the cooking equipment simple but have been fine for us on the occasions we have used the property. Read less
Likes:
It's location is perfect for us, making our stay easy to visit relatives. The bathroom is a particular highlight. Jeanette who runs The Oratory is also very friendly and always on hand where needed.
Dislikes:
The only thing I think would benefit this property is having a sink in the main space to wash dishes. Currently guests have to use the bathroom sink.
Response from The Oratory B&B:
It was lovely to see you again, and many thanks for your review and feedback. We are closing through December to complete a refurbishment of The The Chapel, which we are very much looking forward to. We would love to install a fully equipped kitchen, to include a sink, but we are unable to due to local authority and planning constraints. However, I am more than happy to put all of the dirty dishes through The Oratory's dishwasher, and do so for many guests who prefer to not use the bathroom sink

Bed & Continental Breakfast or Self Catering - its your choice. Located in Princetown, we are wonderfully positioned for exploring Dartmoor as well as further afield into the rest of Devon and Cornwall.

The Chapel sleeps up to four, and is accessed through its own private entrance, with the hall leading to the main split level room. The upper mezzanine area is a spacious double bedroom and the lower area a lounge/kitchenette in which the sofa can extend into two single beds. Also accessed from the hall is a large, light, airy bathroom with double-ended deep bath, separate shower and underfloor heating.

There are local maps and books in The Chapel if you need any help in planning your stay with us, as well as various novels if you wish to spend any time indoors. Extra beds/cots can be put in the room on request. Guests are welcome to use the garden, please note we do have a few covered small ponds, so we ask children to be accompanied. Dogs are welcome, and we have a special box of goodies to make any four-legged friends feel at home.

Princetown is ideally situated for walkers. The town is overlooked by the North Hessary Tor and is close to Fox Tor Mires, said to be the inspiration for the Grimpen Mire in Sir Arthur Doyle's novel "The Hound of the Baskervilles". The Oratory is also within easy reach of various tourist attractions including the Dartmoor Miniature Pony Centre and Lydford Gorge. Many adventure activities are also available nearby including balloon flights, climbing, canoeing and caving. The lovely market town of Tavistock is 6 miles away
