We were looking for a hotel near Bude and Launceston and this hotel was perfect. I was a bit worried about a tourist staying at a golf course but there was no reason for concern. Staff at front desk and restaurant were very welcoming and friendly. Room was fantastic and beds were very comfortable. Tea and coffee and biscuits in room were a lovely touch. Sorry I can't recall her name but the waitress with the glasses who served us dinner and breakfast was amazing. Breakfast was included in price and included cold items and a lovely choice of delicious hot meals made fresh. Had the best chicken curry for dinner I have ever had. The front desk staff even fitted a few of our family members with a couple of clubs to hit a bucket of balls. All in all a great place to stay.

"Dorset Farm is in a lovely quiet rural location."
The staff were very friendly and helpful and it was a very good base for exploring local places of interest in both Cornwall and Devon, such as Lydford Gorge, Tintagel, Boscastle, and Dartmoor. There were plenty of places to eat nearby and we treated ourselves to a meal at The Springer Spaniel on our final night. Dorset Farm was very peaceful and as well as touring, we enjoyed exploring the hotel's many acres of farmland which had stunning views and a hide overlooking the River Tamar.
We arrived at 11pm having driven from London and were received very warmly and welcome to sit down and have a drink despite the pub being empty and ready to close.
The room was comfortable, a little dated (which we knew) but very clean and the bed was excellent (super soft sheets and towels!)
Food was great and so was the beer (excellent craft on offer for £2.50 from the small beer festival the previous weekend).
Full English was to die for and the stay was very cheap. 1h or less to the major attractions and very convenient for both Bude and Launceston.
Would absolutely stay again.
We stayed here on the way back from a week in Cornwall to break the journey up. We would have loved to stay longer - the venue is so relaxing with beautiful grounds to explore.
The hosts couldn't do enough, and we had tea on the river veranda on arrival with amazing biscuits, then fudge in the room. Room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. They also helped us to find somewhere to eat and a local taxi, and we had a lovely meal out.
Minor point was that we booked a balcony room and it wasn't clear from the pictures or description that it would only be a Juliet balcony. It seems the real balcony that is available is shared with other rooms and not private.
Would definitely stay again.
