What a smashing place!!! It is tucked away in the Devon countryside with commanding views of the valley and overlooking hills. On approach, you are greeted by a grand looking country house with accompanying multileveled garden, absolutely perfect for receiving wedding guests. Inside is ample room for a party of 80 or so people with a small bar - this... More

We have eaten at the Horn of Plenty several times and always found it excellent. This time we decided to book bed and breakfast so that we did not have to drive home afterwards and so could enjoy a drink! Also we were celebrating our wedding Anniversary and were taking my sister and brother-in-law as a gift for their Diamond... More

It is small enough to be peaceful and it is beautiful with the valley views. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the food is just fantastic, so delicious and artistic, too. My room, no 16 was fine, modern with a good bed. I´d love to come back.

The setting of this hotel / restaurant is beautiful with views over a stunning valley. We did not stay in the hotel overnight so I cannot comment on the rooms but the restaurant and public areas were pleasant and stylishly decorated. The dining room has superb views over the valley and is a charming place to eat lunch. Service was... More

Stayed 2 nights on the way back from holiday in Cornwall. This is our third visit. Room #1 was big and comfortable, though the bathroom could do with some updating. In fact the hotel is a mix of charming and slightly odd (e.g. the 3 small tables in the library are out of place and detract from the room's ambience).... More

This restaurant is excellently located with wonderful views of the Tamar valley. It is fairly small and therefore has a homely atmosphere, which we much prefer to larger establishments. The staff are superbly attentive without being intrusive and the food is truly wonderful. We have lunched here several times and never been disappointed. Today, we had a voucher for an... More

My husband and I stayed for my birthday in August 2014 for a bit of quiet time. I had looked around with a view to getting married here in the past and have always wanted to stay since- and we were glad we did! We were escorted straight to our room when we arrived. Our room had been upgraded which... More

My wife and I spent two nights at the Horn of Plenty on our way back from the South Coast. We stayed in a newly built block with an excellent room with a large balcony overlooking the Tamar Valley. The staff were very helpful in every respect and the dining was of the highest standard and the Tasting Menu recommended.... More

It was a visit for a delicious birthday celebration cream tea. Very comfortable in the lounge. Very good tea and scones beautifully presented. Staff very attentive. I have been for lunch on several occasions and would certainly recommend a visit. It would be worth booking.

We were combining this with a falconry experience, run from the hotel by Tom Buncle. We stayed the night before on a Sunday deal: excellent value. Our room was in the outbuilding but had a small balcony with 2 chairs, perfect for relaxing after the journey. Facilities in the room were good: tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and a spacious bathroom.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Horn of Plenty has been thrilling guests for over 40 years with some of the South West's very best food, drink and accommodation. This small Country House Hotel and Restaurant stands high on a hill, overlooking 5 acres of beautiful gardens and wild orchards, and beyond that, the breathtaking scenery of the Tamar Valley. Views are hard to match. 16 Stylishly furnished en-suite bedrooms offer outstanding comfort and luxury. Most have balconies overlooking the valley. The heart of The Horn of Plenty is the kitchen, and a truly memorable dining experience is guaranteed. The restaurant was awarded double gold in the 2014 "Taste of the West" awards, and "Best Fine Dining Restaurant in Devon" for 2012. It has 2 AA rosettes for outstanding food, with local provenance high on the agenda. Service is everything you'd hope for: warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful, yet always professional. ... more   less
