Once leaving the main road in Liverton, we really could have been part of The Hound of The Baskervilles! However after following the sat nav round numerous bends,turns and ascents we arrived at the rock for dinner - parking is a little difficult as you have to use the road only. Inside it was lovely and warm with a very... More

We have stayed here several times since the '70s and it's always good. Situated in a nice quiet village with a cosy ambience. Service here is excellent with friendly staff who are always available for any help and advice required. Our four poster room was great and good to retreat back to after walking up and around nearby Haytor and... More

I can thoroughly recommend The Rock. Each room is individually decorated and has all every facility imaginable. The restaurant provides delicious fine dining using many locally sourced products. There is a lovely atmosphere and cheerful and helpful staff. My family have enjoyed the hospitality offered at The Rock over many years and it is consistently wonderful.
