I had two nights at the Bearslake Inn, in the Garden Room. I was there to explore Dartmoor and it's a good spot to do that from, being right on the edge of a moor. Checkin was pleasant and efficient. The room was large and well furnished, with WiFi running from a Homeplug in the room (nice one!). The bathroom... More

There is no where better to go if you are in the area. We have used this hotel many times because it has the complete package with comfortable rooms, excellent food, cooked exactly as requested, and friendly staff.

We stayed here for one night with my Father-in-Law in the 'Longhouse' room. A nice sized room with comfortable Double bed in the main room area and two singles which where in an annex to one side of the main room. The room also had its own en suite, which was also of a good size. The room has a... More

13th century "longhouse" complete with thatched roof and authentic building structure (not a straight wall in the place) now operating as pub come inn come hotel, and I'm pleased to say it pulls all of it off very well indeed. Food, service, room, setting, garden, parking, all excellent. Situated in what seems to be the middle of Dartmoor, with views... More

My family and I enjoyed a well deserved rest and lunch here whilst cycling the Granite Way. The food was excellent, staff friendly and setting picturesque. We didn't see the accommodation but it seemed like somewhere we'd like to come for a weekend get away (without the kids!).

Visited the Bearslake Inn for lunch whilst on holiday in the area. A lovely thatched pub on the edge of Dartmoor which is a family business. The service and the food were excellent with lots of choice, we enjoyed it so much we made a point of going back! Nothing was too much trouble and the views of the countryside... More

Sitting in the hamlet of Lake on the very edge of the north-west corner of Dartmoor this beautiful thatched pub was originally a traditional Devon longhouse. It has been carefully converted into a welcoming pub with lots of different cosy rooms all with many of the original features preserved. The owners are very proud of the buildings’ history as the...
