Hidden away down a private drive you really feel the peace when you arrive. Steve draws on his experience as a landlord before becoming a hotelier to provide a relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent.

Just spent 2 nights at the Lydgate House Hotel and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a break on Dartmoor. The grounds- some 36 acres or so, the location, really peaceful if that is what you are looking for, the accommodation, we stayed in the Dipper, and the food, all faultless. The only thing I would have liked... More

We stayed at Lydgate House for one evening and loved it. It was perfectly located for some lovely walks including one to the magical Wistmans Wood which is nearby. We stayed in 'Kingfisher' room which although a little on the small side was very nicely decorated with an extremely comfortable bed. The bathroom was clean with a lovely selection of... More

We have stayed three times and have found the hotel spot on in every way. The rooms are well furnished, some with wonderful views of the thundering East Dart: what a pleasure to fall asleep listening to the sounds of the river and being woken by birdsong. The lounge and bar is warm and comfortable and Steve runs the bar... More

This is the second time we have been here, but the first time with the present owners. It is still well worth going to. We stayed in Kingfisher, not as big as Heron, but cheaper, and a lovely room. The views from the hotel are great and the walks go in all directions. The food was excellent we had dinner... More

Having researched various hotels on Dartmoor we decided to stay at Lydgate House on our way to Maenporth in Cornwall. Lovely setting, very peaceful and a friendly welcome and chat about cricket! Bedroom, Heron, was a good size and comfortable. Meals were very acceptible and overall cost reasonable.

Just returned from a very brief but really enjoyable stay at Lydgate House. The welcome was really friendly and the hotel is ideally located for long or short walks in beautiful Dartmoor. We ate in the evening and whilst the prices aren't budget the food was excellent and exceeded expectations. Our room (Heron) was clean, bright, and comfortable with views... More
