After a long day of driving and walking I checked into the Lydgate hotel. My room was very clean,cozy with everything I needed. The grounds are great I took a walk with amazing views. Decided to have my evening meal in the local pub. Breakfast was great the next day with a great choice and stunning view. The only down... More

I had a brief stop here with my partner overnight on the way home from Plymouth. It is in a stunning location, away from the main road (there is a sign to a private track). There is a view out on to the moor, and lots of local wildlife to watch at breakfast. The kitchen was closed on Sundays and... More

If you are looking for a holiday in Dartmoor, it would be hard to better the location of this hotel, right by the Dart and well away from the roads. The only sound is the water rushing along and tumbling over the rocks. The hotel itself is comfortable, but I would hardly rate it as luxurious, as is described on... More

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful small hotel for four nights Monday to Friday. We were made very welcome. The rooms are tastefully furnished and all have a small fridge either in the room or on the landing outside. There are toiletries and other little additions like flannels in the bathroom/shower rooms. Each room has tea/coffee making facilities... More

I booked this hotel last minute on the day and the room was held for me and my two dogs. This immaculate hotel is excellent value for money and you can't beat the location. Only problem is the phone signal but what do you expect in Dartmoor! Breakfast was delicious and although I didn't experience dinner I was advised a... More

Lydgate House is set in a tranquil valley in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, close to Postbridge. It is a small country house hotel next to the East Dart River, run by the owners with parking for several cars. On arrival we were invited to ring the bell and enter and met by Stephen in a characterful hallway,... More

It's about time after about twelve years staying here that I reviewed the place.... the first thing is that it's quiet. Apart from the river. And the birds. Peace comes dropping slow. It's beautifully furnished and finished and maintained and it all ticks nicely. The welcome is good and includes tea and cake, never mind the pleasantries. Bedrooms good... if... More
