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

The hotel is tucked away down a private drive/footpath with plenty of parking but no noise from passing traffic. It's quiet, secluded, has great views, and several walks lead from the door. I stayed on a Sunday night, so no meals, but easy to walk to the Postbridge inn (and I saw tawny owls on the way back). My room... More

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
