My husband and I had a wonderful long weekend for our anniversary. The location is superb - easy to find, amenities nearby and right in the centre of Dartmoor. The situation is stunning and we spent a morning exploring the grounds which were beautiful. The hotel was great and definitely geared up for guests with ample information on things to... More

We had a happy stay here, and enjoyed our large room (Heron) with its lovely views. This is an unpretentious small hotel, but comfortable and well appointed without being what one might call luxurious or stylish. The food is good. We stayed three nights and all the meals were well cooked, with large portions designed to please walkers. Spicy tuna... More

I have been to this little delightful hotel twice now. Nestled on the side of the Dart valley it is a charming small hotel surrounded by woodland and with nothing to disturb the peace bar the rush and tumble of the River Dart as it rushes on down the valley. The hotel rooms come in various sizes, they are nicely... More

I booked this little hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary - having found it via Alistair Sawday. Very welcoming host and delightful cosy and very comfortable room. Fresh milk for our tea which for me is always a good sign. Absolutely delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant - sadly only one other couple dining there so a little quiet but... More

This is a lovely small hotel situated at the end of a narrow unmade road in the heart of Dartmoor and on the banks of the East Dart River. I got a warm welcome from the owner on arrival. The rooms are all named after Dartmoor birds; mine was the House Martin which was clean, tastefully furnished, with a very... More

Lydgate House is situated in Postbridge which is right out on the moor. The hotel is well sign posted and is found at the end of a narrow track. The location is beautiful with a river running at the bottom of the bank on which the house is situated. There is good car parking. We stayed in Dipper during a... More

We stayed at Lydgate House overnight whilst visiting family in the area. We had the Kingfisher room which was lovely - a very comfortable bed and an amazing view of the river from the window. The bathroom was a bit on the small side, but was equipped with decent toiletries and clean towels. If you sleep with the windows open... More
