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

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.
