Booked in for afternoon tea. Cosy Dartmoor farmhouse with elements of Georgian splendour. Sumptuous cream tea with wonderful selection of sandwiches and homemade cakes. Hostess was welcoming and attentive. A truly lovely time.

Firstly the house, this was a beautiful building and the bedrooms were simply gorgeous with lovely furniture and furnishings and the view of Dartmoor were delightful.

This was a lovely bed and breakfast, perfectly located for wandering the local moors, a trip out to the Cornwall coast, and a day trip up to North Bovey for a hawking experience. We booked for 3 nights, wondering if at first there might not be enough to do, but we could have actually stayed a few more nights with... More

We booked four nights at Tor Royal as we'd a wedding reception to attend at the Nearby Two Bridges and thought that the proximity to Dartmoor would be good. The weather was not particularly kind to us, but we could not fault Tor Royal, nor Justine who looked after us so well. The house is brimming with character, rooms are... More

Tor Royal is a beautiful historic house in a stunning setting in the middle of Dartmoor. It has been tastefully restored and the rooms are absolutely beautiful. We did some great walks from the doorstep and Princetown with its couple of pubs serving good food is walking distance. What really makes Tor Royal is the proprietor Justine who is kind,... More

Ideally situated to explore Dartmoor on horseback, this historic farm is just perfect. When my daughter and granddaughter visited they were delighted to learn that we had booked them a hack across the moor. Even grandma joined them. Despite the weather being a little bit on the chilly side they thoroughly enjoyed the experience and vowed to repeat it on... More

An outstanding B&B with the added bonus of a fantastic stables/farm on site. Beautiful location & great base to visit other parts of Dartmoor &/or Plymouth. Highlights: breakfast was yummy, the Sherlock room was outstanding & the hosts made us feel at home. If you want to go pony trekking I highly recommend - ponies where happy and excellent steeds...

Tor Royal is a beautiful property located in the middle of the breathtaking moors. This was a bit of a splurge for us, but it was absolutely worth it (especially since I wanted to go riding on the moors). We were upgraded from the Lilly to the Wallace room due to some booking issue, and the room was gorgeous. It... More

We had an amazing drive across dartmoor to reach Tor Royal and when we arrived were met by peacocks, an inquisitive ram and the most architecturally interesting and beautiful home. We were made to feel so at home by host Justine who was so relaxed and flexible. Great breakfast with fresh, local produce which kept us going all day. Loved... More

I booked Tor Royal after attending a course there in February. My mum and I came down for a night as a surprise birthday stay and pony-ride for her. I’d met Justine before so I already knew she was lovely and welcoming, and when we got to our room there was nothing to let down either her or the tripadvisor... More
