We have just had afternoon tea at Tor Royal, which must be one of the best kept secrets in Devon. The owner is very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The tea itself was superb, in a great environment that really gives you the feeling of the moor.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 3 nights spent at Tor Royal. Breakfast was plentiful and of good quality. Justine was extremely welcoming and flexible with our requests. The main purpose of our visit was to attend a wedding at nearby Two Bridges but we also managed a trip to Buckland Abbey along with a short stop at the market town of... More

I had wonderful weekend with a 2 hour ride each day and I am hoping go back soon. I rode Boy and he was such a sweetheart and has an amazing canter. Everyone there were really friendly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to ride out on the moors during the summer. x

We had a lovely stay here in May for 3 nights. It's a wonderful big farm steeped in history in a handy location for lots of lovely walks on the moor. We had a nice clean big family room on the top floor which had a view out onto the moor, en suite, TV, tea and coffee facilities and a... More

Sorry about the heating, I would have put it on if you had asked, sometimes it is hot in the rest of the house, but not so good in some rooms, depending on where if anywhere the sun has been.. We do not like out guests to be chilly - or too hot! More

Very hearty reception, typical English breakfast, individual, cosy rooms. The environment is lovely, an old manor, now used as Hotel and stables. Lovely view over the moor. No problem with parking. Reservation recommended (they don't have that many rooms). You can start your hike in the moor directly from the hotel. They are very helpful, recommended a really nice hiking... More

We very much enjoyed our High Tea which we felt was excellent value for money. Lovely selection of cakes and as much tea and coffee as you like. The host was very accommodating. We will definitely return. Would recommend.

We went pony trekking with Tor Royal Stables this morning. It was a wonderful morning. There were myself, my husband, daughter Charlotte (9) and son Dominic (6). We all are complete horse novices! Adele from Tor Royal led Dominic's horse, instilling confidence in all of us. The route was great, Dartmor tracks and moorland, (no roads at all) with staggeringly... More

Literally. Given the colourful history of the farm as a hangout of Edward VIII and Wallace Simpson, it is almost surprising that there is no charge for entry! We stayed for two nights and it was right up our street - really could not recommend it highly enough! We enjoyed the comfort of the recently refurbed room, understated elegance of... More

We stayed for one night in May. The setting is lovely and peaceful and it was really nice to open the window to see ponies grazing out on the lawn! We stayed in one of the rooms on the top level which had a lot of character and was clean and warm. A great coffee, tea and biscuit selection in... More
