Stayed one night on route northwards. The staff were all friendly and helpful and we had a lovely meal in the evening in the bar.The hotel was quite a bit further out of Bovey Tracey than we had realised. We had a room in the newer wing/annexe and had everything we needed in a clean and pleasant room (there seemed to be lots of rules in the guest info- seemed fitting for an old school!!)Our only criticism of the place is that the corridor/bridge linking the annexe to the main building is in urgent need of some attention/decoration-this lets down what is otherwise a very nice place to stay. We wondered if the bedrooms in the main building were probably the nicest though when we stayed the place was full.The breakfast like the bar food was very good.

Stumbled across the Edgemoor by chance after a very poor accommodation experience in Torquay. Having read the Tripadvisor reviews I was encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive feedback and the proactive approach of the management to any negative reviews. From my perspective it's how an owner handles such comments that matters, not that a negative review arises (that can happen to the best).

Having now experienced the Edgemoor myself, I can whole heartedly endorse the many 'excellent' reviews. The ambience of the hotel is calm and relaxed, and the staff deliver a good balance of friendly informality and efficient service. The bedrooms are a nice mix of country styling and contemporary presentation, and the lounge is welcoming.

However, it is the restaurant that pushes the envelope of the experience, both in terms of the atmosphere and food quality. The Edgemoor nudges at the boundaries of economy fine dining and inspired creativity. The food is presented wonderfully, the ingredients are first class, and the cooking delivered with care and attention. The staff are attentive but not overbearing, and you are encouraged to enjoy the moment.

For me the Edgemoor aspires to a standard that others in its class should aim for. It may not be to everyone's taste, and that's fine (we are all different). However, the owner, management and staff should be applauded for trying to do something imaginative and aspirational.

Keep up the good work!

Visiting relatives and our usual hotel was full. Found this lovely hotel on internet. The staff were really friendly and attentive and the room was full of character. Weather was good so we enjoyed afternoon tea on the terrace. Plenty of parking available.

We ate in the restaurant and are so glad we did. A superb meal. We had just returned form France and the food was as good as anything we had there.

This hotel isnt exactly cheap - but at the end of the day you get what you pay for. This was worth every penny and we will be returning.

Room Tip: They have seperate rooms for travellers with dogs.

Just attended my daughter's wedding at the Edgemoor and a more idyllic setting you would be hard pressed to find.
Lovely old school house that has retained all it's character; beautifully maintained gardens buzzing with bees and butterflies and clean, well appointed rooms. Top this with friendly, attentive staff and you have the perfect venue.
I can't comment on the food they serve from day to day as this was a wedding reception and we had a barbecue dinner in the garden. If the barbecue was anything to go by I don't think you need to worry too much on the food front. Breakfast was excellent.
Thank you Edgemoor for helping to make my daughter and new son-in-law's day so special and for being such wonderful hosts.

I booked this for my husbands 50th, just for a quiet night away. Perfect surroundings on the edge of Dartmoor, easy access to Widecombe in the Moor, where we ate in the evening. The room was spacious and clean, the bathroom was also large but I'm not sure it had been cleaned properly as I could feel a tide mark around the bath :-S Quiet locality and delicious breakfast too :-)

Took my grandmother for afternoon tea.

The staff made us really welcome and went out of their way to facilitated a level access.

The food was top notch and the afternoon was delightful!

Gran was a happy lady!
