Dunkery Beacon is a remodel, by the very new owners, of a 1920's fox hunting lodge. They have poured in buckets of sweat equity, resulting in a very comfortable, unpretentious inn looking out at the moor hilltop. Much work remains to be done. Our mistake was to stay only one night on our drive South, an insult to the hotel and a waste of driving time getting to the remote location on narrow single lane roads. The hotel is an ideal base for walkers but not pass-through drivers.
John, the owner, is also the cook and provides an excellent breakfast. A major objection I have is no dinner served Sunday through Tuesday. I detest having to drive miles to dinner after a long day touring, especially when I must refuse a drink and a glass of wine because I am driving.
