Lovely setting and nice room with lovely view of Dart river.very nice evening meal and relax in bar afterwards. Good English breakfast included. Dog tolerant rather than dog friendly though - no access to any public areas. Lovely setting in middle of moor, but don't rely on sat ab to get there!

The house was originally a late 19th century gentleman’s home, set slightly above the River Dart in a secluded part of the valley, in 36 acres of land on both sides of the river. The setting is beautiful, and the short stroll down to the river leads... More

Charming small hotel situated in its own grounds with stunning views. Excellent accomodation and both breakfast and evening meals of the highest standard. Meals should definitely not be missed. Ideal location for visiting Dartmoor.

I decided on a nice getaway deep in the middle of nowhere and this hotel certainly fits the bill sat right in the centre of Dartmoor. My partner is a vegan so I decided to email the hotel ahead of arrival to see if they can accommodate her requirements. I was promptly replied to with a menu and an option.... More

This was a comfortable base for walking, with beautiful grounds . The views from dining room were lovely and breakfast was a delight. Our room was warm, nicely furnished and we enjoyed the more vintage bath.

We had a happy stay here, and enjoyed our large room (Heron) with its lovely views. This is an unpretentious small hotel, but comfortable and well appointed without being what one might call luxurious or stylish. The food is good. We stayed three nights and all the meals were well cooked, with large portions designed to please walkers. Spicy tuna... More
