A country house hotel with smart restaurant open to non residents. I can recommend the bar which has a real fire and a good range of local ales and whiskey, for lunch after walking on nearby Haytor Rocks. Contemporary style in the bedrooms and throughout the hotel. Super gardens. Off road car park. Licenced for weddings.
Most of the bedrooms at this established hotel in the centre of Dartmoor boast a four poster bed, spa bath and Moorland views. Popular for weddings at any time of year and a good base for walks, especially to Wistman's Wood a fabled treat nearby. Eat in either the Tors Restaurant or the hotel lounge bar in front of a real fire. Wonderful setting with bags of history. The hotel can accommodate conferences for up to 170 with 100 car parking spaces. Check the hotel website for many breaks, offers, Murder Mystery weekends, dancing holidays, live music and birthday treats.
Julia and Martin have a quality hideaway here, alongside the main house, but entirely separate, this little cottage is perfect for two. With a king size bed under oak beams and beautiful country garden plus small lake, this has to be one of my top recommendations for a romantic honeymoon on Dartmoor. The pleasant shower room is on the ground floor as the bedroom takes up most of the space up aloft. The kitchen is super too. I love it. Close enough for a steam train ride on the South Devon Railway.
Eastwrey Barton is a delightful Georgian country house providing the perfect country retreat..There are some super rooms with equally super bathrooms here at Eastwrey Barton.

Enjoy your gin and tonic on the south facing terrace taking in the view of the large attractive well tended garden. Off road car park.

Tavistock's most established hotel and well worth visiting for good food and accommodation. Generously sized bedrooms including some four posters choices, family rooms and pet friendly options. There's an easy to use 'check availability' feature on the hotel website but don't forget to ring and ask if they have any last minute deals - you could benefit from a late deal. Most impressive conference room now at the rear of the hotel and this hotel has a sensible car park for guests.
