Dogs love Dartmoor: there's so much to sniff and explore here, from long walks over the high moors to gentle walks through bluebell woods and across open grassland. Choose a place to stay where dogs are welcome; with a fenced garden, or by the number of dogs you will be bringing. Don't forget to visit our Dog Blog too!

There are 14 bedrooms at the Cromwell Arms in the heart of Bovey Tracey. One of them is a family room that can sleep up to 6, and the thing that I like is that they offer this room as "ideal for a group of people who are on a budget and don't mind sharing." What a wonderful way of putting it! Many groups of walkers are on a budget, so it's right, this is a good option. Add to that the fact that the pub offers good food, a pub quiz every Tuesday AND THAT there is also a therapy room for aromatherapy massage, reflexology and Reiki natural healing, then this looks just the place for a few nights away doesn't it?
