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!

Totally Dartmoor. Small privately run bed and breakfast couldn't be more central on Dartmoor. An excellent choice for walkers. Home made evening meals in the dining room, and I know that the food is good. Dogs are very welcome to stay too. They are used to taking people 'off the road' who want to stay overnight, and then stay on for longer and longer. I'm not at all surprised.

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.

Most impressive conference room now at the rear of the hotel and this hotel has a sensible car park for guests.
