Our Inspector's view

There’s a real sense of history at this charming waterside establishment, once a Tudor merchant's house, that is located a few steps from where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail on the Mayflower in 1621. Every effort is made to ensure guests have a relaxed and rewarding stay. A café and wine bar by day, the inn’s evening opening times vary, with a tapas menu available on selected nights. The bedrooms are comfortable and individually styled; bathrooms provide all the expected modern necessities with cosseting towels and quality toiletries. Breakfast is a generous affair, with a range of continental and cooked options, all showcasing the best local produce.

About the area

Discover Devon

With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.

Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them. 

Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
