Our Inspector's View

Dating back to the 12th century, there is a tangible sense of the past at this fascinating inn. Still very much the village local, it was first licensed in 1477 and boasts a standing stone dating back some 5,000 years. Today, the inn blends contemporary styling with historic features. Bedrooms have plenty of character and no two are alike; some of the rooms have four-posters. The stylish restaurant offers accomplished cuisine with a range of dishes that make good use of high quality, local produce. In summer, meals can be enjoyed in the extensive garden that has stunning views of Dartmoor.

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.
