Our Inspector's view

On the border of Devon and Cornwall, overlooking the famous Tamar Valley towards Bodmin Moor, The Horn of Plenty enjoys a long reputation as a luxurious bolt-hole going back more than 60 years. An elegant Regency mansion house converted into a privately owned country house hotel, its location close to the Dartmoor National Park makes it a popular spot for locals and visitors. The panoramic and uninterrupted views from the restaurant make for a stunning backdrop to enjoy the French-influenced British food, the majority of raw materials sourced within the county. Start with fresh and flavourful hand-picked crab teamed with lemon, gel cucumber, celery and robust crab bisque. It might be followed by perfectly cooked roast venison loin, pumpkin, salsify and a well-balanced red win jus. A correctly made pistachio crème brûlée is accompanied by vanilla ice cream and mixed berries with enough acidity to counter the richness. Enjoy pre-meal drinks on the terrace overlooking the well-manicured gardens.

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.
