The White Hart Hotel is a traditional old posting house at the centre of the small moorland town of Moretonhampstead set within the spectacular Dartmoor National Park. Under new ownership since early 2012, the White Hart Hotel dates back to 1639 and this historic Grade II listed building is being sympathetically refurbished to provide all modern comforts within a traditional setting. Our comfy sofa-filled lounge has a roaring log fire where you can relax and combine the delights of a traditional cream tea with the convenience of free wifi. An ideal base from which to explore this beautiful area of Devon, the White Hart has 20 well-appointed bedrooms in the main hotel and a further eight in a separate mews building. Our restaurant features the freshest local, seasonal produce cooked in a style that lets the quality of the ingredients speak for themselves. A free house, we stock a range of local real ales and have a handpicked wine list. DOGS - Dogs and Dartmoor go together. Dartmoor is great walking country and dogs are welcome everywhere in the hotel, except in the dining room. CYCLING - Dartmoor is a great area for cycling and we can offer secure bike storage, and have a drying room. SHOOTING - The area is popular for the sport of shooting and the Hotel is used regularly by shooting parties and we have a gun safe and have a drying room. GOLF - There are a number of good golf courses nearby and we can offer special rates with Bovey Castle Golf course, just 2 miles away, and Okehampton Golf Course, 12 miles away.

This was just a one night stay, and although had lunch there a few times was the first evening meal. It was just perfect! The hotel, an old post house, is a lovely quirky old building. Our room was very well equipped, with everything you could want, outdoing some 5 star hotels.

After hiking around in Dartmoor the whole day in rain, I needed a place to stay for the night, because my other stay was to far a drive. Got a nice big room right away and at the same time I got to order dinner, which I could enjoy 10 min later in the hotel bar. After a lovely

Me and my friends popped in for a drink and a chat. We loved the local gin they had to offer and the lounge. Cosy place to sit and catch up. The only downside was hearing the staff talking about other members of staff, this did make us feel uncomfortable.

Always a good choice for breakfast and well cooked dinners in the evening from their adequate menu. Rooms were comfortable, but as an old building it does not have air conditioning should you require it, nor a lift to the first floor. A comfy, friendly place to stay.

The parking is in the public car park but the town is small and safe.

It is a fantastic base for visiting beautiful Dartmoor at any time of year. Parking isn't a problem, the car parking is behind the hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful and we hope you have a lovely visit.

"If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room not facing The Square/Station Road."
"We stayed in the Annex which was lovely"
"Stay in the main building rather than the Mews. It's a little more expensive but worth it."
"The rooms situated at the Mews were very quite, so we were able to have a wonderful nights sleep."
"I stayed in a small double and found it very adequate and incredibly comfortable"
