Called in recently whilst on a VW touring holiday. Landlord and locals very friendly and service was excellent. Plenty of choice with ales & wines etc. A good menu was available and prices were good. Food was well presented and very tasty. Will definitely visit again if in the area.

After a healthy Sunday walk around the Lustleigh Cleave, the Cromwell was the perfect place to retire to for food and liquid refreshment, A large busy tavern, where you can eat in the bar or the resturant, with a wide selection of real ales.

Received a warm welcome from friendly staff who gave a very good service. Stayed for one night, had an evening meal and breakfast which was first class. The room was clean and tidy. Easy to find, just off the A38 and had large car park.

Thank you for your review. Not sure why there was a white bread shortage. Our staff would have only been too happy to top the basket up. There are two toasters, one is slower and one is brand new. Hope to see you again.

We were looking for a place on the eastern side of Dartmoor. Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we picked the Cromwell Arms and were happy that we did. Room 9 on the top floor is advertised as not recommended for the elderly. At 77, I don't consider myself too elderly, and we wanted the kingsized bed so that was our choice....

Had a very uncomfortable night due to a very narrow 4'6" bouncy bed, room very small and no room in shower room to put out our toiletries, really difficult when you wear contact lenses and have several bottles, containers and glasses to juggle with.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cromwell Arms is just a 5 minute drive off the A38, being ideally located on the edge of Dartmoor and in close proximity to the Heathfield Industrial Estate.The town of Bovey Tracey, also known as the Gateway to the Moor, offers easy access to endless countryside and attractions and is a fantastic place from which to explore the whole region, from the moors, tors and villages, to the beaches and seaside towns of Devon and the rest of the South West of England. With Exeter, Plymouth and Newton Abbot easily accessible from here and being only 10 miles away from the sea, our location is an ideal stop over for a business trip, a weekend break or for longer staying guests holidaying in sunny Devon. The 17th century oak beamed coaching inn is a family run award winning* establishment in the heart of the town and offers 14 tastefully,comfortable en-suite bedrooms. One of which is a family room that can sleep up to 6 people comfortably. We have Wifi throughout the main building, a lawned beer garden with a pagoda and decking for those warm sunny days and two log fires to warm you on those cosy winter nights. We even have some chickens to say hello to! So, whether you are on holiday, on business or just passing through, a visit here is highly recommended. Dogs are welcome to stay too.
