We stayed here for one night before travelling onto the Devon coast. We would love to return and stay for longer as we so enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Lydgate House. All the furnishings and facilities were very well looked after. We stayed in Kingfisher room, which had an excellent view of the river and was comfortable for a...

The location is exceptional, the views from the Heron room where we stayed are really lovely over the East Dart river. Excellent walks from the door. The evening meal and breakfast were both first class.

I stayed here in early March; a very quiet weekend. The hotel is beautifully kept and clean. Breakfast in the conservatory overlooking the river and moor is gorgeous. I stayed here many years ago & it's al slightly smarter but still very relaxed & welcoming. Breakfast was gorgeous. Despite being the only guest, the room and whole hotel was warm...

Stayed here with all my family for my wedding weekend. Steve and Karen were fantastic and helped to keep everyone happy and relaxed, from a delicious evening meal, cream teas, well stocked bar and spotless rooms. The beautiful setting was a perfect backdrop for the morning photos. Great position, in easy walking distance to Postbridge pub, shop and church! Thank...

Although we did not strictly stay within the hotel we were adjacent staying within the Cottage that is on site, Swallow Cottage. The cottage was fantastic, well equipped spacious and very clean. The owners were extremely polite and accommodating and the freshly baked scones upon arrival was a lovely touch. We traveled in a group of 4 plus a dog,...

This was the highlight of our tour of Devon. A beautiful house set back amongst acres of woodland. Very secluded! The room was pitch black at night. Cosy little bar and sumptuous breakfast. Very spacious room. Lovely friendly dog! Would definitely stay here again.

Before we booked this hotel earlier this year, we looked at Tripadviser and found that virtually everyone gave brilliant reviews. Often, high expectations don't match reality but Lydgate House is an incredible exception. This hotel is a real gem, a peaceful place with great views over the river Dart and the moor. The owners, Steve and Karen, go out of...

If you like seclusion and a quiet place to stay with top quality food this is the place. Absolutely brilliant. 7 rooms with some ensuite and spotlessly clean. The food is absolutely stunning. We had Bream for dinner and is was spectacular. I cannot recommend this place highly enough

Thank you very much for your kind review. Karen and I are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were impressed with the food. Just to clarify all 7 of our rooms are en suite with toilet and either bath or shower. The extra bathroom you probably observed, not far from your room, is a spare one , which can...

After searching for dog friendly hotels in Dartmoor, we chose to visit Lydgate House. Set in beautiful surroundings we wanted for nothing. Attentive service and amazing food. Better than other 5 star hotels we've visited. Highly recommended!

Reviewed 11 August 2016

Evening meal was excellent. Room average as was breakfast next morning. Dogs only allowed in rooms so not really dog friendly as advertised. Dogs not allowed in dining room okay get that not everyone wants dogs around while they're eating. But disappointing not allowed with you in bar for an evening drink. Good views and walks on doorstep.
