The setting is beautiful, and the short stroll down to the river leads...

Charming small hotel situated in its own grounds with stunning views. Excellent accomodation and both breakfast and evening meals of the highest standard. Meals should definitely not be missed. Ideal location for visiting Dartmoor.

This was a comfortable base for walking, with beautiful grounds . The views from dining room were lovely and breakfast was a delight. Our room was warm, nicely furnished and we enjoyed the more vintage bath.

We had a happy stay here, and enjoyed our large room (Heron) with its lovely views. This is an unpretentious small hotel, but comfortable and well appointed without being what one might call luxurious or stylish. The food is good. We stayed three nights and all the meals were well cooked, with large portions designed to please walkers. Spicy tuna...
