We stayed at Lydgate House for one evening and loved it. It was perfectly located for some lovely walks including one to the magical Wistmans Wood which is nearby. We stayed in 'Kingfisher' room which although a little on the small side was very nicely decorated with an extremely comfortable bed. The bathroom was clean with a lovely selection of...

We have stayed three times and have found the hotel spot on in every way. The rooms are well furnished, some with wonderful views of the thundering East Dart: what a pleasure to fall asleep listening to the sounds of the river and being woken by birdsong. The lounge and bar is warm and comfortable and Steve runs the bar...

This is the second time we have been here, but the first time with the present owners. It is still well worth going to. We stayed in Kingfisher, not as big as Heron, but cheaper, and a lovely room. The views from the hotel are great and the walks go in all directions. The food was excellent we had dinner...

Having researched various hotels on Dartmoor we decided to stay at Lydgate House on our way to Maenporth in Cornwall. Lovely setting, very peaceful and a friendly welcome and chat about cricket! Bedroom, Heron, was a good size and comfortable. Meals were very acceptible and overall cost reasonable.

Just returned from a very brief but really enjoyable stay at Lydgate House. The welcome was really friendly and the hotel is ideally located for long or short walks in beautiful Dartmoor. We ate in the evening and whilst the prices aren't budget the food was excellent and exceeded expectations. Our room (Heron) was clean, bright, and comfortable with views...

We just stayed here for one night, in March 2013. We were greeted with a freshly made cream tea - with the best scones I've ever tasted, (but don't tell my Mum), had a lovely spacious room (Dipper), and an amazing breakfast. We could have eaten our evening meal at the hotel, but despite the amazing looking menu which was...

I stayed in this hotel during March 2013. It was a lovely warm hotel with amazing views of Dartmoor. The room was very nice - named Kingfisher - and the view over the valley and the river was superb! The breakfast was extremely good. The setting was in the conservatory which again looked out over the valley. It is a...

We stayed at Lydgate house a couple of summers ago when Doug and Anna were running it and had a lovely time. This time we thought we'd just pop down for a night to recover from New Year celebrations, and to see how it had fared under new ownership. We weren't disappointed, even though we were the only guests that...
