Intimate Country House in the Heart of Dartmoor. Generous bedrooms, most with views. Well stocked bar. Excellent restaurant open to non residents and top fishing in the River Dart close by. Shepherd's Hut recently added as an extra bedroom for a romantic outdoor experience. Do see my review where I rave about this hotel.
With views all around, this is a happy family house with pets and a country living lifestyle.... Say hello to 'Egg' the parrot, choose a good book and take a tray of tea into the garden. It's a place to relax. Legendary breakfasts cooked on the Aga. Walks up to Meldon Common with stunning Dartmoor views.
Spreyton is just a five minute drive from the A30 dual carriageway into Cornwall. Jan and Dennis at The Cobbles love to share their wonderful home with guests.

Dogs stay free at this very dog-friendly bed and breakfast.
Down Cottage is a delightful granite cottage in an idyllic setting with stunning views across Dartmoor. Part of a magnificent estate built in 1911 for the Jameson whisky family, Down Cottage sleeps four people and offers the perfect mix of luxury and seclusion. Set just 1.5 miles outside the pretty Stannary town of Chagford, it’s a great base for walking on Dartmoor and for generally relaxing and getting away from absolutely everything!
A country house hotel with smart restaurant open to non residents. I can recommend the bar which has a real fire and a good range of local ales and whiskey, for lunch after walking on nearby Haytor Rocks. Contemporary style in the bedrooms and throughout the hotel. Super gardens. Off road car park. Licenced for weddings.

3 miles out of Tavistock, Susie Pope offers bed and breakfast in a wing of her lovely home. I loved it and immediately thought it was ideal for a honeymoon. A beautiful dual aspect double room with a cute smaller twin room beyond. Private bathroom recently updated. Your own front door, that opens on to the sunniest of balconies overlooking the pretty garden, full of established trees, primroses, bluebells, daffodils and plenty of birdsong going on as I walked round. Breakfast is served within the house in a cosy little sitting room. Walks out on to the Moor and foodie places around. Very nice indeed.
