Say hello to Karen and the happy staff at the White Hart Hotel. They are keen to welcome you to this elegant Grade II listed building at this important crossroads on the moor. Dating back as far as 1639 when it was a coaching Inn, it has a range of very comfortable bedrooms, no two the same. I especially like the large reception lounge, which is a great place for locals to drop in for a quality coffee. The menu has recently brought up to date and diners can enjoy a local jazz band here some Sunday lunchtimes.
On the very South Westerly tip of Dartmoor with views over Buckland Monochorum and on towards the Tamar valley. Quiet, peaceful, well off the beaten track.

Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, sitting room/dining area/kitchen all in one with patio doors overlooking the garden. Boot room off with washing machine, storage etc. Central heating. Small TV. All fairly brief, but so is the price. Close to Buckland Abbey, Morwellham Quay, the Garden House, and easy travelling to Yelverton, with Tavistock and Plymouth beyond
