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.

Tavistock's most established hotel and well worth visiting for good food and accommodation. Generously sized bedrooms including some four posters choices, family rooms and pet friendly options. There's an easy to use 'check availability' feature on the hotel website but don't forget to ring and ask if they have any last minute deals - you could benefit from a late deal. Most impressive conference room now at the rear of the hotel and this hotel has a sensible car park for guests.
Short toddle from centre of Moretonhampstead town. Perfect for bookworms as the house is stacked with great books. My idea of comfort. Guaranteed good breakfast as Victoria is a good cook. Victoria offers a single whenever available. This accommodation is not suitable for small children or any size dogs, sorry. Parking is on street or in one of 2 car parks within 3 minute walk.

The bar at this village inn at South Zeal has been open to the public for an amazing 536 years. Landlords Simon and Lyn Powell plan to make it one of the chosen Dartmoor favourites. With fabulous mullioned windows, it is at the very centre of the annual Dartmoor Folk Festival which takes place each August. The newly refurbished bedrooms and bathrooms are all very impressive. Mervyn the cat takes pride of place in the bar. The 4 poster beds are impressive.

2 bedroom and 3 bedroom timber clad lodges in this quiet quality campsite in a most picturesque setting alongside the River Tavy. A delightful family run site which has 125 pitches for camping and touring caravans, some static caravans and these 2 upmarket lodges. I went along to see inside them on a cold January day and was very impressed. They are modern, warm and spacious, light and spotlessly clean. Very swish indeed. Well equipped with everything from microwave to outside folding chairs to make the most of the relaxing verandah. Cox Tor has a family bathroom with shower and bath, and there is an en-suite shower room in the double bedroom. Electricity and bed linen included - just bring your own towels and tea towels.

Close to Castle Drogo. Charming house with garden to match. Elegant Bed and breakfast in truly excellent walking country. Tim has 3 gorgeous rooms on offer, 2 en-suites and one with a private bathroom. All rooms overlook the beautiful garden.
Julia and Martin have a quality hideaway here, alongside the main house, but entirely separate, this little cottage is perfect for two. With a king size bed under oak beams and beautiful country garden plus small lake, this has to be one of my top recommendations for a romantic honeymoon on Dartmoor. The pleasant shower room is on the ground floor as the bedroom takes up most of the space up aloft. The kitchen is super too. I love it. Close enough for a steam train ride on the South Devon Railway.
