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.
Award winning campsite with camping, holiday lodges, caravans and a Shepherd's Hut.

The Elephant's Nest Inn is a quintessentially English - and Devonshire - country pub. The 3 generously sized en-suite B&B rooms are located in a newly built extension. Beautifully furnished with solid oak floors and under floor heating, all rooms have large Vi-Spring beds, soft goosedown duvets and pillows and luxurious soft furnishings. Being located in as remote a place as it is, great emphasis is placed on good food, although the pretentious 'gastro pub' description will not be heard here! The garden at the Nest is a 'must see'.

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. The kids will love the playpark and the riverbank. Everyone loves the resident ducks. Fly fishing available.
Old fashioned courtesy in a quiet country house. Lovely garden especially at rhododendron time. Off road parking, and an easy drive to Tavistock. The Peter Tavy Inn is just up the road for handy evening meals. Dogs by arrangement but not in the house.
2½ miles from Chagford (last ½ mile private farm-lane) and 1½ from Drewsteignton, an idyllically situated, thatched cottage 200 yards from a very beautiful stretch of the River Teign (entrance to Fingle Gorge; Fingle Bridge, 1½ miles by footpath). Beautiful, good-sized and mostly completely secluded enclosed garden (trees, mown grass, stream and pond with waterfalls). Long views over the valley. Farmland and Nat. Trust woodland and heathland all round, Castle Drogo on the hilltop above.
Paradise for hyperactive kids of all ages. Campers who stay on the caravan park have free access to the adventure park which is bursting with Commando Assault course (for big and little children!), Pirate Ship, Toddlers beach, Toddlers Playground (Lilliput), Spiders web, Wooden play fort, Cows Udders, Snake Slides, Zip wires and Jungle Fun. Plenty of supervised play plus canoeing and Water Zorbs. Go for it !! Not that they welcome noisy teenagers. As their website quotes "If you are looking for late nights and wild parties, we would politely suggest you find an alternative venue!"
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.
