Chagford On the north of Dartmoor with easy access from the A30 and A382.
On the Two Moors Way coast to coast footpath, Chagford is my top recommendation for a walking holiday base
on Dartmoor. A most attractive 'Stannary town', which means that the tin miners used to bring their tin to be
assayed, weighed and sold here. Most locals think of it as a village although it has two banks, four pubs and several
places for tea, coffee and a slice of cake. Plus two of most amazing hardware shops, Bowden's and Webbers which
between them sell absolutely everything you need from an ironmongers, including fork handles and 4 candles !
Each Friday morning you will find a busy little Flea Market in the Jubilee Hall next to the car park. Castle Drogo
the last castle to be built in England, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, sits high above the River Teign valley to
the north within the most breathtaking setting. Stand outside the Three Crowns when you are in town and you
will see the castle sitting high on the gorge, beyond the ancient graveyard. All very photogenic. Do find time to see
inside the 15th century church where the carved screen and fine stained glass windows are utterly beautiful.
To eat in town take a look at my food reviews for The Three Crowns Hotel, Gidleigh Park,
The Mill End Hotel, and the Northmore Arms. ££ Find my Dartmoor discount vouchers page.
Utterly top of the range hotel. Fine dining with fabulous bedrooms. Spa bathroom if you want, and how about side by side
baths for companionable guests? This luxury hotel surrounded by wonderful gardens and the best Dartmoor scenery.
Differing package rates throughout the year. Right now the hotel is offering a Winter Escape deal with a dinner,
bed and breakfast offer starting at £495 for 2 for 1 night. They invite you to explore the picturesque grounds with a bracing walk
or view the scenery from the comfort of a cosy armchair. During the evening dine on exquisite cuisine with fine wine.
This hotel at the centre of Chagford has been undergoing a complete refurb for the last 2 years and the locals have been holding
their breath. "Would it be worth the wait?" Well, I can tell you right now, the answer is most definitely YES. Sally the friendly
manageress proudly showed me round on July 23rd and I took lots of photos, so do read my accommodation review.
I heartily recommend you stay here, or call in for coffee in the ultra swish glass topped bar at the rear.
This smiley waitress is local girl Lizzie.
Normal prices £125, £140 + £190 per room. BUT DO ring the hotel to ask for last minute deals.

Small but cosy self catering unit with a massive view. A cute hideaway with deer through the window and wildlife all around. Wendy and Dennis are horse friendly folk, so livery is available. This is a place for just 2 adults with a very definite non smoking rule. The living room and bedroom are both up steep stairs, so NO CHILDREN and it would be difficult for the less able bodied. The drive is not smooth, but the let is right on the Two Moors Way and the Mariner's Way so would be an excellent base. Dogs by arrangement with the owners. You will need to discuss your dog's nature before you come.
Perfect for visiting nearby Castle Drogo, this AA 4 pennant is for ADULTS ONLY. Camping, tourers, and dogs all welcome.
