Eastwrey Barton set in a beautiful Dartmoor valley
Thousands of people will have driven past this house with it's vantage point location over the magnificent Wray valley and wondered what it's like on the inside.
Here are the photos for you to see how very pleasant it is. Travelling from Bovey Tracey
to Moretonhampstead along the A382 you see the hotel face on. What you don't see
unless you are sitting up high in a coach, is the lovely garden at the front, and hidden
away at the top of these steps is a shaded car park with plenty of turning space.
It's a charming garden with an impressive countryside view. Sharon and Patrick who own the hotel do
not take pets, so you can enjoy a quiet toddle over the lawns or enjoy your tea on the south facing terrace.
Or perhaps you might prefer this smart guest lounge. Help yourself to a book from the full bookcase.
How about this for a sun room? Once again the view is great. This hotel would be my suggestion for
a family get together. With 5 en-suite rooms, one of which has three single divans, I can picture 10 adults
and up to 2 children having a marvellous meet up. Children over the age of 10 are welcome to stay.
This is a licenced hotel, and you will find a cosy well stocked bar next to the dining room.
If I was a guest I would be taking my gin and tonic out onto the terrace as the sun sets.
One of 3 superior bedrooms on the first floor. The bathroom is the next photo down.
All rooms have ensuite bathrooms with a bathrobe and toiletries.
Patrick told me I might find it difficult to photo the bathrooms. But I'm a photographer by trade.
When I launched this www.dartmooraccommodation.co.uk website some 14 years ago, little did I imagine what
a boon it would be to have just the right camera equipment. This shot was taken with my wide angle lens.
This four poster room is also on the first floor. All rooms have flat screen tv.s and tea trays.
The bed linen is top quality cotton. Sharon tells me that many guests mention the lovely sheets.
Family room on the first floor. Three divan beds with an extra available. Power shower in the good size bathroom.
Two rooms are on the second floor. Both offered as a standard. Being this high up they have
spectacular views over the garden and valley. The colours in Autumn are glorious.
The second standard double room. Both have a very nice ensuite bathroom. The standard rate is £120 for 2
people for one night bed and breakfast with reductions for longer stays and out of season breaks. The superior
rooms price is £140 for 1 night, (Now changed to 2014 prices - Jill) again with reductions for longer stays.
The family room differs according to how many beds needed. Best to chat with Patrick or Sharon
about the price. Do bear in mind, that all accommodation providers will reduce prices for longer stays.
I asked Patrick if he has any champagne ready for any special celebration that might crop up.
Silly me, they have 5 different bottles of bubbly. A choice of 12 white wines and about 20 reds ready for
the evening meals that they offer. There's a sample menu on the hotel website £28.50 for a 3 course dinner. Tea/coffee and chocolates are extra at £2.50. The Cleave at Lustleigh is the excellent local village pub
should you need something lighter (click to read my food review of the Cleave).
