The Duke of Bedford, who owned a third of Devon, chose this spot for his fishing and hunting lodge. In 2005 Olga Polizzi bought the hotel and restored it with a touch of luxury.

  • The Royal Oak Inn in the Dartmoor village of Meavy. - It's all here: cask ales, scrumpy cider, even its own Meavy Oak Ale. Great pub grub, hugely atmospheric, and loved by families, cyclists walkers and their dogs. A lovely old-fashioned Dartmoor pub, on the village green (still with its 'royal oak'), where ponies trot by in summer and beauty and birdsong surround you. It's often busy with locals and walkers but if you're lucky you'll find a pew in the ancient slab-floored bar, or outside on one of the picnic benches on the cobbled courtyard overlooking the village green. Ales including a monthly guest are local and cask-conditioned; they even have their own Meavy Oak Ale, brewed by Dartmoor brewery in Princetown; there's scrumpy aplenty and ten wines by the glass. The food is the best of pub grub: Wednesday night is Pie Night, Friday is Fish and Chips Night, beef and lamb comes from Dartmoor farms and the tartare sauce is homemade. Piped music and cribbage, muddy boots and muddy paws a seriously good bolthole for families and hikers. Join us for the annual Meavy Oak fair on 20th of June or the Cider and Ale festival on the August bank holiday weekend.
