Our Inspector's view

Dating back to the 1750s, this former coaching inn is in a pretty hamlet on the edge of Dartmoor. Named after Grand National winners, each of the individually decorated bedrooms has some nice extra touches. There is a wonderfully warm and inviting atmosphere here, the bars full of character with flagstone floors, crackling fires and old beams. Impressive cuisine makes the best of the locally sourced produce, utilised within a wide range of dishes, cooked with imagination and flair. The food has been awarded two AA Rosettes. A great place for walkers with the majesty of Dartmoor on the doorstep.

About the area

Discover Devon

With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.

Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them. 

Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
