Good Hotel Guide Review
Full of surprises’: curiosities and vintage pieces burst through Fran and Pieter Hamman’s 19th-century manor house on the edge of Dartmoor national park. The ‘zany’ styling is inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Drums, hats and old street signs adorn the walls; chandeliers and a stuffed flamingo decorate the hall. ‘Large, bright’ bedrooms continue the theme: Mad Hatter has a display of antique plates; Tweedle Deez has twin four-poster beds. Amenities are luxurious: a smartly tiled, Escher-esque bathroom; abundant extras, including chocolates, mini-bottles of wine. The glamorous bar has local beers, custom cocktails; the ‘pleasant, airy’ dining room serves chef Ben Palmer’s imaginative dishes, perhaps pan-fried market fish, shellfish orzo, crispy soft shell crab. Guided walking tours are available on Dartmoor.
