Abutting the Roman city walls, this style-savvy red brick old coaching inn (Young’s Brewery) has a lively atmosphere. Inside, a host of interesting curios including a vintage sewing machine, a ship’s masthead, and splashes of colour lend a quirky yet unpretentious vibe. Microbrewed drinks and traditional pub classics are served all day in the buzzy restaurant. In balmy weather, diners spill on to the large beer garden. ‘Boutiquey’ bedrooms are themed (water, wool, cotton).
At the centre of a row of quarrymen’s cottages, built in 1820 of the same local granite, this ‘charming hotel’ is true to its motto, ‘steadfastly traditional’. It is in the small village of Haytor Vale, ‘just below the famous Haytor rocks’ on the south-eastern edge of Dartmoor.
