Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We will return,’ vowed regular Guide correspondents after a stay at Chris Daly’s 18th-century manor at the heart of Dartmoor – and so they have, to find it, in 2017, as ‘friendly and laid-back’ as ever. Nuthatches, starlings and skylarks may be seen in the large grounds. Inside the house, log fires burn in the lounges. ‘Sitting in the dining room is an enjoyable experience: Chris’s huge photographs of Dartmoor ponies and laughing Tamworth pigs, along with hand-thrown pottery plates on the distressed painted tables, add to the aura of the place.’ A monthly-changing menu lists ‘everything from snacks to the full Monty’, including, perhaps, ‘particularly enjoyable rabbit terrine; squash and Cornish Yarg tart; Barnsley chop with seasonal veg’. Individually decorated bedrooms, each named after a local tor, are supplied with home-baked biscuits. ‘Our first-floor room was large, with two armchairs, plenty of storage space, a modern bathroom, and a pleasant view across the moor – very Hound of the Baskervilles, when the thick mist swirled about.’ ‘Plenty of high-quality options’ at breakfast, including home-baked bread.

Guest comments

'Our fourth visit to this relaxing hotel. Large, spacious bedroom, modern bathroom; very pleasant view of moor. Dogs and their best friends may eat in the bar. Sitting in the dining room is a pleasant experience. The food is good though there is now one menu, changing monthly, with everything from light bites to the full monty, but it was large enough to give us choice over four nights. Breakfast has high quality ingredients. The young staff were friendly if a tad forgetful. ' - GC - March, 2017
'Our second visit to this relaxing hotel. Our room had plenty of storage and stunning views. The food was heavenly. The bar has been rejigged to make more room for people to dine with their dogs. ' - GC - March, 2016
