The famous Two Bridges Hotel in the heart of Dartmoor National Park is a Dartmoor oasis of fine food, great ales and warm hospitality.

The hotel offers 31 comfortable and individually styled rooms - ranging from comfy country-style rooms to grand Four Poster rooms with lots of historic features.  

But the hotel is not just for guests who stay the night. It is very firmly...

The Bedford Hotel, Tavistock

Posted by Mike C in Sep 2018

For warm hospitality and fine food & drink in the historic Devon market town of Tavistock, head for The Bedford Hotel in the heart of town.

The Bedford Hotel, under the same private ownership as Dartmoor Brewery, has been welcoming weary travellers for centuries, and has been beautifully restored to provide modern comforts in a very historic setting.

Pub of the Week: The Oxenham Arms

Posted by Mike C in Aug 2018

You'll find the Oxenham Arms Hotel and Restaurant in South Zeal, a beautiful, unspoilt village on the Northern edge of Dartmoor National Park, and as one of Devon's oldest inns, it's definitely worth a visit.

There are plenty of historic inns on Dartmoor, but the Oxenham Arms has the dual distinction of being a former medieval monastery, and the oldest CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) heritage inn in Devon.  Even before you step inside, you'll sense the history of this 12th Century buidling, originally built by Benedictine monks. Uniquely there is a 5000-year old standing stone in the centre of the hotel,...

Pub of the Week: The Forest Inn

Posted by Mike C in Aug 2018

If you've got in mind a country pub in the middle of Dartmoor with glorious countrside in every direction, great beers on the bar, and a warm Devon welcome, you'll love our Pub of the Week - the Forest Inn, Hexworthy.

The Forest Inn enjoys an exceptional location, perched on a Dartmoor hillside close to the pretty hamlet of Hexworthy. The West Dart river is just down the lane from the pub, and the grassy riverbank at nearby Huccaby Bridge is an ideal spot at which to spend a lazy summer's afternoon (and enjoy a paddle in the clear, cool Dartmoor waters).
