Delicious Dartmoor dining
Set in woodlands on the banks of the River Teign and with Dartmoor National Park on the doorstep, this former 15th-century flour mill is a delightful destination for walkers, dog‑owners and discerning diners.
Follow a day out to nearby Castle Drogo, Fingle Bridge or the pretty market town of Chagford with a pre‑dinner tipple in one of the comfortable lounges. Savour your sip as you gaze at beautiful riverside gardens or, in winter, the crackling log fire.
The daytime Lounge and Lawn menu is an opportunity to indulge in the likes of classic finger sandwiches, homemade sachertorte, and passionfruit and buttermilk pudding.
Dinner, by contrast, is a candlelit affair where head chef Laszlo Hegyi and team showcase locally landed seafood, South West cheeses, meat from nearby farms and moorland game. Everything, from bread to sauces, is produced in‑house and fashioned into thoughtful dishes presented with flair.
Those wishing to prolong their stay at this historic house (a former residence of jet engine designer Frank Whittle) can choose from 21 rooms with views of the gardens, the wild glory of Dartmoor or the Teign River.
Trencherman’s tip: the hotel is canine friendly and there are even special doggy dining areas, so there’s no need to leave your pooch at home.
