This traditional English Country Inn has been offering travellers hospitality, good food and shelter since it's foundation as a coaching inn in the mid-eighteenth century. In this modern age we pride ourselves on a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, with personal service reminiscent of a bygone age. At the Rock Inn you will find excellent food, carefully chosen wines, and fine local ales, in a wonderful country setting. Enjoy the unique experience of being able to walk straight from the front door onto the Dartmoor wilderness, returning to find open log fires and warm hospitality. From our location at Haytor you are driving distance from the historic cities of Exeter and Plymouth and also the entire south Devon coast - the perfect location for a short break or a longer stay. With the whole of Dartmoor on your doorstep and the whole of beautiful South Devon a short drive away, there is so much to do in this stunning part of Britain. Dartmoor presents a rich and varied landscape, from the bleak and isolated open moorland which provided the inspiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "Hound of the Baskervilles" ('Hound Tor' is literally minutes by car, or approximately 1.5 hours walk for a keen walker), through the wooded, boulder strewn ravines, down to the sheltered valleys, picturesque villages and thatched cottages which personify the Devon countryside.
