From the moment you set inside the imposing granite Tudor porch way you know you are about to experience something special.
The Oxenham Arms is a truly magnificent 12th Century coaching inn nestling right on the edge of Dartmoor, set in one of Devonís prettiest villages, yet only 20 minutes from Exeter. Ideal for walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding and lots more. You can walk from the hotel straight on to the moor or be at the beach in 30 minutes.

The Oxenham Arms has been carefully and sympathetically modernised to offer a contemporary restaurant serving great local fare, much of it produced on our own farm. Our bacon and sausage at breakfast are truly wonderful.

The bar, unchanged for centuries, offers real ale and many interesting wines. A great place to sit and unwind after a busy day. The log fires in the cooler months fill the Ox with that delicious aroma.

Upstairs brings a selection of individually decorated bedrooms, many with four poster beds, and all with en suite bathroom facilities. Each room containing unique features, enjoyed by almost 1000 years of travellers. Your only dilemma - should you tell your friends or keep this treasure to yourself.
