A Grade II listed building with wonderful views across the rolling Devonshire countryside towards Dartmoor; records suggest that the Manor has existed in some form since saxon times; long before the Domesday Book of 1086.

The present building is relatively modern by some comparison dating back only to the mid 1600’s. Many of the original features are still present today, such as the heavy oak beams, worn slate flagstones and the freshwater well which would have once served the Manor.

We have furnished each of the seven ensuite bedrooms individually in a style that is highly appropriate for the setting. The rooms are cosy, warm and inviting with hand stitched soft furnishings and views to the gardens and beyond. Each room has a colour television and telephones for those who need to be in touch with the outside world.

Our restaurant offers some of the finest seasonal food in Devon – supporting local suppliers realising how important they are within the community.

Our aim is to achieve a high degree of personal attention within the relaxed atmosphere that only a small hotel can provide – we concentrate on providing a friendly yet professional service where nothing is too much trouble.
