We had a happy stay here, and enjoyed our large room (Heron) with its lovely views. This is an unpretentious small hotel, but comfortable and well appointed without being what one might call luxurious or stylish. The food is good. We stayed three nights and all the meals were well cooked, with large portions designed to please walkers. Spicy tuna and ginger pudding with brandy sauce were outstanding. Breakfasts were good too, with really fresh fruit and plain yoghurt, as well as properly cooked scrambled eggs. Bad weather spoiled our full appreciation of the location, but it is idyllically quiet and rural.

Room Tip: Heron is very spacious with two windows.

Lovely setting in a friendly guest house. Helpful staff who recommended good walks and places to visit that fitted our interests. Freshly cooked breakfasts with good variety. This guest house is comfortable with itself and passes that feeling on to its customers. With rooms are thoughtfully set out to maximise the feeling of space and are furnished for comfort without pretensions. I intend to use this again when travelling on business as it has an air of peace and quiet that I rarely find in hotels

We booked a couple of weeks ago and stayed this week for 2 nights! Two friends on a walking holiday this hotel was ideally placed for moor access. We got a greatdeal on price and the hotel was very functional and tidy possibly a little tired but it is end of season. For me breakfast is the big decider and here they were just fantastic! Lovely products especially the meat! I will certainly book this place again!

Well where to start with this idyllic hideaway attached to the Lydgate hotel, after a nine hour journey we finally arrived to a home from home with a lovely homemade cream tea awaiting us and a fresh pint of milk in the fridge Bliss! !! Fresh flowers were on the table and it all felt very welcoming. The cottage is wonderfully laid out with a dishwasher, fridge freezer, washer dryer and microwave. There is even a barbecue and briquettes should it ever be dry enough to have a barbie. The dog even enjoyed his stay. Because we were located in the centre of dartmoor national park we were able to visit lots of beautiful villages and towns. We were impressed with the cafes and restaurants as all made us welcome and even allowed the dog to go in and relax whilst having a cuppa or meal. Dogs are not allowed to be left alone in the accommodation by themselves but this was no hassle. The bellever forest was a wonderful place to take the dog for long or short walks along the river . We had lots of rain whilst visiting but plenty of sun too. We hope we can visit again very soon. One thing to be aware of is there is no mobile phone signal, but there was WiFi.
There were lots of beautiful sights and places to see and visit. We also saw plenty of wildlife too.

I have been to this little delightful hotel twice now. Nestled on the side of the Dart valley it is a charming small hotel surrounded by woodland and with nothing to disturb the peace bar the rush and tumble of the River Dart as it rushes on down the valley.
The hotel rooms come in various sizes, they are nicely decorated with homely charm and are always scrupulously clean. When you arrive in your room you are greeted with a well stocked tea tray, not just tea and coffee but a range of flavoured teas, lovely hot chocolate and some tasty biscuits. A bottle of fresh milk is stored in the fridge near to your room and extra tea and coffee is always available, you can even store your bottle of wine in the fridge to be enjoyed nicely chilled later.
Breakfast is served in a lovely conservatory with views down the Dart valley. There is a great choice of cereals or fresh fruit salads and yoghurt. After these you can choose from a good range of hot cooked breakfasts from a simple boiled egg and soldiers to a well cooked full English. A full range of toast and jam is always supplied, which can be washed down with a fresh orange juice or hot tea and coffee.
The hotel offers a beautifully cooked evening meal which varies from day to day. You can choose from two or three couses to suit your appetite.
If you enjoy walking you only need to step out of the hotel door to set off on a range of lovely local walks, or a drive of no more than twenty minuts in any direction opens up a wealth of opportunities for other walks and sight seeing.
If you have a well behaved dog they are made welcome too and there is always a welcome wag from the hotel's friendly dog Ebony!
Lydgate house is only 40 minutes from the centre of Plymouth which makes it ideal for business as well as pleasure visitors.
The drive across the moors in the morning, mist rising into the golden early sunshine. A few sheep dotted along the road enjoying the warming tarmac and the odd moorland pony herd grazing happily as you drive by, all makes for a beautiful start to your day.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely, most are up a steep staircase though although I think there is one on ground level.
