Why We Love It
- This 14th-century manor lies on the banks of the River Dart in Devon
- Profits from the hotel support The Dartington Hall Trust charity
- The restaurant overlooks Grade II-listed gardens
Dartington Hall is a 14th-century manor set in 800 acres of Grade II-listed gardens on the banks of the River Dart in Devon. The estate is a destination in its own right, with an on-site cinema, a restaurant, a visitor centre and a selection of shops. The hotel hosts events such as the annual Ways with Words Festival, where readers can meet authors and hear guest speakers.
The Grade I-listed property is a 10-minute drive from the edge of Dartmoor National Park -- a place of "honey-tinged moors" and "moss-smothered boulders in woods of twisted trees", says Lonely Planet. Dartmoor was one of the filming locations for Steven Spielberg's "War Horse". Other nearby places to visit include Exeter and Plymouth, and the towns on the English Riviera: Brixham, Torquay and Paignton. All are less than 35 minutes' drive away.
The estate dates from 1388 and was once home to two of Henry VIII's wives, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr. At its heart is a courtyard containing the restored 14th-century Great Hall. The Guardian describes it as "an enchanting scene". The White Hart overlooks the property's gardens and features fare from local producers.
Ensuite bedrooms are positioned around the medieval courtyard and overlook the grounds. Wi-Fi is free.
