The Good Food Guide asserts that "rural England barely gets more picture-postcard than this," and indeed The Horn of Plenty impresses with romantic bedrooms, a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant and picturesque Tamar Valley views. The hotel is set on five acres of well-tended sloping gardens, perched on a hillside in the heart of the UNESCO-recognized Cornwall and West Devon mining country. A mile's drive into the misty valley will take you across the Cornish border.

The property dates back to 1866, when it was built for the manager of the Duke of Bedford’s mines, and it is cozily furnished with Georgian-style trimmings, including gilt-framed pictures and a cast-iron fireplace in the lounge -- as The Guardian says, "this is a relaxed, put-your-feet-up sort of place."

Luckily for guests, classic fine dining is available on the premises, and the views are "ravishing," notes The Good Food Guide. The Modern British dishes boast fresh produce from the hotel’s own kitchen garden -- try the beetroot mousse with goat’s cheese parfait and gingerbread, whole roast partridge with candied walnuts and quince puree, or the Tavistock cheese plate. Dine in the formal dining room or out on the pretty terrace (lunchtime only).

It’s an intimate property, with rooms spread across the manor and a garden annex. All are uniquely decorated and have large windows, most offering unobstructed views of the walled garden or the wooded valley below. Many also have stand-alone tubs, balconies or terraces. Pets are welcome in Garden rooms (extra charge applies), which are more contemporary and come with modern bathroom suites.

Food was not as good as it used to be and the kitchen always seemed rushed. The staff were incredibly friendly and the accommodation was very comfortable. However not one member of staff knew how to mix a margarita. G and T was their limit.
