Mill End Hotel is set on the banks of Devon's River Teign on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay praises it as a "relaxed country-house hotel with lovely food, open fires and great walking all around".

This 15th-century property was once a mill and the restored 18-foot water wheel is powered by an aqueduct on Dartmoor.

The restaurant uses local ingredients, including fish from the Cornish coast, locally reared meat, and fresh vegetables. The bottled water is produced in-house, using a 7-stage filtration and purification system. There is a continental breakfast buffet and a selection of hot breakfast dishes cooked to order. Expect to see dishes such as whipped Cornish brie with spiced carrot salad and truffle honey, ale-braised beef cheek with rösti potato and celeriac purée, and treacle tart with rhubarb, honeycomb and clotted cream. Or try the selection of West Country cheeses with biscuits, grapes and quince jelly.

The hotel has 15 individually styled bedrooms and the décor is traditional with neutral calming colours. Standard Double rooms are on the first and second floor, and some have views of the gardens or direct access to a private patio with a garden.

There's a small bar for pre-dinner drinks, with comfy lounges with log fires and views of the riverside gardens.

The hotel owns a short stretch of the River Teign so keen anglers can go fishing (supplements apply). Well-behaved dogs are also allowed at the hotel (supplements apply).

Enjoyed Most: the location was remote, but close enough to Chagford. A lovely cosy, old country house is just what we had in mind. The place was very nicely decorated and so were the rooms. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Loved the cosy fire in the living room in the evening.
Other Comments: Need to thanks the chef and restaurant staff for being very easy going and making changes to the menu to suit my mum (not making it a problem)

Susan Oct 09, 2016 Portsmouth, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: Relaxed atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. Good food
Other Comments: The corridor outside our room was being given decorated. There was a smell of paint at night which was not pleasant. We could have asked for a different room, husband was not keen so openEd with down and put pillows against door. Maybe they should have closed this part of the hotel whilst decorating.
