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 and a restaurant. 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.

Dartington Hall was once home to Henry VIII's wives Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr. References to this era remain, such as the Great Hall, which The Guardian says is an "enchanting scene". The 2-AA-Rosette White Hart restaurant overlooks the property's Grade II-listed gardens and features fare from local producers.

Ensuite bedrooms are positioned around the medieval courtyard and overlook the grounds. Standard Double with Separate Bathroom bedrooms are not ensuite but have a private bathroom a short distance away. Rooms have free Wi-Fi.

From the press:

  • "We love…the attractive bedrooms and the well-kept grounds that make this a beautiful venue" -- Condé Nast Johansens

  • "This magnificent hall in Devon is a far cry from the usual country house hotel -- it's a not-for-profit social enterprise promoting social justice, sustainability and the arts" -- The Guardian

Staff trying very hard but it seemed that the restauarants and cafes needed managers to better organise and spot training needs and requirements.

Peaceful and superb grounds. all staff were brilliant and really laid back. Excellent room (W8) with vaulted ceiling. only minor point being absence of a full mirror in the bedroom leading to hairdrying difficulties for my wife!
