Enjoy the tranquil surroundings of this stunning hotel located on the fringes of atmospheric Dartmoor.
The Moorland Garden Hotel is located on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, a short drive from Plymouth and Tavistock, and benefits from Dartmoor’s breathtaking scenery. General Manager, Andrew Jenkins tells us: “Nestled amongst nine acres of picturesque, tranquil and lovingly-tended moorland gardens, you will find our four star countryside hotel, wedding and conference venue,” providing all aspects of a country getaway, whether it’s for business, pleasure, or both. Andrew continues: “Featuring 44 rooms, our family and dog-friendly hotel is loved by our guests for casual cream teas, touring the West Country, business stays, dining out, celebrating and weddings.”
“The gardens are an attraction unto themselves. Boasting nine acres of moorland garden to enjoy…”
Make the most of the long summer days this season with the Sleepy Summer Offer; arrive and enjoy an award-winning Mini Devon Cream Tea on arrival, wander around the beautiful gardens and bask in the sun with your favourite tipple in hand. Perhaps even explore the surrounding area with a walk on stunning Dartmoor or a cultural visit to Plymouth, the city by the sea. Then return to the hotel and enjoy a dinner for two with a generous £25 each towards your meal.
Unsurprisingly, the Moorland Garden Hotel is a popular choice for weddings due to its picturesque surroundings, and if you want to experience what a wedding at the hotel could be like, simply join the team on the hotel’s open day on Sunday 30th September. Here you will be able to see The Crystal Room in all it’s glory and meet the experienced team, who will be on hand to answer any questions and show you around the beautiful venue.
The gardens are an attraction unto themselves. Boasting nine acres of moorland garden to enjoy, there’s a wealth of flora to discover here, all lovingly tended by gardener, Jonathan. Watch the garden change through the seasons, from nodding spring daffodils to the full summer bloom. The hotel really is a tranquil place to stay and escape the bustle of everyday life, so if you fancy a country getaway then get in touch and make the most of the Moorland’s beautiful surroundings.
