OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Weeke Barton is in a peaceful but accessible setting on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park, close to the Teign River. The B3212, the main road across the moor, is within easy reach, meaning it's convenient for the main attractions. Bustling foodie town Chagford is about 30 minutes' drive away and there are lots of wonderful walks, pubs and places to explore nearby, including Fingle Bridge, Canonteign Falls and Castle Drogo.

By car: around 4 hours from London, 2 hours from Bristol and 4 hours 30 minutes from Manchester. Free parking available.

By train: Trains from London to Exeter take 3 hours. The hotel is 25 minutes' drive. Book trains to Exeter.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

A hunk of a wooden front door leads to a homely interior packed with wonky beams, flagstones and inglenook fireplaces. Carefully chosen furniture and contemporary décor and artwork create a stylish interior. It's clear much thought has gone into choosing good quality, sustainable materials - from the linen to the toiletries.

THE FACILITIES

The owners, Jo and Sam, are excellent hosts - nothing is too much trouble, their local knowledge is invaluable, and their ethos of sustainability is admirable. The honesty bar is a bonus, as is the sitting room. The gardens are delightful and there's a gin-clear stream, boules pitch and fire pit.
