  • Great location in middle of Dartmoor. Good access to moor for some. Views first class. Very simple no frills accommodation with unusual booking system.
  • Amazing service- staff personally chauffeured me there and didn't charge for anything. I only planned to stay two nights while they insisted I stay an extra 2 years, and I couldn't turn down their kind offer. The food was good and the entertainment was ok. My parents kept calling, sounding extremely concerned but I kept insisting everything was fine. My roommate was friendly enough and the staff were great! Would definitely recommend this place and can't wait to come back.
  • Best prisons are the old ones,Dartmoor is one of the best in the country šŸ‘šŸ‘šŸ‘šŸ‘

  • Please release me Iā€™m wrongly accused of arson
