Win a two-night stay on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and take time to explore this wild and wonderful area
During our journey around Devon in this issue’s new series – ‘Britain’s Wonderful Weekends’ – we discovered a lovely property, the luxurious and peaceful Moorland Garden Hotel. We have teamed up with the hotel to offer one lucky winner and guest a two-night stay – with breakfast and dinner on both days – in this South Devon delight.
Located in War Horse country on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, just moments away from Plymouth city centre, the picturesque town of Tavistock, and close to the border with Cornwall, Moorland Garden Hotel is an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful area. The hotel itself sits in nine acres of tranquil moorland and gardens, which you can also explore at your leisure.
The winner will stay in one of the hotel’s four suites, which are luxurious and tastefully decorated. Its 55 en-suite bedrooms are also very comfortable and well equipped.
In the Wildflower Restaurant meals are served with a large portion of wonderful views across the garden and onto Dartmoor. During your stay don’t miss the speciality Devon cream teas, which are served in the lounge or in the picturesque garden on fine days. Or relax by the open fire and taste real ales in the welcoming Dartmoor Bar.
Leaving the untamed splendour of Dartmoor behind, the City of Plymouth is just a short drive away, with its magnificent natural harbour overlooked by the famous Plymouth Hoe, and where it is said Sir Francis Drake once played bowls and the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for America in the Mayflower almost 400 years ago.
If you choose not to leave the comfort of the hotel, make the most of the complimentary parking and enjoy a relaxing drink on the terrace or a stroll around the wildflower meadow, with its mature trees and Dartmoor plants and flowers all lovingly cared for by the head gardener, who, like most of their team, lives locally.
