Welcome to Dartmoor House Bed & Breakfast
Dartmoor House is a comfortable and welcoming Bed & Breakfast, situated in the picturesque village of Belstone, set within Dartmoor National Park. With views overlooking the village green, we are ideally located in the centre of the village, with ‘door to moor’ walking and cycling.
We can offer four large light and airy rooms comprising two doubles with en suite showers, one twin room with private use of separate bathroom and one single room with private use of separate bathroom. Our twin/single rooms are not sold together unless requested and make an ideal option for groups of 3-4 people who do not mind sharing a bathroom. All rooms are tastefully decorated and have central heating, TVs, free broadband and hairdryers. Cotton towels are provided and our duvet/pillows are anti-allergy with Egyptian cotton bed linen. Hospitality trays are supplied with Clipper tea & coffee (Organic or Fairtrade) and Border biscuits.
Breakfast is served in our large bay fronted room overlooking the village green where the famous wild Dartmoor ponies can often be found grazing. Food is freshly prepared daily using locally sourced produce wherever possible – our bacon and sausages are provided by Farmer Luxtons in Okehampton and we also use free range eggs. Sandwiches can be freshly prepared upon request and are packed in recyclable sandwich containers. We have also been awarded a 5* Hygiene Rating from The Food Standards Agency.
This is a strictly non-smoking residence and regrettably, we cannot accommodate dogs/pets or children under 12 years of age. We have a mains fire alarm system, a lockable area for the safe keeping of cycles/fishing gear and use of an airing cupboard for times when the weather has not been too kind. For an ideal present we also have Gift Vouchers which can be used within 12 months of purchase (subject to available dates) and we are open all year round. Check out our guest reviews on Tripadvisor.
Belstone is a pretty little moorland village located only a mile from the A30 and approximately two miles from Okehampton, making it an excellent base from which to tour Devon and an ideal stop over for walking from Land’s End to John O’Groats (LEJOG). Within Belstone there is a pub, a church, a village hall, a tearoom and we even have our own ancient stocks on the village green. It is also an ideal location for those of you attending the annual Ten Tors Challenge and the Folk Festival in South Zeal which is held every August.
The stunning surrounding countryside offers walking trails to suit all abilities and the National Cycle Network offers numerous cycle routes including the Tarka Trail and the mostly traffic free Granite Way which starts from Okehampton Station. There is fantastic fishing in parts of the East and West Dart Rivers and reservoirs, and an abundance of wildlife and beautiful scenery which at any time of year is a photographer’s delight. We also have beautiful night skies.
