The Horn of Plenty has garnered an enviable reputation over the past 50 years thanks to a roll call of culinary talent, plus a coveted location overlooking the Tamar Valley
Nature lovers, early retirees and staycationers all beat a path to The Horn of Plenty’s edge-of-Dartmoor dwelling during winter. With a two AA rosette restaurant, beautifully furnished bedrooms and miles of unspoilt countryside on the doorstep, this independent country house hotel provides the perfect balance of luxury, leisure and service.
Dog walkers and outdoor lovers will love the choice of walking trails and tracks, and several of the hotel’s bedrooms are dog friendly. For those wanting to relax with a good book, the library offers the perfect retreat. Meanwhile the pretty market town of Tavistock is just a five minute drive and offers a host of independent shops and a newly refurbished Pannier Market.
Following in the footsteps of founder Sonia Stephenson, Head Chef Ashley Wright plucks inspiration from Dartmoor’s seasonally shifting landscape for his a la carte and tasting menus. Local produce is king with this talented chef and guests taking advantage of the hotel’s Winter Warmer package can look forward to feasting on roasted quail, Brixham brill and Cornish venison.
Evenings at The Horn of Plenty are best started early with a pre-dinner drink in front of the roaring fire. Be cautious not to retire too late though, as early risers are rewarded with awe-inspiring views over the Tamar Valley and across to Cornwall.
