Closing date: February 28, 2022

Summer may offer long days and bright sunshine, but the best time to experience Dartmoor in all its wild glory is in winter when snow-capped tors and frost-covered hedgerows create a magical landscape.

After a bracing winter stomp on the moor, those in the know retreat to the log-fire warmth of Two Bridges Hotel‘s cosy lounge. For over 225 years, the characterful bar, restaurant and hotel has been a sanctuary for walkers exploring Dartmoor National Park, and it’s still a firm favourite with holidaymakers and day-trippers who crave traditional comfort in this wild corner of Devon.

Most choose to stay the night in one of Two Bridges‘ individually designed bedrooms so they have plenty of time to explore the miles of countryside that surround the hotel. It also provides the opportunity to dine in the restaurant which, in 2021, was crowned best in the county by Food Drink Devon.

Executive chef Mike Palmer raids the local larder to create show-stopping dishes which offer a true taste of the Dartmoor terroir. Winter is a fabulous time to try the award-winning chef’s considered menus as seasonal ingredients such as local venison, Dartmoor beef and Creedy Carver duck take starring roles.

The next morning, guests are set up for another day of moorland adventures with a traditional Dartmoor breakfast featuring the likes of Howells’ sausage, hog’s pudding, smoked back bacon and local free-range eggs.

For your chance to win, simply answer the question below.

What is the name of Two Bridges Hotel’s executive chef?
