The Ilsington Country House Hotel's new Restaurant was created in 2006. Carefully designed and planned, this spacious room has dramatic views over Dartmoor and up to Haytor rocks. Large picture windows ensure that all diners have an excellent aspect on the rolling countryside. The interior of the room is equally spectacular with its domed ceiling and specially commissioned paintings of local scenes on the wall. Head Chef, Mike O’Donnell has been at the Hotel for 14 years and is the proud holder of 2 AA Rosettes. His contemporary cooking uses predominantly locally sourced ingredients. This fine food when enjoyed in elegant and breathtaking surroundings will please even the most discerning of diners. The Restaurant is fully air-conditioned and is totally non-smoking.

The new Spa is absolutely stunning and one of the best in Devon. If you are after some peace and quiet, this is the best place to go. Have never felt so relaxed and at peace: clean air, no noise, no city bustle.

There is a range of accommodationfrom our standard ground floor rooms through to our newly refurbished deluxe rooms - offering luxury bathrooms and plenty of comfort. Every single room affords a panoramic view of the outstanding moorland scenery, which changes with every passing season.

The indoor heated swimming pool with sauna, spa pool, steam room and gymnasium is free to guests and provides the perfect place for relaxing or working off some of the excesses of the dining room. Also, nearby is an all-weather tennis court should you wish a more vigorous form of exercise.

  • Ilsington is four miles from the A38, which is a continuation of the M5. Shortly after Exeter the road divides, take the right hand fork in the direction of Plymouth and after about twelve miles take the exit indicating Newton Abbot, Bovey Tracey and Moretonhampsted. This is the same exit to take if travelling in the opposite direction from Plymouth. Take the third turning off the roundabout (first turning if coming from Plymouth) towards Liverton and Ilsington, then turn first right to Liverton and Ilsington. Follow the road for approximately 4 miles to the village of Ilsington. Go past the village sign at the top of the hill and carry on along the road for 500 metres. The hotel is located on your right hand side.
