In the nine acres of Moorland Garden, there's a wealth of flora and fauna to discover tended by their gardener Jonathan. The gardens through the seasons are a joy, from the nodding yellow daffodils to the spring bluebells and the rich colours of autumn, there's always a plant in bloom to marvel at.

People choose to stay at the Moorland Garden Hotel for all sorts of reasons in this beautiful part of South West England, including:

Business travellers appreciate the tranquil yet convenient setting just minutes away from Plymouth and Tavistock, wedding couples revel in their big day in the sumptuous chandelier-lit ballroom overlooking the lawn and all manner of local and national businesses and organisations use the conference and event facilities.

Those enjoying leisure breaks in the South West adore the spectacular Dartmoor National Park, green rolling hills, multi-coloured patchwork fields, cream teas in the countryside and the bustling, beautiful market towns of Devon. It's also easy to venture into Cornwall in search of sandy beaches, coastal paths and picturesque fishing villages.

For active folk who enjoy the great outdoors, there are hundreds of walking and cycle routes, both off and on road and the setting provides unrivalled access to other outdoor pursuits including sailing, climbing, horse-riding and even landscape photography.

As well as the idyllic setting, Dartmoor has a rich cultural heritage. It has some of the best archaeological sites in Western Europe and nearly 400 years ago the Pilgrim Fathers set sail from Plymouth in search of the New World.

Close by is the Yelverton Golf Course where the hotel can arrange discounted green fees.
