Ilsington Country House Hotel & Spa
Set on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, the Ilsington Country House Hotel & Spa boasts a tranquil location and outstanding views of Haytor. Inside, spacious rooms provide the perfect place to rest your head during a weekend away, while the luxurious spa will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed.
On top of all this, the Ilsington offers a choice of eateries. Over in the main restaurant, exquisite menus and excellent service have won this establishment two AA rosettes, and head chef Mike O’Donnell has developed a reputation for his sumptuous dishes, all crafted from fresh local produce. On the fixed dinner menu, the range of starters includes a creamy smoked salmon panna cotta as well as lightly spiced carrot and coriander soup, while the mains range from breast and leg of guinea fowl to wild mushroom, leek and courgette risotto. The daily specials menu adds even more variety, with dishes like slow-cooked pork belly on offer. The platter of West Country cheese is the perfect way to finish your meal.
If you fancy a more informal dining experience, why not visit the Ilsington’s Blue Tiger Inn? Here light bites and sharing dishes are served alongside hearty mains such as root vegetable and bean curry and chicken breast with fondant potato and braised red cabbage. It comes as no surprise that the Ilsington Country House Hotel & Spa is so popular – it boasts exquisite dining options in addition to truly elegant accommodation and superb service.
