The Bedford Hotel
Set in the charming market town of Tavistock, The Bedford Hotel is the ideal base for visitors exploring the West Country. Located between Dartmoor National Park and the Tamar Valley, The Bedford offers easy access to some of the UK’s most awe-inspiring sights. The hotel’s dog-friendly policy is perfect for ramblers who don’t wish to leave their four-legged friends behind.
Many of the rooms here offer views over the town and some even boast luxurious four-poster beds. Each characterful space is designed to emphasise the unique charms of this historic building. Groups with small children can also book family-friendly rooms.
When you’re not exploring the countryside or putting your feet up, why not enjoy a meal in the award-winning restaurant? Begin your day with a sumptuous breakfast – the full Devon breakfast is irresistible – or a cup of freshly brewed morning coffee. If you’re choosing from the lunch and dinner menu, try the flavoursome Dartmoor beef and Jail Ale pie, with sautéed potatoes and delicious seasonal vegetables. Alternatively, opt for an appetising starter of Cornish beetroot and halloumi arancini, before tucking into the Indonesian rendang goat curry. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, The Bedford’s afternoon tea is the perfect way to treat yourself. The team also offers a fantastic Sunday lunch every week and once a month this is accompanied by live jazz.
