Two Bridges Hotel situated in beautiful Dartmoor

One of the key themes for this hotel is “Close to home but a million miles away”. Nestled in the heart of Dartmoor, yet easy to find, it is a truly lovely spot to escape to for a winter break or just to pop in for a warming coffee in front of a crackling log fire. Miles of walks all around, and your canine friend is as welcome as you are! There is a sense of history and warmth that pervades the hotel. Dartmoor is truly picturesque and steeped in folklore, just waiting for you to explore.

Think award winning chef and fabulous food, rooms and service, with ticking clocks, captivating antiques and sumptuous soft furnishings. You will receive a warm Devon welcome here and we bet you don’t want to leave.

The Bedford Hotel in historic Tavistock

If cream teas are your thing then look no further than the Bedford Hotel in award winning Devon market town Tavistock. Tavistock is rich in history and famous son’s and daughters tell a story that spans over a thousand years, King’s and Queen’s have come to visit and many a tale can be told of murder and mystery! This is the birthplace of the Devon Cream Tea. The Bedford Hotel was originally part of Tavistock’s Benedictine Abbey, which was established in the 10th century. During the restoration of the Abbey, workers were rewarded with bread, clotted cream and strawberry preserves, et voila, the Devon Cream Tea was born! You can also get Owens award winning coffee at the Bedford, which goes just as well with a cream tea, served in historic surroundings.

The Bedford is also dog friendly, so you could set yourself a little road trip and visit both hotels. The Two Bridges is only about 20 minutes drive. Enjoy the delights of Tavistock, then relax on beautiful Dartmoor. Mini break in Devon sorted, with coffee on the side.
