We managed to grab a few days off toward the end of August and wanted to stay somewhere historic on or very close to Dartmoor. Despite being the middle of the holiday season, there were still one or two places that caught our eye and were available mid week but we opted for the 16th century former corn mill Furzleigh Mill Hotel because apart from anything else it had a car park!
What a well positioned and charming place this is. Our room had a small en-suite wc & shower and faced the front overlooking the car park but also the beautiful Dart valley. So quiet at night even though you are close to the A38 and so dark the stars were brighter than I've ever seen them. The distant sound of an owl and other nocturnal animals adds to the Dartmoor effect.
A hearty Furzleigh Inn Dartmoor Special breakfast sets you up for a whole day's exploring the many and varied places this part of Devon has to offer before returning for pre-dinner drinks in the little bar before a plentiful and delicious evening meal in the Hotel restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful giving advice on places to go as well as the busy roads to avoid to ensure we could cram in as much sight seeing as we could.
