Discerning travelers such as C.P. Snow, Margaret Mead, John Steinbeck, and Evelyn Waugh—who completed Brideshead Revisited here—made this their Dartmoor home-away-from-home. The Tudor thatch-roof house has 3½ acres of grounds and simple but elegant cottage-style rooms in an adjoining wing; all rooms have views over the well-maintained garden. Breakfast choices include soufflé omelets. Self-catering cottages are also available.
