See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Built of granite from Haytor in the 1870's in a lush woodland garden setting, this family owned country house hotel was a boys boarding school between 1879 and 1909, once Bovey Tracey Grammar School and is on the B3387 from Bovey to Haytor and Widdecombe-in-the-Moor. The hotel bar is housed in what was the old school gym. The room is light and well furnished presenting a stately yet cosy atmosphere. There is an interesting set of black & white photographs of school teachers, familiar to viewers of 'Carry On' and St Trinians films. All the accommodation is en-suite and includes rooms with four poster beds, together with dog friendly rooms in the Woodland Wing, that open out onto a patio. A Chess club is held here 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.
