Lewtrenchard Manor, Okehampton, Devon
Stay at a historic, family-run manor house with bags of traditional style - Lewtrenchard is a Jacobean Manor dating back to the 1600s. Sitting on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, south Devon, it celebrates all the decadence of a bygone era. Mentioned in the Domesday Book as a royal manor, the property passed into the possession of the Trenchard family during the reign of Henry III. It's this colourful history that forms part of the allure - a countryside retreat with heritage at the heart. Home to 13 individually styled bedrooms ranging from traditional to modern, Lewtrenchard also has nine acres of beautiful grounds, with expansive moorland views. Suited to history lovers and couples looking for a romantic countryside escape.

Style & Character
A hotel for history lovers, outdoors enthusiasts and anyone after a romantic break in the countryside. We're fascinated with the grandeur of Lewtrenchard; every room is filled with unique furnishings, from the original coats of arms to portrait-lined walls.
Service & Facilities
We adore the library with its wood-burning stove, high-backed sofas and walls lined with fabulous antique books - the perfect setting for a nightcap! Dogs are welcome in all of the bedrooms, where they will find a bowl, a blanket and selection of dog biscuits. Your canine pals can join you in one of the dining rooms, as well as the bar and courtyard and there are ample walks nearby. 15 minutes' drive will take you onto the open moorland, where your dog can run freely.

Our favourite is Seymour, a gorgeous light-filled space overlooking the courtyard, with the largest bed in the hotel! We love the striking mustard and blue tones, low lighting and the bathroom with a large roll-top bath and walk-in shower.
