Located within the Dartmoor National Park, yet only 4 miles from the A38, Ilsington is the ideal destination for touring South Devon. Family owned and run since 1998 and located in 10 acres of private land, you are sure of a warm welcome and a peaceful, relaxing stay.

The hotel has 25 bedrooms ranging from standard rooms ideal for walkers and those with four legged friends, to deluxe rooms and family suites for those wishing a few more creature comforts. A choice of 2 dining options ensures all tastes are catered for. Our beautiful main Restaurant with 2 AA rosettes and stunning views of Dartmoor is open every evening for a 2 or 3-course dinner, along with breakfast each morning. Our more informal Blue Tiger bistro serves food and drinks throughout the day and also leads onto a large sun terrace with lovely views of Dartmoor. Comfortable lounges and the conservatory are ideal areas for a morning coffee, Devonshire cream tea or maybe a catch up of the daily news.

The Spa, built in 2015 and winner of the South West Spa and Wellness Experience in 2017 is an area of complete calm and tranquillity. Beautifully furnished with indoor pool, large hydrotherapy pool, steam room, sauna and fitness suite. In addition there are treatment rooms to enhance your relaxation.

In summary a family run hotel with traditional values, excellent facilities, friendly staff and located within peaceful surroundings.
