Owned by the Makepeace family, Soar Mill Cove has a special kind of attentive service, where courteous and helpful staff look after your every need.

Okehampton - Lewtrenchard Manor

A Jacobean Manor house in its own secret hollow lying below the wild tors of Dartmoor, Lewtrenchard is more or less untouched by the passage of time. Dating from the early 1600s, the house is grand, yet still extremely welcoming. Each of the historic bedrooms has an individual character, such as oak panelling, or exquisite ornamental plasterwork, or sumptuous fabrics, or amazing antique furniture - and wonderful views over the garden and parks. All the rooms have the same special touches freshly cut flowers, soft robes, fresh fruit and tempting shortbreads, cookies and chocolate biscuits. These rooms offer the chance to totally unwind, soak in a big bath or enjoy a leisurely breakfast. And the modern bedrooms at Lewtrenchard are exquisitely designed: centuries-old oak doorways lead to spacious warm suites and superior rooms enhanced by the very best in contemporary design; fabulous four poster and sleigh beds, luxury bathrooms which are delightfully contemporary and extremely spacious, with wonderful views of cloister, fountain and gardens.
Jason Hornbuckle, one of the UKs best award-winning chefs, offers diners an  experience unequalled in the whole region. Food is meticulously prepared and superbly presented; the quality of the cooking attracts many non-residents, who enjoy the cheerful and relaxed atmosphere, not to mention the excellent and comprehensive wine cellar, which stocks modestly priced wine from all over the world.
