Like to walk on Dartmoor but don't fancy bunking up in a YMCA at the end of a long day's slog? Saved up a bit of cash for something special? Quite like the idea of a day out on the moors followed by a nice bath and a fab 2-star Michelin meal? Well, you've come to the right place. Gidleigh Park is a lovely arts and crafts country house at the end of a terrifying single-track road (god only know how anyone gets here in winter) with great service, greater food and simply stupendous rooms. And the moors are just outside: you can literally walk straight out onto them. If you can be bothered to venture outside the charming bar, away from the delightful terrace, or outside the lovely 100 or so acres of grounds, of course. We booked the gourmet getaway, which give you the a la carte menu one night and a tasting menu the other, and both were terrific. Service is good, although the staff look terrified of something, and the general manager didn't exactly looked thrilled when we shambled across the threshold. Breakfast isn't the amazing cornucopia you get at Mssr Blanc's Manoir, but is still far from shabby. Rooms are great; ours had a freestanding roll top bath in the window, which we made extensive use of. Occitane toiletries. Attention to detail all round.
