Description provided by property

This hotel sits on the quiet southern slopes of Dartmoor National Park and is 20 minutes from the centre of Plymouth. It has views across the South Hams to the sea.

The Moorland Hotel is ideal for touring this beautiful part of South Devon. There are many National Trust properties close by, and the Eden Project is a pleasant hour’s drive away.

The Phoenix Steakhouse offers mouth-watering steaks to be remembered. The à la carte menu features tasty fish dishes, game meat and a large selection of vegetarian dishes. Bookings for a table are essential.

The hotel is well-placed for Langage Industrial Estate, Tamar Science Park and Lee Moor China Clay Works.

The hotel reopened in October 2008, having enjoyed a long-awaited makeover. The hotel now offers a wonderfully warm ambience, as well as the usual warm welcome.

Travel information

We are situated on the western slopes of Dartmoor, near Plymouth. Tucked away from the hustle & bustle of the city, we can be found in the small hamlet of Wotter, Shaugh Prior. Follow the instructions below to find us: If travelling down the A38 Exeter to Plymouth Expressway, take the Lee Mill exit (not far after Ivybridge). Turn right at the first T junction and after the underpass, turn right again at the second. Then take the first left and follow the road through Cornwood and then on to Wotter. It's about 6 miles along this main road before you come to the hotel on your left. Watch out for sheep on the road! If coming from Cornwall: Go over the Tamar Bridge, along the A38. When you come to the flyover and roundabout at Marsh Mills, take the slip road exit marked Plympton and carry on towards Plympton. At a mini-roundabout take the left hand fork. At the immediate next roundabout, turn left over a stone bridge and continue along this road for about half a mile, past a convenience store on the right. Take the next right hand turn down a road called 'Crossways' (brown signed to Borringdon Hall). At the end of the road, turn left. You are now on the main road to Dartmoor. Keep going, and after a few miles, you will go over a cattle grid. At the cross roads, turn right (signposted to Wotter and the Moorland Hotel). After 800 years or so, the Moorland Hotel will appear on your right.
