9.4 out of 10

Without doubt Devon's grandest, fanciest and priciest hotel. At the end of a long private drive, the mock-Tudor house is an unashamedly opulent pamper pad: vast suites with wet-room showers, luxurious lounges with crackling fires, and a restaurant overseen by multiple-award-winning Chris Simpson. It's 2 miles west of Chagford.

There's also a push-the-boat-out seven-course tasting menu for £145, plus £75 for wine pairings.
