Horn of Plenty

Top choice luxury hotel in Tavistock

The swish rooms at this sumptuous country-house hotel range from country-chic to contemporary, boasting claw-foot baths, zingy colour schemes, warm wooden floors and scattered antiques. Most have balconies or terraces from which you can gaze out at rolling countryside. An acclaimed restaurant, a book-lined library and a tranquil terrace complete the classy, rural-retreat effect; it all makes it very hard to leave.

It's tucked away amid lush fields, 4 miles west of Tavistock.
