Full description

Moretonhampstead is an ancient market town situated within Dartmoor National Park in the centre of Devon. The town is surrounded by some of the finest countryside in England ? rolling hills covered in mature woodland, open tors, spectacular views and ample opportunities to explore. The town is essentially a village in character and is located at almost the exact geographical centre of the County, making it an ideal base to explore not only the unique features of Dartmoor but also the beautiful South and North Devon coasts. The Cathedral City of Exeter is approximately 14 miles away and the White Hart is approximately 12 miles to the market town of Newton Abbot, 14 miles from Okehampton and around 40 miles to the City of Plymouth. Plymouth, Newton Abbot and Exeter all have main line railway links; Exeter has an international airport.

The building which is reputed to date from 1639, is Grade II Listed and has been a focal point of village life in Moretonhampstead for centuries. The White Hart Hotel, which has been awarded AA 3 Star, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence alongside the Taste of the West Gold Award 2017 is a well-established business and offers all the modern comforts of a luxury hotel within a traditional setting. The premises have over the years been refurbished to a particularly high standard with quality fixtures and fittings. The Hotel has 17 beautifully appointed en suite bedrooms with a further 3 en suite rooms being used for staff accommodation and storage. The premises were purchased by our client in 2012, during this time the owner has invested heavily in the infrastructure and fabric of the building including the fitting of a state of the art heating & hot water system, refurbishment of the majority of bedrooms to a superior standard and the upgrading of majority of the commercial catering equipment. The Hotel, which is dog friendly, has built a strong reputation for providing excellent accommodation and cuisine with a welcoming atmosphere. The restaurant and bar, which is open to non-residents, offers fresh, seasonal, local produce prepared to the highest standard and is complimented by a range of local real ales and a hand-picked wine list.
