Are you wild about the West?

‘
The Dartmoor Inn on the Moors’ western edge at Lydford, should be at the top of your list. Rooms were added to its award-winning restaurant earlier this year, so you can now slip upstairs after a truly exceptional meal…

…(potted-pork with butter beans and crab–apple jelly; casserole of sea bass and monkfish with mussels and freshwater crayfish) and hole up in good-value luxury. There are three doubles in this road-side Inn which are all ensuite. Their décor owes something to French country chic: one room is in black and white toile de jouy, with a white-painted bed and a duck-egg-blue bathroom; another is in rose-pink with a French damask sofa; and the third has a chandelier and a powder-blue bedspread with white flowers. You are looked after by the chef-proprietor Philip Burgess and his wife Karen. There are no TVs, but you can dream of breakfast instead: scallop of beef fillet with free-range fried egg and crisp bacon lardons; herb-crusted goat’s cheese with black pudding and bacon; or scrambled eggs with wild-garlic cream.
