Purchased by Trevor & Diane Crouchen in July 2008, The Dartmoor Lodge Hotel, Ashburton Devon is now back in private ownership. Nestled on the edge of South Dartmoor, the Dartmoor Lodge Hotel is easily accessible from The A38, midway between Exeter and Plymouth.
The friendly atmosphere of this family run business is proving popular with both commercial and leisure clients. Our 'Hands on' approach, with us working as part of the team, encourages our staff to relax and converse in an efficient, polite manner, whilst retaining a friendly, but professional service. We are immensely proud of our staff and if you have checked out reviews of the Dartmoor Lodge will have already noted that they receive well deserved praise. It is this Ethos that we believe, encourages our guests to return time after time.

With oak beams and an inviting real fire in our Bar and Restaurant the Dartmoor Lodge Hotel offers a real 'home from home' atmosphere, choose from either our light meals or full a la carte menu, using 'genuine' locally grown and bred produce. Members of CAMRA we have at least four well kept real Ales at any one time, most of which are local to the area.
We offer free wifi in the Reception, Restaurant & Bar, but regret that the wifi in our hotel rooms is chargeable. This is to contribute (but by no means pay!) towards the charge made to us to supply a good quality wifi throughout the whole of the hotel. We have tried in vain to use extenders to pass the wifi signal through the hotel, but because of the length of the property the signal was being lost in the hotel rooms.
