The Forest Inn at Hexworthy offers traditional lodging in the heart of Dartmoor in Devon. One of the big attractions of The Forest Inn, is that it is a dog friendly place. This is is a huge plus for many of the walkers in the area.

The accommodations are rural and quaint, clean and well priced. Downstairs there is a restaurant for around 40 where you can get home cooked meals at lunchtime and in the evenings. There is also a hearty breakfast available before you set off on your daily walk across the moors.

As a popular watering hole, there is often a crowd of locals in the bar during the evenings which can make for some great conversations. The overall ambience is very friendly and the bar area quietens down at a sensible hour, so there is no problem getting a good nights sleep.
