Eating Out

The Edgecumbe Arms at Cotehele in Cornwall, now converted into a cafe


The Olde Plough Inn at Bere Ferrers is our most local pub and serves up local ales, home cooked meals and regular live music. About a 10 minute drive or an hours walk from the cottage, it has a warm, friendly atmosphere and happily welcomes dogs.

The Peter Tavy Inn is a 13th century pub on the edge of Dartmoor known for their fantastic menu made using seasonal, local ingredients. A popular pub, it’s best to book in advance particularly at busy times.

The Cornish Arms in Tavistock is an award winning pub with cosy indoors both inside and outside. It’s a great place to retreat to after a day exploring the town. 


Church Lane is set in a converted Georgian building in Tavistock and serves a Mediterranean inspired menu throughout the day including stone baked pizzas and sharing boards, available to eat in or takeaway.

The Horn of Plenty opens daily for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner served in the manor house's restaurant with beautiful views across the Tamar Valley. With 2 AA rosettes for fine dining, it's a wonderful place to enjoy a special meal.

Hotel Endsleigh is a Grade I listed country house a 20 minute drive from the Count House. Afternoon tea is served in the library, or you can enjoy lunch or dinner in the restaurant and wander through the 100 acres of grounds.



The Yard Café at Weir Quay Boatyard is just a short stroll away, serving hot and cold drinks, ice creams and light lunches, with indoor and outdoor seating beside the river Tamar. Dogs are welcome too!

The Dartmoor Bakery in Yelverton has a wonderful selection of homemade breads, savouries, cakes and biscuits to take away or eat in. Minutes from Dartmoor and also on the cycle network, it's a great place to stop for breakfast before a day out in the fresh air.
