Truly get away from it all on this unique tour of one of Britain's most famous, yet mysterious, areas. Set at the base of Haytor on Dartmoor, The Moorland Hotel boasts 11 acres of landscaped grounds, paddocks and woodland. Wild ponies are often found grazing nearby and the open expanse of the moor provides opportunities for adventurous walking along with breath taking views. Steeped in history, The Moorland Hotel saw Agatha Christie write her very first novel over a two week stay, The Mysterious Affair at Styles. Accommodation is half board. There is a lift to most floors and all rooms include, tea & coffee making facilities, television, en-suite bathrooms with walk-in shower, hairdryer, iron and ironing board.
