The Old School offers luxurious and comfortable surroundings with services equal to that of a small hotel or country house. Built in 1875 many of the buildings historic features such as the exposed beams and bell tower have been retained. Our welcoming and friendly nature is matched by our desire to be environmentally friendly and ethical in our values.

Our lovely breakfast’s include homemade bread, freshly baked each day and a selection of homemade conserves and marmalade! Our local butcher Howells of Tavistock provide our meats and black pepper sausages. Bacon is dry cured in our kitchen by our Chef and jolly tasty it is too! For those guests with a discerning palette we offer evening dinner in our licensed dining room (please book in advance). Our food is freshly prepared and locally sourced by our Chef Chris who trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine in London.

Located within Dartmoor National Park the picturesque village of Horrabridge has 2 pubs, village store/post office and more. Close to the Cornish border, the Old School makes the perfect holiday base to explore Cornwall as well as Devon and Dartmoor.

The nearby Drakes Trail is a 21 mile cycling and walking route linking Tavistock with Plymouth. Features of the Trail include Gem Bridge (replacing an older viaduct), and Grenofen Tunnel. More challenging is the Dartmoor Way – 95 miles around Dartmoor! In addition there are many cycling and walking routes from the Old School.
