Home to one of the UK's top hotels
Home to one of the UK's top hotels, Gidleigh is west of Chagford and on the edge of Dartmoor National Park's high moors.

To its south west are numerous prehistoric sites on Chagford Common. Perhaps the most impressive is Scorhill Stone Circle. The views from Kestor Rock are superb. If you have the energy for a long walk, we recommend heading west to the area around Wild Tor and Watern Tor. For a less strenuous walk, try Fernworthy Forest.

Castle Drogo and the Teign Gorge
To the north east of Gidleigh are the National Trust's Castle Drogo and Teign Gorge.

In north Dartmoor National Park, Gidleigh is close to the A30 which run along the top of the Park connecting Devon and Cornwall. Exeter is about 30 minutes away to the east and the north coast of Cornwall, for example the River Camel and Estuary, is about a 90 minute drive.
