Situated amid the beautiful Dartmoor National Park, with its heather clad rolling hills, ancient woodland and stone tors, this family-run country house hotel in South Devon is bursting with traditional character and friendly service from people ready to make you feel at home.

The hotel boasts an irresistible combination of country charm, award-winning food expertly made by fresh Devon produce, with friendly service and outstanding countryside views. The Ilsington hotel has one of the most acclaimed restaurants in South Devon, with a two AA rosette restaurant offering the perfect balance between traditional classics and contemporary dishes, not forgetting spectacular views overlooking unspoilt Devonshire countryside.

The hotel can be enjoyed all year round come rain or shine, with its unique countryside location, wide open spaces, rushing rivers and steeping valleys all on offer. Get on your bike, explore the area on horseback or just simply walk your way around the moors.

The Ilsington is one of only a handful of dog friendly hotels in Devon with dog friendly rooms available so that your four-legged friends can enjoy Dartmoor just as much as you.

Our bedrooms are important to us, so we offer a great selection of hotel rooms ranging from standard to stylish deluxe suites. All the bedrooms here come with fantastic panoramic views of the ever-changing beautiful Dartmoor landscape.

If you are planning a Devon wedding, this hotel is ideal for smaller intimate weddings with rooms suitable for both the ceremony and reception. We can accommodate up to 60 without the hotel needing to be booked exclusively (dependent on time of year and entertainment requirements).

For larger weddings over and above 60 people the hotel can be booked exclusively for your special day. With use of the lounges, restaurant, and Hound Tor Suite, along with the grounds of the hotel, this gives you plenty of flexibility to have the wedding of your dreams.
