Guests at Moorland View have complimentary membership of five-star spa and country club, with up to 25% off treatments, food and drink. The most luxurious spa treatment is an hour-and-a-half long aromatherapy massage. Bliss!

Michelin-starred Gidleigh Park is a grand Tudor-style country manor hotel, set in 107 acres of Dartmoor woodland outside Chagford.
