There are 108 acres of garden and woodland to romp around in, as well as a croquet lawn and boules pitch. Staff can arrange canoeing on the River Tamar, horse riding on Dartmoor, and falconry displays, among other activities. Hire bikes can be delivered to the hotel. There's table tennis and plenty of board games for rainy days.
The hotel prefers the restaurant to be adults-only in the evening, but meals can be served from 6pm. Alternatively, the entire family can dine together in the private dining room. There isn't a children's menu, but the chef will prepare anything a child likes, from fresh chicken to scrambled eggs. Also happy to heat up milk and baby food.
