The Horn Of Plenty

The majority of Devon and Cornwall is within an hour’s drive of this elegant 19th-century country house hotel, a stone’s throw from the Tamar Valley. For starters, the views of patchwork fields and dense forest are sensational. The other big draw is the two AA Rosette fine dining restaurant that has just been completely re-built so that now the doors open onto a huge new, valley-facing, two-level terrace (the best spot for afternoon tea). The food is modern British, made from locally sourced produce and exquisitely presented. Head chef Ashley Wright’s six-course signature tasting menu is a favourite with guests, as is the three night Gourmet Break offer. The rest of the social spaces have been refreshed, too, so there’s a fabulous new bar and a contemporary drawing room with subtle Moroccan design references. The 16 stylish rooms are split between the main house (built in 1866 with high ceilings, huge windows and exposed fireplaces), the original coach house and a sleek new wing – the best come with a private balcony overlooking the pretty walled garden.
