The exterior features a side patio with a gas barbecue, a table and chairs so you can enjoy a grilled feast on a summer evening.

Locally, you’ll find a handy village store and The Carpenters Arms in Ilsington.

Venture further into Dartmoor and visit Widecombe-in-the-Moor a pretty thatched hamlet, with a 14th century church approached via winding country lanes: enjoy lunch or afternoon tea at the Café on the Green or sample the local ale at the famous Rugglestone Inn.

Unspoiled walking and cycling paths can be found nearby on Dartmoor's southeast slopes, which lead to Teignmouth's shore.

Consider stopping for a picnic at Haytor Rocks, a granite tor with breathtaking views of Dartmoor and the South Devon Coast.

Whisky lovers can visit the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery and sample fine single-malt drinks there.

Or head to Teignmouth, a harbour town with a Victorian pier, a diving school, and a beautiful sandy beach.
