Out and about and around the area
The Kestor Inn is named from the tor it was built from in the early 20th Century. A country inn in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park that offers good food, award winning cask ales with five en-suite bedrooms to stay. The Kestor is set back to admire its beautiful surroundings with very envious views.
Just a 15 minute drive off the A38, the Kestor is located a two minute drive away from the very popular Becky Falls, Hound Tor and the world famous tor, Bowerman's Nose. If you like to walk, ramble, cycle, horse ride, motorbike, there is easy access to endless countryside and attractions for you from our door step. It is a fantastic place from which to explore the whole region of Dartmoor, from the moors, tors and villages, to the beaches and seasides of Devon and the rest of the South West of England. Our location is an ideal stop over for holiday makers, a weekend break, a short stay or business trip.
Bought in the Autumn of 2019, The Kestor has now had a well and truly earned "face lift". Everywhere has been modernised and tastefully decorated, the outside area has brand new seating, nothing has been left untouched.
Our guest accommodation provides five comfortable rooms, all having an en suite bathroom in each. One of which can sleep up to four people. Four rooms have a choice of either twin bedded or super king beds for that bit of luxury, three have glorious views over Dartmoor and the ground floor room is very popular for people who find stairs an issue. One of our rooms is now dog friendly for up to two dogs to stay if you are wanting a dog wallking holiday.
Our bar and restaurant offer a great range of cask ales, draught lagers and ciders, wines and spirits, as well as an extensive menu of fresh home cooked hearty good pub food to whet your appetite. Our Head Chef creates fantastic meals; his Sunday Carvery is very popular with the locals of Manaton and beyond and his food is definitely worth a visit. We have Wifi throughout, a lawned beer garden for those warm sunny days, two log fires to warm you on those cosy winter nights, a sheltered pagoda and a small car park for our guests to park.
Bovey Tracey is just down the road, Newton Abbot is approximately 10 miles away, making us a perfect place to stay over when the race course holds its meetings or for business guests who are visiting the area and beyond. We can offer an early business breakfast if required.
So whether you are on holiday, on business or just passing through, a visit here is highly recommended.
Please telephone us in advance if you would like to bring your doggy companions with you or for any other information.
