Welcome To The Bedford Hotel. Once the Tavistock retreat of the Dukes of Bedford, and now yours!

The Bedford Hotel sits proudly at the heart of the award-winning Dartmoor market town of Tavistock. Birthplace of Sir Francis Drake, the town of Tavistock is steeped in history just waiting to be explored. You’ll also find a town centre full of independent shops, a bustling pannier market, and a pretty park running alongside the River Tavy and the canal.

Tavistock is a perfect base from which to explore the whole of Dartmoor, and the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The maritime city of Plymouth, with its spectacular Plymouth Hoe and waterfront, is little over half an hour away.

Step inside The Bedford Hotel and you’ll find a welcoming bar, cosy lounges, a very attractive oak-panelled restaurant, and 31 individually styled bedrooms. Bedrooms range from comfortable Classic rooms to indulgent Four Poster rooms with spa baths.

The food at The Bedford Hotel is a delight, and has been recognised with awards from Taste of the West. A strong emphasis on local, seasonal produce, brought together with flair by head chef Raoul Ketelaars and his talented team.

A welcome combination of comfort and style, delicious food, fine wines, warm hospitality and impeccable service.

Call The Bedford Hotel on 01822 613221 to pick your perfect room, book a table in the restaurant, or find out about special offers and breaks.
