“ I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.” Steven Spielberg.

The Rock Inn



Nestling below the famous Haytor Rocks and just inside the Dartmoor National Park is the rural hamlet of Haytor Vale and the Rock Inn. This family-owned traditional English Country Inn has been offering travellers hospitality, good food and shelter since it’s foundation as a coaching inn in the mid-eighteenth century. In this modern age we pride ourselves on a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, with personal service reminiscent of a bygone age.

The inn has 9 very comfortable guest rooms each with a bathroom or shower room en suite, colour TV, direct dial telephone and beverage tray. Whether you favour a cosy picnic on the moor or want to go all out to impress with a grand gesture, the inn has everything you need including four-poster rooms and our “Romantic Getaway”.

Dining at The Rock Inn is a relaxing experience. The Inn has long been revered for the standard and quality of its food and we are privileged to be able to feature fine wines specially chosen from around the world for our guests enjoyment.
