The Hotel and Family Accommodation

The Hotel was originally a Manor House which has been extensively extended over many years to accommodate the high demand of families wanting to visit Devon and partake in the vast selection of sport and craft activities on offer. You can choose your preferences of activities the night before and state your preference on sign up lists. If the sessions are full then you can advise reception and if there is a demand then extra sessions will be sorted where possible. The hotel's own description “a 3 star hotel with 5 star facilities” describes this place perfectly. If you are expecting 5 star decor and rooms then you will be disappointed. However the rooms are warm comfortable and clean with plenty of hot water. The en-suite bedrooms have a TV if you should need 30 minutes downtime and come equipped with coffee making facilities, hairdryer and all towels and linen are provided for your stay.

Families can stay in family rooms, family suites or interconnecting rooms at either the Manor House or Ashbury Hotel. These hotels are 2 miles apart and the Ashbury Hotel is the place to stay if golf is your main focus. The family suites have 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1 interconnecting lobby for extra space and peace of mind. Families with five children are the most the hotel can accommodate in a single room. Cots and highchairs can also be provided.

A number of bedrooms are fitted with disabled wet rooms. These do not have steps within them and have a fold down seat in the shower area. Drop down bars and grab rails are positioned to assist around the wet room.

All breaks include full board within the price of your stay. Breakfast is buffet style continental or full English. Lunch serves a large selection from both the hot and cold buffet. Dinner is a 4 course evening meal with additional a la carte choices.


This sporting and craft complex with spa facilities has 2 full-board hotels which are located 1.7 miles from Okehampton Castle and 6 miles from Yes Tor peak.
