Staying at The Edgemoor Hotel

The Edgemoor is an independent, family-run hotel right next to Dartmoor – perfect for countryside getaways, nature walks, and weekend breaks.

Built in 1879, The Edgemoor Hotel was once Bovey Tracey Grammar School for boys. That history is still very much alive today and can be traced throughout the hotel rooms. We’re proud to present a range of historical stays with charming themed décor.


All rooms at The Edgemoor have tea and coffee making facilities, a dressing table, a television, and mirrors. Free Wi-Fi is available in all rooms and throughout the hotel. Irons and ironing boards are available for guest use.
