About the hotel
If you are seeking privacy and comfort, with a touch of luxury and access to some of the most beautiful countryside, beaches, historic houses and gardens The Drake Manor is an ideal base for seeing these sights Buckland Monachorum is a charming unspoilt village within the Dartmoor National Park, surrounded by glorious countryside. Golf, fishing and superb walking are all available, and for those seeking a more leisurely or even cultural break the area offers a diversity of historical, architechtural and horticultural treasures. The Drake Manor Inn was originally built to house the skilled workers constructing St Andrews Church in the 12th century.
It was aquired in the 1600's by Sir Francis Drake as part of the Buckland Abbey estate and was used as a maltings, where grain was steeped and prepared for brewing. However it has always been a hostelry welcoming travellers and visitors ever since. The accommodation retains features from the original building with exposed oak timbers and vaulted ceilings throughout, creating a delightfully bright and airy space. Luxurious furnishings and accessories reflect proprietor Mandy's attention to detail. The accommodation is accessed from the ground floor via the original narrow winding staircase, into which you enter the open plan living area. The accommodation further encompasses two double bedrooms and bathroom with bath and fixed overhead shower. The Inn under the ownership of Mandy and her competent smiling team is renowned for its friendly atmosphere and home cooked food. Locally sourced fresh produce is used on the regular menu and the daily specials board. Enjoy the south facing sunny garden in the summer and woodburners in the Bars in the winter months, fine real ales and our interesting selection of wines. Breakfast makes the most of our own pork sausages and bacon and local free range eggs, as well as other lovely produce.

Lovely East Devon Traditional English Inn
Stayed Friday and Saturday to meet up with friends who have moved nearby, really enjoyed our time at Drake Manor Inn.
Mandy and her Staff were welcoming and helpful, lovely accommodation, rooms were charming, clean and warm. Great breakfasts, and evening meals looked so good we didn't need to find anywhere else, indeed our friends joined us for dinner at at the Inn. Lovely location with interesting history, would certainly stay there next time.
