Overnight stay and dinner
Located in a cosy corner of the Devon countryside, sandwiched between Dartmoor National Park and the stunning Tamar Valley, Tavistock has become quite a destination for the wandering gourmet. And at its heart you’ll find The Bedford Hotel, a handsome stone building harbouring 31 welcoming bedrooms, a cluster of cosy lounges and one award winning restaurant.
Head chef Raoul Ketelaars’ locally sourced and seasonal menus may tempt guests to venture into The Woburn Restaurant once inside the historic hotel, but it’s often the sweeter offerings that lure travelling foodies into the warm embrace of The Bedford.
Rumoured to be the birth place of the Devon cream tea, indulging in the ritual of afternoon tea here is an absolute must. Rich clotted cream and locally made jam – in that order, of course – accompany freshly baked scones, decadent cakes and delicate finger sandwiches crafted by the team of talented chefs. You can even add a flute of prosecco if there’s a cause for celebration.
If, like us, your cake cravings and holiday hankerings are now at an all time high, you’ll be relieved to hear that you could be sampling The Bedford’s warm hospitality and gourmet delights.
We’re treating one lucky reader to a foodie retreat at The Bedford Hotel, including a one night stay for two, three course dinner, full English breakfast and a Devon cream tea on arrival.
