Experience outstanding views and distinctive luxury at The Horn of Plenty. Set in beautiful, secluded grounds, The Horn of Plenty is a luxurious boutique hotel and fine-dining restaurant with 16 unique rooms.


With postcard-perfect views, The Horn of Plenty is nestled on the border of Devon and Cornwall, overlooking the famous Tamar Valley towards Kit Hill and Bodmin moor. A stunning, independently owned 4-star Country House Hotel in Devon, The Horn of Plenty boasts a 2 AA Rosette Restaurant and 16 individually designed rooms.


The 'Horn of Plenty' is a symbol of abundance and nourishment.

Just 10 minutes from the historic market town of Tavistock and the wilderness of Dartmoor, The Horn of Plenty is only a short trip to many of the South West's historic National Trust houses and glorious gardens. Intimate and stylish, the house itself is framed with wisteria, magnificent against its idyllic backdrop.



The main house dates back to 1866. It was built for the Duke of Bedford’s Mine Captain, James Richards, who was responsible for the mining of copper and tin in the Tamar Valley. The house remained inextricably linked to mining throughout the boom years until 1918, when it became part of the Bedford Estate.  


With numerous nature trails, art galleries and exhibits from local craftspeople, you will find plenty to occupy your time before returning for a glorious afternoon tea on the italianesque patio. Ramble across rolling hills or cosy up and enjoy a book in the library, or by the log fire in the drawing room.


Maintaining their local focus, the wonderful team at The Horn of Plenty are all locals themselves. Going above and beyond - from cake on arrival and your desired newspaper in the morning - the service at this boutique hotel mirrors the excellence of the mouth-watering food, style and scenery.


On a clear day you can still see the chimneys of several of the Cornish mines from the patio and restaurant.


In 1967, the house was converted into a restaurant, which is where their rich foodie history began – founder Sonia Stevenson was the first British woman to be awarded a Michelin star! Their carefully curated and acutely refined menu makes the most of local produce, offering a unique fine-dining experience full of flavour, vibrancy and variety.


In 1985, the restaurant became a hotel with 10 bedrooms. With a further update in June 2014, the Coach House was extended with 6 additional rooms, bringing the total room count to 16.


As a fairly new addition, the Coach House is modern with twists of character that perfectly compliment the original house and rustic location. Each room is light, airy and spacious; most with views overlooking the impressive surroundings.


From bathrobes to bottled water, the attention to detail is clear. Unwind with a luxurious bath or a drink in the dining room.

Relaxation and rejuvenation are at the heart of your stay here. Stroll through the garden, admire the stars, enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast alongside views of the valley and explore the surrounding countryside. Beautiful in all weathers and enduringly popular for Weddings and Christmas, The Horn of Plenty is perfect at any time of the year.


A home away from home, The Horn of Plenty shows that Devon isn’t just about the seaside; with the most stunning countryside to explore, 2 National Parks and 5 designated areas of outstanding natural beauty nearby.



The Horn of Plenty are totally dog friendly too. Dogs are welcome in designated bedrooms, and in the library. They’ll love the Horns 5 acres of gardens, and the 25km walks in the Tamar Valley below. They’ll also adore the complimentary “doggie dinner” on their first night too.


Doused in history yet forward-thinking in style and cuisine, The Horn of Plenty is the perfect getaway for those who appreciate unparalleled views, fresh and vibrant food and a refreshing focus on pioneering all things local.

Having only been open for 12 weeks, this mother daughter combo have well and truly settled in to this bustling market town. Their mission is simple; to create a truly versatile space that serves great food and drink, whilst bringing the community together through distinctive events.


Fika is a concept, a state of mind, an attitude and an important part of Swedish culture. It means making time for friends and family whilst sharing a cup of coffee or tea and a little something to eat.


Offering an array of locally sourced and freshly made wholesome food, coffee and a variety of loose-leaf tea, the space itself is light and inspiring. It's this winning combination that makes Fika the perfect place for you to relax, people watch and soak up the atmosphere.


The eatery also works closely with the local community to deliver distinctive events throughout the year, from workshops to sushi evenings.

Inspired by her travels through Australia and her vast experience in the coffee industry, Abbie saw an exciting opportunity to bring a trendy independent coffee shop to her hometown.


With a keen interest in interior design, Abbie designed and created a space that effortlessly reflects a Scandinavian charm through bursts of greenery, clean cut lines and a welcoming atmosphere.


The menu itself is Scandi inspired with a delicious mix of healthy, light and fresh food. Boasting a small but practical open kitchen, guests can get an inside look into the making of each dish.


From fluffy sourdough bread and vegan cakes to freshly made salads and garnishes of seaweed pearls, the menu is carefully curated, with lots of veggie and vegan options too.

Fika takes their coffee just as seriously as they take their food. From creamy oat milk cappuccinos to revitalising turmeric lattes, each cup is locally sourced from Brazier Coffee.

The Kitchen Table is an outside catering business based in Totnes, serving at events in South Devon since 2011. They are a small outfit of creative and innovative chefs who use seasonal, often organic and beautiful locally grown and made ingredients (from within 30 miles of Totnes) to create feasts, dinners, party food, lunches and so much more! They cater for weddings, funerals, birthday celebrations and office lunches for groups of 8 - 140 people.


One of the many things TKT staff love is the variety of venues they get to visit... from grand houses, to farms & barns, to village halls and family homes, corporate venues and businesses... the variety of clientele is astonishing!



Everything is hand made from scratch, with love, from the ketchup to the stock. With an exciting seasonal menu, TKT works with you to provide a feast with something for everyone.

Sima, who owns and manages the business, has a wealth of travel experience which inspires much of her cooking. Members of her team also bring their interests and experiences to the menu planning and recipe creation from a love of foraging and herbalism to an interest in special dietary requirements. 



Sima's background in special needs has led her back, many years after working in respite care to supporting young adults in Totnes to learn kitchen skills with work experience and workshops with Lifeworks, which she is loving!


In addition to the catering, The Kitchen Table unit is open Mon - Fri 12 - 2pm March - December selling lunches for takeaway (or sit in). This is a small part of the business which enables the team to experiment with recipes, use up ingredients or dishes from events and interface with the public on a regular basis. The menu is mostly vegetarian with often-times a vegan option and almost always a gluten free option with cake an occasional treat too! On Tuesdays and Thursdays Beanbug coffee trike parks up outside and serves his delicious organic coffee to lunch customers.



Caring for the environment is at the core of what TKT does; They reduce their plastic use wherever they can; have made some bees wax wraps to use instead of cling wrap, they use recycled parchment paper, foil & washing up sponges as well as only using plant based cleaning products. The ingredients are sourced consciously and with love with some fantastic relationships forged with local growers and producers. 


The team make most things from scratch from the ketchup to the butter pastry - they buy just a few things ready made (bread baking has never been Sima's forte! And mayonnaise is cheaper and delicious from Laydilay Organic eggs!) and the team love finding new ways to be better at what they do... be it environmentally conscious, aesthetically pleasing or coming up with new delicious recipes.
