The ultimate Dartmoor escape for jaded big city types.

Weeke Barton is the ultimate Londoners' escape from the big city, since that's exactly what its owners, Sam and Jo, did several years ago, when they threw it all in and moved down here from trendy east London. It's a long way from Hackney, for sure, a big, thick-walled stone longhouse that has been here 500 years and they hope will be here another 500, still providing the kind of place any London escapee would be happy to pitch up at. There is a studied naturalness to the place that almost enforces relaxation – stylishly decorated rooms with big comfy beds and natural stone en-suite bathrooms with posh toiletries; a lounge with squishy sofas and magazines; a cosy snug with honesty bar; and a dining room equipped with a big slate table at which they serve a civilised-hours breakfast (with their own Dartmoor granola) and an excellent home-cooked dinner on request.  The property is also set in its own five acres of grounds so there is plenty of room to properly relax and enjoy the amazing night skies. There is free wifi and Sonos music systems, but interestingly no TV reception – just flatscreen TVs on which you can watch a choice of DVDs from their extensive library. There's also a local pub that does decent food, and dog are welcome in all rooms if you can manage to keep them of the beds. All in all, it's a fabulous place from which to explore Dartmoor or to just kick back and relax.
