In line with the UK government safety restrictions, we have had to close The Horn of Plenty effective 21st March 2020.  

We have contacted all guests who have booked before 8th May, and will contact guests who had booked to stay in May as and when further Government announcements are made.  

Existing bookings

For those of you who have pre-paid, we’ll happily credit your booking account for the full balance of your stay, with the option to rebook any available dates during the next 12 months. 

When booking new dates, if you are transferring to a lower rate than you have already paid, we will refund the difference. If you move your booking to a higher-rate period, you will need to pay the outstanding balance.

New bookings

We are currently accepting new bookings from Saturday 9th May, although we do not know whether we will be permitted to re-open on that date.

We have temporarily relaxed our cancellation policy, so that all new leisure bookings can be cancelled free of charge up to 24 hours in advance of your stay.

Gift Vouchers

We will automatically extend all gift vouchers, so they can be used any time until 31st December 2020.

Event bookings

If your event is coming up soon, we will be in touch soon to discuss rescheduling for a date beyond June 2020.

We have 4 rooms in the main house- Two ‘Best’, One ‘Deluxe’ and One ‘Classic’

We don’t recommend walking straight from the hotel as there are no footpaths. We do however have 5 acres of grounds which are lovely to explore all year round.  The Tamar Valley has some 25km of walks, just a 2 minute drive away.

12 in total.  6 are in the original Coach House wing, the other 6 are in the New Coach House, which was added in 2014.  We have all room types in the Coach House (2 x Best, 6 x Deluxe, 2 x Classic and 2 x Cosy).

Only guide dogs are allowed in our restaurant. Your dog is welcome to join you for pre-dinner drinks in the library but unfortunately not for your meal. 

Yes, they do differ in style.  The New Coach House rooms are large and contemporary.  The original Coach House rooms are a tad smaller with a modern  country feel. The Main House rooms are more traditional, but with a contemporary finish.  

Most rooms (incl all the Original Coach House rooms)  have balconies with stunning views over the Tamar Valley and/or the Devon countryside.   

The Coach House is just a minute’s level walk from the restaurant, which is located in the Main House. 

All Coach House rooms (Rooms 5 – 16) are dog friendly. Our library upstairs in the Main House is also dog friendly, ideal for morning coffee, afternoon tea or pre-dinner drinks.  Not forgetting our gardens which all  four legged friends are welcome to explore! 

Yes, we have ramp access to the Main House and an accessible ground floor bedroom in the Original Coach House (Room 5)  with a walk-in shower.  For further details please see our access statement.

We do not have an onsite spa or gym, but we are able to provide in room treatments if booked in advance. Our friendly team of local experienced therapists are highly skilled in bringing you the ultimate experience of both remedy and relaxation.

Yes, we are able to accommodate families. We do not have interconnecting rooms or family suites, but we are able to provide extra beds, cots, and high teas for children on request.  We are also very happy to arrange for allocated rooms to be situated next door to one another if specified at the time of booking.

Yes, almost all our rooms can be double or twin.

Check in is from 3pm.  However if you plan to arrive early, please let us know and we‘ll do our best to have your room available.  

Check out time is 11am.

Breakfast is served between 8.30am and 10am. Please ask at reception if you would prefer an earlier breakfast, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Unfortunately we do not have any lifts. However, 7 guest rooms are located on the ground floor.  All our other rooms are on the first floor.  Our reception team are happy to help with  luggage.  

Our nearest train station is located at Gunnislake, a 5 minute drive from the hotel. Trains from Gunnislake into Plymouth depart regularly throughout the day.

It’s a very scenic trip.  The highlight of the journey is when the train slowly creeps down over the Calstock viaduct and you are 120 feet high looking down on the river.  Dogs are welcome on the train.
