The elegant 4-star Moorland Garden Hotel is located on the edge of Dartmoor near Yelverton. It has 9 acres of tranquil gardens. There are 44 individually decorated bedrooms, each with tea/coffee making facilities and complimentary Wi-Fi. We think that the Moorland Garden, which blends the contemporary and traditional, and is in a perfect location for exploring the area, will appeal to Roadmark customers.
