Dinner at The Two Bridges Hotel

The Two Bridges Hotel enjoys the most wonderful setting in the heart of Dartmoor, perched on the banks of the beautiful West Dart River. Whatever time of year, the surrounding moorland guarantees an atmospheric arrival at this historic hotel. Last Sunday evening I was joined by Moss and her owner Julia for dinner. It was misty and mysterious when we arrived, and the Hotel’s log fires and gleaming brass work provided exactly the kind of warm welcome we needed.

Kayaking on the River Dart

Dartmoor is blessed with one of the best paddle-able rivers in the country, the River Dart. The beauty of it flowing through Dartmoor’s deep wooded valleys, its easy access and the various river sections to accommodate almost all abilities make it widely regarded as the most popular river to paddle in the country. On its busiest weekends the Dart welcomes a couple hundred paddlers and its Facebook group, Kayaking on the River Dart, boasts 3.6k members consisting of paddlers from across the UK.

New Winter Menu at Cranks Kitchen, Dartington

I was delighted to be asked back to Cranks Kitchen at Dartington to review their new winter menu, unfortunately I couldn't make it but my trusted foodie friend, Julia, was up for the challenge! For those of us non-vegetarians, the prospect of dining at such a long-established and famous veggie restaurant can seem a little daunting… But fear not you carnivores! Cranks is everything that is good about vegetarian food: Wonderfully tasty, lots of choice and attractively presented.
