The Sandy Park Inn, Chagford, Devon, TQ13 8JW


The Sandy Park Inn near Chagford reopened in April 2017 with great success and cheers of appreciation!  Old friends and new have flooded back and there is a real buzz again about the old place.

It’s a lovely old building and has a great atmosphere, but please note that we bought the place to save it (tragically, it was closed, possibly to get change of use) so we are not doing rooms just for the time being (please see Places to Stay above). 

A Little History

The Sandy Park Inn was thought to be built some time in the 17th century, but possibly even earlier. The thatched-roof inn, set on the edge of Dartmoor, is 1.1 miles from Castle Drogo and 3 miles from the 17th century Fingle Bridge. The building is listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act for its special architectural or historic interest.

The Sandy Park Inn forms part of an attractive group of listed buildings on the crossroads of the main A382 and two other minor country lanes. The Old Forge (now residential) which lies opposite, was once a part of the inn, possibly where the brewing was done.
