Local real ales friendly atmosphere and a large open fire.Escape the Hurley-burly of modern day life and the intrusion of television loud music and fruit machines and enjoy old world charm real food drink and good company at The Packhorse.

Built in the medieval times as a resting place for the packhorse trains that carried goods between the farmers and miners on Dartmoor and the trading towns closer to the coast today it offers comfortable well equipped bedrooms and a home cooked breakfast with all dietary needs catered for. Should you wish to eat we have a wide range of fresh local produce home cooked meals to chose from. And at a tangent to tradition our chef is fast making a name for himself with his pizza specialties.The property is ideally located in the centre of the historic village of South Brent close to the A38 Devon Expressway halfway between Exeter and Plymouth.
