Devon's stunning country house hotel is celebrating a brilliant triple win in the 2014 Devon Tourism Awards, reinforcing their name as one of the best hotels in the county and beyond. 

Receiving a gold award for 'Small Hotel of the Year' and silver for both 'Taste of Devon' and 'Venue & Business Tourism' means that The Horn of Plenty is hitting the mark in a number of impressive ways.

Julie Leivers, joint owner of The Horn of Plenty, comments: “We couldn’t be happier.  It’s fantastic to be recognised for the quality of our food, our accommodation and our weddings in these prestigious awards."

Not only does the hotel boast prime position on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in five acres of captivating countryside overlooking the Tamar Valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty, but it maintains a long-standing reputation for its fine dining restaurant spanning over 40 years since it first opened its doors in 1967 by Sonia Stevenson - the first lady to ever be awarded a Michelin star - with the same high quality being tirelessly pursued ever since.

Julie Leivers and her partner Damien Pease took over The Horn of Plenty over 4 years ago and have strived to maintain the reputation for fine dining, while improving the accommodation by refining the existing rooms and adding six further rooms, which opened in June.

The hotel has gradually gained a reputation as one of the South West’s favourite wedding venues, offering excellent food, superb views and bespoke packages.  “Being small and independent means we can make each wedding completely individual, and we’ve a great team here for whom nothing is too much trouble,” adds Julie.
