The Rams Head Inn Country Hotel

Devon, Britain

Smart country inn with seasonal food, Red Rock brewery beers and comfortable, fresh rooms. Events, live music, walks on the moors


14 rooms


Rooms sleep 1 - 3


A coaching inn in the 1600s – now a smart gastro inn and a hub for the village too. Simon and Darren have renovated throughout and have a real passion for the place. Simon is a bit of a magpie; he’s been collecting market finds, prints, paintings, maps… for years, remembers the provenance of every piece and likes to shuffle things around. The bar and dining area has cushioned chairs, polished wood floors, pale sofas, wood-burners and tables laid with shiny glasses. You’ll find rotating local brewery ales and Red Rock beers, a good range of gins and wine choice suggestions with the menu. Food is seasonal and mostly local: pigeon with lentils, Exmoor beef, lobster ravioli, followed by lemon tart or cinnamon apple crumble perhaps. Bedrooms are trad with a twist: floral and patterned wallpapers, dark furniture, and pristine white tubs and basins; one of the three ground floor ones has a big wood stove. The cheerful paved garden has red walls, pots of flowers and bunting. Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks on the doorstep, sandy beaches 20 minutes; join the Tarka trail – dogs are welcome in all the rooms.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Gill Churchill

  • This 17th Century Coaching Inn has been tastefully restored by the current owners to now offer a eclectic mix of antique with the new. Uneven walls, and beams are complemented with hints of modern comforts. Open fires and welcoming atmosphere add to this!
  • We have a Secret Garden that has been designed in a style that will surely take you back to your Mediterranean holidays; perfect place to enjoy a gin from our ever-popular gin menu.
  • One of our bedrooms has adopted the nick-name of 'Bednobs and Broomsticks' due to its brass bednobs and king size, plus its' recent inglenook fireplace with functioning wood-burning stove.
  • Since taking over the property in June 2015 the owners have completely transformed this coaching inn to it's former glory including unearthing a 17th Century flagstone floor; which had been buried under a concrete floor.
  • In the first 16 months of trading, this ever-popular Inn has grown and grown resulting in AA 5 star guest accommodation rating and 2 AA rosette for culinary excellence. Not bad in less than 2 years!
  • The key point of operating to the owners and in turn the staff at this one-of-a-kind inn is ensuring you are in a home away from home.... comforts, relaxing atmosphere and welcome to all, with a twist of finesse. The perfect elements to a perfect escape.
