Forder Gardens Bed & Breakfast
Forder Gardens comprises two Gate houses and a walled garden built in 1898 by The Rt. Hon. Sir Harry Trelawney Eve, Justice of the Peace for Devon, a Barrister and liberal party politician. He was born in London, the only son of Thomas Eve, a Jamaican merchant.
His intention was to build 'Forder Gardens' for his son, who was sadly killed in action before the project was completed. The main estate house was never built and only the walls and Gate houses were finished. The property has since been extended to include additional accommodation.
We can offer accommodation with/without breakfast according to your requirements and budget. We have double rooms with en-suite facilities and family/group accommodation if required. For more information regarding our bed and breakfast accommodation visit our website
Opposite the Gate houses lies a gate taking you straight onto “Parke” - a tranquil country park owned by the National Trust, with lovely walks beside the river Bovey and a home farm cafe which provides delicious, freshly cooked food from the menu board. Real coffee, teas, cakes and ices.
The old railway line, which forms part of the Dartmoor Way cycle route, is only 5 minutes away which makes us ideally located for cyclists. We can offer secure parking for cars and bicycles. We also run Beekeeping Courses for those who are interested in finding out more about this fascinating insect and the threats it faces. links to booking courses can be found on our website.
