Lewtrenchard Manor, Devon
|EX20 4PN, Lewdown, Devon, UNITED KINGDOM.|
Description: Lewtrenchard ManorLewtrenchard Manor on the northern edge of Dartmoor is a Jacobean manor house full of original features. Built by the Monk family around 1600 on the site of an earlier house, the manor is rich in ornate ceilings, lovely oak paneling, carvings and large open fireplaces.
Since coming to Lewtrenchard in 1988, the Murray family have enhanced the warm atmosphere of the lovely old house with family antiques, warm colours and comfortable furniture. Surrounding the house and gardens is the timeless and very peaceful Lewtrenchard Estate. Lovely walks start from the doorstep of this delightful house. You can explore the surrounding countryside of Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor.
In the restaurant at Lewtrenchard, diners are treated to a dining experience that is without equal in the South West. Food is always meticulously prepared and beautifully presented by our team of chefs headed by Tom Browning. The quality of the cuisine attracts many non-resident diners to the restaurant and the atmosphere is cheerful and relaxed, with a lively buzz of conversation. This is partly due to the friendliness of the chef and staff, but the excellence and diversity of the cellar, which featuring modestly priced bottles from every wine producing region in the world.
For most of the year, depending on the weather, our kitchen garden provides a harvest of delicious homegrown produce for our kitchen. As our head chef Matt firmly believes: the quality of the food we serve comes from the freshness of its ingredients; our kitchen garden gives us the perfect opportunity to pick and serve delicious fresh food to you within hours. Martin, our Head gardener, liaises closely with Matt and are constantly tweaking and evolving the planting to provide a larger selection, better quantities and longer harvesting seasons of the vegetables produced.
