Once the excitement (and hard work) of the wedding day is over it’s time for a treat designed especially for two. Upon check in to one of the hotel’s sumptuous suites the happy couple can toast their nuptials with a bottle of Champagne, before enjoying a delicious three course dinner in The Wildflower Restaurant with its views over the beautiful gardens.
The twosome can choose to set off on a private gourmet picnic adventure a deux into the hotel’s wildflower meadow (available May through September) or indulge in a Devonshire Cream Tea for two in the privacy of their suite.
Activities to be enjoyed nearby include exploring Dartmoor’s dramatic scenery on foot, by bike or on horseback, enjoying Plymouth’s magnificent harbour from the waterfront or on a boat trip, or sampling local delights such as Plymouth Gin and Devonshire fudge. Dartmoor’s untamed wilderness is the perfect place to indulge in a spot of stargazing, or take to the skies in a hot air balloon.
The Moorland Garden Hotel Mini-Moon package costs £320 for two including three nights’ accommodation in a suite, Champagne on arrival, a three course dinner on one evening and full Devonshire breakfasts. A Gourmet Picnic costs from £48 for two or add a Devonshire Cream Tea for two from £11.90, pre-booking essential. Visitwww.moorlandgardenhotel.co.uk.?
