Located on the top of Dartmoor, Tor Royal is an ideal stopover on Dartmoor for a stay in Devon, with direct access to Dartmoor National Park. Tor Royal Farm offers double, single and twin en-suite rooms, with a choice of bath or shower, furnished with period furniture. Also available are ground floor room decorated in Art Deco style.

Tor Royal dates from 1785 when Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt with his plan of farming Dartmoor started building his home on the Peat Cott/Whiteworks road. Tor Royal Farm is Grade II listed with a walled courtyard featuring a Bell Tower. The interior boasts a domed ceiling with lantern and an unusual plaster frieze depicting the Princetown Tramway, the plans of which were reputedly drawn up in the house. There is a single storey suite of rooms with a fleur-de-lis frieze and ornately decorated doors obtained from Carlton House in London when it was demolished. The House has arched doorways to the domed reception room and many original Georgian features. A walled garden below the Devonport leat has been roofed over and now houses cattle and sheep in the winter months. Tor Royal has remained in Duchy ownership through the years and in the early 1900’s the then Duke of Cornwall took an interest in the breeding of Dartmoor Ponies at Tor Royal Stud registering ownership of 26 Dartmoor Mares. The one notable pony Stallion to be bred at Tor Royal being ’The Leat’ whose breeding was a result of a local Moorland Mare and the Arab Stallion ’Dwarka’. The Leat proved to be a very successful stallion and many of today’s successful Dartmoor ponies have his blood running in their veins.
