The Bedford Hotel

Step into The Bedford Hotel and experience a day you will never forget.

Located in the ancient town of Tavistock, and situated on the site of a former Benedictine Abbey overlooking the town square, The Bedford Hotel has over 200 years of history as a first class hotel; catering for visitors and locals alike. The Hotel was previously a private dwelling for the Dukes of Bedford for over 100 years.

The Bedford Hotel offers beautiful bedrooms (some historic, some modern and four poster rooms), candlelit award-winning restaurants, comfy lounges and cosy bars serving their own home-brewed real ale from their brewery in Princetown. The Hotel offers three beautiful reception rooms, and a formal walled garden.

The Woburn Restaurant provides a flawless backdrop for civil ceremonies. The team at The Bedford will lay down a red carpet strewn with rose petals for you to walk down in this stunning classical room. At the heart of the hotel is a glass gallery which has been built around the Abbey walls. Full of light and air-conditioned, it is the perfect setting for your wedding breakfast.

From the moment you step through the doors of The Bedford you are assured of a relaxing and pleasant stay; the team guarantee that you will leave with many happy memories of your special day.
