The Highwayman Inn, Sourton, Dartmoor National Park

The Highwayman Inn, Sourton, Dartmoor National Park

Britain's most unusual inn

The Highwayman Inn bills itself as Britain's most unusual inn. The eccentric interior is packed with artefacts and curiosities. The Highwayman Inn is highly recommended if you're looking for something (very) different.



The A30 skirts the northern border of Dartmoor National Park as it runs between Exeter and Cornwall. Near Okehampton, the A386 runs down the west flank of the high moor passing through the village Sourton. Situated on the side of the road, with plenty of parking, is The Highwayman Inn. It's a superb location below Sourton Tors which provide immense views of Dartmoor, West Devon, the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Cornwall.

We've positioned The Highwayman Inn on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location.



As mentioned, there's plenty of parking by the pub and it's clearly visible on Google's satellite imagery.


Pub Garden

There's a beer garden and children's outdoor play area.
