Warren House Inn, Postbridge, Dartmoor National Park

Warren House Inn, Postbridge, Dartmoor National Park

Highest pub in southern England

Essential visiting. The highest pub in southern England, the Warren House Inn looks out across one of the most beautiful areas of moorland in Dartmoor National Park.

Autumn is particularly stunning. Clearly, it's great walking country. There's also a wealth of prehistoric and historic sites to experience.


High moorland

The Warren House Inn is situated on the side of the B3212. This is the main trans-moorland road that runs between Moretonhampstead and Yelverton. The pub is north of the road. Its pub garden is south of the road on the edge of the moorland.

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



There's plenty of parking along the road by the Warren House Inn.


Pub garden

The pub garden is actually a moorland garden. Located across the road from the pub, it can be a sublime spot for a drink.
