This former hotel for sale was originally a Victorian grammar school - and sits on the edge of Dartmoor. 

The Edgemoor, in Bovey Tracey, was built in the 1870s and was used as a grammar school for Victorian children. 

The property was purchased by the current owner in 2008 and was refurbished, creating a hotel and wedding venue.

The Edgemoor Hotel ceased trading in 2021 due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

With a stone and ivy-clad facade, there are period features throughout the property, such as original fireplaces and exposed beams. 

The dining room was once the library for the grammar school, while the old school rooms provide reception spaces.

There are 17 bedrooms throughout the hotel, having formerly been dormitories or further classrooms, as well as a 40-cover restaurant.

As well as the main hotel, the property includes a two-bedroom headmaster’s cottage, another cottage with four bedrooms, a detached pottery and a barn.

To the rear of the hotel is a bungalow, which has full residential use, with other areas having traded as holiday lets. 

Outside, the hotel’s grounds span approximately 2.5 acres, which are landscaped and sit on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.

The property is being sold by Charles Darrow for a guide price of £1,950,000. 

Jon Clyne, director at Charles Darrow, commented: “We are thrilled to be marketing the Edgemoor, a truly unique property which has been utilised for many different purposes over the years, our hope is that the property interests budding entrepreneurs however, the Edgemoor could suit other commercial uses or, may suit a change of use to single or multiple residential properties (subject to the necessary consents) albeit, the priority should be on reinvigorating and preserving a truly wonderful property.”
