The Oxenham Arms is a 4 Star Gold rated English Heritage Grade II Star listed hotel. It is unique in the world, constructed around a massive prehistoric monolith 5000 years ago called the South Zeal Menhir. In 1190 a Benedictine Monastery was built around the stone and that monastery forms the hotel today. A French family called The Burgoynes added the manor house to the front of the monastery in 1350. In the late 1400's two earls, The Earls of Oxenham bought the estate and this then became The Oxenham Manor. The Oxenham's gained a licence in the year 1477 for the building to become an Inn. During the 1500's the grandson of the Oxenhams, John Oxenham was born here. John Oxenham is remembered today on Plymouth Ho with a memorial as he went on to become a famous sea Captain and 1st Navigator for the English Fleet with Sir Francis Drake. Many famous people have stayed in our guest rooms over the years, the most famous being Charles Dickens who wrote some of The Pickwick Papers here in the year 1836. Today we have 7 hotel rooms, lovely restaurant and bar food, five acres of ground and beautiful gardens with fine views of Dartmoor. We are in the middle of a medieval village.
