The difference between a Devon cream tea and a Cornish cream tea? It's all about the order in which you lavish your scones with jam and cream. If you're a jam then cream type, you're a Cornish cream tea-er. Cream then jam? Welcome to Devonshire. And there's more where that came from; learn the ins and outs of South West cuisine courtesy of this Escape: a gourmet stay at Browns Hotel on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.

Two people can stay at the elegant four-star establishment for one night in a standard double room for £139 (up to a £257 value), or an extended two-night stay for £215 (up to a £392 value). Accommodation is up there with the crème de la crème: rooms are individually decorated and feature en suite with Molton Brown amenities, LCD TV with satellite, DVD player and library, digital radio, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and Wi-Fi access. The hotel holds an Enjoy England four-star gold award.

The culinary delights include a full English breakfast (described by The Daily Telegraph as 'superb') one morning, continental breakfast the other, six-course tasting menu on the first night, and Devonshire cream tea* on one day. When it comes to the menu, you'll fish through tempting contemporary British dishes at the chic two AA Rosette-awarded Library Restaurant and Wine Bar. The restaurant was the winner of the Best Foodie Hotel in the South West at Food Reader Awards 2012.

There's no need to split too early thanks to late midday checkout; in fact, you can use the extra time to really lay the fun on thick with a visit to The Wharf Arts and Entertainment Centre, The Tamar Valley Donkey Park, Morwellham Quay Museum, and Pannier Market in Tavistock itself, or the National Marine Aquarium, Pecorama, Canonteign Falls, Powderham Castle, Arlington Court, Bicton Park Botanical Gardens, Watermouth Castle, Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre, and of course the many beaches elsewhere in Devon.
