I have a folder for guests to confirm their name and address on arrival. Guests are advised prior to arrival and reminded to strip the beds themselves and place the bedlinen in a laundry bag on departure. I have tried to keep one day free between bookings in order to reduce the risks of cross contamination. Pre arrival I am notifying guests which local pubs and venues are open and suggesting that prior booking is essential.
Our Inspector's View
Swallows at Falkendon is part of a Georgian former farmhouse in a peaceful countryside location just a mile from the village of Spreyton and the famous Tom Cobley Tavern. Dartmoor is just a short drive away, and attractions such as Finch Foundry and Castle Drogo are also nearby. The garden is popular with swallows and woodpeckers.

About The area
With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.
Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them.
Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
