Our COVID-19 measures:
At each change of occupancy, guest bedrooms are left unoccupied for a minimum of 24hrs and then thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before the next arrival. In addition to the usual high temperature washing and steam-pressing of bed linen, we rotate all bedding, pillows, protectors and duvets so that they are out of use for a minimum of 72hrs to ensure that Coronavirus cannot survive on bedding. We rotate other room collateral like cushions & ornaments the same way. We do not enter the bedroom during a guest's stay, but provide some cleaning materials & gloves in case they are needed.

About The area

Discover Devon

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.
