A part of the Dartington Hall Trust, this glorious South Devonshire retreat, near the ancient market town of Totnes - once named "capital of new age chic" by Time magazine - is set in a 1,200-acre estate of rolling farmland and a deer park with Bronze Age walls; Dartmoor National Park, Buckfast Abbey and the South Devon Railway are all at its doorstep.
Beautifully decorated bedrooms are arranged around the magnificent medieval courtyard and effortlessly fuse heritage with comfort. Dine in the White Hart Bar, with its roughcast walls and crackling log fire, where fresh local produce is used to prepare mouth-watering meals; grab a coffee at the Roundhouse Café; go to the pictures at the 14th Century Barn Cinema, offering an eclectic programme of films; or take a stroll along the river Dart, through 22 acres of Grade II* listed gardens, with spectacular woodland walks, awash with cherry blossom and snakes head fritillaries in spring. A heady array of on-site shops offer the latest in craft and glassware; fashion and beauty; food and drink; and much more besides; the Haven Spa pampers with divine Elemis and Spa Find treatments.
A melting pot of artists, thinkers and activists, the Dartington estate hosts over 1,000 events each year, including exhibitions, arts festivals, food fairs, concerts and film; plus talks and debates focussed on wellbeing, happiness and society. Indeed, you might just find yourself coming away not only rested, but, like so many before you, inspired. Dartington Hall is committed to supporting the arts and positively contributing to society and our planet; it is a Condé Nast Johansens Award Winner for Excellence in Sustainable Hospitality & Corporate Social Responsibility and a proud recipient of the Green Business Tourism Scheme silver award.
All 50 bedrooms at Dartington Hall are beautifully decorated and lovingly furnished. The majority of bedrooms benefit from en suite bathrooms, however, a small number of standard double rooms feature a private bathroom across the corridor. Please note that room service is not available at this hotel. All rooms are non-smoking.
