Join us at one of the most beautiful times of year in Devon. The leaves are changing colour, the trees are laden with apples, and the nights are drawing in.

It is lovely to receive photos from our guests, here is one of our favourites from Phil and Diana. A view of the Tabernacle and Brownscombe hill from the National trust walk opposite. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but within 10 miles you can be walking on Dartmoor or eating ice […]
