Good Hotel Guide Review
Rinus and Aniet van de Sande have created a much-praised meeting point for art, culture and hospitality at their ‘quirky’ late-Victorian hotel in a wooded Devon valley. It is surrounded by one of the largest permanent collections of contemporary sculpture in southwest England. Inside, ‘interesting paintings’ occupy every wall; an art gallery (open to the public) demands exploration. Spacious modern bedrooms have views over the sculptures in the grounds. At lunch and dinner, sample Mediterranean ‘slow food’ and tapas in the award-winning Terra Madre restaurant. 4 miles N of Barnstaple.
