Conference venue Dartington Hall relaunches as hotel

Leading weddings and conference venue Dartington Hall in Totnes, Devon, has been relaunched as a 50-bedroom hotel, following a major upgrade to its accommodation.

Situated within a 14th-century Grade I-listed building, the property is operated by the Dartington Hall Trust, a not-for-profit social enterprise. It includes the White Hart pub-restaurant, the Roundhouse café, Barn cinema, arts centre and a range of shops.

Dartington Hall general manager Deborah Heather said : "Dartington Hall is a magical place to stay, the surrounding are fantastic and there's masses to do whatever your interests. And at the same time guests are contributing to some very worthy causes."

The Dartington Hall estate was bought in the 1920s by Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst as the base for an experiment in rural regeneration and today continues to run a year-long arts programme, as well as a social justice programme providing education and research to people working with vulnerable children, young people and families.
