Exeter restaurateur buys Devon tea rooms with rooms

Exeter restaurateur Charlotte Hammick has bought the Old Inn tea rooms with letting rooms in the thatched Devon village of Drewsteignton.

The business, which includes five en-suite letting bedrooms, is located within the Dartmoor National Park, with the Two Moors Way passing the front door.

Hammick is converting the 28-seat tea room into a 20-seat restaurant with a small bar that will reopen in March following work to reveal the property's original 17th century floors, walls and fireplaces.

She plans to serve organic, locally-sourced food and to hold international themed evenings.

Stonesmith of Exeter sold the free-of-tie lease off an asking price of £80,000 on behalf of Michelle and Tony Jones.
