BUSINESS

The business is operated by a husband and wife team without the need for staff. It has earned itself a fine reputation with Trip Advisor and Booking.com together with repeat custom. Because of its unique location within the spectacular Dartmoor National park, it draws upon an all year-round tourist trade.
