Christopher is ready to see what Dartington Hall has to offer.
Dartington Hall in Dartington, near Totnes, Devon, England, is a 1,200 acre country estate that is the headquarters of the Dartington Hall Trust, a charity specialising in the arts, social justice and sustainability.
The medieval hall was built between 1388 and 1400 for John Holand, Earl of Huntingdon, half-brother to Richard II. After John was beheaded, the Crown owned the estate until it was acquired in 1559 by Sir Arthur Champernowne, Vice-Admiral of the West under Elizabeth I. The Champernowne family then lived in the Hall for 366 years.
The Hall and medieval courtyard functions in part as a conference centre and wedding venue and provides bed and breakfast accommodation.
