Background

Built in 1700 by local craftsmen, Appalachian Spring was formerly known as Copland’s Corner. It was a working farmhouse for over 200 years. Fully converted for residential use in the 1950’s, it has now been upgraded and transformed into a well-appointed luxury Bed & Breakfast.

With just 2 double rooms plus a large Annexe Suite and therefore never more than 3 groups of guests at any one time, our emphasis is on providing a small – but perfectly formed – Bed & Breakfast experience.

Ethos

Our ethos is simple; to provide an intimate, luxurious Devonian experience – a true home away from home.

Wherever possible, the breakfast is locally sourced and almost everything is environmentally friendly and hypo-allergenic. The water is solar heated in the summer and some of the electricity used is created by photovoltaic (PV) panels. 

Whatever assistance you require, from planning activities to booking restaurants, nothing is too much trouble.

Local Area

There are many tourist attractions nearby. Five minutes walk from the house is The Cott Inn (est. 1320) which is the longest thatched pub in England, and is a family friendly pub with garden.
 

The historic market town of Totnes, with its Elizabethan Tuesday market is a mile away, as is Darlington Hall, which hosts many events and festivals, including “Ways with Words" and The Dartington International Summer School. The estate is also home to the world renowned Schumacher College, with its programme of sustainability courses.

Totnes, on the river Dart, is known for its history and was reputedly the landing point of Brutus of Troy. It has long been known as a centre for free thinking and inventiveness, as seen in the recent BBC documentary with Nicholas Crane. The town is overlooked by a Norman castle, and has a 13th century Guildhall, and many Elizabethan Merchant’s houses, one of which now contains a museum featuring Charles Babbage.

One of the best ways to explore the area is by a round-robin trip, combining a river trip to Dartmouth and a ride on the Kingswear to Paignton steam railway. Other local attractions include Buckfast Butterfly and Otter Sanctuary, the Buckfastleigh Steam Railway and the Rare Breeds FarmSharpham Vineyard is nearby, with wine and cheese tastings, café and shop.

Appalachian Spring is ideally suited as a base for excursions to Dartmoor National Park and the many other attractions in Devon and Cornwall.
