Gill and George extend a warm welcome to
visitors seeking a quality, no smoking bed and breakfast accommodation
in peaceful rural surroundings: the ideal place for your stay
when visiting Great
Torrington and Rosemoor.
The woodland walk at RHS
Rosemoor is ideal for a leisurely stroll and the rest
of the beautifully laid out gardens are looking wonderful
now as winter approaches and the colours in the garden become
more subtle and some of the foliage changes to deep red and
orange. During the late Autumn and winter months Rosemoor
has so much to offer including on the 15th October the ever
popular Apple Day where you can bring your unknown varieties
along and find out exactly which type of apple you're eating!
On the 18th is Soil Management Day where you can come and
discover the secrets of seedbed preparation and the art of
traditional digging with ease. On the 20th - 22nd October
there is a very special event when Rosemoor hosts the world
premiere of the opere Tarka the Otter, to be held in a heated
marquee. As we move into November on the 2nd and 23rd there
will be a workshop enabling one to learn about the wonderfully
ancient craft of dyeing with plants. This is just a "taster"
of what is available at this wonderful garden in the South
Rosemoor demonstrates the many
contrasting forms, textures and colours that can be found
in garden plants, providing plenty of ideas and inspiration
to take away with you.
So something for everybody!!
The garden at "No Place"
If you are celebrating a birthday or an anniversary
or would just like to be spoiled, why not let us know. We
can serve you with a very special breakfast of smoked salmon,
scrambled free range eggs and something with a fizz!! Perhaps
a few flowers to colour the occasion. Or if you prefer, a
dinner to suit the moment.
If you have something in mind why not discuss it with us.
We can do most things, to suit most requirements.
'No Place' is thought to have been built in the 17th century
and is of traditional cob and stone construction. The origin
of the house name is equally lost in time but certainly appears
so named on the first Ordnance Survey map of 1887. It is suggested
the derivation of the name recognises the location of the
house close to the borders of several parishes and, perhaps,
in the distant past, was no place for local taxation. Unfortunately,
this is no longer the case.
The house is set in five acres so guests are welcome to wander
and take the Devon air. Additionally, our permanent tenant
'Tilly', the Dartmoor pony, will appreciate the odd apple
