The Ice is melting...


And so are our hearts, OK very corny but we have had four weddings over the last week!


Welcome to the new look Dartington Hall Leisure Newsletter, firstly thank you to everyone who filled out the survey last time, there was a really good level of response and our competition winner is announced below. 

It is encouraging that the content and ideas we have for the newsletter are of interest to you, below are a few of the changes we are working on for you:

  • a new website with clearer navigation, more information on what to expect and what to do during your stay, our ethos and importantly as a Social Enterprise where your money goes.
  • a new newsletter for the White Hart Bar & Restaurant focusing on news, special offers, events and information on our dishes and produce.  To sign up click here....
  • a blog, I started this last September with great intentions to write an entry every month and then proceeded to write no more.  I have now re-set this ambition and will make sure I find time to put pen to paper (well fingers on a keyboard really). To read the first post from last September click here...

For more information on the wider Trust, the Dartington Trust Newsletter, written by a colleague Freya goes out each month and includes 6 sections covering the Trust's work in Social Justice, The Arts and Sustainability as well as updates from The Barn Cinema, The Shops at Dartington and the Gardens.


This newsletter is managed by a different system than the White Hart & Leisure newsletters, and you can create an account and sign up here...

Competition Winners


All those who filled out the questionnaire last time were entered into a draw to win a nights Bed & Breakfast for 2.

Congratulations to Stella Cross from Leeds who won the nights Bed & Breakfast, she is thinking of coming down by train and  extending her stay by a few nights to make the most of her time down here. Stella is looking forward to visiting some old friends and maybe even hiring a car to explore the area.

Congratulations are also in order for Paula Dumonde who won a meal for two in the White Hart.  Paula filled out a survey after a previous meal in the White Hart, all the feedback is collected by en external company, and fed back to us to help benchmark ourselves against other venues as well as identifying areas which need attention.

When you stay with us or visit the White Hart we would really appreciate it if you are able to spare a couple of minutes filling in the feedback survey as it shows us where we can improve our service.


We hope to see you soon Guy
