The Acland room, overlooking the reservoir, very light, airy and spacious

The Acland Room

Opened in September 2012 by HRH Princess Alexandra, The Acland Room and its large veranda offer our visitors a quiet space with fantastic views to the south west across Wistlandpound Reservoir, down the valley of the river Yeo and into the moors beyond. At night it also provides a fantastic opportunity to admire the stunning night skies that are such a feature of North Devon’s Dark Sky Reserve.


The Acland Room is also available for hire by non-residents, and is becoming very popular with local businesses and groups for training sessions, meetings and presentations. 


Room hire is available from just £20 per hour, including free Wi-Fi access, surround sound system and  a large AV screen with HDMI input for presentations, DVD's etc.

, and we can also provide;

  •  Continental Breakfast for £5 per person
  • Buffets from £8.50 per person

"I was overwhelmed by enthusiasm, helpfulness and support that your team gave both Laura and myself. Our instructor showed such empathy and kindness towards Laura and the way she was able to interact with her was wonderful to see. The new Acland room is a wonderful addition and all of the participants thoroughly enjoyed their time there."
