65) Dartington Hall, Gds and estate. Tower Road Totnes, TQ9 6EE

Route:
This route is 3.2 miles long and takes in the hall grounds, the river paths, the deer park and formal gardens.

The routes are well signposted , accessible long route and short route. There is also a helpful accessible route guide available from the information office.

Terrain:
Tarmac, well established path, grass, woodland path, gravel.
There are a few steep sections so help or a powered attachment or power chair will makes things much easier. There are several wide gates to pass, no stiles and the places with steps can be avoided.

Facilities on site:
Ample parking but all inc Blue Badge users have to pay. I believe it was £2.50 for 3 hours.
There is a fee for entering the formal gardens - though if your used to say National Trust estates you will be disappointed with the gardens- much are over grown and neglected. 

Toilets are available inc a disabled toilet in the historic hall. Service-able - functional but rather scuffy.

There is a lovely accessible cafe and pub on site, The White Hart and Green Cafe.

Dartington Hall is a 12th century house built in a courtyard design-linked with King Henry 8th.
The formal grounds.

Dogs are allowed in the grounds - but only service dogs are allowed in the cafe, pub, hall and formal garden.

Dartington Hall is a member of the Countryside Mobility Scheme - they have a Tramper available for members to use for a small fee (£2:50 per hour). Membership of the scheme is £10:00 per year but this allows you to use trampers at many locations -again for a small fee.
