Walk across the lawn and you step into the warm, welcoming bar with a clock saying "oneish, twoish ....", Classic FM is playing gently in the background and you start to relax. The world of deadlines and endless rushing seem light years away.
You have arrived at Fingals and can sink into huge, squashy sofas in the sitting-room in front of the large inglenook fireplace, or wander through into the library, overflowing with books. Oak beams, wood panelling, antique carpets, log fires - the new and the old blend together to create a feeling of warmth and well-being. "Fingals is for friends, it is a place for meeting kindred spirits and enjoying life - we've aimed for a relaxed, informal atmosphere and encourage guests to think of Fingals as their country home."
Delicious dinners are served in the original wood panelled dining-room at a long table where guests can meet interesting people, mingle into the early hours, and put the world to rights (there is a smaller dining-room for more intimate and 'en famille' dinners). Tea and freshly baked cakes can be taken in the garden or in the Orangery. We are provided with organic fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, wine and ice creams by South Devon's lush fertile fields, the river Dart, and sea close by. Our meals are wholesome, unfussy and full of flavour. You are invited to view a sample menu.
Breakfast is a relaxed affair with fresh squeezed orange juice, freshly baked croissants, organic muesli and a traditional English breakfast served from 9am onwards in the dining-rooms and sometimes on the terrace if the sun is shining outside >>
