Come to Modbury

What makes people return, year after year, to a much loved place?

Is it simply that it is familiar, or are there deeper reasons?

Maybe it’s because they have discovered a sense of permanence, somewhere that doesn’t change too much from year to year; where conversations may be picked up again and friendships renewed.

In a very fast changing, and fast paced world, this sense of permanence is reassuring.

 People come, sometimes several times a year, to unwind, to reconnect with the seasons, good food, slow living, favourite haunts. They come to be restored and refreshed, and we hope that we can continue to offer the space to do so.

The bedrooms at Annapurna are simply but comfortably furnished. Come for B&B, and relish fresh free range eggs from our hens, home made bread, local free range bacon: or be self sufficient in the annexe, with one double and one single bedroom, sitting room/kitchen, and bathroom. The annexe also has a small private outside place to sit and enjoy coffee and croissants.
Sit in the garden, drink in the birdsong and read all those waiting books you’ve brought with you: or wander through the beautiful south Devon countryside, with its moorland, beaches, rivers, gardens and a host of lovely National Trust houses to visit.

Apart from being one of the loveliest places to stay, you will discover Modbury’s great sense of community, with the week long May Fair being one of the year’s highlights. For me, though, it is the magical ‘Christmas lights’ ceremony early in December which is favourite, and which declares Christmas ‘open’ in the town. For half an hour, the twenty first century has to wait, the road is closed to traffic, the Town Crier does his stuff and the whole town turns out to count down to the switch on. There are carols and music, all the shops are lit up and open for mulled wine, mince pies –and shopping!
And when you’ve enjoyed your day, come home, contemplate an inky sky (no street lights around here) before you fall into bed......
