About Us

Welcome to Furzeleigh Mill

Welcome to Furzeleigh Mill our 16th Century former Mill in glorious Devon. Furzeleigh has been a small country hotel for about 100 years having started life as a Spring fed Corn Mill in 1547. Owned and operated by the same family for over 30 years it came onto the market in 2018 and we were lucky enough to buy the hotel at the end of the year. We have been busy updating our beautiful building, we have built a lovely new terrace, updated the bar area and the restaurant and although there is a long way to go but we are so proud of what we have to offer here at Furzeleigh Mill.

Situated in its own grounds with a sunny south facing aspect on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park bordering the South Hams Furzeleigh Mill offers an informal, homely atmosphere combined with great food and great service. Located near the Devon Expressway the hotel is perfectly located for holidays or business, Moor or coast. It sits between the ancient Stannary town of Ashburton with its foodie reputation and wonderful antique shops and the former woollen town of Buckfastleigh boasting quaint streets and many artisan shops. The world famous Buckfast Abbey is also within walking distance. The Medieval town of Totnes is nearby with Dartmouth and the best beaches in the South West within a 30 minute drive. We are equidistant between Devon’s cities Plymouth and Exeter.

The hotel is personally run by us, a family team including Tessa, Geoff and at a minimum two of our many children!

We look forward to welcoming you to Furzeleigh Mill in the near future.
