About Furzeleigh Mill
Welcome to Furzeleigh Mill our 16th Century former Mill in glorious Devon. Furzeleigh Mill 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 our very own store, Furzeleigh Living, which is stocked with ethically produced items curated by handcraftsman, Geoff Sellick.
We have also built a lovely terrace, updated the bar and restaurant, and renovated all 10 of our bedrooms. We are so proud of what we have to offer here at Furzeleigh Mill. Situated on 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. The hotel is personally run by a family team including Tessa, Geoff, and at a minimum two of our many children!
We are committed to eliminating all the single use plastics associated with hospitality and all harsh chemicals that viable environmentally friendly products can replace. We have replaced all room cleaning materials with eco friendly products. Some of these products require extra manpower over their chemical counterparts but we are happy to invest in a greener future.
At this time, we offer complimentary toiletries, a 30ml bottle of shampoo, a 30ml bottle of body wash and 20mg soap per person. We will continue to do so if you so request. However, after having some of our drains rodded and discovering numerous plastic bottles that were blocking them, plus our commitment to eradicating single use plastic we have added an additional option.
After the team and I tested these products we are really to happy to offer you Spire Cleansing Bars. Their Credentials are high- 0% Plastic, Compostable Packing, No Preservatives, No Parabens or Sulphates, Vegan, Cruelty Free, Child Friendly and without any Mineral Oils.
This one small bar is a Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash. One bar is said to last one person at least 3 nights.
We absolutely do not wish to force our views upon anyone; we only ask that you try this during your stay with us, helping our business grow in an environmentally friendly direction, and at best maybe consider being less dependent on plastic shampoo bottles in your own homes.
Please let us know if you require any other products during your stay as we are more than happy to assist you. Lastly, thank you ever so much for taking the time to read this. We appreciate your custom and hope to see you return.
Should you wish to leave any feedback regarding this or anything else in our hotel - please let me know.
Tessa and the team
