It also houses a REN spa and a charming bar and bistro. They wanted to build a library as a main feature of their hotel and commissioned us to source the books for them.

In this library we felt it was important to be able to contribute to the sense of place, so we sourced books about Devon and from West country writers to go on the shelves. We then mixed in titles of both fact and fiction to entertain the guests, with topics ranging from natural history and travel to health and architecture. We added a section with a wellness theme to complement the hotel’s spa and also provided a large selection of illustrated books to be on display in the library. For a final personalised touch we supplied the hotel with a standard room book to be given to each guest on their arrival.
