Foxhole accommodation

Foxhole is the former home of Dartington’s experimental free school. The listed Neo-Georgian property is based around a picturesque central courtyard. The buildings which surround the courtyard are split into ‘houses’; these houses are Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, White and Black.

All of the houses are used as accommodation, with the exception of Black. Featuring a distinctive clock tower, Black House marks the front of Foxhole and is where you guests check-in. Largely unaltered since their original use, the rooms at Foxhole are basic but functional, ideal for the limited amount of time you will be spending here. All bedding and a towel provided.


Shared bathroom facilities on each floor (~10 rooms) | Sink in room | Tea and coffee making facilities in shared kitchenettes | Dedicated car park | Minibus runs to main campus for breakfast and back to Foxhole after evening concerts
