Since taking control of Kitley in 1999 we have striven to achieve an environmental balance. On the one hand this is a busy country house hotel and on the other it is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Indeed Kitley has just been awarded a designation as a Devon County Wildlife Site in recognition of its unique status and habitat. This habitat is of great interest to our guests. Indeed a recent visitor from the United States, a member of the Advisory Board of the Los Angeles Arboretum, correctly identified a number of hitherto unknown Common Limes (Tilia or Linden Trees). The question is - what else is out there?
On these pages we will start to show how our balance has been achieved and what we are doing to further enhance not only our reputation but our environmental heritage.
I do hope that this information is of interest to you. The years seem to pass so fast it is sometimes difficult to reflect on what we have achieved with Kitley House however the continued investment in The House, Grounds and Environment is particularly noticeable to regular visitors and we are not resting on our laurels (bad pun there!) The forward programme looks every bit as entertaining as that which we have carried out over the past 10 years!
Work in progress...Kitley House as it was!
