About this offering

This bond issue is part of a wider five to seven year financial plan underpinning a strategy which includes ethical bank finance and increased fundraising activity. Investment will be staged, focused in the first instance on existing assets within the estate. This includes refurbishing and relaunching the Dartington Hall hotel, the Barn Cinema & Café and the White Hart restaurant as well as rejuvenating the existing retail space and redeveloping the Foxhole site (formerly Dartington Hall School) as a new base for learning and social justice projects.
