Situated in the delightful conservation village of Ashprington three miles South of the market town of Totnes The Durant Arms, established in 1725, is a country inn and a family run free-house with three en-suite guest bedrooms Since December 2013 The Durant Arms has been owned and run by The Woollacott family & is a proper village pub.

Accessibility

The Durant Arms is an old building that dates back to 1725; unfortunately there are some steps inside the building that could present a challenge to people with mobility problems. This includes a step in the main bar bar area, where a grab rail has been provided. The guest bedrooms are accessed by a flight of stairs with a handrail provided, and there is no ground floor accommodation.
