Our Links Page

If you want to read a bit more about some good local pubs, where we get our eggs, or The Spinney’s awards, you’re in the right place. We’ve compiled a list of links to pages you might find interesting when planning your holiday. There’s so much more to North Devon and The Spinney than we can mention here, of course! So, if you’d like to know a bit more about anything and don’t want to read, come downstairs for a chat when you come to visit.

The AA

The Spinney was awarded a four star hospitality award this year! As you can probably imagine, we’re really rather pleased with this, so if you’d like a bit more information about the AA, its hospitality awards, and what they mean, you can find more information here.
