our rewilding site

When staying at Three Hares Carriage please feel free to explore our sixteen acres of rewilded land and keep your eyes peeled to see what nature you can spot. A perfect place for a stroll in all seasons.

We have dormice, visiting polecats and otters. If you visit us in the late spring you may spot the glowing natural wonders of our glow worms. We would be happy to show you around our land and explain how the land is changing and how we are making space for nature and allowing it to thrive. 

We are proud to have worked with the wonderful charity 'Moor Trees' to plant 4500 native trees. You can also dedicate a tree whilst staying with us to mark your holiday or a particular special occasion.

At Three Hares Carriage we are committed to working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 8.9) which states we should: “...devise and implement policies to promote sustainable tourism that creates jobs and promotes local culture and products”. As such we use and encourage our guests to visit local producers including Ide Community Shop and purchase milk from Mount Boon Farm. As well as considering our amazing local community and using local transport where at all possible. Many of our guests bring their bicycles and make use of the dedicated secure bicycle storage facilities and others enjoy the highlights of Exeter City Centre by hopping on the bus, which stops at the end of the drive and travels directly into the city centre, and is on the main route to Dartmoor.

Hill Crest is on the 'Country Bus 359' and First 'Dartmoor Explorer' routes and we have a pedestrian gate for making commuting via public transport easier.

The electricity that the carriage uses is from 100% renewable energy, and all of the appliances have been chosen for their energy efficiency.

We use Ecover laundry and cleaning products.

Our booking agent Travel Chapter makes a donation to the RSPB for every booking and a proportion of your booking payment goes towards our work at Devon Wildland and growing native trees in our Tree Hub.
