A warm Devon welcome

Our area of Devon is known for its warm summers and its warm welcomes and the community at The Priory is the perfect embodiment of a warm welcome. Both residents and the team are famed for their inclusive and friendly receptions to new community members and their families and friends. We also have a guest suite available should you wish to have people to stay and are unable to accommodate them, or they’d prefer their own space.
