The Globe Hotel, Great Torrington
The Globe Hotel is a key regional regeneration project in Great Torrington which has been developed in partnership with Great Torrington Town Council, Petroc and The Plough Arts Centre.
How can we create regeneration in a beautiful market town, create community pride and shape better futures for young people across northern Devon?
After what is expected to be a £3million renovation process, lasting around 2 years, The Globe will operate as a high quality hotel driven by a mission to provide top-level hospitality training to a range of apprentice opportunities every year, the project has been developed as a partnership between Torridge District Council, Great Torrington Town Council, Petroc and The Plough Arts Centre. It will work in partnership with local, regional and national hospitality partners. So it will provide fantastic service, beautiful rooms in a town flanked by RHS Rosemoor and Dartington Crystal, support acts and audience members for The Plough Arts Centre and generate more footfall for the town centre as a whole. The 60-cover restaurant will focus on fresh, local produce delivered creatively, in a town with no current dine-in offer, while the co-working space will
But all of this will come with that core twist - that by delivering on the highest standards the hotel will also be supporting brighter futures for the young people of the town, wider northern Devon region and as a result also supporting hospitality businesses across the area.
The community share issue designed to provide community ownership and engagement with the project, as well as to create a truly distinctive model for community wealth building, is scheduled to go live in early 2022.
