Charlie and Julia run the award winning Larkbeare Grange in Talaton.  Combined they bring a wealth of experience in one of Devon’s most important sectors – Tourism.  Charlie has considerable experience having worked for the Savoy Group, The Halkin and St James’s Club in London. Julia spent many years working in Hong Kong and America and has brought a wealth of ideas from her travels. They also share a passion for the environment and running a business as sustainably as possible without undermining the quality of their offering.

Their core values are an appreciation and respect for the natural world, a continual effort to minimise their carbon footprint through investment into renewable energies, sharing knowledge and experiences with others and finally, ensuring that their local community is served by actively engaging with other local businesses and individuals as well as buying locally.

Charlie and Julia will be sharing the Director role both bringing their unique insights and experience to DEBI.
