Gym Facilities

The gym at Downe is available to guests aged over sixteen and is open from 7.00am to 9.00pm each day. The gym is spacious, light and airy and equipped with aerobic equipment, free weights, an ab trainer, an exercise bench and exercise mats.


The gym is beautifully located in the Atlantic Room and has views across fields out to Hartland Point and Lundy Island. (Lundy Island is where the Atlantic meets the Bristol Channel.)

All of the aerobic equipment is either Life Fitness equipment (including a treadmill, a cross trainer, a stepper, an upright cycle and a recumbent cycle) or Concept 11 equipment (a rower).

The gym is accessed through the Reading Room in the Conservatory. There is a raised area here overlooking the gym equipment with a seating for the less energetic to sit and admire their dynamic partners!

The Atlantic Room also houses a library for our guests to use.

French windows from the gym lead out to a raised patio area with tables and chairs looking out to Lundy Island – another opportunity to enjoy the wonderful surroundings.
