Join us for a festive New Year bridge break in gorgeous South Devon. With its cobbled streets, artisan shops and cafes, and tasty bistros and tapas bars, Dartmouth is a truly fantastic place to explore – and explore you shall! Just four miles from this historic naval town is our base, The Dartmouth Hotel, Golf & Spa, a First for Bridge firm favourite. Nestled in 225 acres of glorious countryside, it offers a tranquil setting and perfect location, as well as featuring the spacious Dartmouth Suite for playing bridge. Ring in the New Year with fizz and canapes alongside your newfound friends!
James has been playing bridge for over 30 years and is regularly picked for his county. He also enjoys playing in congresses around the country (when his less competitive wife Jane lets him!)
James has run his own furnishing business for over 30 years from his base in Norfolk and recently, with his good friend and fellow First for Bridge host, John Barker, has established the Norfolk Bridge Academy. Between them, they have over 100 pupils learning to play and enjoying the wonderful game of bridge.
Jane has worked as a manager for over 12 years at her local university and then the NHS. She brings her organisational and interpersonal skills to the forefront to make an excellent hosting team with her husband James.
Jane and James have travelled extensively in recent years to explore exotic parts of the world, such as Peru, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. They both enjoy meeting new people, with the emphasis on fun and laughter, which may possibly include a drink or two.
