Much More than an Accountant

We are a Chartered Accountancy practice based in the South West. Over our 70 year history we’ve built an in-depth knowledge of many sectors including agriculture, construction, education, healthcare, professional services and tourism.

We offer the very best accountancy expertise, priding ourselves on delivering exceptional levels of personal care and attention and offering business services that you may not believe we are able to do.  We’ve helped many of our customers turn their ideas into profitable and thriving businesses. We’ve walked with them as they’ve grown, acquired other businesses, and assisted them when they were ready to pass their businesses on to the next generation or arrange a trade sale.

We also support established businesses with everything from payroll and tax advice to business planning and audit.
For many clients, business and family finances are often closely linked. Through Darnells Wealth Management Ltd, we have qualified and knowledgeable experts to help you with investments, retirement planning and income protection.

At every step we are with you, helping you plan for the future and stay in control of the present.
If you’d like to know more about how we can help you, please call 01626 358500 or email to arrange a free initial consultation.


Wollen Michelmore has been serving the Devon legal community for the past 150 years and during the last decade we’ve grown significantly. As one of the leading law firms in Devon with offices in Newton Abbot, Torquay, Dartmouth, Barnstaple and Bideford, we have a love for Devon and all of its beauty, as well as a passion for the work we do.

Highly regarded in the region for our private client work, we also have a successful property team dealing with residential and commercial property transactions. In addition we have a large family department dealing with high value financial settlements, a dispute resolution department including clinical negligence and personal injury and a highly skilled corporate and commercial team.

The service we offer has been recognised externally and in 2016 we received three awards at the Devon and Somerset Law Society Awards and we were shortlisted in three categories at the prestigious national Law Society Excellence Awards; Excellence in Client Service, Excellence in Private Client Practice and in Excellence in Marketing & Communications where we were Highly Commended.
