About Devon

One of the UK’s best-loved destinations, Devon has become increasingly chic in recent years, featuring fun seaside hotels and trendy city boltholes to delight the whole family. Devon’s popularity is reflected in the broad range of accommodation on offer, with everything from smart country houses to laid-back B&Bs, suitable for a whole host of budgets. Whilst many of the best places to stay in Devon are right by the seaside, some of our favourite hideaways are tucked in pretty villages or situated on the edge of Exmoor or Dartmoor – ideal for outdoor explorers and wildlife lovers.

Some of our Devon collections:

Book a room in Plymouth, site of Sir Francis Drake’s famous game of bowls, for a sense of history — maritime and more — or base yourself in the university town of Exeter, parts of which date back to the Roman era. Stroll along cobbled streets, pop into lovely independent shops, and cosy up in the city’s many bars and pubs. If you’re eager to explore Exeter but would prefer to spend your evenings away from the student nightlife, nearby Crediton offers a charming alternative.

South Devon has become something of a hippy enclave, home to a host of great music festivals and alternative lifestyle centres. Dartmouth and the surrounding area are quite simply stunning. Lively Salcombe is particularly popular with young families, while Torquay tends to attract a more grown-up set. Alternatively, skip the crowds and base yourself in the pretty market town of Axminster, within easy reach of the south coast.

Try North Devon, on the other hand, to visit superb stately homes set in glorious grounds or to sample all manner of extreme sports out on the water. Surfers will adore riding the waves, whilst families will find plenty to discover in the pretty Victorian harbour town of Ilfracombe, with its sandy beach and artworks by Damien Hirst. Exmoor, too, is nearby, home — like Dartmoor — to herds of wild ponies and plenty of other wildlife.

The Devon countryside is as impressive as its coastline, with whitewashed thatched cottages and traditional stone longhouses nestled amidst a patchwork of fields. Boasting five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO Geopark and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Devon makes for a marvellous outdoorsy holiday destination. Whether you’re into walking, hiking, cycling, birdwatching or simply picnicking with the whole family, there are superb coastal and countryside spots to explore and admire.

Whether you prefer to base yourself within sight of the sea or to hide away in rural bliss, the best places to stay in Devon promise relaxation and a friendly welcome, perfect for great British escape.

The best places to stay in Devon

For a rural retreat

  • The Arundell Arms is a traditional, family-run hotel with comfortable rooms, great food and a warm welcome. Come here for a pretty location, fishing on the Tamar or shooting in season.
  • Kaywana Hall isn't your usual rural hideaway. It's a swish, Californian-style boutique B&B with a pool in an attractive setting close to the River Dart. Think slick modern design, private terraces and lots of light. Pick this place for privacy and unusual decor.
  • Dartington Hall boasts stylish rooms in a collection of medieval buildings, with an onsite pub and a programme of regular talks and evenings organised by The Dartington Hall Trust. Set in mature gardens, this is a great choice for outdoorsy visitors looking to explore the Devon countryside whilst staying in a historic property.

  • Bovey Castle is a beautiful country hotel with fantastic facilities and a focus on keeping the whole family entertained. Whilst adults might head for the spa or the golf course, little ones can crack on with everything from egg collecting to raft building and take advantage of the world’s only Lego Room Service.
  • Weeke Barton is a Grade II-listed property with five gorgeous en-suite rooms, fresh food sourced from around Dartmoor and a fun honesty bar. Kids will adore the pond, shipwrecked boat and play den in the 5-acre gardens, as well as the two friendly spaniels. Request additional beds for little ones, or book the whole house if travelling as a big group. A great vibe, with thoughtful touches aplenty.

For great value

  • The Rose & Crown is a pretty Devonshire village inn with eight spacious rooms featuring crisp white sheets and blush tones. Savour fantastic pub fare and cosy up by the roaring fire after a big day of exploring. Laid-back, charming and great value.
