“This 18th century country house hotel offers the simple pleasures of good food, lovely views and peace and quiet. Tranquil walks can be enjoyed in the the walled ‘secret garden’, apple orchards and Japanese water garden. Great for a relaxing weekend break. ”

Hotel Review

Its strengths are friendly and welcoming staff, marvellous views of the North Devon country and a good chef. Furnishings and decoration are slightly old-fashioned and the furniture is reproduction rather than antique. The classic formula for an English country house hotel - the conversion of a rambling Victorian mansion - means that rooms will vary in size and outlook. Ask about both when you book. This is a quiet place for quiet people, and Northcote Manor caters for it well, winning high praise. A place for cream teas and roaring fires. If you want Country and Western in the west country, this is not the place for you.
