South Devon Country House
Dittisham - Fingals
Fingals has redefined the idea of
country house luxury in a new and exciting way. Located in a
delightful valley near the river dart, within easy reach of all the
charming towns on the south coast - Dartmouth,
Totnes, Salcombe - and of course Dartmoor itself, Fingals caters for
both the traveller who is looking for luxury with informality and
the family who want a truly child friendly environment. There are
both rooms in the house and some self-catering options, the latter
being ideally suited to parents who want to cater for their child in
a homely atmosphere while still enjoying the luxury of this special
place. If relaxing in the sumptuous rooms is not enough for you,
there are other distractions: a swimming pool, a tennis court
(grass, as you might expect), a lawn for croquet - and of course the
exquisite French cuisine! All of this makes Fingals an ideal place
for a weekend getaway, a romantic interlude, or an extended
vacation. Fingals' owners have managed to pull off an extraordinary
feat - combining the charm and standards of a small luxury boutique
hotel with an informality and level of service which you might only
expect to find in a much grander setting. the hotel is just outside
the village of Dittisham.

North Devon Country House
Barnstaple - Heddon's Gate Hotel
Hidden at the end of a quarter-mile
private drive, this country house hotel is superbly situated on the
slopes of the wooded Heddon Valley. It is secluded and tranquil,
with a magnificent outlook. Heddon's Gate has ten spacious and
distinctive en suite bedrooms, a bar, and comfortable lounges.
Sumptuous dinners and hearty breakfasts are served in the elegant
dining room. All food is freshly prepared on the premises, using
meat from local farms and fish from Devon and Cornwall, with all
other produce being sourced as locally as possible. The local area
is a walker's paradise, with some of the most spectacular coastal
walking in the country. Walking inland is also rewarding, taking in
Exmoor's renowned woodland, moorland and river valleys. There are
also many attractions easily accessible by car, including beauty
spots, gardens, historic villages and towns, individual shops and a
good variety of pannier markets. The world class beaches of the
North Devon Biosphere Reserve are less than an hour's drive away.
You can escape, relax and indulge at Heddon's Gate, and above all,
you will discover the outstanding beauty of Exmoor and North Devon.
No wonder the hotel has been included in the independent Good Hotel
Guide for the third year running!

Exmoor - The Old
property was built in the early 1800s but has been sympathetically
restored over the years, and now takes on the mantle of a beautiful
and elegant country house hotel. The Old Rectory nestles in a quiet hollow approached down a
typical Devon lane,
in the ancient hamlet of Martinhoe.
It's actually within the boundaries of the Exmoor National Park, and
the scenic grandeur of the North Devon coast is only a short
distance away. The hotel offers friendly yet attentive
service, which gives the whole operation a truly homely feel.
