South Devon Hotels For A Romantic Break

Kingsbridge - Buckland Tout-Saints Hotel

The South Hams is a stunning area of Devon, well worth exploring, and if you're looking for a luxurious base from which to do so, then this elegant and extremely comfortable hotel may be the idea place to stay. Situated in over four acres of beautiful woodland and garden, the hotel is an elegant "William & Mary" house, which has been awarded 3 red stars and two AA Rosettes (always a guarantee of fine cooking!). Although the hotel is in a wonderfully secluded and peaceful location,  it's not far to the delightful little town of Salcombe.
Luxury is the keyword here: from the luxurious, refurbished bedrooms, to the elegant lunge bar and pine-panelled restaurant, everything speaks of the highest attention to detail. The sixteen bedrooms have all been designed individually, and the level of furnishing encourages you to relax and unwind, taking in the grandeur of the rooms in what has to be one of the finest hotels in the area. Standards of service are also as high as you would expect in this luxury hotel: and dining is central to the experience of staying here, since head chef Callum Kier has held two AA Rosettes for many years. The hotel's main restaurant is one of the finest in the area, and if you wish to arrange a private function, there are smaller venues which are both intimate and elegant. The hotel is expert in hosting  weddings, functions and private parties.

Salcombe - Tides Reach Hotel

Ownership by one family (in this case the Edwards) for a long period of time has definite advantages in the hotel trade: you learn exactly what your guests want, and you can provide the service and facilities that exactly suit your clients. In this case, relaxation and luxury are the key words. People coming to this area will probably be drawn here by the amazing beauty of the area, or perhaps their desire to relax and unwind. This hotel provides an ideal place in which you can forget all about the cares of life, and enjoy elegance, comfort and luxury in the most enjoyable of surroundings. The thirty five bedrooms are furnished with individual flair and elegance, and few share the same colour scheme. Almost all rooms have a view of the estuary, and several have private balconies. If you want an extra level of luxury, the premier rooms are especially spacious and well-appointed. The hotel restaurant uses fresh food from the area and fish from the sea nearby, presenting gourmet meals which are expertly prepared and served with the highest attention to standards of service.

Dartmouth - The Dart Marina Hotel

The Dart Marina is a modern hotel in the townhouse idiom, with contemporary design and soft colour schemes in the bedrooms, all of which have a river view. The facilities and furnishings are of the highest standard - comfortable large beds, fluffy towels, bathrobes and crisp white sheets included! - and the rooms are a superbly relaxing place in which to enjoy a romantic break (or any other kind of break!). Junior suites are equipped with king sized beds, and a variety of other room specifications means you'll find exactly what you're looking for in terms of price and level of comfort.

In the restaurant, chef Mark Streeter uses a wide selection of high quality Devon foods to prepare some of the finest meals in the area. His ingredients are sourced from round and about - fresh sea fish, local meat and home baked breads. There are various options for eating, including the high quality River Restaurant, which, as you might expect, has magical views over the riverside. This provides a fine dining experience. Then there is the Wildfire Bistro and Bar, a Devon seafood grill, also serving acoustic guitar, cocktails and champagne! The excellent local beef, lamb and pork will delight you, as will the fact that the same degree of attention is paid to the side dishes and puddings as the mains. All in all, a break here will be a rejuvenating and refreshing experience, whether it lasts for one night, one week or longer!

North Devon Hotels For A Romantic Break

Clovelly - The Red Lion

Clovelly is a unique village, set in the cleft of a 400 foot high cliff, with a cobbled street which winds down an ancient fishing port. No traffic is allowed in the village, only donkeys and sledges, where the white-washed houses with geraniums sometimes seem more reminiscent of a Mediterranean village setting. But if you aren't as young as you used to be, don't despair - there's a Land Rover service (free to hotel residents) to whisk you up and down the hill to the Red Lion right on the quay. This is a magical place, where you wake to the sound of seagulls, and the sight of a natural harbour, with the slow pace of life that most of the country has now lost. Each of the eleven bedrooms with beautifully-refurbished en suite bathrooms, looks out over either the harbour or the sea, but they are all individual and have their own character, thanks to the attention of a talented interior designer. Parking space close by for The Red Lion residents. The Red Lion is licensed for weddings as is the New Inn in the heart of the village. Hotels offer nineteen en-suite bedrooms between them, with other accommodation available in the village.

Lynton - Lynton Cottage Hotel

Lynton is a great base for touring North Devon because so much of the area lies within daily exploring distance, and so many facilities are located nearby. To list just a few of these: Outovercott riding stables are a mere fifteen minutes' drive away; Ilfracombe Golf Club and Minehead Golf Club are only thirty minutes' drive away - for something more challenging, there's Saunton Sands Golf Club and championship course, slightly further. Keypitts Off Road Adventure Centre provides quad biking, paint ball, target shooting and off-road driving, as you might expect; Rosemoor Gardens, Marwood Gardens, and Arlington Court are all within comfortable driving distance; Lundy Island, a fantastic place for wild flowers and birds is just off the coast; there's also falconry and hawking tuition, hawk walks, various nature reserves and animal farms, and much more...... but what about the hotel? The superior rooms have an air of old fashioned charm with ultra modern facilities. The other rooms offer comfort and elegance with understated charm, while the public areas are the perfect place to rest while you enjoy the magnificent  views.
In the restaurant, chef/partner Allan Earl uses local produce of the highest quality to justify his second AA rosette. And there are plenty of options for eating: Sanford's restaurant maintains its traditional high quality, while a bistro style menu in the bar provides a casual lunch or dinner option. With country house style, a friendly bar, a charming Georgian lounge and an elegant dining room, this hotel offers you the perfect venue in which to relax and wind down!

West & East Devon Hotels For A Romantic Break

On the edge of Dartmoor - Mill End Hotel

Take yourself back to a bye-gone era in a hotel that features a working water wheel. The River Teign, right at the bottom of the garden, is a sign of the natural beauty of Devon which is so close at hand when you stay in this hotel, and it beckons you to explore Dartmoor’s natural beauty. Mill End resembles a comfortable country house rather more than a hotel - indeed, it offers a perfect blend of country house charm and elegance, and has been named as one of the AA’s Top 200 hotels and restaurants in England. The accommodation is superb, the food exceptional, and the location idyllic! Mill End is an excellent base for touring, though it is equally good for relaxing and enjoying the amazing Devon scenery.
The restaurant is an award-winning venue which features the finest local produce including free range eggs, local vegetables, Devon beef and fresh fish caught off the Devon and Cornwall coast. Christophe Ferraro heads the team in the kitchen, and, having worked in some Michelin-starred restaurants, he has the skill and knowledge to produce menus that have won great acclaim with both guests and press alike.
