If you’re looking for a romantic break in Devon, you’ll love our award-winning Devon hotels. Discover our romantic hotels in Devon’s most spectacular destinations.
From the untamed, desolate beauty of Exmoor and Dartmoor, with their granite tors and windswept moorland, to the glorious World Heritage Jurassic Coast, or the North Devon coastline offering some of the region’s best surfing, the charming fishing towns of Totnes and Salcombe, or the historic cities of Exeter and Plymouth, there is much more to blue-skied Devon than meets the eye.
Watch the mist roll over the moors like a shroud punctuated by granite limbs, the most iconic of which is Haytor, almost 1,500 feet high. Witness the wild Dartmoor Ponies grazing, or immerse yourself in the landscape with a spot of wild swimming. This is Conan Doyle’s Dartmoor. The Victorian railway town of Newton Abbot (originally referred to as the New Town of the Abbots) lies at the south east edge of Dartmoor, giving you excellent access to both the National Park and the English Riviera, South Devon’s spectacular bay.
The South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is home to the historic market town described by Time magazine as the ‘capital of New Age chic.’ Nestling in the Dart Valley, Totnes is famous for its arts, culture and alternative lifestyles. Featuring a glut of listed buildings, independent shops, an Elizabethan market, and plenty of museums and art galleries, every turn reveals something new. It is here that you will stumble across the Brutus Stone, meant to mark the spot where the Trojan Prince, Brutus, disembarked from his ship.
