Best Western have 6 hotels in Devon

> See all hotels in Devon

Buried deep in the heart of the English 'West Country,' Devon is a rural, traditional and beautiful county and is very much worth a visit. Best Western has seven hotels spread throughout the county, dotted around the wonderful seaside town of Torquay, the quiet town immortalised by John Cleese's 'Fawlty Towers,' as well as the market town of Newton Abbot, the county town of Exeter and many more charming south-western settlements.

Town and city breaks in Devon

Exeter descended from an important Roman settlement, a fact which is easily visible in the town's interesting landmarks and architecture. It's best to explore the 2000-year-old settlement on foot, so everything can be absorbed, and to head along the cobbled streets and through the city squares, a picturesque downhill stroll from the 12th-century cathedral, all the way to the bustling Quayside. Torquay is home to two of our hotels in Devon, and is a highly recommended destination for anyone who loves boats, boutiques and stylish restaurants. Plymouth, the vibrant and cosmopolitan city nestled on the south coast, plays host to perhaps our most glamorous hotel in Devon, the Duke of Cornwall, where the impressive Victorian-Gothic architecture sets the tone for the stay to come. Positioned just minutes from the city's historic harbour, where the pilgrims set forth to colonise America aboard the Mayflower, its location is second to none.

Holidays in the Devon countryside

As one of the largest counties in the country, Devon has a delightfully varied and exciting landscape, containing both the moorland and valleys of Dartmoor and Exmoor, two of the most rugged and untouched areas in England. A hotel in Devon makes a perfect base for roaming and exploring these vast wildernesses, whether on foot, bike or even horseback. South Devon is a landscape of gentle rolling hills, framed in the distance by the ruggedness of Dartmoor - a delightful contrast. The county is peppered with designated 'Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.' Fly a kite with the kids on the wonderful dunes of Braunton Burrows or escape the crowds and noise in the peaceful woodlands of the Teign Valley.

Beach holidays in Devon

A great family trip is to the wonderfully-named Babbacombe, where you'll find the highest cliff-top promenade in England, as well as some of the country's most beautiful vistas and stunning panoramas. Take a day trip to Paignton, another classic coastal town and the perfect base to visit some of the areas most wonderful beaches, most of which are full of caves and rock pools - a perfect day out for the children! If your Devon Hotel is to the North, head to Croyde Bay and Woolaccombe where surfers frolic in the strong Atlantic swells, watched by scattered families enjoying the vast open swathes of sandy beaches.

Attractions in Devon

For more marine-themed fun, head to the Marine Life Centre on Goodrington Sands, a great day out for the kids! For a bit of history, check out Brixham, where you can see a life-size replica of the Golden Hind or you can have a wander around the Napoleonic forts, built during the Age Of Sail as protection against our biggest threat: France. Woodlands Family Theme Park will tire out the liveliest children or for something highly unusual, check out the water-powered cliff railway at Lynton and Lynmouth. Wherever your hotel in Devon turns out to be you will undoubtedly have a memorable and enchanting short break. With its variety, history and beauty, it is without a doubt one of the best locations for a UK weekend break.
