Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in Devon

Devon is packed with amazing attractions and a rich history. As well as its verdant landscapes of rolling hills criss-crossed by narrow lanes and roads, the jagged coastline is great fun with its hidden beaches, gems and coves. Cities like Exeter and Plymouth make great places to stay in a hotel or guesthouse, with B&B accommodation liberally sprinkled across the whole county. Stay at an historic hotel and you'll see history up close and personal during your visit to Devon.

Remembrance of Past Times at Devon Historic Hotels

For leisure and business visitors to Devon alike, staying at a historic hotel will allow them easy access to the many museums, galleries and restaurants in the vicinity. Whether it's an old farmhouse converted into a guesthouse or B&B, or a grand city mansion that has become a boutique hotel, historic hotels in Devon add a touch of class to any holiday here. Many of the hotels in places like Dartmouth and Torquay, and out towards Dartmoor in the interior of Devon, date to the 16th or 17th centuries, and there's a real sense of the living past in them. There's no better way of savouring real history than to sleep in a building that was built during the Civil War or was contemporary with Richard Doddridge Blackmore, the author of the Exmoor tale Lorna Doone.

Historic Hotels in Devon for a Touch Of Class

Many of Devon's historic hotels are actually listed buildings, and the levels of service you can expect in them are usually considerably higher than in the more modern chain hotels. Old-fashioned facilities and services are things to be cherished, and the owners and managers of these often grand establishments ensure that they provide a tailored and refined service to their discriminating guests, and observe all the traditional courtesies. There's no better way of holidaying in Exeter, Plymouth or any other part of this wonderful county than to book yourself into one of Devon's historic hotels and be able to touch a bit of its living history. Devon has so many great attractions, and you'll find that you can find a good historic hotel within easy reach of most of them.
