Historic B&B’s in Devon

Whether you choose a B&B, a cosy inn or guest house accommodation, Devon is the ideal holiday destination. This is a county of contrasts: wild moors and tranquil valleys, sun-kissed beaches, rugged cliffs and smugglers coves. The ancient county of Devonshire is also home to the traditional cream tea – clotted cream, jam and home-made scones.
