The Little Black Book: Family Holidays

  • mansion house with flowers

    Beyond Escapes

    Muddy Says: Is this a total find, or what?! A gorgeously secluded selection of luxury lodges, suites and apartments just outside Totnes, close to the coastline of Torbay. With a rather spanky spa and gym on-site, plus a relaxed restaurant, with views, this one basically has R-E-L-A-X written all over it in permanent marker.

  • glamping tent at night fairy lights

    Lower Keats Glamping

    Muddy says: 6 safari tents decadently decked out, panoramic countryside views whilst being minutes from the Jurassic Coast, farmland fun for kids. With every single detail taken care of, can (posh) camping be any more of a doddle?

  • hot tub sea view

    Cliff House

    Muddy says: Well hello Cliff House, you South Devon beauty! Need a view of the sea from your family-friendly holiday rental? Try panoramic views on three sides in this one.

  • exterior white hotel with green and outdoor seating

    Thurlestone Hotel, Kingsbridge

    Muddy says: A super-pretty playground with a timeless charm, this family-friendly hotel will have you yearning for a staycation (not least because of *that* spa).

  • exterior of safari lodge in countryside with blue sky

    Longlands Luxury Glamping

    Muddy says: After a stay at this pretty damn idyllic spot near the North Devon coast, you'll never, ever want to camp without a Chesterfield sofa again. This is every glamper's dream, basically a boutique hotel under canvas.

  • Whitehouse Chillington

    Whitehouse, Chillington

    Muddy says: Brought to you by the people behind two of the area's most stylish foodie destinations, we're bowled over by this glam bolthole near the south Devon coast.

  • Coast and Country Cottages 32 Dart Marina Dartmouth

    Coast & Country Cottages

    Muddy says: award-winning? Yep; decent selection of gorgeous properties to choose from? Massive, actually; Super-knowledgeable? When it comes to South Devon, definitely. Need any more reasons to look up Coast & Country Cottages when you plan your next trip this way? I could go on...

  • Paschoe House exterior night

    Paschoe House, Bow

    Muddy says: Romantic, relaxed, super-stylish and the ultimate in fun and luxury. As Devon's destination hotels go, Paschoe House, the newest bolthole on the block, takes some beating.

  • deckchairs on sun terrace looking out to sea

    Holiday Accommodation Devon

    Muddy says: two cracking holiday rentals in great locations around Teignmouth for all the family. All you have to do is decide if you want contemporary luxury, or characterful cosiness. What a dilemma.

  • West Charleton Grange

    Muddy says: With six super-luxe self-catering cottages nestled in one of the prettiest parts of Devon, is there anywhere more geared up for family-friendly holidays and group shindigs? Err, we think not.
