Food & Drink
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.
Muddy says: Like your meals cosy, intimate and more than a bit delicious? You'll love the Fig Tree @ 36 then, an every-occasion restaurant located in a quiet backwater.
Muddy Says: We've a lot of love for this Exeter indie. Open all day, every day for casual dining in a buzzy atmosphere, with seasonal menus, huge variety and a naughty cocktail list to boot.
Muddy says: A cosy, elegant bar in Exeter's bustling cultural quarter, with so many artisan gins it would take months to work through them all (or just a really, really good weekend!)
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).
Muddy Says: In a city where bland chain hotels dominate, what a relief to discover a small, indie, boutique hotel that should be on everyone's 'must-stay' list. Exeter's best-kept secret.
Muddy says: Every Dartmoor walk needs a cosy cafe at the end of it; every town needs a twinkly restaurant; Home Farm Cafe, on the National Trust's Parke estate, is Devon's little delight.
Muddy says: You voted, we totally agree! Cosy and with the warmest welcome in town, everyone needs a pub like 2017's Muddy Award-winning Thatched Inn in their lives.
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.
