Beyond Escapes, Berry Pomeroy

Baby Friendly

Lower Keats Glamping, Tytherleigh

Muddy says: 6 safari tents decadently decked out, panoramic countryside views, 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?

Sunridge Treehouse, Lodge & Glamping, nr Yealmpton

Muddy says: is this the coolest spot to glamp it up in Devon? With a lodge, a treehouse, luxury bell tents and a cute ecopod all in residence hidden amidst the woodland, well, quite possibly, yes.

Camping and Glamping

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).

The Old Kennels

Muddy says: we're totally on board with the idea of a little creative indulgence, but wouldn't it be lovely if there were a place that took you out of the everyday and into a pretty, peaceful and relaxing space to focus on learning something new? Oh, hello The Old Kennels, the pleasure is all ours.

Longlands Luxury Glamping, Combe Martin

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.

Camping and Glamping

Southernhay House, Exeter

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.

Orbis Expeditions

Orbis Expeditions

Muddy says: Ahhh, finally a travel company offering so much more than a bog standard package holiday! If it's the year for experiential travel, or a really immersive cultural experience and Malawi is top of your list of must-visit places, then you, my friend, can stop the search now.

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.

Coastal Holiday Cottages

Muddy says: An iconic, glamorous, superluxe Art Deco hotel standing majestically on its own island off the south Devon coast; a secluded retreat, surrounded by natural drama.

Fun Finder

West Charleton Grange, nr Kingsbridge

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.

Coastal Holiday Cottages

Muddy says: what makes the perfect, luxurious beach escape? The right beach? Tick. The right surroundings? Tick. And most importantly, the right place. Tick tick tick!

Coastal Holiday Cottages

Braunton Holiday Cottage

Muddy says: this rather handsome Georgian home, with a relaxed family-friendly vibe is right in the centre of one of North Devon's loveliest villages, putting you a hop, skip and a surf away from the coast's most magnificent beaches.
