For family holidays and romantic breaks or even solo trips, Devon has a wealth of beautiful locations and luxury spa hotels in which to spend quality time.
Salcombe, for example, in the South Hams is amongst the best known holiday destinations and a sailor’s paradise, while Dartmouth is a historic port town offering old world charm in abundance and Dartmoor has the kind of rugged beauty usually reserved for novels.
For example, the Thurlestone Hotel has just the right amount of old school charm set alongside contemporary style and service. It is complete with The Voyage Spa, combining top class modern facilities with a touch of classic nostalgia from the golden age of ocean travel. Bovey Castle is another favourite - a historic five star hotel also has 22 three-storey Bovey Castle lodges to stay in across the estate. They’re perfect for groups of friends or families looking for that extra bit of privacy and time together. Then again, you may travel to North Devon’s Saunton Sands Hotel and Source Spa, which sits resplendent on a perch above the beach. The hotel is contemporary inside but gives hints of a bygone era with art deco features peppered across it.
Combining luxurious locations with exceptional experiences, many of Devon’s most decadent hotel spas are part of Spabreaks.com's exclusive Elysium Collection. For example, Gaia Spa at Boringdon Hall is a lavish hotel for romantic breaks, and a contemporary spa that’s perfect for groups. It combines postcard perfect views over Dartmoor as well as an abundance of history, while the spa makes it a five star destination. Their Elysium Awakening Spa Break means arriving to a bottle of Champagne and enjoying three nights of pampering and indulgence.
