Our most relaxing hotels in the South West

I f you’re looking for a relaxing holiday by the coast or countryside filled with moments to remember, you’ve come to the right place.

While away the hours in our most relaxing hotels.

Our collection of pubs, inns and hotels nestle at the heart of the South West’s most beautiful destinations. Unwind at the following highlights, where you’ll find everything you need to capture the essence of tranquillity.

Masons Arms, Branscombe

When you picture a cosy country hideaway, there are a few essential features that come to mind: a thatched roof, low beamed ceilings, pine cladding, and the warmth of a log fire. The Masons Arms ticks all the boxes and boasts 28 boutique hotel-style rooms that blend character and comfort.

The village of Branscombe is one of East Devon’s most charming destinations. Secluded and surrounded by rural views, there’s a beach just moments away, with Jurassic Coast trails winding in both directions.

Pedn Olva, St Ives

Enjoy a slice of luxury in St Ives with a stay at the Pedn Olva. This blissful hotel sits proudly on granite rocks, thirty feet above the bay’s sapphire waters. The views are unrivalled here, encompassing an enviable sweep of the coastline to the mouth of the harbour.

The hotel impresses with 30 contemporary bedrooms that each admire the mesmerising vista. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a spot for taking it all in, with scenic terraces and an outdoor heated pool among the highlights.

Hope & Anchor, Hope Cove

Perched beside the beach, the Hope & Anchor is home to 12 stylish rooms and a family suite overlooking the sea. All rooms enjoy sparkling en-suite bathrooms and touches to make your stay special. The suite offers everything you need for a home away from home, comprising two bedrooms, a kitchenette/living room, and a shared bathroom. Hope Cove is a picturesque village in the South Hams with golden beaches and hidden coves lying in either direction along the coastal path.

Rock Point Inn, Lyme Regis

Lyme Regis is hailed as the ‘The Pearl of Dorset’ for good reason. To find out why, treat yourself to a break at the Rock Point. This beautiful inn lies on the edge of the harbour, the ideal base camp for treks along the Jurassic Coast to the Golden Cap in the east and Beer in the west. We recently transformed the historic building with a complete refurb, giving each of its nine en-suite rooms a stylish facelift that enhanced mod cons and snug details.

Rose & Crown, Yealmpton

Experience Devon’s restful countryside with a break at the Rose & Crown. This beautiful inn is adorned with rich textures and colours that radiate an elegant warmth across cosy nooks, sofas that are easy to sink into, and a roaring fire.

Outside, an attractive walled garden serves as an idyllic suntrap that’s perfect for dining al fresco and sipping on drinks as the sun fades to night. Relax in one of eight en-suite boutique hotel-style rooms that lie across a three-storey period house adjacent to the pub.

Havener’s, Fowey

Fowey has quintessential Cornish cosiness in spades. With an abundance of literary links, there are few places more appropriate for settling down with a good book. You can do just that while facing a gorgeous view of the water from Havener’s.

There are five smart bedrooms here, each showcasing a coastal theme that blends with the authentic character of the building. For an extra layer of luxury, book the waterfront apartment: a two-bedroom retreat with exceptional views, a fully-equipped kitchen, a Grade II listed dining room, and its own private balcony.
