South Devon is one of the most idyllic parts of the UK for a family holiday.  With its beautiful beaches, abundant wildlife and warm welcomes, it is the stuff that outdoor adventures and family fun is made of.  Providing beautiful places to stay to match the character and charm of the location, the Good Hotel Guide has shared four of their family friendly hotels in South Devon…

The Cricket Inn, Beesands

Ilsington Country House, Dartmoor

An elegant country house hotel surrounded by the beauty of Dartmoor, Ilsington Country House is a family run hotel that has rooms welcoming dogs, beautiful suites for couples and interconnecting rooms that are ideal for families looking for a country escape. With spectacular views of the moorland and space outside to run around in, it’s a beautiful place for children to roam, while they also provide a children’s menu a PlayStation and garden games.

Thurlestone Hotel, Kingsbridge

A five minute walk from the beach, Thurlestone Hotel has been welcoming families for over 120 years.  With a sense of old school glamour and a spectacular terrace from which to enjoy the view over afternoon tea, the hotel has a spa, swimming pool, tennis and all the entertainment needed for an active holiday in South Devon, as well as the charm of its enviable location.  There’s even a children’s club during the school holidays.

The Cary Arms, Babbacombe
