What our guests have to say

Local Attractions

Exe Estuary

Wildlife lovers will adore Exe Estuary, a site of international significance for wading birds. During the winter, you’ll be able to spot the 30,000 birds residing on the estuary, including the dark-bellied brant goose, Eurasian wigeon, ringed plover, and pied avocet. And the delightful surroundings just add to the magic of the region. 

Lundy Island

The largest island in the Bristol Channel, Lundy is renowned for its famous wildlife – most notably the local puffin colonies. A picturesque island with fewer than 30 permanent residents, Lundy is a peaceful retreat, making for a perfect day out

Lancaster Castle

Thought to date back to the 11th century, Lancaster Castle has played a key role in England’s history, not least during the English Civil War, and the Scottish invasions of the 14th century. Today, the castle sits proudly in the ancient, charming city of Lancaster, providing an insight into the country’s storied past.

Minack Theatre

Perched on cliffs, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean; Minack Theatre, close to the pretty fishing village of St. Ives, is perhaps England’s most striking and beautiful open-air theatre. For almost 100 years, the theatre has hosted performances and is still actively used between Easter and September. If you’re in the area through summer, Minack Theatre is a must visit. 

Whitby Abbey

Best known as the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Whitby Abbey is a former Christian monastery and Benedictine Abbey, which now stands in ruin. Sitting imperiously high on the cliffs overlooking the quaint town of Whitby and the raging Northern Sea – Whitby Abbey is simultaneously peaceful and dramatic. Head to the abbey for sunset and enjoy the finest views the North East has to offer
