Northcote Manor was built in 1716 and is set in 20 acres of mature grounds, with woodland, hidden pathways, old apple orchards and ivy-covered archways. This "beautiful" building has "wonderful views over the Taw River Valley" (The AA) and is in the village of Burrington, which has a church dating back to the 13th century.

The Good Hotel Guide 2016 refers to Northcote Manor as an "oasis of calm and tranquility". It's in the Devon hills between Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks, which are both 35 minutes' drive away. Barnstaple is 25 minutes' drive from the hotel, while the popular golden beach at Woolacombe, the National Trust properties Arlington Court and Knighthayes Court, and Castle Drogo are all within 50 minutes' drive. Exeter takes one hour by car.

The restaurant has two AA Rosettes and uses seasonal and West Country produce where possible, such as Devon-reared beef and Cornish crab. You can fish in the nearby River Taw, and the chef will happily cook your catch.

There's a bar with a log fire, and polished wooden floors with oriental rugs and Chesterfields throughout. Make sure you see the three hand-painted murals depicting Northcote Manor's history. There's also a croquet lawn and a tennis court, and a sun terrace in the walled garden. Dogs can stay in some of the bedrooms.

It would have been nice to have stayed in the Spa for awhile after checkout at the Manor at 11am. However once we had checked out at 11 am we could no longer use the Spa facility, big disappointment.

Our three night stay for our wedding anniversary was really enjoyable. The hotel is welcoming and has bags of character. Although we did not make use of it, the new spa looks fantastic. We would not hesitate to return here.
