Devon is "the great patchwork-quilt area of southwest England", according to Frommer's. Base yourself at The Woodford Bridge Country Club near Holsworthy to explore this county, which includes two national parks.

This property is a 30-minute drive from Bude, a resort that's known for its pastel-coloured beach huts and wide sandy beaches. Dartmoor National Park -- which is describes as "an area of remote wilderness and moorland" by Condé Nast Johansens -- is a 50-minute drive from the hotel, and Tintagel Castle, the birthplace of King Arthur, according to legend, is 55 minutes away.

Exmoor National Park is described as "more than a little addictive" by Lonely Planet, which also claims that "you're likely to be planning to return before you leave". If you want to delve further into this national park, then the rural town of Dulverton in West Somerset and the picturesque villages of Lynton and Lynmouth are all within an hour-and-15-minute drive of the property.

Woodford Bridge Country Club has a bar and a restaurant. There's also an indoor swimming pool, a steam room, a sauna, a gym, a squash court, a badminton court, a library and a garden.

Re-evaluate 'continental breakfast ' as a loaf of white bread and a pack of butter is a poor definition of a continental.

The comfort of the room.
Other Comments
Road noise was a nuisance. The bar area, particularly, and the restaurant lacked ambience. We didn't use any of the leisure facilities, due to the additional charges.
