Garden Breaks In North Devon
If you are looking to explore the essence of the English country garden, then North Devon is a great place to start! A North Devon gardens tour provides variety, contrast and some of the most beautiful natural scenery England has to offer. Most gardens are open from Spring to Autumn.
With a great choice of coastal and country gardens to be enjoyed, you get to take in the very best of the area and the magnificent views. When you base yourself at the Carlton, you are at the centre of a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and within a unique UNESCO biosphere.
North Devon changes so much across the seasons and these are reflected in some of England’s finest gardens. Here’s a handy guide to gardens in North Devon.
We Can Cater For All Your Requirements
We can fully cater for your day with a great range of meal options including Continental and full English breakfast choices, picnic lunches and mouth-watering three-course dinners. We can even arrange a rendezvous, where we deliver to you a hot soup and lunch – very popular during the colder months.
On your return to the hotel why not relax in our library with a hot chocolate, latte, freshly brewed tea and afternoon cake? Of course our well-stocked bar and wine list can meet your other refreshment needs.
In the current Covid-19 pandemic we are following government guidance. That means we have made sensible changes to ensure you stay safe in North Devon. For example, reduced occupancy, removal of paper materials and some decorative throws in your rooms. Tea and coffee making facilities are available on request, to ensure absolute cleanliness. And we’ve introduced single use toiletries for the time being.
It’s said that the Devon air, whether rolling across the hills and fields or breezing in from the sea, makes everyone relax. Together with our crisp cotton bedding, throws and cushions along with sumptuous beds, you are ensured a blissful night’s sleep. Guests love our new-look bedrooms that include all modern comforts like flat screen TVs (many with web access), ensuite bathrooms and welcome trays.
