Luxury hotel stays in Great Britain

Luxury accommodation in Great Britain

Great Britain is both an island and a political grouping of countries consisting of England, Scotland and Wales. This small island contains a wealth of diversity of geography and topography, peoples and dialects, local architecture and traditions and a rich history that has been world-facing and world-interacting for thousands of years. From the traces of the first inhabitants of the island in prehistoric times, through the colonisation by the Romans, invasions by Angles, Saxons, Vikings and Normans, to the establishment of a Parliament and constitutional monarchy, Great Britain is fascinating to explore. The landscape varies every few miles, with dales and vales, moors and coastline never far away and here and there you find proud post-industrial cities, flourishing cathedral cities, gentle market towns and picturesque villages, perhaps with a village green, pond, cricket pitch and ancient church, as well as the local pub. Traditions of local heritage feature strongly with festivals and pageants, local arts and crafts and artisan produce. Within any one region or county of this small island, there is always something else to discover.

Devon

Devon covers a large area of the south-west of England, with coasts on both the Atlantic Ocean and the English Channel. The landscape is defined by Exmoor in the north and Dartmoor towards the centre and the south of the region, deep river valleys that become wide estuaries lined by hills, fields and pretty harbour towns. The north coast produces dramatic surfing beaches whilst the south is home to sandy coves, palm tree-lined promenades and ancient naval ports. The countryside is green and lush, producing rich pastures for cattle and sheep, and with the rich soil often a deep rust colour. There are many historic pathways that criss-cross the countryside, dramatic coastal footpaths and of course, tracks on and between the great areas of moorland, making it a dream for avid walkers. In addition to the Cathedral and University city of Exeter, there are many small market towns such as Totnes, Honiton, Cullompton and Ashburton, pretty seaside resorts such as Sidmouth, Dawlish and Budleigh Salterton and coastal havens such as Dartmouth and Salcombe. There is a strong emphasis on good, local food in Devon, accompanied by local drinks such as locally made craft beer, gin, cider and fruit juices. There are Norman and mediaeval castles, historic houses, gardens, steam railways, wildlife centres and local houses associated with literary and artistic figures such as Agatha Christie's Greenway and Coleton Fishacre, the home of the D'Oyly Carte family. Sporting attractions are abundant on sea and on land, with walking paths, fishing, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing and tennis.
