Guesthouses and B&Bs
The Magdalen Chapter
Undoubtedly Exeter's coolest hotel (staff wear converse trainers and low-slung slacks) the Magdalen is replete with funky flourishes...
St Elizabeth's House
This pamper palace overflows with jaw-dropping bathrooms, from free-standing tubs and wetrooms, to waterfall baths with a TV above your toes. Bedrooms are the size of suites and suites are the size of apartments...
Modern, minimal and marvellous; this ultrachic guesthouse is a study of neutral tones and dashes of vivid colour. It's graced by pony-skin chaises longues and stand-alone baths; some rooms have sea glimpses.
The Osborne Hotel
The terrace of this grand, crescent-shaped hotel is more St Tropez than Torquay: think palm trees, white parasols and utterly bewitching sea views. Rooms feature brown leather and neutral tones, beds range from four poster to brass-framed and sleigh...
A real surprise sits behind this hillside B&B's conventional exterior – supremely stylish, streamlined rooms, done out in dark wood, crisp white and flashes of lime...
The White Hart Hotel
Coaching inns don't come much more established than this 17th-century town-centre hostelry. Some bathrooms may need a little TLC, but bedrooms are comfy, with wrought-iron candelabras, warming pans and beams scattered all round...
Royal Seven Stars Hotel
They've been putting up travellers here since Charles II's day, and this grand old coaching inn in the heart of Totnes is all 17th-century charm...
Southernhay House Hotel
In the 1800s, this was a prestigious gentleman's residence; now it's an impeccably run, luxury sleep spot. Antiques and velvet furnishings cosy up to slate walls and exotic artefacts, and curving wooden banisters wind towards immense, flat-screen TVs...
Red Lion Hotel
Not so much a room with a view, more a view with a room...
There are so many reasons to make these serviced apartments your Exeter pied-á-terre...
Collaven Manor Hotel
For a delightful dollop of old England, head to this exquisite, 15th-century minimanor house. A baronial hall, ancient beams and sumptuous furnishings reinforce the heritage-meets-modern comforts feel. It's 5 miles southwest of Okehampton.
Two Bridges Hotel
Polished wood panels, hand-hewn furniture and the sense of entering a cocoon-like country house define this elegant moorland hotel...
North Walk House
This smart cliffside house is refreshingly frill-free, with five colour-themed rooms decked out with stripy bedspreads, wood floors, pine furniture and the odd sea view...
The White Hart Hotel
The mail coaches used to change horses here in Georgian days; today it's a smoothly comfortable hotel with beams and bow ceilings, tartan carpets, and the odd military print on the walls. The restaurant does classy bar food (mains £11 to £20).
There's not a doily in sight in simple rooms done out in subtle colours and tinted throws. The large, mounted soft-toy moose head above the front door (a nod to Fawlty Towers ) adds a dash of comedy.
St Olaves Hotel
This hotel's swirling spiral staircase is so beautiful it's tempting to sleep beside it. But if you did, you'd miss out on the 18th-century-with-contemporary-twist bedrooms: think rococo mirrors, brass bedsteads and plush furnishings.
Chough's Nest Hotel
For clifftop position, this Lynton B&B is unbeatable. It goes a bit overboard with the frips and floral fabrics, but if you can get a room with a sea view, you'll be a happy bunny.
Gidleigh Park Hotel
This sumptuous oasis of ultimate luxury teams crests, crenellations and roaring fires with shimmering sanctuaries of blue marble, waterproof TVs and private saunas...
The Olive Branch
Georgian trimmings (bay windows and ceiling roses), meet modern furnishings (oval armchairs and beautifully carved wood) to make this a swish, in town retreat. All rooms but one have grandstand views over the bay and the steeply-sloping Capstone Hill.
How often do you get to kip in the grounds of a castle? Snug bedrooms set in thatched cottages frame a flower-filled central courtyard; the 11th-century fortifications rise behind. Expect beams, country-cottage furnishings and total tranquility...
The brightly painted, country-cottage bedrooms above this farmhouse have views over War Horse location, Combestone Tor. Converted barns provide another batch of rooms and there's back-to-nature camping too...
Laura Ashley herself would love the lashings of tasteful fabrics, four-poster beds and free-standing slipper baths on show here...
