Treat yourself to a cosy stay in the New Year with one of North Devon’s B&Bs. Bed and Breakfasts are a great, cost-effective way to explore somewhere new (or an old favourite!), not only are they delightfully comfortable and friendly but you get to start the day the right way with a locally sourced breakfast.
If you’re looking for a short break to help ease you into the New Year, here are some of our top choices for a B&B stay in North Devon.
One of the great things about B&Bs is that they come in all different sizes and formats, with beachfront options, farm stays and town centre properties dotted all over the region, so whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.
To wake up to fresh sea air, the Waterfront Inn in Westward Ho! is a good option – cosy bedrooms, delicious breakfasts and of course those incredible views make this one perfect for anyone who loves the idea of being lulled to sleep by the waves.
Or for more peace and quiet, check out one of the many farmhouse B&Bs, like Mullacott Farm. Every morning you can wake up to a scrumptious farm-produced breakfast, with homemade bread, free-range eggs and their own home-bred sausages and bacon. The farm is well placed for exploring Exmoor, as well as popular resorts like Woolacombe and Ilfracombe and caters for both couples and families.

Like the sound of that fresh farmhouse breakfast? You’ll find a host of options with North Devon Farm Holidays, who have a huge portfolio of properties across North Devon and Exmoor. Offering both self-catering and bed and breakfast, you can find the perfect farm stay for you and with farms all over, you’ll be able to plan your trips to the coast and attractions based on what is closest.
When it comes to a B&B, we always know that the breakfast is going to be a treat and with a farmhouse B&B, it is even more so, usually because you can go and collect your own eggs and see just how well the animals are being cared for. They’re also a great way to show the kids where their food comes from and the importance of sustainability and low food miles.
If you’re travelling with children and or family members with additional needs, North Hayne Farm Cottages in South Molton is a must. The site puts you right in the heart of the region’s best-loved attractions and beaches, but most importantly it’s the first self-catering business in North Devon to have received an autism-friendly award. As well as being Autism friendly, the site has also won awards for its inclusive tourism – making it the perfect place for travellers with additional needs.
