If you’re planning a trip to North Devon over Father’s Day weekend, there’s plenty to see and do. Whether or not you’re marking the day, here are some of the things you can do with or without your dad!

It’s Sunday which means you’ll find plenty of places offering incredible mouth-watering menus to enjoy and because it is also Father’s Day – you’ll find special offers, additional menus and more to tempt you.

Watersmeet Hotel in Woolacombe is one such place offering Father’s Day lunches. With incredible views and having recently winning the Best Waterside Hotel award from Conde Nast, this is a pretty special location for lunch! This Father’s Day, Watersmeet Hotel are hosting a BBQ on the lawn with no bookings required. If you want something more traditional, you can also stop in for a Sunday roast or a cream tea – make sure to phone to make a reservation before turning up for these though!

In Bideford, the Royal Hotel are also offering a special lunch for Father’s Day. Running all day from 12 noon until 8pm, join the team at the Royal for a Father’s Day Carvery for the whole family. With a choice of one or two courses and some lovely surroundings, this is a great way to celebrate the father figures in your life. Book your table now here

Alternatively, why not use this as an opportunity to enjoy a traditional cream tea? There are plenty of places to grab a cream tea and take in the beautiful scenery of Exmoor or the North Devon coastline. Or you could combine your day out with a tasty cream tea by visiting RHS Rosemoor. Spend some time exploring the gardens and then finish off with a cream tea in their café while soaking up the atmosphere.

Is your father figure interested in playing a couple of rounds of golf? Then North Devon is the place to be! Did you know some of the oldest golf courses in England can be found in the region? Even if you don’t manage to book any time on the North Devon Golf Club or any of the other big clubs, there are plenty of places offering Golf Breaks – some of the hotels even have their own courses! Not so much a fan of golf but still likes to be active? Check out places like the Mole Resort where you can enjoy a host of different activities throughout Father’s Day weekend.

Want to avoid the crowds? That doesn’t mean you can’t give the gift of Devon! There are several places offering vouchers and gift cards offering everything from stays to meals out and experiences! If you need some inspiration, take a look at the below, they all offer gift cards so your dad can enjoy himself any time.

Or for a physical gift, why not head to Dartington Crystal and pick him up something special? You could even combine a trip to get a gift with a day out with their many exhibitions!
