Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

  Our South-West England places to stay are spread across five counties – Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset, the last containing the city of Bath, notable for its charming small hotels. There is also the metropolitan area of Bristol, the most highly populated in the South-West. Click on these counties for summary listings of our hotels in each. These will then lead you to detailed hotel descriptions.

  The South-West vies with the Lake District and London for the position of England's most popular tourist area. The further west you go, the milder it gets, because of the influence of the Atlantic. And the coastline grows ever more spectacular: Cornwall boasts more miles of rugged cliffs and sweeping surfing beaches than anywhere else, but the coastlines of Dorset, Devon and Somerset can be sensational too.

  You'll find an exceptionally interesting range of places to stay to choose from: guesthouses, inns, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm that we seek out. Driftwood on Cornwall's lovely Roseland peninsula is a long-time favourite, summing up almost everything we look for, as is Fingals in south Devon. Not surprisingly, the South-West of England contains one of the best selections of truly charming small places to stay in Britain.
