Warm welcome to west Devon

Hushed away on a lake in Devon, just over the border from Cornwall, is one of the UK’s most idyllic places for a romantic getaway. You’ll find Lilypods floating on a secluded corner of this spectacular countryside.


If you decide to venture from your pod (we understand if the breathtaking wonder of Lilypod keeps you firmly on the water), you can while away time and wander wild open moorland, rich forests and golden beaches; all within a 30-minute drive. We boast a vineyard next door, award-winning pubs, historic houses and unique towns to delight and enchant you. 


Whether your passion is for food, rambling, the sea, wildlife or riding the waves, it’s all right here waiting for you.


When you book your stay with us you will receive our digital guide hosted by TouchStay. It’s packed with all the information and local knowledge you’ll need for your stay. But as an appetiser here are some of our top picks.
