WALKING HOLIDAYS IN DEVON

From countryside to coastline, Devon is a dream location for your UK walking holiday. And, hidden away in the heart of the picturesque Devon countryside, Lakeview Manor is the perfect base.

ENJOY A WALKING BREAK IN DEVON

Nothing can beat a UK walking break in Devon, whether you’re after an easy-going nature ramble or a head-clearing coastal hike. Stay at Lakeview Manor and explore our 45-acre estate before heading out to the nearby Blackdown Hills for a more energetic climb.

Further afield, Devon has not one, but two separate coastlines, both served by the South West Coast Path, for long refreshing walks with sea views. Inland, enjoy two separate moorland national parks, plentiful designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and trails, bridleways and nature reserves.

When you’ve clocked up the walking miles, you want to be sure you are coming back to a relaxing oasis, where you can grab a bite to eat, enjoy a soak in the hot tub and fall into a comfortable bed with crisp cotton sheets. And, of course, you need to know that your dog is welcome too. All this and more awaits you on your Devon walking break at Lakeview Manor, and not only is your dog welcome, but they can stay for free.

LOCAL WALKS FROM LAKEVIEW MANOR

Straight from your doorstep at Lakeview Manor, you have our 45-acre estate with lakes, meadows and woodlands to explore and dog-friendly trails to follow. We’re lucky enough to be situated next to the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and here you can enjoy some more challenging walks, stopping to take in some of the best views in Devon. Also on our doorstep is the East Devon AONB. Have a look at our map of  local walks to get some inspiration for an easy-going walking break in Devon.

UK WALKING HOLIDAYS IN DEVON

It’s time to grab your boots and look further afield. Choosing Devon for your walking break  in the UK is one of the best decisions you could make. The South West Coast Path, covering both the north and south of Devon, has miles and miles of spectacular walks. Closest to Lakeview Manor is the Jurassic coast in South Devon and Dorset, where you follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs. The north coast offers more challenging walks which are rewarded with great views and picturesque fishing villages. There are circular walks too, so you can park up and come back to the car, enjoying coast and countryside.

For a wilder experience away from the crowds, Dartmoor and Exmoor are both great places to walk, and if nature is on your agenda, take a walk in some of Devon’s wonderful nature reserves, such as Hawkswood for butterflies, Rackenford and Knowstone Moors for the possibility of red deer and Matford Marshes for bird-spotting.

WINDING DOWN FROM YOUR WALK

After a day – or even an hour – of walking, it’s heaven to come back to a luxury self-catering lodge, where you can take off your boots and let the peaceful surroundings relax you. Choose a Lakeview Lodge, set above the lake, a Lake Front Lodge right at the lake’s edge, or a Brook View Lodge that overlooks the brook, for complete peace in a natural setting. And nothing soothes away cycling aches and pains more than a soak in a hot tub, particularly when you can enjoy those views.

If you prefer the comfort of a hotel stay, book into our traditional country manor house hotel, where a comfy bed awaits and a hearty breakfast is included, to set you up for your walk. Whether you are self-catering or staying at the hotel, make the most of your holiday by enjoying a delicious dinner cooked with fresh seasonal produce at the Dabbling Duck Restaurant and Bar.

And remember, the dog is welcome, free of charge – we have dog-friendly lodges and dog-friendly hotel rooms too. With a great location, the whole of Devon to explore, and a touch of luxury to help you relax, Lakeview Manor is the ideal base for a UK walking break.
