Nestled in the village of Dartington between the Dartmoor National Park and the spectacular South Devon coastline, The Cott Inn has been serving since the 1300’s. One of the oldest thatched inns in Britain, the inn has modern en suite bedrooms upstairs and a rustic pub atmosphere downstairs. Each bedroom comes with Freeview TV and free Wi-Fi, and feature original wooden beamed ceilings. The light and airy rooms have a boutique style, and all come with complimentary toiletries and tea/coffee-making facilities. The Cott Inn has a picturesque garden with outdoor seating, surrounded by trees and shrubs. There is live music played in the bar every Sunday, where guests can enjoy a range of drinks as well as daily food specials prepared using locally-sourced produce. Just a mile from Totnes and Totnes Castle, the Cott Inn also has Dainton Park Golf Club 5 miles away and is a 20-minute drive from Torquay.

Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.1 for a two-person trip.

    We arrived at the Cott Inn and had a superb. Sunday carvery lunch. Our room was beautifully decorated and very clean and comfortable. Very friendly host and staff in a beautiful location. We were only staying one night but would love to return...

    The breakfast was excellent and cheerfully served, and the dinner likewise. It was nice to have a bath in the room, and I enjoyed the fact that the place had been 'licensed since 1320' (although documentary evidence confirming this may be elusive!)
