Recommended places to stay

Looking for somewhere to stay when you come down to take your wine tour? Below you'll find a list of recommended accommodation, these are all places we have either stayed ourselves, or picked up customers who have given the accommodation a strong recommendation. If you've got anywhere in South Devon you think should be on the list please drop us a line.

Minadab Cottage

Anne and Andy run The Minadab Cottage, a luxury bed and breakfast situated in a picturesque thatched cottage on the road between Teignmouth and Dawlish.

The cottage itself is a much talked about local landmark, and is surrounded by colourful gardens, and in the summer is ablaze with floral colour. The house is just as interesting on the inside, with a wealth of period detail having been retained. Anne is famous for the quality of her baking, and guests we’ve picked up from The Minidab often wax lyrical about the quality of the home baked cookies.


St John's Manor

This beautiful and tastefully restored Georgian Rectory stands on the site of Bishopsteignton’s original 13th century vicarage. It’s situated in grounds of 1.3 acres, affording spectacular views over the river Teign estuary.

The Manor is situated just a short walk from Old Walls Vineyard, so it’s ideal for those who’d like a late pickup on the morning of their wine tour, or perhaps wish to visit the vineyard again under their own steam. .

There are a number of pubs serving food within walking distance, as is the Cockhaven Manor Hotel and Restaurant with bar and function facilities.
