We like

Northcote Manor in North Devon is surrounded by 20 acres of pretty gardens, woodlands and fields that seem to stretch on forever. It's not surprising that you'll very quickly feel your city stress disappearing. Go for a stroll and gaze out over the Taw River Valley, or drive the short distance to Exmouth National Park for a walk. You can also visit the nearby Devonshire towns and villages for cobbled streets, quaint shops and markets.

The hotel can organize fishing or cycling, and you can also play golf at one of the many nearby courses. There are fewer more lovely places to go horseback-riding than here, which can be easily arranged. Don't forget that you're just a short drive from the coast, so if you want to go sailing or just stroll along the beach, you can.
