Court in a time warp


Out-of-season Devon is an enchanting place, with mists swirling, and woodlands preparing to unfurl new leaves and blooms. Langdon Court Hotel is a good base for an early spring break. The graceful manor house has a distinguished history. Henry VIII’s last wife Catherine Parr was given the property after the previous holder of the title lost her head. Edward VII was a regular visitor, accompanied by the actress Lillie Langtry. Fast-forward to 2017, and mere subjects can also enjoy fine views across its green hills and gardens. Bedrooms are individually furnished in pale colours and elegant fabrics, and imaginative meals in the salon use local produce, including lemon sole and venison. It’s a 20-minute stroll to Wembury’s beach, where a spot of rock pooling is essential and, beyond it, the South West Coast Path leads to the pretty coastal villages of Heybrook Bay and Noss Mayo.
