Lifton Hall has been described as one of Devon's most attractive and interesting hotels.
The building is grade II listed and parts of it date back to about 1611. It is brimming with period features, traditional character and fascinating tales, reportedly including a ghost or two. We are a friendly, family run hotel and aim to make your stay in Devon as pleasant and relaxing as possible.
The entrance hall provides a dramatic introduction to the hotel, with its Cornish slate floor, winding staircase leading to a galleried landing, and a high ceiling supporting a fine chandelier. Lifton Hall was extended in the early 1800s by the church when gothic features were added.
"Warm, welcoming and well located . . . I absolutely loved it!"
- Dodders, Newbury
We now have ten large and individual bedrooms, each offering comfortable accommodation with their own bathroom/shower room. One of our bedrooms is on the ground floor and easily reached without the need to climb stairs.
We welcome families in the hotel and two of our rooms can easily accommodate up to four people (two adults and two children or three adults). We also welcome well behaved pets - as long as you let us know in advance. We don't allow pets in the breakfast/dining room, so they need to be happy to be left alone in the bedroom during mealtimes. There's a £5 charge per pet.
Outside we have a private car park surrounded by mature shrubs and a split level garden with mature trees.
There are two patio areas, one on either side of the building, where you can quietly sit reading your daily paper with a fresh coffee, or indulge yourself with a Devon Cream Tea made with freshly made scones and thick, Devon clotted-cream and strawberry jam.
