The Tantons Hotel lies at the heart of historic Bideford, adjacent to the town centre and opposite the ancient bridge that crosses the river Torridge, whilst Bideford itself is geographically situated at the heart of North Devon.

Tantons Hotel is privately owned and managed so that a personal and friendly service is always guaranteed.

The entire hotel has recently been tastefully refurbished, gaining the distinction of Three Stars from the English Tourism Council.

More than 50 bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom, have remote controlled satellite television, direct-dial telephone, radio/alarm clock, hair drier and facilities for making hot drinks. Bedrooms are light and airy with modern decor and bedware; single, double or twin rooms are available.

With Tantons Hotel as your base, you can explore beautiful small harbours like Clovelly, Ilfracombe and Lynmouth, visit the markets of Barnstaple (England’s oldest borough), South Molton and Torrington or sail to Lundy Island.

A scenic and largely rural region, North Devon is bordered by Exmoor National Park, renowned for its striking country and coastal views and herds of wild deer. The North Devon coastline, studded with tiny harbour towns, excellent swimming beaches and breathtaking cliff-top walks, is also so picturesque that it has been designated ‘an area of outstanding natural beauty’.
