About the hotel

In the heart of Ruby Devon, and within easy access of the coast at North Devon, North Cornwall and The Moors. The Bickford Arms has stood at Brandis Corner near Holsworthy since the 17th Century, first as a coaching inn and now as a completely rebuilt traditional pub and restaurant, offering bed and breakfast. Reduced to a shell by a disastrous fire in 2003, The Bickford Arms has been lovingly restored into a stunning mix of period features and modern-day comfort.

Set in the heart of Devon's magnificent Ruby Country, The Bickford Arms is only a short drive from Dartmoor and the fabulous beaches of North Devon and North Cornwall. It is both a well-respected community pub and a superb venue for private functions and weddings. If you want to stop over for a short break, you will find the accommodation first class. The pub is rated AA four stars, so you can be sure that your stay will be comfortable and your welcome will be warm. There are five spacious letting bedrooms, all centrally heated, with bath and shower en-suite, and beautifully furnished with modern character furniture in traditional style. Every room has a TV and a tea and coffee maker. Each room is named after a principal family on the Bickford family tree, which dates back to the 1300s. Warm, comfortable and relaxing, our rooms are ideal for an overnight stay or a longer weekend break.

What's not to like.....

Nice pub, friendly staff and good food.....

what more can you ask for. My room was not one of the suites but was more than adequate for my needs and had one of the nicest walk in showers I've used!
