"This Georgian hotel, set in a lushly-planted walled garden in the south Devon village of Chillington, has been given a stylish and uplifting mid-century-style makeover by its new owners. Lovely breakfasts, welcoming hosts and a make-yourself-at-home atmosphere make this one of our favourite Devon retreats."
The Daily Telegraph, August 2019
Welcome to The Whitehouse, a family run, luxurious boutique bed and breakfast hotel set in a grand Georgian house close to the south Devon coast. Enjoy a delicious breakfast overlooking the beautiful garden, relax in the guest lounges or take a drink at the elegant and well stocked bar.
We are ideally situated between Salcombe and Dartmouth, the perfect base for exploring both towns and their surrounds. Long stretches of stunning coastline stretch out on either side. Lush countryside, towns and villages are within striking distance.
Romantic, individual, and relaxed, The Whitehouse is great for couples, families and groups. Dogs are very welcome in rooms 1, 2 and 4.
We are pleased to be open again.
Make a reservation with the reassurance that it can be moved to a future date, put on ice or refunded in full if we move into lockdown again. Pubs and restaurants in the area are also now open and we happy for guests to have take out meals back at the hotel.
The Whitehouse is a huge house with a small number of guest rooms. It is perfect for social distancing and we are following guidelines and taking every precaution. Common areas are wiped down regularly and rooms are deep cleaned between stays.
You probably won’t want to leave this splendid Georgian house. That would be a shame because you’ll miss out on everything that stunning south Devon offers, but we wouldn’t blame you.
The stylish interiors include a lounge featuring comfy sofas, chairs to sink into, an open fire and two sets of French doors which open onto the garden. The family room is well stocked with games, more relaxing seating and another open fire.
The bar will no doubt be a regular haunt. We stock a selection of local ales and spirits.
Explore our beautiful garden and it’s secret hideaways.
Our individually designed boutique rooms are a mix of luxury and comfort, with a relaxed feel. The beds are huge, the bath robes and towels luxurious.
All of the house rooms are spacious and well equipped with wall mounted smart TVs, dvd players, and a mini bar with complimentary coffee, teas, water and organic milk.
The showers are like rainstorms and the baths are big enough for two. REN bathroom products are provided.
There is good Wi-Fi throughout.
This unique hotel is within easy reach of dozens of south Devon beaches. Sunbathe, surf, windsurf, paddleboard, swim, fish or simply walk the dog along this stretch of the coastal path.
We are perfectly placed between the sailing meccas of Salcombe and Dartmouth and just 5 miles from the bustling town of Kingsbridge. Many historic and quaint villages dot the countryside.
The area is a haven for foodies and lovers of local produce, spirits and wines. From our garden you can explore the network of public bridleways or even walk to the coast.
