Come and enjoy the tranquillity and beautiful setting of South Allington House for the perfect rural getaway in South Devon. Nestled in a picturesque secluded valley minutes from the beach in the South Hams, the magnificent Georgian house, set in spacious grounds, offers bed & breakfast en-suite rooms and self-catering barn conversions.
Explore the stunning scenery of South Devon and choose between fun on the beaches, exhilarating coastal walks, or lively family entertainment in the local towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth or Totnes.
South Allington House, in the hamlet of Chivelstone, is a Grade II Georgian manor house, set in four acres of beautiful grounds, between Start Point and Prawle Point, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
For those guests wanting the freedom of self-catering, The Laurels, The Coach House and Coachman’s Lodge are within the grounds of the main house, and offer comfort and modern facilities that make them a home from home.
For both bed and breakfast and self-catering guests there is ample parking and you are free to use the grounds, including croquet, tennis court and coarse fishing. Devon cream teas with homemade scones and jam are served on the lawn in the summer.
South Allington House can also be booked for a special occasion – a wedding reception or celebratory party. A marquee on the lawn and beautiful gardens for photographic opportunities will make your day one to remember.
We pride ourselves on using sustainable tourism and environmentally-friendly products and schemes to protect our environment. Please read our Green Holidays page for further information.
Barbara and Edward Baker have been welcoming guests to South Allington House for 26 years, and look forward to greeting both familiar and new faces in the future.
