The country house hotel by the sea
Orestone Manor is an independent family run classic country house hotel. A stylish Georgian manor house, Orestone Manor is set in the pretty South Devon coastal village of Maidencombe, with spectacular sea views over Lyme Bay and beyond.
The 14 character bedrooms are unique in size and decor, and have all been lovingly refurbished using the very finest fabrics, wallpaper and fittings. Most bedrooms have sea views, several have private balconies or roof terraces, and our Garden Suite boasts a huge four poster bed and a private terrace with hot tub. It’s an eclectic mix, with something for every taste and budget, and you are advised to peruse the room details on the hotel’s website and choose one just for you.
