Royal Celerity


Introducing our award-winning bridal suite, Royal Celerity. With a five-star gold rating, this romantic cottage offers sheer luxury with uninterrupted countryside views.

Enjoy a complimentary Devonshire cream tea when you arrive, as you settle into your home-from-home. The cottage has a super comfy Parisian bed, lined with Egyptian cotton bedding, while the en-suite bathroom features a walk-in shower with a heat-sensitive waterfall light effect. Unwind on a sun lounger with a chilled glass of wine on the private first-floor balcony, or sink into the round two-person whirlpool tub.

Royal Celerity is a spectacular high-end cottage, designed to make you feel like royalty. From the open-plan living space and spacious kitchen, to the inglenook fireplace and reclining leather sofas, the cottage is perfect for a tranquil, romantic short break. After a dip in the couples tub, wrap up in the complimentary bathrobes and slippers before relaxing on the comfy sofas. If you're so relaxed you don't feel like cooking, don't worry. We can arrange for our executive chef and his team to cook a delicious menu for you at the cottage, using the freshest and finest local ingredients. After dinner, marvel at the night skies with the professional telescope on the balcony.

This cottage is perfect for couples who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. While North Devon's glorious sandy beaches and country walks are just moments away, we understand that sometimes you just need to be pampered. If a dip in the whirlpool bath isn't enough, you can privately book our experienced masseur to treat you in the privacy of your cottage.

On warm summer's day, lounge outside in the private south-facing garden. Open the French doors and dine al-fresco, all the while overlooking rolling hills and the Atlantic. Keep drinks chilled in the wine cooler. If you're eager to experience the surrounding countryside and coast, there are so many ways to do it. For beach-lovers, Westward Ho! is a fantastic place to surf and sunbathe, and even has a tidal pool for a relaxing swim. The South West Coast Path stretches away from Duckhaven Stud to many popular North Devon towns, villages and beaches. Of course, make sure you stop for a delicious pub lunch or luxurious meal at one of the region's many fine-dining restaurants. After a grand day out exploring the sights and sounds, knowing you can return to the comfort of Royal Celerity is a wonderful feeling.

Couples with babies looking for luxurious family time are also most welcome. We can provide complimentary travel cots with memory foam mattresses and high chairs, so you don't have to worry about packing and unloading bulky items on your relaxing holiday. If there's anything else we can do for you during your stay, just let us know.

You'll feel like a celebrity during a stay in Royal Celerity!

The cottage (Royal Celerity) was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, relaxing in the Jacuzzi style bathtub and visiting the horses. Impossible to improve, thank you for a wonderful weekend away to celebrate my husband's birthday.  We couldn’t have asked for more.  It really was perfect!
