About us

Devonshire House was built in 1935 and it was built as an annexure to the Devonshire Hotel and was known to receive the overflow of guests from the Devonshire Hotel.

It has formed an integral part of history. Back in 1935, Devonshire only had 1 bathroom right at the top of the attic.

To date Devonshire House now has 7 full bathrooms. The property had stables that used to hold horses. The “old stables” have been converted into our 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom self-catering units.
