We cover the whole of Devon, so we have plenty to choose from whether you are looking for a large countryside house, an apartment by the sea or a lodge with a hot tub. Each holiday property has been Visit England rated so you can be assured of the quality.
We cater for all. Our listings and descriptions will show properties with ground floor accommodation and those that have gone further by installing ramps, widening doorways and lowering worktop heights. We are also catering for man’s best friend, the dog! Over half of our properties are pet-friendly, catering for up to 6 pets at some properties. We even have some cottages with stabling so you can bring your horse and discover Devon from horseback.
Many of our properties have a real fire making breaks all year round a joy. Or jump into a relaxing hot tub in one of our lodges, cottages or even a shepherd hut. We have many cottages that cater for just two making a romantic trip to Devon easy to plan, whether you want the seclusion and peace of the countryside or a city break on the coast. Large properties can cater for large families or reunions of friends with accommodation for up to 47 guests at a time.
To many, views from a property are important and Devon is really spoilt in this department and we have some amazing properties to go along with those views. Devon is blessed with several areas designated as AONBs (Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and we have a wide choice of properties in all of them. There are 15 National Parks in the UK and Devon has two of them, Dartmoor and Exmoor and again we have a wide selection of properties to choose from within the parks themselves. We have riverside and estuary properties, the River Dart, Yealm and the Kingsbridge Estuary being some notable ones with some stunning properties that are waterside.
If you are looking to go out for a walk in Devon, you may need more than a week’s stay! The county has thousands of miles of walks, footpaths and bridleways to explore, a great way to see more of this beautiful part of the world. We can’t cover them all here, but some you may want to consider are the South West Coast Path, The Mamhead Sensory Trail, The Tark Trail, Wistman’s Wood, the Tor’s of Dartmoor, the Teign Gorge, Lydford Gorge and Bystock Nature Reserve.
Devon is rich in attractions and activities. Once again I would need more space to do this subject justice so I will just highlight a few for you. If you want to keep things outside, Dartmoor and Exmoor offer amazing landscapes with diverse moorland walks aplenty. The South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty really is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Walk along the Grand Western Canal, visit the Tamar Lakes, visit the Start Point or Bull Point lighthouses, Watermouth Castle, Stover Nature Reserve, Axe Valley Wildlife Park, the National Trust’s Overbeck’s Garden or Coleton Fishacre, waterfalls at Canonteign Falls or Castle Drogo.
For family days out, try Woodlands Family Theme Park, Crealy Theme Park, The Big Sheep, The Milky Way Adventure Park, Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Paignton Zoo, Exmoor Zoo, get on the Deer Train at World of Country Life, the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth and Pennywell Farm.
If you are looking for some art and culture, visit Exeter Cathedral, the Royal Albery Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, the Brook Gallery, Lydford Castle, Greenway House the home of Agatha Christie, Buckfast Abbey, Arlington Court, the Museum of British Surfing, the Finch Foundry, Dart Gallery, Yarak Birds of Prey, Ilfracombe Museum or Moretonhampstead Motor Museum.
Aside from the incredible walking opportunities across the county, there are plenty more activities to do or try for the first time. There are surf schools on both the North and South coasts, sailing schools as well as kitesurfing and windsurfing, plenty of golf courses both countryside and coastal, climbing, fishing, riding, archery, cycling, canoeing or go tree surfing with zip wires and Tarzan swings 70ft up in the tree tops.
And finally, the coast. Devon is blessed with a South and North coastline and they could not be more different giving some lovely variety. Lots of family-friendly sandy beaches, bring a bucket and spade for a traditional seaside holiday. You will be spoilt for choice once again. Notable sandy beaches to visit along the south coast are Bantham Beach which is also rather good for surfing and has a school on the beach, South Sands beach in Salcombe, Lannacombe Beach in Kingsbridge, Teignmouth Back Beach, Mill Bay in Salcombe again, Blackpool Sands, Broadsands Beach in Paignton, Babbacombe and Watcombe Beach in Torquay and of course Sandy Bay, the clue is in the name! The North Coast is equally impressive with Westward Ho!, Saunton Sands, Croyde Beach, Woolacombe, Grunta Beach and Greysands Beach with a couple again having surf schools for those wanting to learn while on holiday. Of course, there are many more beaches that we could have listed and as you travel further along the North Devon coast the landscape changes and offers some fantastic scenery, especially along the Lynton and Lynmouth area with the Valley of the Rocks. We have a wide choice of holiday properties in all these locations so if you have a favourite beach, we are sure to have a property to help you visit it.
By now you should have some idea of why a visit to Devon should be high on your list of destinations and know that whatever you need or requirements from a holiday cottage, Devon Holiday Cottages will be able to fulfil them. We look forward to welcoming you to Devon soon.
