Devon Holiday Cottages

Devon Holiday Cottages In comparison to many other counties across England, Devon is one of the most sparsely populated areas in the UK. Predominantly rural with rolling hills gracing a majority of its land, Devonshire (as it was historically known) is most popular for Dartmoor and its quiet seaside villages and towns.

Due to its naturally quiet atmosphere and mild climate, Devon is one of the most idyllic settings for a cottage holiday giving you that much needed rural escape away from the noise of urban areas. Couple that with the popular local food, drink and the clean fresh air, you're definitely going to have the most relaxing holiday wherever in the county you stay!

Of course any visit to Devon wouldn’t be complete without seeing the incredible sites that is Dartmoor National Park. Over 360 square miles of moorland littered with rocky outcrops called Tors which are all reachable (although the climbs to them vary considerably in their difficulty!) alongside some stunning attractions along the way including pubs, cafes and historic sites.

One of the more popular destinations is Badger’s Holt at Dartmeet which is worth a visit. You can enjoy some rock-hopping on the huge boulders in the shallow river and end the day with one of the best cream teas in the county (according to us anyway!). Even better, purchase some homemade scones to take back with you to enjoy in the evening at your holiday cottage.

Pick any of our self-catering holiday cottages and you’ll not be far away from any of the action. There’s also Kent’s Caverns which takes you on a cave exploration to see evidence of Devon's ancestors dating back 30-40,000 years. Guided tours and a fascinating walk around the expansive caverns makes a wonderful day out, especially for children for whom it will be both educational and a thrill!

If scenery is your thing Cheddar Gorge is also a fantastic destination. A stone’s throw away in neighbouring Somerset, the gorges are breath taking and unlike anything else you’ll see in terms of scenery in the south of England. Exeter, Torquay and Exmouth are also towns to take a look around. You'll find a great selection of shops, restaurants and bars and you can pay a visit to the National Aquarium at Plymouth.

Whatever you choose to do you’ll find your stay an incredibly enjoyable one. Now you can choose a relaxing hand-picked self-catering holiday cottage in Devon to act as your home for the stay and relax in the evenings after a busy day out seeing the sites!
