Holiday Cottages in Devon

“I have never before been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty”. These are the words of Steven Spielberg when asked what he thought of Devon. And frankly, we couldn’t agree more.

A tropical paradise nestled in the South West of England, Devon is a diverse land of silken beaches and majestic moors, of bustling town centres and quaint historic homes. It’s a place where fresh sea breezes whistle through craggy cliffs and turquoise waves lap against golden sands. It’s a place where award-winning chefs pluck crops from wild, windswept moors and serve up some of the most exquisite food this country has ever seen. It’s the perfect place, we think you’ll agree, for an unforgettable cottage getaway.

Two delightfully different coastlines

North and South Devon are both home to their own gorgeous coastlines, each offering its unique version of beachside bliss. North Devon faces the Atlantic, providing a rich and wild coast. Foamy blue waves crash against rugged rocks, and a world of adrenaline and watersports thrives.

Down south, Devon faces the calmer English channel, where high and mighty cliffs peer down on 120 miles of rugged coast and over 50 tranquil beaches. Here, you’ll find soft waves lapping against golden sand, and the perfect place to lie beneath the Summer sun.

The Jurassic Coast is Britain's most ancient attraction

To the east of Devon’s south coast, lies its most magnificent attraction. On the surface, the Jurassic Coast is 95 miles of stunning scenery. Some of the best walks in England snake by its crystal waters, beneath its high and rugged cliffs, and along its lush, green grassland. But to those who know what they’re looking for, something even more special hides inside.

Wander the Jurassic Coast with a guidebook, and you’ll be able to hear the story these incredible cliffs tell. Standing alongside the Great Barrier Reef as a World Heritage Site of ‘outstanding international importance’, the Jurassic Coast is a readable record of 185 million years of history on earth. A wander down the coast, finding fossils and spotting rock formations, is a wander back to an era almost 1,000 times older than humanity itself.

The best beach in Britain

Devon is home to over a hundred beautiful beaches, and with some of the highest temperatures and lowest rainfall in the UK, it also has the perfect weather to make the most of them.

Each of one of its stunning sandy stretches is a golden paradise, but one somehow manages to rise above the rest. Sat a short drive from Pickwell, Woolacombe Beach is maybe the most highly decorated beach in Britain. As well as boasting numerous awards for cleanliness, popularity, and all-round magnificence, in 2015 this 3-mile swathe of silken sand was voted the best beach in the UK, the fourth-best in Europe and 13th best in the whole world!

The South West’s greatest green spaces

The only thing Devon may do better than stunning stretches of sand is gorgeous green spaces. Home to the only two national parks in the South West, family holidays will have no shortage of outdoor adventures to choose from.

Dartmoor National Park, the larger of the two, is a whirlwind of granite hilltops and gloriously bright wildflowers. Between the plush, vibrant landscape, lie some incredible archaeological attractions. Two of the most fascinating, are RAF Harrowbeer, a WWII aircraft base constructed using rubble from the Plymouth blitz, and Spinsters rock, an ancient tomb dating back over six millennia, to around 4,000 BC.

Stretching between Devon and Somerset, Exmoor National Park is a mystic landscape of moorland, woodland, and fascinating legend. The misty moors are the alleged home of the ‘Beast of Exmoor’, the south west’s answer to Nessie. Whether you believe in the giant cat or not, an afternoon spent scouring the Exmoor moors in search of it is sure to be an enjoyable one.

Five official areas of outstanding natural beauty

As if being home to one of the most incredible archaeological attractions on the planet wasn’t enough, Devon almost boasts a staggering five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. All in all, the South West county is home to nearly 500 square miles of officially recognised magnificence, more than almost anywhere else in England.

The Blackdown Hills, the largest of the five areas, is 143 square miles of picture-postcard potential. Indulge in one of the many walking routes the hills offer, and you’ll find rugged woodland kissed apart by crystal rivers, and rolling countryside, unravelling far further than the eye can see.

Incredible Architecture

While stunning scenery tends to steal the show down in the South West, Devon is also home to some exceptional architecture. Killerton Estate is often cited as the National Trust’s most beautiful estate, while the enchanting Powderham Castle is the definition of a fairytale mansion.

The most incredible building in the county, however, has to be Exeter Cathedral. Sat one minute’s walk from the town centre and dating back almost a millennia, this mighty gothic structure is one of the most jaw-dropping buildings in England. Its vast vaulted ceilings and decadent stained glass windows are an example of just how much devotion, skill and creativity it is possible for people to possess.

A haven for food-lovers

While Devon’s rolling hills, wild moors and lush green pastures are certainly a sight to behold, don’t forget, they’re a lot more than just a pretty face. The rich, fertile land of the South West is ideal for growing incredible cooking ingredients, and over the years its incredible potential attracted some of the best chefs in England.

Today, Devon has a reputation as one of the premier food spots in the country. The South West spot boasts everything from award-winning chilli farms to Michelin star eateries, quaint tea rooms to rustic village taverns. While no trip to Devon is complete without a traditional cream tea, we also suggest checking out some of their more formal, fine dining spots. Plymouth alone is home to celebrity-run restaurants from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, James and Chris Tanner, Gary Rhodes, Mitch Tonks and Anton Piotrowski.

Book the best possible Devon holiday cottage

From friends holidays to family-friendly adventures, month-long travels to short breaks, open-plan apartments to quaint and cosy cottages - Devon has it all. To help make sure your holidays are as perfect as possible, we’ll make sure you book the cottage that’s right for you.

Don’t want to leave your four-legged friend at home? Have a look at Devon’s dog-friendly cottages. Choose from an incredible collection of luxury or extra-large holiday homes, or perhaps peruse properties with a pool or a decedent hot tub. If you do love to be beside the seaside, check out cottages on the coast, or maybe beside the beach.

Andrea - verified booking

"Firstly I would say that the "cottage" was clean and tidy, however our initial and lasting impression was that it was incredibly small and dark. In effect it was not a cottage but a room with a mezzinine floor. The only direct light and ventilation into the lower level was from the front door and if that was open we could hear every word from the neighbour. It's description as a one bedroom property is inaccurate, the bed is on a mezzinine. Open plan is also stretching the point as it is basically a studio, with the daytime facilities cramped into an approximately 13 x 13 foot square space. The only window that could be opened was behind the bed, as the one above the front day was too far from the mezzinine bannister to reach. The view from the door was of a six foot fence and the owners property beyond. The description states "These properties are are situated in 10½ acres of unspoilt natural grounds on the edge of Dartmoor" but there were no instructions about how to access it. There was not even information on where the local supermarket was. The photos on the web site gave the impression of light and space, we felt so claustrophobic that we had to leave after two nights/one day of our one week holiday. The only communication from the owner/staff was when we were leaving despite my trying to make contact during our very short stay. If what you want is just a base from which to explore this may be the place for you but we wanted to relax within the "cottage" surrounds as well and this was not possible."

"From the moment we arrived it was a Wow! The warm welcome we received together with the high quality Barn conversion 'reveal' plus the tranquil setting and stunning Garden, all exceeded our expectations. The Barn is much more luxurious, spacious and quieter than we could have imagined or hoped for - extremely well appointed with every conceivable item for a comfortable stay thought of. Early mornings and evenings do get rather chilly so the having the underfloor heating together with it's generous overlapping time settings meant we never felt cold when we got up or before we lit the Wood burner as Sunset. Fresh Farm Eggs, milk and other essentials plus a generous sized free basket of logs and even fire lighters and matches all ensured a relaxed start to our break. The highly experienced owners are always discretely available next door in their co-located cottage, so on the rare occasion when you do need something it's sorted. Outside the control of the owners but nevertheless important I did feel I had to mark local amenities down to a 6 out of 10 as there's no local within walking distance since the Stockland Pub closed down in recent years. Not a major problem as there are two others within a short driving distance and of course there's always the possibility of pre-ordering a shopping delivery from one of the supermarkets amply dotted around the not-too-distant main towns. Overall a superb location and stay for walking or just totally chilling out in the peace and quiet."

"Loads of parking space and we got a lovely warm welcome with thoughtful touches thrown-in for the weary traveller to enjoy! The cottage itself is just perfect, with views from the living room across a beautiful valley and a kitchen that was the social hub - big table for eight and great cooking facilities, utensils and white goods all very useful. There's a cupboards stocked with family games, jigsaws and a library too for those wet and windy "stay at home and chill" days. If that isn't enough, the Games Room has pool, table tennis, skittles, darts, bar skittles to bring out the competitive side of everyone in a fun environment.The medium sized garden was secure and big enough for our Great Dane to enjoy, the living room has very comfy leather sofas and a decent sized smart telly. Broadband was good but struggled with more than a couple of devices at a time, and thankfully for the work-weary the mobile service (on Vodaphone) was able to handle texts but voice calls in the garden only.The bedrooms were airy and very comfortable, well appointed with all three showers piping hot and great flow rate. We did a wash in the utility room and hung out to dry on our own washing on the rotary washing line."

"This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The owner is friendly and helpful. If you want perfection in terms of power showers and up to date kitchenware this cottage is not for you. However, if you want lots of lovely thoughtful touches like flowers, cake, jam and little thoughtful touches such as tissues and excellent storage in the bathroom, bedroom, sitting room and kitchen you will love it. We found it more comfortable than other more newly modernised cottages because the small details like good lighting by the bed and convenient power sockets added to our comfort. There is no specific garden area designated to the cottage, but our dog was able to go out into the garden alone without mishap. The garden is a delight. In March the wild primroses and clusters of daffodils cheered us up and the frequent visits from garden birds added to our enjoyment.The sea view is obscured by trees, but without that shelter the garden would not be possible. The views over the countryside around the cottage are stunning."

"We had an amazing time here. There was 2 of us staying but we both felt it would be a great place for a few more friends or family. House has a beautiful finish and the master bedroom view is so special. The kitchen is really well equipped (the knives could be sharper), a gas BBQ available, lots of kindling and wood, two dining tables and outdoor seating. Right on the Tarka trail were we hired bikes nearby and had some brilliant lunches out cycling. so quiet but walk-able and quick drive to supermarkets, takeaways and nice local pasty shop. (we noticed local amenities marked lower in other reviews but cannot think what else needed unless a corner shop within a 5-10min walk)Mark was so helpful when we had any questions. We found Dragon Archery approx 30 mins drive away and what a Gem that was too - I cannot wait to comeback with from friends to Deep Barn and go back to the archery! Thank you so much."
