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.

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."

Mrs Zoe Wilson Young - verified booking

"We stayed in the property for two weeks between 4th and 18th August with our two children aged almost 4 and almost 2. The cottage was extremely comfortable and the garden is lovely. We enjoyed sitting out in the evenings, listening to the birdsong and watching the sunset. The owner lives next door and was very pleasant. Most of the time we had complete privacy within the cottage which is blissfully quiet, especially at night. The location of the property couldn't have been better. It was a five minute drive from Arlington Court (National Trust) and Exmoor Zoo - both lovely days out. It was a short drive to Combe Martin, Lynton and Lynmouth, Ilfracombe, Woolacombe Beach, the middle of Exmoor. For somewhere very comfortable within easy reach of many attractions of north Devon and Exmoor, we highly recommend this cottage."

Mr Graham Vale - verified booking

"This was an excellent cottage, practically brand-new. Great location and the cottage has everything that you need and was spotlessly clean. Wi-Fi was excellent and we knew about lack of phone signal in advance, which was no problem. Nice little touches from Dominic such as umbrella, torch and stuff for the dog. Also, good commitment to recycling and environment. You can walk to Hunters Inn although the walk back to the cottage is quite strenuous. All in all, highly recommended."

Mrs L Morcombe - verified booking

"The property was immaculate and beautifully clean when we arrived. It was cosy, warm and very welcoming. The beds were comfy and the bedding was beautiful. The owner welcomed us on arrival and provided tea, milk, orange juice and biscuits for our immediate use after our journey. A very thoughtful touch and much appreciated. We had a most enjoyable and restful stay. Thank you all!"

Mrs G Goodall - verified booking

"This is one of the nicest properties we have stopped in. We were so impressed with the comprehensive selection and quality of the kitchen equipment. Such a comfortable bright airy property with wonderful views and so handy for the lovely Instow Beach. We would not hesitate stopping here again, it was first class."
