The second largest county in the UK, Devon is an area of great diversity - from the ancient, upland landscapes of Dartmoor & Exmoor to its stunning coastlines, both north and south. A stay in one of our coastal cottages in South Devon for instance, will show you a very different side to the county from a walking and fishing holiday in one of our Dartmoor cottages. Each part of Devon has something different to offer and our holiday cottages in Devon will enable you to experience the huge variety this county has to offer.
Devon’s contrasting coastline is an outstanding feature. If you’re staying in one of cottages along the East Devon coast you’ll find the red sandstone cliffs of Sidmouth, the fishing harbours of Beer and Seaton and the beautiful Exe Estuary reaching the sea at Exmouth. South Devon’s “English Riviera” is well known for its micro-climate, making the resorts of Torbay ever popular for a seaside holiday. The stretch of coastline between Dartmouth and Plymouth – the South Hams – is hard to match for its untamed beauty; dramatic, granite headlands offer protection for sheltered coves and sailing and fishing harbours such as Salcombe, Newton Ferrers and Hope Cove. On the North Devon coast, exposed to the Atlantic are the vast sandy beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe, a mecca for surfers.
The central part of Devon is made up of The Dartmoor National Park, which has all manner of outdoor activities - walking, climbing, kayaking, trekking, fishing - to offer visitors staying at one of our Devon holiday cottages. Dartmoor is a remarkable piece of natural geology with dramatic granite outcrops (tors), river gorges, ancient standing stones, hut circles and clapper bridges. Dartmoor has, of course, been made famous through Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories, Agatha Christie’s novels and more recently by the book/play/film sensation War Horse.
If you venture to the north of the county on the border with Somerset, you’ll find Exmoor, the smallest of England’s national parks. With its heather-covered moorland and wooded river valleys that push right up to the sea, Exmoor remains completely unspoilt and offers much to its visitors – the sight of Exmoor ponies and native red deer, a footpath system totalling 600 miles, second to none and good trout and salmon fishing in its rivers. There are also some great pubs in the small villages scattered across the moor, serving a fine selection of real ales and high quality food. Right on the Bristol Channel coast, Woody Bay, Lynton and Lynmouth are well worth a visit.
Devon also boasts two historic cities, Exeter with its magnificent cathedral and Plymouth with its many maritime connections. Plymouth’s attractions include the National Marine Aquarium, The Barbican (Mayflower Steps), from where the Pilgrim Fathers sailed to the New World and Plymouth Hoe, where Devon’s greatest hero, Sir Francis Drake played his famous game of bowls before sailing out to engage with the Spanish Armada. The cathedral city of Exeter dates back to Roman times and combines antiquity with an excellent, extensively revamped and pedestrianised shopping centre.
With Devon cottages in a number of different locations across the county, we can offer you a stay amongst some stunning landscapes. Whether you’re eager to explore the coast, the countryside, or Devon’s historic cities, you can do just that whilst staying in one of our specially selected properties.
