Devon

Devon''s status as ''The English Riviera'' is well earned and is testimony to the popularity of this holiday destination, which attracts thousands of visitors every year who come to enjoy its special charms.

The county is blessed with two coastlines which are dotted with picturesque fishing ports and mile after mile of clean sandy beaches. The interior consists of a striking contrast of dramatic moorland that includes the Dartmoor National Park and a patchwork of green leafy lanes that criss-cross the region.

Dartmoor actually has two national parks as well as five areas of outstanding natural beauty, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Geopark and Biosphere Reserve. It’s also famous as the location for Conan Doyle’s ‘Hound of the Baskervilles’. It has 368 square miles of windswept, dramatic and uncrowded moors to enjoy!

The English Riviera; Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, are a magnet for those looking for a seaside holiday with lots of attractions and activities for all ages. It also has a rich maritime history, plenty of sporting events and water sports activities.

South Devon is characterised by gentle rolling hills and a lovely coastline, offering easy walks, country pubs and great restaurants, while the northern coast has superb surfing beaches. Exmoor in north Devon is perfect for moorland walks, mountain biking and has wonderful natural beauty.

The many facets of Devon provide visitors with a wide choice of holiday options and lots of top quality visitor attractions and days out, such as the Dartmouth Steam Railway and The National Marine Aquarium; too many to mention here.

Of note is Woolacombe Beach, one of the jewels in Devon’s crown with three miles of golden sand of Blue Flag status and the Tarka Trail; its 30 miles forms a figure-of-eight and follows the path the brave otter takes in Henry Williamson’s beloved novel.

If you fancy walking on the wild side why not take a trip to one of Devon’s many animal attractions? The zoo at Paignton offers an array of exotic creatures and makes for a wonderful day out, while the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm is also very popular with families.

Devon offers a wealth of holiday opportunities so if you’re ready for a break take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Devon.

    Ref: W44004

    Set in a very quiet and rural location, midway between Totnes and Dartmouth, nestling in a secluded valley with beautiful views over green and rolling hills. Lower Tideford Farm is a peaceful little group of 5 holiday cottages on a small South Devon farm (refs W44003, W44004, W44005, W44006 and W44007). Once a working dairy farm with contented cows grazing on 170 acres of lush Devon pasture land. The original, beautiful stone barns set around a central courtyard have now been converted into lovely holiday cottages set down a long private drive and surrounded by fields. The Dartmouth cottage was the original milking parlour, and the kitchen was used for cooling and storing milk. The upper storey of The Salcombe cottage was a threshing barn, some of the machinery, in particular the old cogs and wheels, are still there as original features, and these can be seen in the kitchen. They were powered from outside by a traction engine in days gone by. This is a super location for a holiday, whether you may fancy just relaxing and reading a book or taking in the breathtaking views across the valley or perhaps trying your hand at some of the ball games on offer. With shared grounds of 30 acres, sitting-out areas and garden furniture, a fenced stream and a pond lower down in the valley, Lower Tideford Farm is ideal for families who are looking for a perfect place in which to relax and unwind. Historic Dartmouth is 4 miles away with the spectacular River Dart, the historic towns of Totnes, Kingsbridge and Salcombe, all on your doorstep. Shop 5 miles, pub ½ mile and restaurant 2 miles.
