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.

    With so much to offer, this stunning property makes a superb holiday base - not just for the summer holidays, but for celebrating special family occasions like birthdays and anniversaries throughout the year. Set in a striking location with panoramic far reaching views across the sea for almost 50 miles, from the English Riviera in Devon to Lyme Bay in Dorset on the horizon. Cliff Lodge boasts extensive, spacious accommodation for families of all ages with superb private and exclusive leisure facilities. Most of the bedrooms are en-suite and have panoramic sea views stretching far across the water - and on a fine day, Lyme Bay and Portland can be clearly seen. Boasting an indoor heated swimming pool, together with a pine sauna and shower room, there is also an outdoor 8-seater hot tub set on the decked area to the side of the swimming pool for guests to enjoy. Other features of the property include a purpose-built detached games room which contains a full-size snooker table, sofas, 50” plasma screen TV, jukebox and bar facilities. This is a great area where teenagers can amuse themselves, or where the whole family can spend time and have fun together - with the bar stocked up, and the jukebox turned on, whole evenings can be whiled away happily. A good-sized, well-stocked garden and an additional one acre of fields provide excellent outside areas for children to play in.

    "Enjoy the ‘cream’ of Devon at one of the eleven cottages on the Ashcombe Estate..."

    Situated in the heart of rolling Devon countryside, the privately owned Ashcombe country estate nestles in a peaceful valley close to the sandy beaches of Dawlish and Torquay. Enjoy walking on the estate’s hills and woodlands, swim in the heated indoor swimming pool, or relax in the sauna at Woodhouse Farm while children play in the indoor and outdoor playgrounds. The owners have made a great effort to ensure that the cottages are both comfortable and practical while the location could not be better for a wide range of Devon attractions.
    It might be a family holiday or big reunion, a special celebration, a fun business get-together, a group trip, or a relaxing weekend to recharge your batteries; whatever the reason the facilities are designed to be perfect for winter and summer holidays and the secrets of the Ashcombe cottages’ appeal are presentation, comfort and convenience. The cottages are maintained to very high standards. All have leather sofas, flatscreen digital TVs and very comfortable mattresses - the owners consider a good night’s sleep the most important thing! The cottages either have Italian tiled floors or wooden floors, and some still retain many original features including oak beamed ceilings. The properties cater for almost any party size, sleeping from 4 to 28 people and are all rated either 4 or 5 stars. Ashcombe’s larger cottages provide great value for money for visitors sharing with their friends and families. For meals, an in-house chef can be booked to come and do the hard work (arranged direct with the owner). The heated indoor swimming pool (1 mile away) is perfect for any rainy days and keep the children happy. Cider Barn sleeping 16 and Nut Tree Farm sleeping 28, which are both 5 star rated, also have outdoor swimming pools for the summer.
    For those wishing to enjoy a more adrenaline-charged holiday, the brilliant Ashcombe outdoor activity centre (at extra cost) offers quad bike safaris, clay pigeon shooting, archery, paintballing and more and is located just under a mile down the lane and is available for those 14 years and over. At the end of the day the Ashcombe Village Club provides cheap beer and a cheerful atmosphere.

    Slightly further afield, East Cornwall and the Eden Project are within an hour’s drive. Take a walk along the South West Coast Path which runs along the entire length of the Jurassic Coast and offers the walker stunning views, with a bird’s eye view of many coastal features. From the coast path you can experience the drama of sheer cliff faces, take in the wonderful towns of Beer, the ‘picture postcard’ fishing village, or Budleigh Salterton. This tranquil and historic seaside town nestles on the edge of a pebble beach beneath spectacular red cliffs, made famous by literary giants such as Noel Coward, P.G. Wodehouse and Anthony Trollope. Visit Seaton with its famous trams or Sidmouth which still has a unique charm and has captivated thousands of holidaymakers. Beautiful gardens, leisurely walks, Regency history, clean beaches and friendly shops – it is all here in this lovely seaside town.

    "Enjoy the ‘cream’ of Devon at one of the eleven cottages on the Ashcombe Estate..."

    Situated in the heart of rolling Devon countryside, the privately owned Ashcombe country estate nestles in a peaceful valley close to the sandy beaches of Dawlish and Torquay. Enjoy walking on the estate’s hills and woodlands, swim in the heated indoor swimming pool, or relax in the sauna at Woodhouse Farm while children play in the indoor and outdoor playgrounds. The owners have made a great effort to ensure that the cottages are both comfortable and practical while the location could not be better for a wide range of Devon attractions.
    It might be a family holiday or big reunion, a special celebration, a fun business get-together, a group trip, or a relaxing weekend to recharge your batteries; whatever the reason the facilities are designed to be perfect for winter and summer holidays and the secrets of the Ashcombe cottages’ appeal are presentation, comfort and convenience. The cottages are maintained to very high standards. All have leather sofas, flatscreen digital TVs and very comfortable mattresses - the owners consider a good night’s sleep the most important thing! The cottages either have Italian tiled floors or wooden floors, and some still retain many original features including oak beamed ceilings. The properties cater for almost any party size, sleeping from 4 to 28 people and are all rated either 4 or 5 stars. Ashcombe’s larger cottages provide great value for money for visitors sharing with their friends and families. For meals, an in-house chef can be booked to come and do the hard work (arranged direct with the owner). The heated indoor swimming pool (1 mile away) is perfect for any rainy days and keep the children happy. Cider Barn sleeping 16 and Nut Tree Farm sleeping 28, which are both 5 star rated, also have outdoor swimming pools for the summer.
    For those wishing to enjoy a more adrenaline-charged holiday, the brilliant Ashcombe outdoor activity centre (at extra cost) offers quad bike safaris, clay pigeon shooting, archery, paintballing and more and is located just under a mile down the lane and is available for those 14 years and over. At the end of the day the Ashcombe Village Club provides cheap beer and a cheerful atmosphere.
    Both Dartmoor National Park and the historic city of Exeter are only 20 minutes’ drive away while the famous South Devon Coast, with wonderful sandy beaches, is barely 3 miles. Exeter and Newton Abbot Racecourses, several golf courses, loads of family theme parks, zoos, sailing and fishing are all within easy reach, not to mention the many excellent pubs and restaurants that Devon is famous for. The wild beauty of Dartmoor is 20 minutes away with its abundance of wildlife and dramatic landscapes. Numerous National Trust properties are close by including Agatha Christie’s Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with bustling boat harbour, castle, contemporary art galleries and boutiques. Salcombe with its beaches, sailing and water sports is also easily accessible, as well as Blackpool Sands, Slapton and picturesque Dittisham with its annual crab catching competition.

    Slightly further afield, East Cornwall and the Eden Project are within an hour’s drive. Take a walk along the South West Coast Path which runs along the entire length of the Jurassic Coast and offers the walker stunning views, with a bird’s eye view of many coastal features. From the coast path you can experience the drama of sheer cliff faces, take in the wonderful towns of Beer, the ‘picture postcard’ fishing village, or Budleigh Salterton. This tranquil and historic seaside town nestles on the edge of a pebble beach beneath spectacular red cliffs, made famous by literary giants such as Noel Coward, P.G. Wodehouse and Anthony Trollope. Visit Seaton with its famous trams or Sidmouth which still has a unique charm and has captivated thousands of holidaymakers. Beautiful gardens, leisurely walks, Regency history, clean beaches and friendly shops – it is all here in this lovely seaside town. All in all Ashcombe is an excellent base to explore, experience and enjoy ‘The Cream of Devon’. Main shops 3 miles.

    Pamflete House is an attractive, detached Georgian farmhouse near the mouth of the Erme Estuary, which was enlarged to accommodate John Crocker Bulteel’s large family and staff when he left Flete in 1870. It now provides a luxurious, well-equipped private house, which is available fully or partially staffed for family holidays and celebrations, as well as larger events such as weddings. The entrance sweep of Pamflete House is ideally suited for a marquee reception for up to 120 guests, with a glorious view up the valley. The house is a 2-minute drive from Pamflete Beach, which is the most idyllic setting for wedding photographs with a difference. Wedding packages can be enquired about at the estate office on site. This spacious country residence is a Grade II listed house situated in a heritage location, perfect for all types of celebrations, from christenings, birthdays, anniversaries and reunions, to country house parties and relaxed family holidays.
    The Flete Estate is a privately owned estate of over 5000 acres of farmland, woodlands, pastures, amenity and agricultural land leading to the Erme Estuary coastline and wide sandy beaches. Set in the beautiful coastal South Hams area of Devon, this unspoilt stretch of coastline, with its beaches, streams and rock pools, is one of the few to remain in private ownership. Guests can make use of a small, private path that drops down from the old carriage drive through the woods to Pamflete Beach, one of the Estate’s more secluded beaches. This sheltered stretch of sand makes the perfect summer barbecue spot, as well as being a favourite site for crabbing.
    Mothecombe’s sandy beach is at the mouth of the Erme Estuary. It is owned and maintained by the Flete Estate and has remained completely unspoilt, with the only buildings being an old boathouse and the lime kiln. With its soft golden sand, a little stream, rock pools and small secluded coves revealed at low tide, the beach slopes gently into the sea. The coastal paths leading from Mothecombe Beach have far reaching views over beaches and cliffs, including a tidal bathing pool, smugglers cave and secluded beaches.
    The surrounding location is both idyllic and famous. The first film shot on location on the Flete Estate was ‘International Velvet’ in 1978, starring Tatum O’Neal, Christopher Plummer, Anthony Hopkins and Nanette Newman, and featured Mothecombe Beach and the nearby village of Holbeton. The Flete Estate will probably be remembered most in Ang Lee’s ‘Sense and Sensibility’, filmed in 1995 with an all-star cast, including Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman. The television adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s ‘Rebecca’ was filmed in 1997. The Estate has been the backdrop of many other films and television series, including ‘Hornblower’ in 1997, episodes of ‘Poirot’ and ‘Jonathan Creek’ to name but a few. Beach ¼ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
