Find cottages in 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.

    "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.

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.

Offering holiday makers the opportunity to enjoy a peaceful holiday in Devon’s glorious countryside, while also supporting injured fire fighters across the UK, Harcombe House is just 12 miles south of the historic city of Exeter.

    Harcombe House provides the ideal environment for family holidays, friends to get together, or for peace and quiet. Each bungalow is detached and has been decorated and furnished to a good standard, and has amazing views over the countryside. Each bungalow has a patio with furniture. There is an indoor heated swimming pool which is shared with other guests, a children’s play area, tennis court and plenty of walks from your front door. There is also a bar on-site, which is open in the evening.

    Holiday at Harcombe House and you’ll be supporting the work of The Fire Fighters Charity, providing life enhancing rehabilitation services to fire fighters across the UK.

    The properties are situated in an ideal location for visiting all that Devon has to offer, including Dartmoor National Park; the landscape is as dramatic as its weather, from its striking granite tors, to steep wooded river valleys and from swathes of heather-covered moorland, to tucked away villages and hamlets. Whether you want a quiet, gentle stroll, or an exhilarating mountain biking experience, there’s something for you at Haldon Forest Park, 3500 acres of woodland which is just 15 minutes from Harcombe House.

    There are many cycle trails, including a great all-ability trail, with fun features for children with regular resting points that take in some stunning views over Exeter and Dartmoor. Or, if you like walking there are many different walks including The Butterfly Trail, which is a circular walk which, in places, gives you stunning views across the forest and over the Teign Valley.

    Visit Go Ape, a forest adventure park with zip wires, Tarzan swings and a variety of crossings. Crealy Adventure Park, a great day out for the children, is also close by. Many sandy beaches can be found nearby, or take a trip further afield and visit the historic city of Exeter, with its canals, shops and cafes. Plymouth has the Sea Life Centre, Barbican waterfront and Plymouth Hoe, a large, south-facing open public space. East Devon has dramatic coastlines and is excellent for walking the coastal path, where you can visit Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth and Seaton. There are many National Trust properties all close by and worth visiting. The English Riviera is also on your doorstep, with sandy beaches, steam railway, zoo, theatres and boat trips.
