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.

    Ref: 30740

    Lillian’s Cottage is a comfortable semi-detached cottage, suitable for two couples or a family. The cottage is in the heart of the beautiful Dartmoor village of Dunsford, and is ideal for year round holidays. A gate from the pavement leads into the walled, paved courtyard garden, ideal for outdoor dining. The living room has exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace, which still has the original bread-oven. Dunsford lies inside the Dartmoor National Park and many of its houses are of traditional cob and thatch. Here the River Teign emerges from its moorland course at Steps Bridge, ½ mile from the village, and flows from the thickly wooded Teign Valley. Upstream from Steps Bridge, the scenery is spectacular with Castle Drogo (National Trust) crowning the gorge above the renowned beauty spot of Fingle Bridge. To the west of Dunsford the road climbs up through woods to Moretonhampstead, 15 minutes, a small Dartmoor town and the open moor. Here there are several restaurants, shops and a small supermarket. Needless to say, the whole area is a walker’s and rider’s paradise. The village itself clusters around the ancient church of St. Mary, and in 2010 won the award for ’Best Kept Village’ in Devon. Dunsford has kept its village shop and Post Office and has a pub and a beautiful walled garden restaurant, where diners can sample tasty day-time meals and pre-book for an evening meal when customers may bring their own wine. The village garage still sells petrol! Lying off the Exeter to Moretonhampstead road, there is little through traffic allowing walkers and horse riders to enjoy the calm of high hedged Devon lanes. Guests will usually be able to park directly outside Lillian’s Cottage, but occasionally a few yards either up or down the road. Dunsford is a quiet village whose cottages were built in an era when transport was either horse drawn or on foot rather than wheels! Beach 15 miles. Shop and restaurant 50 yards, pub 40 yards.

    Ground floor: Living room with beams/dining room. Kitchen. Utility room. Separate toilet. First floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double (6ft), 1 twin. Bathroom with toilet. Shower room (no toilet).

    Ref: FHH

    "Views over bays and cliffs from a castle stronghold – a unique holiday opportunity . . ."

    Watermouth Castle offers a rare combination of opportunities – for not only do visitors have the chance to live in a castle, but they also enjoy unlimited, free entry to one of the West Country’s premier tourist attractions during their stay (please note that the park, castle and facilities are closed in winter as from November 2016). Within the splendid castle itself, there are six superb apartments, an indoor heated swimming pool, a museum, a choice of theme attractions, and some fascinating water displays. Outside, the castle’s 50-acre estate features wonderful landscaped gardens, with plenty of space for strolling and relaxing, and glorious woodland walks. There are ducks and waterfowl to admire on the lake outside the walls, and beautiful views from the castle over Watermouth Bay and its harbour, where there are slipway facilities for visitors’ boats, as well as moorings for larger craft (by arrangement with the harbourmaster).
    The castle is a true example of a Victorian folly, completed in the mid 19th-century by the Bassett family. Now extensively restored by the current owner, its self-contained holiday apartments are reached through an archway in the south court, where the indoor heated swimming pool is available exclusively to apartment residents. All of the properties have been decorated and furnished to a comfortable standard throughout, in keeping with the style and ambience of the Castle, and all feature four-poster, half tester or brass beds.
    A separate part of the castle, open to the public, contains the fascinating museum collections, including a Victorian kitchen, animated displays, mechanical musical instruments, a large model railway and a unique arcade of pier slot machines, all in working order. In the underground theatre is the Water Spectacular, reputedly one of the best fountain shows in the world, a thrilling mix of lights, music and water. Outside in the grounds are further family entertainments, including traditional rides and slides, fascinating water features, children’s play areas, a ‘Gnomeland’, themed crazy-golf, and much, much more all of which earned Watermouth Castle a place in the finals of the South West Tourism ‘Large Visitor Attraction Of The Year’ Award in 2005.
    Watermouth Castle enjoys an incomparable setting on rising ground, commanding views over the bays and cliffs of the magnificent coastline stretching away to the east. Take a woodland walk through the estate to the picturesque, award-winning village of Berrynarbor, or visit the coastal village of Combe Martin (less than 3 miles to the east) – famous not only for its sandy coves, inlets and majestic headlands but also as ‘the gateway to the Exmoor National Park’. Combe Martin offers a choice of shops and cafes, and one of Devon’s oldest inns! Ilfracombe is only a five minute drive away to the west, with a range of seaside attractions, good shops and a golf course, and visitors can enjoy miles of golden sand at nearby Woolacombe and Croyde Bay. Superb cliff-top scenery and beautiful wooded valleys make this one of North Devon’s most scenic areas – as well as a paradise for walkers. Shops 2 miles.
    Note: Music may filter into the pool area from the antique Mortier organ between 10am and 6pm.
