Devon

Devon quite rightly deserves its status as one of the most beautiful counties in England. Beautiful coastline, rolling countryside and pretty villages all add up to one of the most popular holiday destinations in the country. Thousands flock here for holidays, renting country cottages in Devon is a great way to unwind and make the most of everything that the county has to offer.

One of the main attractions of Devon is the coastline, particularly for those who are holidaying as a family. Miles of sandy beaches beckon as kids just want to let off steam. Those who want to venture inland will find plenty of little villages and towns to explore as well as the Dartmoor National Park. Rural cottages in Devon will bring you close to the national park – the perfect place for hiking.

You may have heard the phrase ‘the English Riviera’ before. It refers to the seaside towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay, which offer a range of traditional seaside activities for families. Enjoy picnics on the beach, swimming, surfing and evenings in the amusement arcades or fish and chip suppers.

Another destination that makes an ideal seaside holiday is Woolacombe. Visitors can enjoy around three miles of sandy beaches here even when they choose countryside cottages in Devon because it is still possible to enjoy a rural setting but be within easy reach of the beach. Those who are feeling a little more active could take on the Tarka trail, named after the otter in the famous novel, but the 30 mile trail is not for the faint-hearted.

Water sports are a big draw for visitors to Devon so consider a trip to Dartmouth or Teignmouth if you want to give it a go. Sailing, wind surfing and surfing are all options and are ideal for the active family looking to create their own adventure holiday. However, some holiday makers will want to do a little souvenir hunting while they are in the county and there is no shortage of great shops for a little retail therapy. Salcombe and Totnes are favoured by both locals and tourists alike with the former known for stylish boutiques and the latter filled with unique independent stores.

Renting country cottages in Devon also means that you are within easy reach of Cornwall and Dorset too, so why not take a look at accommodation there. This is a part of the world that is guaranteed not to disappoint.
