Find cottages in DevonVisit 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.

"Character farm cottages in glorious countryside above an unspoilt hidden valley...with all-weather leisure facilities"

Robin Hill Farm is set in 14 acres of beautiful rolling countryside in the North Devon biosphere. The six properties, converted from stone farm barns and buildings, are centred around the old cobbled farmyard. The location offers a peaceful and secluded setting away from the daily hustle and bustle, yet it is only 3 miles to shops, entertainment and the beach. Inside the holiday cottages are well furnished and provide a relaxing haven after a long day sightseeing, walking, cycling or on the beach. The heated indoor swimming pool room includes a hot tub and a stunning conservatory attached. From the conservatory and decking area guests can enjoy the beautiful views over the valley towards Exmoor, whilst drying off or enjoy a coffee or glass of wine no matter what the weather. There is a very well equipped games room for all ages and for big and little kids video games can be enjoyed on a 60in plasma screen.
Outside the grounds have been landscaped to create two play areas, one with ball games, the other with playhouse and climbing frame. A communal patio means that adults can relax whilst watching their children play. Guests can enjoy the farm’s 14 acres of land and woodland walk which are host to a variety of wildlife and wild flowers with lovely views of Jennetts Reservoir. Nearby there is plenty to keep visitors busy. Many quaint villages await discovery - the photogenic ‘chocolate box’ village of Clovelly being of particular note. Appledore offers all the olde worlde charm of a fishing village, famous for its arts, crafts and maritime heritage. Beach lovers will delight in the wide sandy beaches, the nearest being Westward Ho!. Walkers can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the coastal path, while the Tarka Trail traces the steps of Henry Williamson’s Tarka the Otter and provides miles of traffic-free cycling (and walking) - bikes can be stored securely or hired locally. Award-winning farm parks, The Milky Way and The Big Sheep, will fascinate the younger ones. Gardens within 30 minutes’ drive include RHS Rosemoor, Docton Mill and Tapeley Park. Several local pubs nearby, with the nearest in Littleham village serving real ale and home cooked food. Shops 3 miles, pub 1½ miles.

"Colourful gardens amidst acres of farmland – just a mile from South Devon’s golden sands . . ."

Just a mile inland from the beach and sea at Man Sands, these five cottages enjoy a gloriously secluded rural situation on a 47-acre working farm, yet are convenient for the delights of picturesque Kingswear (1½ miles) and historic Dartmouth. Imaginatively formed within a charming group of barns, they are set in superb landscaped shared gardens. An indoor heated swimming pool and a sauna have been created in a separate building, and a further barn offers facilities for table tennis, pool table, ‘fun’ netball and badminton. A spacious play area within a walled garden is equipped with swings, a sand pit, adventure playground, large outdoor trampoline (with safety netting), a large lawned area with raised decking, complete with garden furniture and views over the surrounding countryside; and here there is also an indoor playroom with ball pool, climbing frame and a range of children’s ride-on tractors and cars for outdoor use. The gardens are a riot of colour, with flower beds, tubs, hanging baskets and an intriguing network of brick paths, courtyards and paved terraces. Further afield the estate includes a well-stocked one-acre fishing lake (rods not supplied). Children are welcome to help feed the animals; and there are goats, ponies, kune kune pigs, sheep, lambs, rabbits and guinea pigs to make friends with. The taste of rural life at Nethway continues with walks through the fields.
The cottages themselves have been meticulously converted, with careful use of traditional stone and slate. All are tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, and comprehensively equipped. All of the properties have their own patios with furniture (Hyssop and Lovage Cottages have their own lawned garden), and all enjoy shared use of a separate barbecue area. They are ideal for holidays at any time of the year – all properties are cosily heated throughout and this region is especially beautiful in the quieter off-season months. For Christmas and New Year holidays, each cottage has a festively decorated Christmas tree and the roaring log fires in all living rooms are ideal for the Autumn and Winter months. This peninsula is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is renowned for its coastline, which offers coastal walks and a choice of footpaths leading to secluded beaches. The village of Kingswear itself is set on the Dart estuary opposite Dartmouth – which can be reached via ferry. Here you will find a wealth of things to do, including the Kingswear–Paignton steam railway, Paignton Zoo and Woodlands Leisure Park, to name but a few, and many Blue Flag beaches and hidden coves are within easy reach.

Sat on the edge of Dartmoor, this 150 year old barn conversion is attached to the owner’s home and is an ideal base for families, walkers, foodies, beach addicts and adventurers. With easy access to the A38, this cottage is perfect for day trips out exploring Dartmoor and the South Hams. Set in a very peaceful location, the property has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. Ashburton has plenty of independent shops to wander around including antiques, award-winning delis, pubs and fantastic restaurants. There are also events on throughout the year so it is worth checking what is on before you come. There is much to do locally with Buckfast Abbey 4 miles away and Totnes and Dartington Hall only 8 miles away. The Southwest Coast path is 14 miles away along with local beaches. Both Exeter with its stunning cathedral and Plymouth, with the National Marine Aquarium and Barbican are within easy driving distance, 25 miles. There are many activities available locally, including canoeing on the River Dart, high ropes, carriage driving courses, fishing, walking and the unusual activity of letter boxing. There are many exciting spots for bird watchers, and look out for deer and Dartmoor ponies close to the property. The extensive coastline of the southwest peninsula offers endless opportunities to enjoy watersports, surfing or just a day at the seaside. There is plenty to do locally for children and the young at heart, including the otter and butterfly sanctuary 1 mile, River Dart Country Park 1 mile, the rare breed petting farm 8 miles, Pennywell Farm 3 miles and Woodlands theme park 12 miles, Dartmoor Zoo, made famous by the film ’We bought a Zoo’, 20 miles to name but a few. The busy market town of Newton Abbot is close by and a visit to Widecombe-in-the-Moor is a must. There are many National Trust properties within driving distance.

"Character farm cottages in glorious countryside above an unspoilt hidden valley...with all-weather leisure facilities"

Robin Hill Farm is set in 14 acres of beautiful rolling countryside in the North Devon biosphere. The six properties, converted from stone farm barns and buildings, are centred around the old cobbled farmyard. The location offers a peaceful and secluded setting away from the daily hustle and bustle, yet it is only 3 miles to shops, entertainment and the beach. Inside the holiday cottages are well furnished and provide a relaxing haven after a long day sightseeing, walking, cycling or on the beach. The heated indoor swimming pool room includes a hot tub and a stunning conservatory attached. From the conservatory and decking area guests can enjoy the beautiful views over the valley towards Exmoor, whilst drying off or enjoy a coffee or glass of wine no matter what the weather. There is a very well equipped games room for all ages and for big and little kids video games can be enjoyed on a 60in plasma screen.
Outside the grounds have been landscaped to create two play areas, one with ball games, the other with playhouse and climbing frame. A communal patio means that adults can relax whilst watching their children play. Guests can enjoy the farm’s 14 acres of land and woodland walk which are host to a variety of wildlife and wild flowers with lovely views of Jennetts Reservoir. Nearby there is plenty to keep visitors busy. Many quaint villages await discovery - the photogenic ‘chocolate box’ village of Clovelly being of particular note. Appledore offers all the olde worlde charm of a fishing village, famous for its arts, crafts and maritime heritage. Beach lovers will delight in the wide sandy beaches, the nearest being Westward Ho!. Walkers can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the coastal path, while the Tarka Trail traces the steps of Henry Williamson’s Tarka the Otter and provides miles of traffic-free cycling (and walking) - bikes can be stored securely or hired locally. Award-winning farm parks, The Milky Way and The Big Sheep, will fascinate the younger ones. Gardens within 30 minutes’ drive include RHS Rosemoor, Docton Mill and Tapeley Park. Several local pubs nearby, with the nearest in Littleham village serving real ale and home cooked food. Shops 3 miles, pub 1½ miles.
