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.

Millstones Ref: E2212

The pretty stone cottages at Northway are set in 5 acres of grounds within half a mile of the dramatic coastal footpath above Peppercombe’s National Trust shingle beach and within 5 miles of the glorious sandy beach at Westward Ho! Most of the cottages open off a delightful flower filled courtyard, whilst some look out towards the sea. All of the cottages are well furnished and equipped and some have their own garden. Visitors enjoy use of a superb leisure complex housing an indoor heated swimming pool and spa with full changing and shower facilities (open 9:00am-7:30pm), a fitness area and games room with table football (coin-operated), pool table, table tennis and toddlers play area. For children, there is a well-equipped adventure play area and an area for ball games, and they will surely enjoy stroking the tame rabbits and goats. Christmas decorations, a real tree and champagne are supplied for Christmas bookings. This is a wonderful walking area, both on the coast and along the nearby Tarka Trail. From the lane, a rough track (not suitable for toddlers or the infirm) leads down to the coastal path from where there are magnificent views across Bideford Bay towards Clovelly and the beaches of Devon’s northern coastline. There is plenty to see and do nearby – The Big Sheep and Milky Way, the new Atlantic Village, and the picture postcard village of Clovelly (6 miles) are just some of the attractions.

Orchard House Ref: HDDK

Orchard House is a stunning, 18th-century converted barn which has been beautifully furnished throughout and offers spacious, detached holiday accommodation on the breathtaking North Devon Coast. A 40-minute walk across farmland leads to a little known, secluded, pebble and sandy beach - Portledge beach (access only available from 2nd Feb - 31st August) - which is a wonderful sun trap and well off the tourist map, making it usually very quiet even on the busiest summer day. The spectacular South West Coastal Path has a chain of magnificent cliffs and stretches along the Heritage Coast to Hartland Point. Retaining many original features - including exposed timber roof trusses, vaulted ceilings and natural stone – the property also benefits from modern design details. The four spacious double bedrooms are sumptuously furnished with designer fabrics, each one themed: French-style, chunky rustic Mexican-style, rich mahogany, and one with contemporary nickel bedstead. To the front of Orchard House is an enclosed garden and patio, with uninterrupted country views across the fields and valley. The long stone patio area extends the entire length of the barn, with huge patio table and chairs seating 12. Guests are free to explore the surrounding 20 acres of woodland and pasture (with sheep). The famous surfing beaches of Westward Ho! (4 miles) and Bude are an easy drive or hire a bike and explore the nearby Tarka Trail. Sailing, water-skiing, golf and riding are available locally. There are numerous NT properties in the area, as well as the RHS gardens at Rosemoor and Docton Mill. Hartland Abbey is well worth a visit and the charming village of Clovelly, just 6 miles away, is one of Britain’s showpieces, with whitewashed houses tumbling down to a little harbour. The Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre, which includes a large supermarket, is just 2 miles.

Spacious, modern open-plan living/dining room with central wood-burning stove, and 50in plasma TV. Well-equipped kitchen with large range, granite work tops and central breakfast bar. Utility/toilet/boot room. Study with sofa-bed (for +2) and 40in plasma TV. Entrance hall/cloakroom. First floor: Four double bedrooms each with 5ft bed and en-suite shower room with toilet.
