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.

Peakaboo Ref: HMMB

Peakaboo is a large detached house (originally a pair of cottages) situated on Peak Hill, overlooking Sidmouth, with extensive sea and cliff views. It has a steep parking area and its own 2½-acre private woodland behind the property, with cliff top paths all adjoining National Trust land in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are also stunning views of cliffs and the sea from the octagonal deck. Peakaboo is only a 5-minute drive from Sidmouth and all its amenities; it has been decorated and furnished to a high standard and makes an ideal holiday base for touring this fantastic part of Devon. There are many NT properties to visit including Bicton Park, whilst a trip to Crealy Adventure Park (close to Exeter) will be greatly enjoyed by children. For walkers, the coastal path to Branscombe, Beer and Seaton is fantastic and other places of interest include the Donkey Sanctuary near Seaton (5 miles) as well as Seaton Tramway. There are many activities to enjoy such as windsurfing, sailing, walking, bird-watching, golf and tennis, to name but a few.
The historic city of Exeter is 20 miles with its stunning cathedral and many shops. Slightly further afield lies the rugged wilderness and beauty of Dartmoor National Park, where both experienced and novice walkers can enjoy the stunning scenery. Visit all the quaint villages in the area and stop for a cream tea.
Lyme Regis makes an alternative day out and children of all ages will enjoy hunting for fossils in the high cliffs that overlook the town itself. Topsham, Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton are all worth visiting each with independent shops. Shops and pub ¼ mile.
