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.

"A truly magical estate to escape to and unwind..."

Nestling peacefully high in the hills above the Taw/Torridge estuaries, the Webbery Manor Estate - a Saxon manor listed in the Domesday Book as being given by the conqueror to Nicholas the Crossbowman - is a haven of rural tranquillity, yet lies within convenient striking distance of the North Devon market towns of Bideford and Barnstaple. In the 30 acres of parkland and woods surrounding the Manor House (rebuilt during the Regency period), grazing sheep compete for space with deer, hare, owls, pheasant, birds of prey and other wildlife. Stunning views of Exmoor and Lundy Island (accessible by ferry from Bideford and Ilfracombe) may be enjoyed from the grounds on clear days. Gardeners will delight in the many specimen trees and rhododendrons, and in the stone and brick walled kitchen gardens from which complimentary seasonal produce is made available to guests. In addition, the gardens at RHS Rosemoor, Marwood and Tapley Park are all within easy driving distance.
Four of the properties (HDDN, HDDO, HDDP and HDDQ) were originally constructed using materials from the estate and all have been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard with careful attention being paid to comfort and detail. Beautifully decorated and furnished with antique and period pieces, they offer solid oak floors, hand-made curtains and wood-burning stoves with fuel available from the estate’s woodland. The owners’ tennis court may be used subject to availability (non-marking footwear must be worn). Dove Cote House is a substantial residence, truly unique with dove cotes set into the front gable of the house. The interior boasts vaulted ceilings, galleried landings and many other interesting features. The main bedroom has a roof terrace with breathtaking westerly views out to Lundy Island - just the place for breakfast or watching the setting sun with a glass of wine on a warm summer’s evening.
A link to the Groom’s Cottage can be opened up to create a six-bedroomed cottage accommodating twelve people. The Groom’s Cottage which adjoins the Dove Cote House has open-plan accommodation on the ground floor with French doors leading to a secluded walled garden. The Linhay, where carts were once kept and the hay stored for the horses which worked the estate in a bygone age, is a two-bedroomed detached cottage with a bright and airy interior which oozes charm. Both bedrooms enjoy westerly views over the Bristol Channel towards Lundy. The Appleloft, which once housed the estate’s cider press is a delightful spacious, two-bedroomed cottage with a gallery and vaulted ceiling, adjoining the Groom’s Cottage.
Chapel Cottage (H81), the fifth property, adjoins the Manor House (occupied by the owners) and is a conversion of what was once the family place of worship, whilst the sixth, The Coach House (HPPR and HPPS), has been reconstructed in the Regency style and has wonderful views towards Exmoor in the distance. It has been divided into two stunning wings, Cutcliffe Chambers and Luppincott Chambers. Each is sited either side of an internal light tower and can be booked separately or, for a larger party, taken together. The Garden Cottage is a spacious retreat for two, and as it adjoins The Coach House it can also be booked as an annexe to this property to create a five bedroom cottage accommodating ten.
Webbery is ideal for family gatherings, celebrating a birthday or anniversary or for those who just want to escape and unwind on holiday in a truly magical place. The locality offers a hugely varied range of walks in woodland, along coastal and esturine trails and for the more energetic, The Tarka Trail is located only a few minutes away and provides extensive (and largely level) cycling with wonderful estuary views. The sea is never far away from Webbery and the long sandy beaches of Instow...

History is woven into the fabric of these quietly set rural manor cottages....

Courtlands Manor Estate dates back to the 13th century and was once one of the principal country houses and estates in South Devon. The owners live in the manor house and have lovingly, completely transformed the barns into extremely comfortable holiday cottages. Approached via a sweeping private drive, this cluster of barns nestle in a hidden and sheltered valley with stunning country views across the rolling Devon countryside. Five cottages (refs HTTA, HTTB, HTTC, HTTS & HTTT) are named after the families who once lived and prospered here and the other two (refs KAAS and KAAT) are ideal for a large group or couple respectively. There is many an interesting tale to be told of the inhabitants of Courtlands Manor over the past 700 years. One relates that the Champernownes arrived from Normandy in the 11th century and were one of the largest landowners in the county, and another that the Elliotts lived here in 1438 and the son was the mayor of Plymouth, prior to Sir Francis Drake. Located just over 1 mile from the historic market town of Kingsbridge, Courtlands is set on its own private land and is the ultimate ‘get away from it all’ holiday retreat. In harmony with its surroundings and no passing traffic, wildlife is abundant with pheasants and rabbits, the only near neighbours are the owls, whose ‘hoots’ are often the only disruption of the peace and quiet of the star-filled, dark skies at night. Yet centrally situated between Dartmouth and Salcombe it is in a fantastic location to fully explore this region of South Devon and in particular the South Hams. The bustling riverside town of Dartmouth, so popular with tourists, is full of lovely independent and unusual shops, bistros and eateries and has Dartmouth Naval College and the landmark Dartmouth Castle sitting majestically at the mouth of the estuary. Sea trips along the coast to Paignton can be taken from here, or a steam train back to Buckfastleigh. The fantastic, sweeping coastline stretches from Strete, high on the cliff top, along to the famous Slapton Sands, with its dramatic coast road with the sea on one side and a freshwater lagoon on the other. It has year round appeal, with its wide pebbly beach so popular in the summer and great for fishing in the winter. Visit the little, historic fishing villages dotted along the coast, the lighthouse at Start Point and beyond to East Portlemouth and of course Salcombe. Shop and pub 2 miles, restaurant 2 miles.

Open-plan living/dining room and kitchen area with double oven and quarry tiled floor. First floor: Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Second floor: Double bedroom with 5ft bed and en-suite shower room with toilet.

Filleigh End Ref: HTTN

This attractive holiday property forms part of the owners’ large, Grade II listed Georgian villa, set in 13 acres of the owners’ grounds. Conveniently located, it is only a 15-minute walk down quiet Devon lanes to the heart of the small market town of Chudleigh, while the beach at Teignmouth or the wilds of Dartmoor are both less than 15 minutes’ drive. The wonderful cathedral city of Exeter is just a 10-minute drive. Haldon Forest is ideal for cycling and walking, and GoApe is also close by. Dawlish with its sandy beach and nature reserve is a short journey. The market town of Totnes is also worth a visit. Shop 1 mile, pub 400 yards.

Slowpool Ref: HMMA

Slowpool is a detached period property which has been extended to provide spacious accommodation for a large family or friends - who want to holiday together or have a special occasion to celebrate. It occupies a very rural setting at the end of a track in a 6-acre wood, 3 miles south of Honiton. The wood is a haven for wildlife with regular sighting of badgers, deer and an abundance of birds. There is a network of footpaths in the woods for guests to use at their leisure. The coast of Sidmouth is a mere 20-minute drive.
This is a superb house with total privacy; it has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard and boasts three wood-burning stoves, together with many original features. For walkers and bird-watchers, this really is the most suitable accommodation. There are so many walks to enjoy from the front door.
Many activities are available in the area including golf, fishing, horse riding and sailing. There are also numerous NT properties - all within a short drive. Exmouth is close by and has lovely 2-mile stretch of beach and was once home to the wives of Nelson and Byron respectively, whilst a bit further on lies the genteel town of Budleigh Salterton with its white-washed and thatched cottages which attracted such visitors as Noel Coward and PG Wodehouse. At Exeter, the South West Coastal Path Park is an ideal family day out. Exmoor National Park is also worth a visit, with its rugged landscape and ponies. Shops and pubs 3 miles.
