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.

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.

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.

This 300-year-old, granite, thatched Devon longhouse lies detached in a timeless hamlet in the Dartmoor National Park, 3 miles from Moretonhampstead, surrounded by ancient woodland and rolling hills. To the front is a large, south-facing lawned garden with table and chairs - a wonderful place for stargazing at night - enclosed by a sturdy stone wall displaying long-unused bee boles. The property has many original features and a wood-burning stove, but has also been updated for today’s lifestyle; it is spacious and is in an ideal location for families and friends to get together for a holiday or a celebration. Moretonhampstead is a friendly, busy, ‘gateway-to-Dartmoor’ village with shops, good food pubs, church and an outdoor swimming pool; heath-topped and surrounded by hills, it has good walks locally and has reservoir/river fishing close by.

In addition to having many of its own attractions, it is the ideal base to explore some of Britain’s most spectacular and beautiful countryside including moorland and the coast. For the active, Moretonhampstead boasts what many find to be a surprising range of sporting facilities and the great expanse of Dartmoor presents any rambler with unlimited options.
