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.

"...wonderful countryside, stunning beaches and friendly locals - the perfect combination for an unforgettable holiday experience...."

Set in the heart of village life, Court Prior Farm is a lively working farm where lambs are in the pastures, cattle graze in the fields and the smell of the hay fills the air. In season guests may be able to bottle feed the lambs or feed the bullocks. Elderflower Barn (HDDI) and Cowslip Barn (HDDJ) have been converted from the old milking parlour and retain lovely original features, such as stone arch windows, and both have heavy beams and wooden floors. Each holiday property has a good sized lawned rear garden with pretty planted flower tubs and farming machinery decorating the driveway completes these two lovely adjoining properties. All three properties including Pear Tree House (HGGD) combine modern elements such as underfloor heating, vaulted open ceilings, wood-burning stoves and a farmhouse-style kitchen with granite worktops. Shared swimming pool, hot tub and sauna.
Court Prior Farm has an indoor heated swimming pool shared by all properties, with its own shower and pool house with sauna. A hot tub is situated on the terrace amongst the pretty landscaping for all properties to share. All properties have their own changing room, toilet and access into the pool, via their own private patio areas. Elderflower Barn has a large patio area to the side with specimen trees planted into large tubs giving an almost Mediterranean feel. All three properties may be booked together for a wonderful family gathering to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary.
These three holiday properties would make a super location for a winter break, as well as a summer holiday enjoying the many glorious beaches of the South Devon coastline all within easy driving distance. Blackpool Sands is a fantastic family beach just 4 miles away, has a small shop and facilities as well as ample parking, and makes a lovely day out by the seaside. Slapton Sands is a lovely drive, with the sea on one side and the freshwater lagoon on the other. This area is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the birds and wildlife on the lagoon are amazing, so remember to bring a pair of binoculars. A little further along, the relic of the World War One tank can be recovered from the beach. Driving along inland a little way leads to the town of Kingsbridge.
Alternatively guests may enjoy visiting Dartmouth or Totnes, both just 4 miles away and both quite different. Totnes is a lively colourful town, full of different types of ethnic shops, and hosts a busy market day on Fridays and Saturdays. Dartmouth, nestling on the edge of the river Dart, has a strong maritime history and many designer shops and local artists. For great food the famous New Angel is located in Dartmouth, and is the ideal place for a special meal out. More local to the property is the village of Cornworthy - a quiet hamlet tucked away in the rolling Devon landscape - where there is a nice pub within walking distance which serves good food and real ales. There are many village pubs dotted all around this area including places to eat on the river at Tuckenhay, Ashprington and Dittisham. Shop (in pub) 2 miles, pub 1 mile.

Set in the quaint fishing port of Brixham, it is in a great spot with fantastic sea views from every level of the four storey property, which overlooks the marina, fishing port and Torbay.

You can also feel the somewhat eerie presence of the tors, seven rocky hills presiding majestically over the moors. Take the ferry across to Dartmouth, the neighbouring town to Brixham, set on and across the River Dart. At the mouth of the river are Kingswear and Dartmouth Castles with the rocky waters of the estuary lapping at their feet. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

"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...

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.

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.
