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.

"Enjoy the ‘cream’ of Devon at one of the twelve cottages on the Ashcombe Estate..."

Situated in the heart of rolling Devon countryside, the privately owned Ashcombe country estate nestles in a peaceful valley close to the sandy beaches of Dawlish and Torquay. Enjoy walking on the estate’s hills and woodlands, swim in the heated indoor swimming pool, or relax in the sauna at Woodhouse Farm while children play in the indoor and outdoor playgrounds. The owners have made a great effort to ensure that the cottages are both comfortable and practical while the location could not be better for a wide range of Devon attractions.
It might be a family holiday or big reunion, a special celebration, a fun business get-together, a group trip, or a relaxing weekend to recharge your batteries; whatever the reason the facilities are designed to be perfect for winter and summer holidays and the secrets of the Ashcombe cottages’ appeal are presentation, comfort and convenience. The cottages are maintained to very high standards. All have leather sofas, flatscreen digital TVs and very comfortable mattresses - the owners consider a good night’s sleep the most important thing! The cottages either have Italian tiled floors or wooden floors, and some still retain many original features including oak beamed ceilings. The properties cater for almost any party size, sleeping from 4 to 28 people and are all rated either 4 or 5 stars. Ashcombe’s larger cottages provide great value for money for visitors sharing with their friends and families. For meals, an in-house chef can be booked to come and do the hard work. The heated indoor swimming pool is perfect for any rainy days and keep the children happy. Cider Barn sleeping 16 and Nut Tree Farm sleeping 28, which are both 5 star rated, also have outdoor swimming pools for the summer.
For those wishing to enjoy a more adrenaline-charged holiday, the brilliant Ashcombe outdoor activity centre (at extra cost) offers quad bike safaris, clay pigeon shooting, archery, paintballing and more and is located just under a mile down the lane and is available for those 14 years and over. At the end of the day the Ashcombe Village Club provides cheap beer and a cheerful atmosphere.
Both Dartmoor National Park and the historic city of Exeter are only 20 minutes’ drive away while the famous South Devon Coast, with wonderful sandy beaches, is barely 3 miles. Exeter and Newton Abbot Racecourses, several golf courses, loads of family theme parks, zoos, sailing and fishing are all within easy reach, not to mention the many excellent pubs and restaurants that Devon is famous for. The wild beauty of Dartmoor is 20 minutes away with its abundance of wildlife and dramatic landscapes. Numerous National Trust properties are close by including Agatha Christie’s Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with bustling boat harbour, castle, contemporary art galleries and boutiques. Salcombe with its beaches, sailing and water sports is also easily accessible, as well as Blackpool Sands, Slapton and picturesque Dittisham with its annual crab catching competition.

Slightly further afield, East Cornwall and the Eden Project are within an hour’s drive. Take a walk along the South West Coast Path which runs along the entire length of the Jurassic Coast and offers the walker stunning views, with a bird’s eye view of many coastal features. From the coast path you can experience the drama of sheer cliff faces, take in the wonderful towns of Beer, the ‘picture postcard’ fishing village, or Budleigh Salterton. This tranquil and historic seaside town nestles on the edge of a pebble beach beneath spectacular red cliffs, made famous by literary giants such as Noel Coward, P.G. Wodehouse and Anthony Trollope. Visit Seaton with its famous trams or Sidmouth which still has a unique charm and has captivated thousands of holidaymakers. Beautiful gardens, leisurely walks, Regency history, clean beaches and friendly shops – it is all here in this lovely seaside town. All in all Ashcombe is an excellent base to explore, experience and enjoy ‘The Cream of Devon’. Main shops 3 miles.

Occupying the most superb elevated position, along the North Devon Heritage Coast, this unique holiday property is set up on the cliff side and offers unrivalled panoramic views over the bay and Bristol Channel from its principal rooms. Laid out over three floors, and of unusual ‘upside-down’ style, it makes the most of the vista from its third-floor living room and dining room, both of which offer magnificent views from their large picture windows and open out onto a spacious terraced area in which to relax and enjoy the view. Outside there are large terraced gardens, complete with furniture and barbecue.
The picturesque, ‘old-world’ fishing village of Combe Martin is a short distance away and offers its own small beach and rocky cove as well as a range of quaint local shops, tea rooms and pubs. Also well worth a visit is the pretty village of Berrynarbor, just ½ mile distant; situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it oozes charm and provides the visitor with tea rooms, a village shop/post office and an old inn (children welcome), all scattered among its traditional thatched cottages. For more extensive facilities, head for the popular harbour side town of Ilfracombe, offering boat and fishing trips to Lundy Island, secluded coves and beaches along its coast, as well as its own theatre, a swimming pool, restaurants and shops. Miles of golden sands await at the resorts of Woolacombe, Saunton and Putsborough – popular with surfers and beach lovers. Alternatively, head away from the coast and explore the wild open moors of Exmoor National Park (5 miles), where wildlife abounds and horse riding is readily available. Exmoor Zoological Park and Bossington Wildlife Park, within 10 miles. NT properties of Arlington Court, Watersmeet and Dunster Castle easily accessible. For great family days out, visit Dinosaur Park at Combe Martin, the Big Sheep at Bideford, or Watermouth Castle (just ½ mile from the property). Shops 1 mile.

Heathfield Farm is a unique Grade II listed farmstead, set in 80 acres of tranquil grounds, amidst the South Hams countryside. The main drive into the property sweeps down for approximately ½ mile through farmland towards Heathfield Down house and barns. The main building at Heathfield is a large, impressive Devon longhouse which has been split into 4 properties, one of which is Heathfield Down Farmhouse ref HQQN). Heathfield Farm is just a short drive from the beaches and coves that scatter this stretch of South Devon. Modbury, with its shops, old inn, craft centre and impressive church, lies just 2 miles away. This is an ideal holiday base for exploring the Devon coastline, with its sandy beaches, 6 miles away. At the bustling hamlet of Bigbury-on-Sea, visitors can follow a 4-mile long ‘tidal lane’ during low tide or visit Burgh Island, with its 14th-century inn and smuggling connections. The beach at Bantham is easily accessible, as is Thurlestone, a chocolate-box village of pink-washed thatched cottages, with a sandy beach backed by rolling farmland. There is golf and fishing nearby, as well as beautiful views towards Dartmoor National Park, a haven for walkers and nature lovers. Plymouth and Exeter with their extensive shopping and leisure facilities are about 14 miles and 40 miles respectively. Exeter is dominated by the distinctive St Peter’s Cathedral, a stately monument with two great Norman towers, and much of the interior dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Yachting at Newton Ferrers, Salcombe and Dartmouth. Shops and pubs 2 miles.
