Holiday cottages by the sea in Devon

 

Devon Cottages

With two coastlines and miles of moorland, there is plenty to explore in the vast county of Devon, from lush valleys and open beaches to pretty harbourside coastal towns.

Rural idyll in all its many varieties from the sheep crossing the road on Dartmoor to the cricketers on the village green. The coast is good too. From the wide swathes of beach in north Devon to the sheltered coves in the south, with the big open skies over Dartmoor in between, there are plenty of pieces of Devon to fall in love with.

Devon is England’s only county with two coastlines. With the mass of rural landscape between, Devon is the fourth largest English county. Holidays in Devon range from surfing havens on the north coast, through dog friendly countryside retreats, to south and east devon cottage holidays on the waterfront in the South Hams. From Lynton and Lynmouth in North Devon, through Dartmoor to Salcombe and Start Point on the English channel. 

The north coast is exposed to the Celtic sea with surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Saunton and Westward Ho!, and a self catering cottage in Devon has the best of everything. With seaside resorts for deck chairs and icecreams, high moorland for hiking and horizon views, valleys of lush greenery, cities such as Plymouth for shopping, and rural villages for quaint customs, Devon has it all.
