Cottages by the sea in Devon

Enjoying two distinct coastlines, Devon offers double the fun for those seeking either aquatic adventures or seaside tranquillity.

The tempestuous North Coast offers atmospheric walks along its cliffs and a plethora of playtime potential along its shores. For a great family friendly get away, take a cottage near the expansive sands at Westward Ho! As well as traditional beach pastimes, it’s also home to more fast-paced, adrenaline-fuelled pursuits: try your hand and kite-surfing, drive a kite buggy or take to the seas to windsurf. Surfing and laid back surf culture characterise many of North Devon’s seaside towns: soak it up with a holiday cottage in Woolacombe, Bideford or head to Croyde to sample a nostalgic seaside holiday town with modern day style.

As an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, North Devon is a visual feast. Add in the additional attractions of delightful beach-side towns and all their amenities as well as the potential to discover splendid isolation by striking out along the coastal paths, and you have all the ingredients for a truly memorable seaside escape right from your Devon cottage’s doorstep.

Devon’s dual aspect ensures visitors to the county are spoilt for choice. South Devons Coast’s more gentle character means that a swathe of coastline - encompassing the towns of Torquay, Babbacombe, Paignton and Brixham – has been dubbed ‘The English Riviera’. Think exotic palm trees, restaurants and cottages with sea views and boats bobbing gently in aquamarine waters. As befitting its maritime focus, regattas – from world class races, to just-for-fun spectacles – fill the seas along the coastline during the summer.

As much for families looking for action-packed escapes as couples seeking serenity, Devon’s South Coast is packed full of potential day-trips and exciting attractions wherever you decide to take your seaside holiday cottage.
