About Devon

This part of the world is 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 and with the mass of rural landscape in between, Devon is the fourth largest English county. There's plenty of space for everyone, even in peak periods you can find a secluded spot to take time to yourself. 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. All this and more make Devon holidays some of the best in the UK, so we've carefully picked only holiday cottages we'd like to stay in ourselves, to make sure you'll fall in love with the place too.

Explore Dartmoor

Not just for walking enthusiasts or dog owners, Dartmoor is a natural sanctuary, a place for meditation and awe-inspiring views, but also extreme sports - think mountain-biking hilly terrain or galloping across the moorland expanse. Just be respectful of the habitat, there's lots of unspoiled havens here where wild horses roam and birdlife abounds.

It's been a Mecca for seaside holidays for many years, with safe sandy beaches dotted with deckchairs and beach huts along the English Riviera of Torbay. It's perfect for young families to bring bucket and spades or more mature holidays for a traditional British seaside holiday; but you're never far from adventure. There are several big towns for nightlife and shopping as well as the City of Plymouth for cultural highlights.
