South Devon Cottages

Devon's south coast is sprinkled with classic seaside towns where the gentle waters are ideal for relaxing in boats or for family holidays on the beach.Read more

South Devon's soft, seductive lowlands chaperone 60 miles of Heritage Coast and the South Hams. Snooze off lunch under the oak on the village green or lolling on your beach of choice.  The wonderful fresh produce in this area is perfect for food lovers and you certainly can't go home without trying the county's famous cream tea.

Stretching from the Tamar bridge in Plymouth across the bays of Bigbury, Start, Babbacombe and half of Lyme Bay, to Lyme Regis, south Devon has the ultimate seaside sweep of holiday resorts. Maritime towns and popular beaches range from Salcombe with its naturally sheltered harbour to the fishing port of Brixham built on steep hills. The towns of Torquay and Paignton are the principal seaside resorts.

Exmouth has a seafront facing Dawlish Warren, home to one of the only natural sand spits in the world, and is the start of the Jurassic Coast that runs from East Devon, along Dorset. This coastline is a UNESCO World Heritage site encompassing the towns of Budleigh Salterton, Branscombe, Beer and Seaton. Think pebbles, beach huts and deckchairs for traditional holidays beside the sea.

We have 128 self catering cottages in south Devon.
