Devon Cottages by the Sea

Enjoying two distinct coastlines, Devon offers double the fun for those seeking either aquatic adventures or seaside tranquillity. Pick a cottage with easy access to the beach, or take a birds-eye-view in a holiday cottage with jaw-dropping sea views. However you want to enjoy the sea, our coastal cottages make holidays unforgettable. Read more

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.
