South Devon is known for its green rolling scenery and long roads lined with trees and fields, wrapped around the bottom of Dartmoor towards the sea. And here you'll find what is known as The English Riviera; a particularly popular stretch of holiday destinations, favoured for their calm seas, big beaches and pretty English piers.

The big hitters with all the facilities and famous sea views include Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, which border iconic Torbay. This sheltered bay is a very family friendly holiday destination with plenty of places to stay, most cottages with views out over the gentle waters. There are plenty of beach cottages along this coast, particularly in places such as Shaldon, a riverside location by the sea where many of the waterfront holiday properties supply boats and canoes for your enjoyment.

Seaside holiday cottages in South Devon come in all shapes and sizes to make the most of their location. From quaint little cottages in secluded beach settings, to luxury apartments perched on clifftops to make the most of the sea views, and sprawling coastal cottages set back into the countryside but with glimpses of the deep blue on the horizon. Holiday homes by the sea will get your time away off to the best start. Breathe in that fresh, curative sea air and relax. We've got 50 of the best accommodation in South Devon.
