October Retreats in Devon

Think October and you may not think bright sunshine, clear skies and warm seas. However, you'd be surprised to hear that summer weather often continues well into October, and with months of the sun's ray, the seas are actually at their warmest. Don't believe us? See for yourself and book a self-catering cottage in Devon. We have 188 of the finest cottages available for you to choose from.

If you love the countryside, then Devon in October is sure to delight. With huge expanses of rolling fields and woodland adopting a beautiful golden glow you can choose from countless walks, wandering passed rust-coloured hedgerows and mounds of multi-coloured leaves. If you have got a two or four-legged friend who would love to join you, we have cottages to suit all group sizes including dog-friendly accommodation. Devon doesn't just offer a rural idyll though. Miles of stunning coastline provide a wonderful playground to walk, talk and sit and admire the views. Head off on a solo retreat or gather up all the family; October half term is just around the corner and kids of all ages won't fail to be enthralled by all that's on offer.
