To quote our second edition of Notes & Stories ‘the time you spend away is better off shared’, so why not group together with friends and family for this summer’s holiday?
After all, ‘A roast gets easier the more bellies you have to fill. Grub tastes better when we eat together. Sofas and beds warm up when a person flops down next to you.’
So here are a few of our featured large holiday cottages in Devon for large groups, perfect for a social gathering.
Country holiday cottage with broadband, Iddesleigh near Okehampton, sleeps 6+1
Peace and quiet in a 17th Century country estate. Granny and Grandad can enjoy a relaxed stroll through parkland and walled gardens whilst the children make use of the tennis court next to the cottage. Picnic in the tranquil gardens at a spot found whilst exploring the grounds. Rest, recuperate and let the kids run around to their hearts content. This large family house is the perfect base.
Kirstie Allsopp's 'Homemade Home' found deep in Welcombe Valley, sleeps 14+2
You might've seen this one once or twice on the tv... Kirstie Allsopp's 'Homemade Home' is within walking distance of Welcombe Mouth and is, of course, beautifully decorated throughout. For those who want a bit of space from the rest of the group, the sixth bedroom is separate from the main house, along with the games-room. You can bring your four-legged friend to this one, and enjoy al fresco meals cooked on the barbecue in the secluded grounds.
Spacious country retreat bordered by Lydford Gorge, sleeps 12+2
This is a beauty, characterful yet contemporary in style and with room to swing a dog or two! The Owners have gone above and beyond, providing a hot tub as well as the option to be fully or partially catered for. What more could you want for?
