West Country cottages 3 – Holiday cottages in Devon

Devon has superb beaches, like Woolacombe, well known for its surf, or Blackpool Sands near Dartmouth, if you want the perfect family beach; inland, arguably, the villages in Devon are prettier than those in Cornwall and other parts on the West Country.

There is nowhere in southern England to match the wildness of Dartmoor – walk a few hundred yards from a road and you can find complete silence and solitude – a wild moorland landscape littered with ancient relics such as standing stones and stone crosses. But for excellent walking, Dartmoor is rivalled by Exmoor to the north.

Devon is a big county and the eastern portion with its red soil, lush farms and genteel coastal towns (think Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth and Seaton) has a different but equally appealing character.

Devon cottage types

As well as an abundance of rural country cottages, frequently on farms and converted from old farm buildings, there are a variety of cottages close to the Devon beaches and coastline. These include wooden lodges within a Holiday Park in Bude, a Georgian country house with four-star cottages and apartments in Dawlish and a group of cottages in a secluded valley, close to a sandy cove near Salcombe.

Particularly interesting Devon cottages we currently list are a converted railway station in Lynton, a fabulous apartment at the top of a turreted folly in Dunchideock and an excellent farm conversion in Colyton that includes a children's play area with wendy house, play tower and trampoline.

Our Devon cottages section also lists several large properties (rather more than cottages!) suitable for larger numbers (10+) – ideal for family groups or special occasions.
