recommended family holidays

devon holiday cottages, parks & lodges

Devon is one of the most popular holiday destinations in England and it has many award-winning attractions and self catering holiday cottages for families, couples & groups and therefore it is a highly recommended family holiday destination. Whatever you’re looking for in a holiday, whether to get away from it all and relax or to get active and explore, you'll always find things to do in Devon to suit everyone. Wander around traditional fishing villages or along sandy beaches. Explore unspoilt landscapes and a wealth of attractions. Unwind at a spa or get active and try one of the water-sports in Devon.
North Devon holiday cottages are spoilt by the vast unspoilt landscape of Exmoor & by the seemingly unlimited sandy beaches, charming seaside towns & villages. Exmoor is great for walking, riding & cycling or alternatively head for the spectacular coastline to walk the coastal parks for stunning views from the high cliffs above the sea. Or for beach lovers there are resorts like Woolacombe, Ilfracombe & Saunton which have long stretches of sandy beach that are ideal for surfing & sailing. Alternatively head for some of the smaller fishing villages that are dotted around the coast - perfect.
South Devon holiday cottages & accommodation are lucky enough to be close to some of my favourite attractions & resorts. South Devon is famous for one of England's finest holiday destinations & the fabulous coastline stretches from Sidmouth to Plymouth. Whether you are looking for glorious beaches, rugged cliffs or sandy coves to explore you will be more than happy with what this region has to offer. Famous holiday resorts include Torquay, Paington & Brixham, or if you prefer something a little quieter why not try the Salcombe area. Inland is the splendour of Dartmoor National Park or just experience the delights of the Devon countryside. The county town of Exeter is also worth a visit with its cathedral, cobble street & wide selection of shops.
