Devon is the ideal place for both short breaks in the UK and longer holidays and this picturesque part of the country will not disappoint anyone who visits.
Adrenaline junkies will no doubt appreciate the ample opportunities to try their hand at watersports, while nearby Dartmoor and Exmoor are the ideal locations to get away from it all and enjoy a bracing walk, whether as a family or on a romantic daytrip.
This is where staying in holiday cottages in Devon can prove convenient. There is no need to rush trying to get the kids ready for breakfast, or come home early from your excursion so you do not miss the evening dining sitting, as you perhaps would in a hotel.
At Classic Cottages, we offer a large variety of accommodation so you are sure to find your ideal property, no matter how exact your requirements are. Whether you are staying in the north or south, we have the perfect cottage for you.
Get to know north Devon
North Devon is known for its gorgeous beaches, diverse wildlife and interesting coastal towns – the only difficulty you may have is deciding where to explore first!
Barnstaple is the oldest borough in the country and you may be surprised at how bustling it is, with a large variety of shops mixed in with its Georgian, Medieval and Victorian architecture.
When staying in holiday cottages in north Devon, you might also like to visit Exmoor. A national park, this breathtaking area is home to pretty little villages which you can discover along the way.
Appledore was established as a port in the 14th century and has continued to make its mark to the present day. This quiet and relaxing fishing village is home to the North Devon Maritime Museum, perfect for those who like to learn about the history of their holiday destination.
South Devon holiday cottages
Holiday cottages in south Devon are the ideal base from which to discover this part of the county as with no dining times to adhere to – or curfews in the evenings – you can explore at your own pace.
With plenty of market towns to get to know, you will never get bored in south Devon. Totnes has a cosmopolitan feel to it but stays true to its culture and heritage. In one day, you might like to visit Totnes Castle and then head for a spot of retail therapy and a cocktail or two.
In Dartmouth you will no doubt be taken aback by just how pretty it is. Try your hand at watersports such as sailing, or stay on land and visit one of the many art exhibitions dotted around.
Meanwhile, the Victorian railway town of Newton Abbot is a great location from which to explore Dartmoor National Park, while the destination itself is home to a racecourse, cinema and lots of theatres.
