The south coast offers traditional English seaside breaks; with Victorian promenades, small fishing villages, sandy and rocky beaches and a beautiful coastline to explore.

Devon’s natural scenery is spectacular, and you should definitely spend some time exploring the bleak and beautiful Dartmoor and the diverse and scenic Exmoor. Both areas are stunningly beautiful and offer families plenty of outdoor activity. There are hundreds of family attractions in Devon from outdoor activity centers to theme parks and from museums and art galleries to castles and historic houses and gardens. It is the perfect family destination at any time of the year; whether for a summer holiday spent on the beach or a Christmas getaway spent in front of a roaring fire.

Family Cottages with Pools

In the summer months, Devon is warm and friendly with the beaches and sands providing the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Having your own pool, however, gives you an even more luxurious holiday and is great for days when you just want to relax and unwind, while your kids play. Being able to sit by a pool without driving or lugging beach stuff around makes it much easier for you to relax and you will feel much more rested, as a result.

Family Holiday Cottages

Devon’s villages and towns tend to be very idyllic with traditional cottages and tasteful modern houses, unlike most other places. For families, this means you can stay in a beautiful and private traditional cottage or a tasteful modern, spacious house, and you will have a great experience and plenty of peace and privacy. You can find cottages in almost every corner of the county. If you are looking to spend your time walking and enjoying the countryside then consider the edges of Dartmoor.

Pet Friendly Family Cottages

For families, taking your pets with you on holiday saves a lot of hassle; you do not need to ask favors from the neighbors or pay for kennels or boarding. Thankfully, Devon has plenty of stunning properties which are pet friendly and you can easily take your pets with you. Devon is great fun for dogs thanks to the vast expanses of moorland, forests, rivers and the beaches, and it will be a treat for them just as much as for you.

Apartments in Devon

Apartments offer you a great way to save money on your holiday, and you can stay in some of the best towns in the South West.
