Make a holiday cottage in Devon your home away from home

Devon is a traditional UK holiday destination lined with sunny beaches on its north and south borders, and filled with beautiful countryside in between. Holiday homes in Exeter are in the largest city in the county, a hub for cultural and historic sites. The stunning Dartmoor National Park and the majority of Exmoor National Park also lie within the border of Devon, attracting outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers from across the UK, and holiday homes in Torbay take advantage of the gorgeous English Riviera. A wealth of fun family attractions and a long list of golf courses round out the region, making it an attractive spot for all kinds of holidaymakers.

Whether it’s exploring the countryside or hitting the beach visitors dream of, HomeAway has a diverse range of holiday cottages in Devon located near a whole host of attractions. Catering to visitors of all budgets, small cottages start at under £150 per week, whilst luxury holiday accommodation can be booked for upwards of £1,000 per week. Regardless of the price, all holiday cottages in Devon come fully furnished, with select accommodation offering added amenities like tennis courts, swimming pools, and internet access.

Things to do

-Beaches: Devon benefits from beaches on two coasts. In North Devon, visitors will find a number of spots that are well suited for surfing, concentrated between Bideford and Ilfracombe, particularly at Croyde Bay. The north coast is also home to two family-friendly Blue Flag beaches: Westward Ho! and Tunnels Beach. In South Devon, some of the top beaches for families and watersports are at Bantham, Dawlish, Teignmouth and – of course – all around Torbay.

-Outdoor activities: Temperate weather makes outdoor adventures possible for most of the year in Devon. Dartmoor National Park is an excellent hub for outdoor activities, with numerous country roads and trails for walking, cycling, and horse riding. Dartmoor is also popular with rock climbers and kayakers. Visitors staying in a Devon holiday cottage closer to the coast can also enjoy the beauty of the South West Coast Path.

-Family attractions: Families choosing to stay in Devon holiday homes up north can visit the Milky Way Adventure Park, which has lots of theme park rides and play areas for children of all ages. The Crealy Great Adventure Park offers similar attractions and is located closer to Exeter in East Devon. Over in Combe Martin, the Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park is yet another great place for kids offering a multitude of animal encounter experiences.

-Golf: Located on the north coast of Devon near Barnstaple, Saunton Golf Club has the highest rated golf course in Devon. Its East Golf Course offers 18 challenging holes over varied terrain. The course at the Royal North Devon Golf Club, just north of Bideford, is one of the oldest outside of Scotland and is unique in that sheep and horses frequent the course. East Devon Golf Club near Exeter also has a highly rated course that is a convenient drive from the city.

Weather in Devon

Devon covers a rather large area, but weather in the county can generally be characterised as temperate. Temperatures along the coast are milder and vary more further inland. July and August are typically the warmest months, when high temperatures near 20°C are not uncommon. Spring and the rest of summer see moderate amounts of rain. Along the coast, winters are mild and rainy. Frost is common further inland, though snow is uncommon.

Travel to Devon

The easiest way to reach Devon is by car. Drivers can take the M5 straight to Exeter. From there, a series of A-roads cover much of the rest of the county. It is also possible to take the train into Exeter or to several other major towns in Devon. One final option is to fly into Exeter International Airport and hire a car from there.

Riki and Martin were very welcoming and also informative. Moreover, they were on hand to answer any questions or provide anything extra we might need. The area itself was beautiful and the barns immediate surroundings are very peaceful and quiet which is great when coming back from a day out and you can just relax. There are also lots of local places to visit bude, clovelly, welcombe mouth and hartland quay to name a few. Definitely worth a visit!

The booking process is simple and straight forward by phone or online with a fast response from the Owner. Old Hundredth is well presented and always very clean, warm and cosy. It's located in a lovely village with an excellent pub serving good meals on one side and an ancient and popular church on the other side. The cottage is near to local beaches and walks, and the shops are not too far away by car.

It was everything we expected and more. Warm, cosy, incredibly clean and tidy. Great central location, good little shop at local garage 200 metres away and good pub in short walking distance - uphill there so downhill back! Fab to walk our dogs in safety in grounds early morning and evening and Alex and Annie warm and friendly hosts. The Internet was absolutely fine on our phones but my old laptop wouldn't connect so just be aware. Alex did say he has plans to improve the signal to the cottage. Not that we wanted it but I think there was only one tv Chanel. We rarely go to the same location twice but we would certainly consider visiting Lapford Mill again if Alex and Annie will have us! A big thank you to them.
