Make a holiday cottage is Loddiswell your home away from home

Loddiswell sits alongside the River Avon in the South Hams. The picturesque parish enjoys an enviable location just five miles from the sea and under 20 miles from all the cultural offerings of Plymouth. Holidaymakers come to Loddiswell to relax and take in the beauty of rural Devon. It might be a small village but there’s a great sense of community and the residents and holidaymakers are well served by a shop, post office and pub. The market town of Kingsbridge, three miles from Loddiswell, is also a popular holiday destination: it offers all the amenities of a modern town and enjoys easy access to numerous beaches.

HomeAway has a wonderful selection of holiday cottages in Loddiswell. Ranging from two to three bedrooms, these lovely abodes can accommodate four to eight people. Holiday cottages in Loddiswell start at around £275 per week and for that guests can expect fully furnished accommodation with all the comforts of home. Additional amenities available at select holiday homes could include internet access, a BBQ area and garden, or a DVD player.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: The beauty of the South Hams is likely to draw visitors out of their Loddiswell holiday homes. Walking, cycling, and horse riding are all popular options in the area. Visitors can head down to the South West Coast Path to take in the scenery, or enjoy the tranquility of the countryside away from the beach if they so desire.

-Beaches: Loddiswell is within easy reach of two Blue Flag beaches. The closest is Bigbury on Sea Beach, located just four miles away. The second beach, Blackpool Sands, is eight miles from Loddiswell in bustling Dartmouth. Both beaches are excellent for swimming, feature a long crescent shape, soft sands, and are bordered by convenient cafés and restaurants.

-Watersports: Each year thousands of tourists come to Devon to surf, sea kayak and windsurf. Thurlestone Sands is a major hub for these sports, as is Slapton Sands and Torcross Beach. Each of these locations is fewer than eight miles from most Loddiswell holiday cottages. Serious watersports enthusiasts may want to consider staying in one of the many holiday apartments in Thurlestone for added convenience.

-Family attractions: The South Hams is a wonderful place to take a family holiday. In addition to all the activities available at the beach, there is plenty to explore inland as well. Loddiswell’s own South Devon Chilli Farm is a fun place for foodie families. Outside of Loddiswell, nearby Dartmouth features a castle, museum, and zoological park.

-Golf: Those staying in Loddiswell holiday accommodation will find themselves surrounded by beautiful golf courses. Situated on the coast, Thurlestone Golf Course is the most impressive with amazing views of cliffs, the sea, and sandy beaches. Not to be outdone, Bigbury Golf Club at Bigbury on Sea also commands impressive views. To golf further inland, head to Dartmouth Golf and Country Club.

Weather in Loddiswell

Loddiswell is one of those lovely locations where the weather remains mild throughout the year. The best time to visit for beachgoers is in July or August when temperatures hit the mid-20s, whilst golfers and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy pleasant conditions from April all the way to October. Because temperatures rarely dip below freezing, it’s also possible to visit in the winter months; just dress warmly and be prepared for a little rain.

The children varied in age from 3-15 and there was something to entertain all of them. As the weather was particularly nice they spent a lot of time in the gardens playing football, bouncing on the trampoline and fishing for tadpoles! The games barn was used once or twice one the sun went down by the older kids although the younger children needed to be supervised in there at all times. The kitchen was well equipped and it was lovely to be able to seat us all around the table for evening meals and games. The log burner in the lounge was very welcome in the chilly evenings, although there was also additional heating throughout the house. The house was clean, comfortable and basic which meant we didn't need to be worried about the children touching things they shouldn't or breaking anything! The location proved a great base for exploring lots of the local beaches and kingsbridge itself. Hope cove was a particular favourite of ours. The chilli farm at the end of the road proved popular and we spent the morning there on our last day. Ant was very accommodating and made it clear to ask if we needed anything, which we didn't and he clearly wasn't bothered by the noise 8 children and a dog can create! Overall a very relaxing break, we are looking forward to returning.
