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.

Travel to Loddiswell

Tiny Loddiswell is tucked away next to a B road, but the drive is well worth it. From the east, the easiest way to reach Loddiswell is by taking the M5 to the A38. After that, take the A381 at Totnes to the B3196. The closest major city to Loddiswell is Plymouth, which is under 20 miles away.

Amazing

5 of 5
We had such an amazing time away celebrating a special occasion, from the welcome hamper which included bread, marmalade, fresh eggs and wine to the fresh scones and how beautiful and clean 'The Loft' was. We couldn't fault it in anyway, Chris and Louise were so lovely and being so close to the beach was amazing. Would definitely recommended to family and friends especially with how reasonable the price is for what you get.

A delightful bungalow and location

5 of 5
This was our second time to stay at The Palms. It is a delightful bungalow, very comfortable and welcoming. It really is a home from home stay. The location is excellent not far from Paignton, Brixham, the Steam Train, the Zoo together, with some lovely walks.
