Enjoy the winding Devonshire coast with holiday cottages in South Hams

South Hams is a large area in Devon which is comprised of a number of small villages. Stretching around the coast line from the edges of Plymouth and Brixham up to the border of Dartmoor National Park, it comprises a total area of 342 square miles. With a history dating back to Anglo-Saxon times and a strong naval feel, the area is a huge draw for visitors eager to sample the sea air, the many attractions and the walking environment on offer. There is also a large culture scene throughout South Hams and many food and drink festivals take place here throughout the year.

HomeAway has a vast number of holiday cottages in South Hams, which are spread throughout the whole area within easy access of amenities and attractions. Suitable for guest groups of all sizes from couples and small families to far larger groups of ten or more people, there is a wealth of choice on offer. Traditional cottages, seaside homes and rustic barns include inviting bedrooms and spacious open plan kitchens kitted out with dishwashers and laundry facilities. Many cottages have their own private gardens where the wonderful scenery of the Devonshire coast can be appreciated, and some of the more luxurious holiday homes even feature tennis courts and swimming pools. Children and pets are welcomed in certain cottages, whilst parking is available throughout.

South Hams is the ideal destination for people seeking a walking or coastal holiday with a cultural feel, however England has a great deal more to offer visitors. From holiday homes in Bournemouth, the delightful beaches and towns which make up the Dorset coastline can be enjoyed. Meanwhile, for visitors looking for a city break, choosing an apartment in the centre of London provides the ultimate experience of the English capital.

                                                              had a most enjoyable week at this lovely quaint cottage. Everything was very well maintained and spotlessly clean. The spacious open plan kitchen/diner with large farmhouse table was absolutely ideal for our family mealtimes. If you love cooking ( we do ) , there's no need to worry about utensils and equipment as the owners have provided just about everything even a seasoned chef would be likely to need. If you don't then no worries either as there's the fabulous Dolphin Inn right next door serving great food at reasonable prices and no concerns about driving home afterwards if you happen to like more than just the occasional glass of wine. Greta location also as a base for touring with some delightful secluded beaches within walking distance at Wonwell or a little further afield at Bigbury Bay and Salcombe All in all a wonderful time had by all. Will definitely be re-booking at the next opportunity.

                                                              Great weekend

                                                              Such a lovely barn conversion, tastefully completed and really good value. Plenty of room for our annual get away for us 5 ladies. Very clean and tidy, wood burner was a delight. You do need a car as it is very rural, but that was no problem as there are a lot of lovely places to visit in this part of Devon . Ian and Nicola very helpful. We would definitely return here for another visit to the south hams.

                                                              The location was beautiful in November, but in May it was magical. Always a warm welcome Dolphins passed by on our first evening and a seal as we walked along the bay. The setting is really hard to beat and everyone was touched by the house , the scenery and the weather. Can't wait until the next time!
