The beautiful area of South Devon offers something for everyone. Whether you are after a family holiday, a romantic getaway, a few days away with friends or even a relaxing break for one - a great holiday awaits you in a South Devon holiday cottage.
One of the main advantages of opting for a holiday or short break on home soil is the ease. An overseas holiday might be tempting, but when you factor in lengthy airport queues, transfer times and possible delays, it doesn’t always seem quite so enticing.
The region offers a host of Blue Flag beaches which would rival many of their Mediterranean counterparts. South Sands beach in the ever popular seaside town of Salcombe is just one of the region’s beaches where golden sands and tranquil clear waters await visitors. The area’s charming beaches make for perfect days out for families with small children.
The region offers a fantastic selection of eateries, so foodies will not go hungry. The area can serve up culinary solutions to suit all palates and budgets. Whether fine dining is your passion or if you prefer grabbing a quick bite as and when, then South Devon has the answer. Seafood is in great supply and can be enjoyed in many waterfront establishments. Those with a sweet tooth will be spoilt for choice with the area’s tasty treats, such as the infamous Devon cream tea - best enjoyed at leisure with friends!
Stunning scenery is in great abundance in South Devon, so walkers and wildlife fanatics are also well catered for. Whether you are after a challenging hike or a saunter and picnic, South Devon has many options. Seasoned walkers should try the infamous South West Coast Path, which takes in 630 miles of beautiful coastline. The Dart Valley Trail in picturesque Dartmouth in the South Hams runs along both sides of the River Dart and is ideal for picnics and strolls with friends. Cruises are also very popular in Dartmouth with many offering people the opportunity to spot the National Trust owned Greenway, Agatha Christie’s riverside residence.
Cyclists fanatics will also be in their element with the abundance of scenic cycle trails in the region. Some of which are ideal for all the family and others, such as the 40 mile route from Dartmouth to Start Point via Kingsbridge being perfect for the experienced cyclist.
Visitors will be spoilt for choice with the array of South Devon holiday cottages on offer, which is plentiful to say the least. Take your pick from quaint country abodes, through to top-spec Visit England Five Star awarded apartments, complete with beautiful river views.
