Devon holidays are relaxing by nature thanks to Devon’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and two UNESCO World Heritage Sites found on the coast and deep in the green rolling countryside. Devon boasts a few unexpected things to see and do; whether it is a vineyard tour or a network of prehistoric caves the county may surprise you.
Taking one of our many Devon cottages opens up the county for exploration, fun and leisure through theme parks, English Heritage sites and miles upon miles of coastline. Whether you are letterboxing on Dartmoor or having a cream tea picnic you will be glad you chose a Devon holiday.
