Please find below a selection of personally inspected country cottages in Devon.
From lush, rolling countryside dotted with picture-postcard villages, to wild expanses of rugged moorland, not forgetting two breathtaking coastlines, Devon really is a county of delights and there's no better way of exploring it than by holidaying in one of our fabulous Devon country cottages.
Around Holsworthy and Hatherleigh lies 'Ruby Country', a wonderful spot for rambling, riding and cycling. Discover the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, rich in wildlife and laden with all kinds of attractions. To the south, the ancient landscapes of Dartmoor abound with myths and legends. Miniature ponies, historic market towns, Morris dancing, snail racing - Dartmoor promises unique experiences. Head north to Devon's other famous National Park, Exmoor, offering a heady mix of rocky coastline and heather-clad moorland, roamed by wild ponies and deer. Both areas are havens for walkers and enthusiasts will marvel at the Two Moors Way.
And wherever your Devon country cottage may be, you're never far from the coast. Indeed, this is where the countryside meets the sea, with wonderful beaches and coves all around.
Add a range of visitor attractions to suit all ages and tastes - and it's little wonder our Devon country cottages prove so popular!
