"Sykes cottages were very professional. Really pleased with all
aspects. We would definitely use this company again."

First time booking with Sykes, very simply done all online.

Welcome to a wonderfully rural corner of England. A place where
unspoilt, rolling countryside meets a spectacular coastline of
pristine beaches; a place dotted with a collection of South
Don boots and binoculars and walk the South West Coastal Path.
Much of the region is an AONB or owned by the National Trust so
expect amazing coastal scenery whichever way you trek. Choose from
an array of Blue Flag beaches - perfect for buckets and spades and
many fantastic for crabbing. Look out for the wildlife centre at
Dawlish Warren. Hop on the sea tractor to Burgh Island from
Bigbury-on-Sea. Go surfing at Bantham and sailing at Salcombe. Or
head inland to the wild granite slopes of Dartmoor for wonderful
walking, cycling, riding and more. Add golf, canoeing, rock
climbing...you're sure to find an activity for everyone.
High-hedged lanes weave across the green landscape linking
sleepy hamlets and historic market towns. Discover their charm,
perhaps planning your South Devon cottage stay to coincide with a
colourful festival. Highlights include summertime regattas, the
South Devon Crab Festival (a fabulous water carnival so rare to
find these days) and the Dartmouth Food Festival, a three-day
extravaganza celebrating the region's best food, drink and
What else? Attractions of every sort from roller coasters and
castles to railways and chilli farms. And last, but not least, this
glorious area is blessed with one of the mildest climates in the UK
- another great reason to book a cottage in South Devon!
