View all cottages in Devon

Devon is unique among English counties having two non-contiguous coastlines. The South Devon coast includes fabulous cliff habitats and fine stretches of golden sands, where the Atlantic surf rolls in towards the dunes. The fine beach and unspoilt estuaries of South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are not to be missed. Salcombe is a bustling seaside village with excellent shops, sandy beaches and fantastic sailing. From here you can take the ferry around the little bays and inlets of the estuary and up to Kingsbridge. A small market town, with an attractive quay, Kingsbridge is a wonderful place to sit and watch the terns, ducks and other sea birds floating on the water.

Neolithic Rocks on Exmoor

Inland is Exeter with its fine cathedral and of course Dartmoor, an immense moorland area, where Dartmoor ponies roam freely; an ideal area for riding and walking.

To the north is the Exmoor National Park, a incredibly varied landscape, with areas of open moorland, intimate deep valleys, ancient oak woodlands, spectacular cliffs and secluded bays, this is an ideal for holidays at any time of the year.

There are beautiful coastal villages, the most famous being Porlock, Lymington and Lynmouth, whilst inland Lorna Doone valley is not to be missed. A wonderful area for fishing, walking and riding, the village of Exford is famous for its hunting, shooting and fishing. Its shops and hotels are grouped around the picturesque village green close to the bridge over the River Exe. There are some lovely walks south down the Exe valley from Exford.
