North Devon: A Guide to the Best Holiday Accommodation

If you have narrowed down your choice of holiday destinations to the Devon and Cornwall area, you certainly won’t be disappointed. This enchanting region has much to offer tourists of all ages, with great beaches, rolling landscapes and granite gorges that are definitely worth exploring. When thinking of holiday accommodation, forget hotels, as they are not only expensive, you are restricted in some ways, whereas, renting a luxury cottage offers you the very best of both worlds. You can sample the delightful cuisine in the local pubs and inns, and every now and then prepare something at your cottage.



North Devon Holiday Locations

The South West Coast is an ideal place to base yourself, and you can book North Devon holiday cottage rentals online from a leading agency. Sadly, luxury cottages are no secret, so make sure you book well in advance if you don’t want to be disappointed, and prices depend on the time of year you plan on going. Combe Martin is a great little village that has the best stretch of beaches, which makes it a firm favourite with surfers, and you can spend a few afternoons exploring the tea shops and quaint pubs where you can listen to stories of pirates and shipwrecks, as told by the locals.

The Benefits of Renting a Luxury Cottage

Renting a luxury cottage in North Devon enables you to enjoy the following benefits:

  • Privacy & Seclusion – You can relax in the garden admiring the amazing view. When the weather is a little rough, you can have a home picnic at your leisure, and with all the mod cons, all you need is to stock up on your favourite food.
  • Come and Go as you Please – You have your set of keys, and having the car really does allow you to come and go as you please. You can plan an early morning walk, take a stroll along the beach at sunset, and prepare yourself for picnics to keep you nourished on those hiking trips.

  • All-Inclusive Package – You can expect to enjoy all the trappings of modern life in a luxury North Devon cottage; flat-screen TV and home theatre system is great for those rainy afternoons, and with an Internet connection, you can keep track of what’s happening in the world. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is laid on, and with 5-star furnishings, you don’t have to compromise on luxury living.


A Hiking Paradise

With both Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks on your doorstep, there is no end of amazing hiking trails to explore, and you can easily spend a few days immersed in the stunning wilderness that North Devon is known for.

    I’ve been looking for my next new place to try out here in the UK for another trip next month and recently tried North Wales. I would love to try Devon next – it looks so pretty. I was thinking about maybe hiring a cottage – I have an anniversary coming up and think it would be a lovely get away.
