Devon, Somerset & Cornwall Last-Minute Holiday Cottages – Late Availability Self-Catering Holiday Homes 

Looking for last-minute cottages in North Devon? My Favourite Cottages prides itself on offering a fantastic selection of last-minute cottages in Devon (and yes, mainly North Devon) but also in some of the best locations across the South West of England, as well as the Scottish Highlands. Take a look below at our late availability holiday cottages in some fantastic locations such as Cornwall and Somerset.

Sometimes, we just know we need a change in scenery. It could be a planned last-minute holiday in Devon by the sea or a short break booked on impulse to the countryside. You’ve made the decision that you just need to get away last-minute and escape the stresses of ‘everyday’ life.  It could be much needed time to recharge those batteries or spend quality time with loved ones. Acting with a little spontaneity can also be exciting and is often just what is needed to lift our spirits. And, in the very nature of last-minute Devon holiday cottage bookings, it often can even lead to booking somewhere a little different. A real break from the norm. After all, some of the best holidays are booked as a last-minute break.
