Self-catering Holiday Cottages in Devon

On the doorstep of Devon holiday cottages, you will discover towering cliffs, sandy beaches, rolling farmland and wooded combes. Thanks to the region’s wild, natural beauty, it is a paradise for outdoor activities including hiking, wildlife-watching, surfing and swimming. The Southwest Coast Path covers the entire length of the rocky coastline, passing ancient fishing villages and laidback resorts, and providing hikers with the chance to spot dolphins and seals in the Atlantic Ocean. Many of our North Devon holiday lets are moments from the ocean, with easy access to the coast path. From remote, rocky coves to sweeping sandy bays, there are plenty of beautiful spots for days by the sea near North Devon cottage rentals. Inland, the pretty market towns of South Molton, Bideford, Holsworthy and Barnstaple are home to independent shops and farmers’ markets where you can pick up a bag of the freshest local produce. Whether you want to watch the sun set on the Atlantic from a clifftop pub, catch a few waves or discover historic harbours, ruins and gardens, you won’t be disappointed by the variety of self-catering North Devon has to offer.
