The West Country region

Gently rolling Devonshire hills & valleys, the stunning coastline and miles of lush English countryside, make our landscape heaven for anyone who loves the great outdoors and the seaside. Exciting tourist destinations, mix fascinating history with a vibrant culture and delectable local food produce will tempt your taste buds.

Choice Cottages has hundreds of carefully selected holiday cottages within the West Country and aims to provide you a stay second to none, whatever your budget, however large your party size.


WALK TO - Instow, a pretty, unspoilt seaside village with large stretches of sandy beaches and dunes. Instow offers a good selection of pubs and restaurants, with a superb local village store and delicatessen. From Instow you can also visit Appledore aboard Misty Blue, the local Ferry (seasonal and subject to weather conditions).

CYCLE TO - Bideford and beyond using the Tarka Trail, the charming fishing villages of Appledore, as well as the towns of Barnstaple and Torrington. The Tarka Trail is a series of footpaths and cycle-paths around north Devon with over 30 miles of the Tarka Trail available to cyclists between Braunton and Meeth, using the old railways of North Devon. The Westleigh Inn is a traditional local pub serving delicious homemade food and local beers with ample parking, with a large child friendly garden and views over the Torridge Estuary.

DRIVE TO - The historic market town of Bideford with its open-air and pannier markets. There are plenty of pubs and a good selection of restaurants. Known for its shopping, the town holds weekly produce and craft markets, as well as a farmers market held on the Quay on alternate weeks. It also has some excellent antique shops. Known locally as drangs, the narrow backstreets and alleyways winding up from the quay and river hide no end of treasure. Take a boat trip to Lundy Island about 12 miles away in the Bristol Channel.

Within driving distance is Atlantic Village outlet shopping centre, Tapeley Park, The Big Sheep, Dartington Crystal, Clovelly, Bucks Mills, and The Milky Way Adventure Park. Just a short hop over the Torridge is the large market town of Barnstaple and the magnificent blue-flag beaches of Croyde, Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, Braunton Burrows and Putsborough all famous surf spots. The Eden Project in Cornwall can also be visited easily within a day.
