The West Country region
Rural idyll in all its many varieties from the sheep crossing the road on Dartmoor to the cricketers on the village green. The coast is good too. From the wide swathes of beach in north Devon to the sheltered coves in the south, with the big open skies over Dartmoor in between, there are plenty of pieces of Devon to fall in love with.
Holidays in Devon range from surfing havens on the north coast, through dog friendly countryside retreats, to south Devon cottage holidays on the seafront. From Lynton and Lynmouth in North Devon, through Dartmoor to Salcombe and Start Point on the English channel, Devon is England’s only county with two coastlines. With the mass of rural landscape between, Devon is the fourth largest English county.
The north coast is exposed to the Celtic sea with surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Saunton and Westward Ho!, and a self catering holiday cottage in Devon has the best of everything. With seaside resorts for deck chairs and icecreams, high moorland for hiking and horizon views, valleys of lush greenery, cities such as Plymouth for shopping, and rural villages for quaint customs, Devon has it all.
East Devon covers an approximately triangular area from Axminster in the east to Cullompton in the north. It then follows the M5 west down to Exeter and the seashore back east to Axminster. Within this triangle are the towns of Honiton, Sidmouth, Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Ottery St Mary, Seaton and Colyton as well as miles of wonderful coastline and acres of magnificent countryside.
The county receives warm summers with occasional hot spells and cool rainy periods. Winters are generally mild and the county often experiences some of the mildest winters in the world.
Sidmouth’s attraction lies not only in the unspoilt and less commercialised town but also in the natural beauty of the coastline, countryside and the gardens which more than once have earned it the ‘Britain in Bloom’ award.
Each year in August‚ Sidmouth hosts the celebrated Folk Festival Week‚ when we see vibrant colour and listen to music from around the world. Laughter and smiles are to be seen everywhere.
Beautiful gardens and leisurely walks‚ Regency history and fine hotels‚ clean beaches and friendly shops. it’s all here in this lovely seaside town that nestles beneath majestic red cliffs and the green hills of the glorious Sid Valley. The area is one of Britain’s loveliest, for relaxing in, walking around the town, or touring more extensively in the West Country.
In December 2001, the East Devon and Dorset coastline was granted World Heritage Site status. Sidmouth is now a major gateway to the Site. UNESCO called the Jurassic Coast, a 95-mile stretch of coast from Exmouth to Swanage, an outstanding example, representing a major stage of earth’s history and record of life.

"Magnolia is the best cottage we have stayed in by far"
This is our second time in Magnolia Cottage and the standard was again 5 star. Cleaned to a very high standard with all the amenities we needed. The location is perfect as you can walk from the cottage down to the town and promanade ( only 5 mins.)
We highly reccomend this property.

"Excellent property in lovely gardens"
I think this was our 7th visit to Magnolia. We keep returning because it is always spotlessly clean and very comfortable and well equipped. Although Magnolia is very central for the beach, restaurants and shops in Sidmouth, it is very quiet and peaceful and is set in lovely gardens. Having an allocated parking space is very helpful in such a central location. The hosts Selwyn and Geoff are on hand to provide advice on where to visit locally and couldn't be more helpful.

"Home comforts away from home!"
A short break in the middle of the winter - this beautiful property is cosy, comfortable, well-equipped, warm, spotlessly clean, quiet yet only a couple of minutes' walk from the beaches and town centre - in brief, excellent for a relaxing time. Kitchen well equipped (a minor problem during our visit with the hot water in the kitchen, but this was due to work being undertaken at the time elsewhere on the property and didn't affect the showers in any way - which were, by the way, the best I've experienced in the UK with great water pressure). The beds are equipped with hard matresses for those who hate the soft sort.We hope to be back during the warmer weather to enjoy the beautiful garden. - Many thanks to Selwyn!
