The Devon region

Devon has long been a favourite destination among all walk of life and for good reason. There is everything here, follow winding country lanes to pretty thatched villages and market towns. Saunter round the historical city of Exeter and visit its beautiful cathedral. The south west coastal path is one of the most beautiful stretches or coast in the world and a lot of it is in Devon.

Exmoor has its own powerful atmosphere, with a history going back millions of years. Its combination of rugged coastline with dramatic cliffs, ancient woodland and expanses of open moorland roamed by wild ponies and deer proves an enduring attraction. It is home to many rare and important species of plants, birds and animals, a treat for all nature lovers.

If your taste is for the sea, North Devon has some of the finest sandy beaches in the British Isles. Woolacombe, a blue-flag beach, was recently voted one of the world's top ten. Just around the headland, Croyde, a Seaside Award beach, is famous for surfing, while Saunton's sands stretch as far as the eye can see.

The pretty harbours at Clovelly, Ilfracombe and Lynmouth make a delightful contrast to the spectacular coastline, notably the Hartland peninsula where the coastal path follows dramatic cliffs and tiny coves.

Take a trip on the Tarka line, visit the Exmoor zoo, a dinosaur park or gnome reserve, walk round beautiful gardens or enjoy the peace of nature reserves -- there is something here for every interest.

North Devon's rich diversity of landscape and attractions make it a guaranteed favourite with visitors - families, couples or singles - for a holiday or short break at all times of year.


Croyde is renowned for it's beautiful sandy beach and surf break but also its cream teas and ice cream shops. Three pubs, restaurants, water park, surf shops and even an art gallery give you plenty to do when you're not on the beach or up on the moors. it is picture postcard pretty with and abundance of thatched cottages and a stream running through the village down to the sea. Plenty of rock pools and sand dunes to keep adventurous children happy rain or shine or just rent a board and wet suit from the local shop and have a dip in the ocean!

"Great family holiday for those with teenagers"

We had a lovely week. Property is on main path from town to beach so we were able to carry surf boards from the cottage down to the beach, 15 mins, which had been hired just around the corner. Was great to have an activity that teenagers were interested in. Not really anything for them to do in the evenings as Croyde so small but they were happy to chill out. As someone else mentioned was a surprise to have the pub play area on the other side of the wall but didn't cause us any problems. Plenty of places to eat and fantastic ice cream from surf shop. The cottage does look over the owners garden and outdoor sitting area is ajoined to their garden. I was a little worried that we might feel like we were intruding but as it was we didn't make much use of outdoor area. Had a great time and hope to return again.
