Making Memories While Enjoying Holiday Cottages in Devon

When it comes to finding that perfect spot to vacation or just to get a respite, the holiday cottages in Devon have a little something for everyone. Located in the south west of England, sandwiched between Cornwall and Dorset, Devon boasts the only county in all of England also to be sandwiched between two coastlines, one in the north off the Bristol Channel and the other along the south embracing the English Channel.

The holiday cottages in Devon are all sizes and shapes. What is more, they are perfect for groups of any size from individuals to couples to families – you can even bring the family pet! Holiday cottages in Devon are set along the plentiful coastlines, close to hidden coves or scenic cliffs where the English Riviera awaits in Torbay. The unique towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay create a natural harbour where you have a feast of activities to satisfy every interest from arcades to water sports. Here you can also tour the “Agatha Christie Mile” where plaques have been dedicated to her life and works.

Famous for the moors that have been historically highlighted in mysteries from Agatha Christie novels to “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” the national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor offer up the most archaeological treasures in the world dating back to the early Bronze and Iron Ages. While enjoying the holiday cottages in Devon you can let this beautifully windswept country sweep through you among endless acres of rolling plains and purple heather.

Whilst there, partake in the increasingly popular outdoor hobby of Letterboxing, where people follow clues that lead them to the thousands of hidden weatherproof boxes containing a rubber stamp and a notebook. Upon finding the letterbox, an imprint of the stamp is made to take away while a personal stamped impression is left behind on the visitors’ book. Letterboxing goes back as far as the 19th century and now shares a growing popularity with the modern equivalent of geo caching, utilising GPS. Such unique adventures are what help to make your time exploring holiday cottages in Devon a memorable occasion.
