4 bedroom cottage in Devon, England
September 2019

We had a fantastic holiday. Location is close enough to walk into town but also quiet in the evening. Parking is an issue. We used the large long stay by the harbour hotel which was £25 for the week or 6 for the day but is handy for the beach.

4 bedroom cottage in Devon, England
September 2018

I loved the house, as the weather was horrible we spent a lot longer in than I had intended. We had a few problems which got sorted eventually, unfortunately the housekeeper was on holiday so communication was bad but probably a one off. I woul defitatly stay there again.

4 bedroom cottage in Devon, England
October 2017

So central to the town, it is a perfect location. Three ladies on our own we did find the left hand garage door hard to get open. Just needs a bit planed off the bottom. Apart from that we had a lovely stay.

4 bedroom cottage in Devon, England
August 2017

We had a fantastic stay at Heydons House which was fully equipped with everything we needed & more! The house was surprisingly bigger than we thought so a bonus, our children 10 & 7 yrs loved the space! We had no problems getting our car in the garage (Honda CRV), for convenience did use the nearby Connaught Gardens Car Park which was very reasonably priced and a short pleasant stroll, also a perfect excuse to pop into the Clocktower Tea Rooms definitely worth a visit. Perfect location in easy walking distance of town, beach, swimming pool, cinema & children's play park. We would love to stay again!

Travel guide

Holiday cottages in Devon

Wild moors, rugged coastal paths, pub gardens in scenic English villages, cream teas, sand between the toes – a cottage in Devon is the ideal setting for a wholesome holiday in the great outdoors. Devon boasts two National Parks; Exmoor with its remarkable moorland, oak woods, and striking coastline, and open, untamed Dartmoor with its Neolithic monuments, granite tors and wild ponies.

If you are drawn to the glorious shoreline of Devon, then the north coast towns of Woolacombe or Croyde are the perfect spots to learn to surf in the Atlantic swell and enjoy the sandy beaches. While you are there, walk the Tarka Trail or visit the black leopard at Exmoor Zoo. On the south coast, nicknamed the English Riviera, take in the maritime history of harbour towns Torquay and Brixham. Hunt for fossils whilst walking the Jurassic Coast pathways, visit the Norman cathedral in Exeter or sample cider in the laid-back market town of Totnes. Mingle with the yacht-owners in low-key and picturesque Salcombe, or go kayaking on the river Dart.
