And if you are considering a trip, holiday cottages in Devon offer a cost-effective and intriguing way of exploring the area.
Family breaks in Devon are very popular because the area provides something for everyone. The beautiful seaside town of Sidmouth offers a traditional experience complete with independent ice cream shops, dinky cafes and stunning scenery, while holidaymakers heading further west can enjoy a modern shopping experience in Exeter. Dartmoor, at over 368 square miles, is a unique rolling landscape that offers peace and tranquillity, perfect for couples looking for a romantic break away.
