Often, when people think of North Devon, they think of a cosy holiday cottage, perhaps thatched, covered in roses or with a warming woodburning fire - and if that's what you're looking for, then we can certainly help. We've a fabulous range of cosy holiday cottages, dotted around the stunning North Devon coastal villages of Croyde and Woolacombe.

This is a beautiful area (in fact, it's officially an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), and most people who come here want to get out into the great outdoors and explore: long walks out to Baggy Point or Crow Point for the stunning panoramic sea views; cycle rides on the 180 miles Tarka Trail cycle path; surf lessons or paddleboarding sessions. Or perhaps your style is more laid back and you prefer a delicious meal in a traditional pub or gentle stroll on one of the many beautiful coves and sandy beaches. Whichever, you'll be happy to return to a comfortable, cosy holiday cottage at the end of a fun day.
