Cottages with a Hot Tub or a Swimming Pool
Few areas quite compare with North Devon. With its long sweeps of sandy beaches, ruggedly beautiful coastline and wild moorland, it’s a landscape for those who love to get outside. And when you’ve spent a day out in the elements, what better way is there to relax than in your very own hot tub? If you’re holidaying with children, we guarantee they’ll love it too.
Alternatively, if you’re keen to use the holiday as a means of shedding a few pounds or your children love a dip, perhaps a swimming pool is the answer.
Our selection of cottages features a range of hot tubs, indoor and outdoor pools. Some of the swimming pools may be shared facilities with other holiday cottage users, but this might be a great chance to meet and make friends with other visitors.

What are the best ways to enjoy the landscape and coastline of North Devon?
Perhaps you’ve all started the day with a swim and you’re now looking forward to a day outdoors. Or maybe you’re planning on finishing the day in the hot tub – possibly accompanied by a glass of wine – and want to earn that treat. Whatever your reasons, a walk or a bike ride are great ways to get fit – and experience the best of North Devon.
The whole of the North Devon coastline is mapped out on the South West Coast Path, which includes heart-pounding treks along moorland and clifftops, as well as gentler jaunts along beaches and through wooded valleys. For the views, the cliffs to the east of Ilfracombe – some of the highest in England – are hard to beat, offering magnificent glimpses of the Bristol Channel. There are also lovely walks up the wooded valleys of the north coast, including the Heddon and East Lyn rivers.
If cycling’s more your thing, there are plenty of rides on Exmoor, from bracing road biking across the top of the park, to challenging off-road treks along rivers and through woodland. For something a little gentler, try the level and traffic-free 21-mile Tarka Trail, running between Braunton and Meeth. Created along the route of a closed railway, it follows the River Taw for most of its route. If you haven’t brought your own bikes, the whole family can hire them at Barnstaple station from Tarka Trail Cycle Hire.
