Great Value Short Breaks

Everyone deserves a holiday and if you are looking for a great value short break in Devon you will be sure to find one from our selection of hand-picked cottages to suit all budgets.

Devon has so much on offer and is the perfect place to spend a weekend or mid-week break. With its rugged North Devon coastline and more sheltered South Devon coast, two National Parks, Dartmoor and Exmoor, there is plenty of excuse to getaway for a short break. In fact, just a few days away here will leave you refreshed, relaxed and ready to tell family and friends what a fabulous time you have had.

With 450 miles of coastline to explore you really are spoilt for choice if you’re looking for a short break by the sea in Devon. Head to North Devon and discover the long wide sandy beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Westward Ho! These are perfect for picnics and relaxing on or for water enthusiasts there are plenty of schools that will teach you how to surf, kite board, SUP (stand up paddleboard) or kayak.  The North Devon coasts also offers some dramatic coastal walks along the South West Coast Path. Head to Hartland Point, one of the UK’s wildest and remote headlands imaginable with stunning views out to sea.

South Devon has some of the best beaches in England with crystal clear waters, sandy beaches and stunning secluded coves.  For family friendly seaside resorts head to Teignmouth, Torquay or Paignton with their traditional piers, colourful beach huts and numerous attractions. If you are looking for a more peaceful beach to relax on, then you  will be spoilt for choice in South Devon. Award winning beach Blackpool Sands, just along the coast from Dartmouth is an ideal beach for a day out with its sheltered bay, onsite café and water sports hire. If you like to try your hand at surfing then further along the coast is Bantham,  the perfect spot for body boarding or surfing.

The Devon countryside also offers plenty of opportunity to explore the stunning landscape, either on foot or pedal. Exmoor National Park is a fantastic base for a short break, with plenty of cosy cottages hidden away in the rolling landscape. Go on a day hike by following in the footsteps of the romantic poet Samuel Coleridge on the Coleridge way. Stop off in one of the many historic country pubs which serve up hearty meals and local ales. On the North Devon Coast the dramatic Valley of the Rocks near Lynton is an ideal walk for blowing the cobwebs away. 

Cyclists are really spoilt for choice in Devon, with many off road routes meandering across the counties breath-taking countryside. The Tarka Trail stretches over 35 miles from Bideford to Barnstaple as it follows the journey of Tarka the Otter in the classic tail by author Henry Williamson.  For mountain bike enthusiasts Haldon Forest in South Devon is the place to head for, where there is a range of bike trails to suit every ability.
