Cottage Holidays In Devon That Won’t Break The Bank

.tags With the cost of flights escalating and the Euro not going quite as far any more, many people are opting to spend their holidays at home in the UK, a growing trend that has been dubbed a ‘stay-cation’. The UK has a lot to offer and we have some fantastic historical and cultural attractions and literally hundreds of areas of natural beauty waiting to be explored.

The West Country has traditionally been a popular UK destination for holiday makers looking to get away from the city and spend a few days on either the beach or the countryside. Devon is a particularly popular destination as it is more accessible than Cornwall but still has the beautiful beaches in the north and the aptly named ‘English Riviera’ of the south.

It is also ideal for those who are not looking to be totally isolated from civilisation as Devon has some great cities such as its capital Exeter. Exeter has a vibrant night life and great shopping but is still close to the beaches and great outdoors. Devon also has the stunning Dartmoor national park, one of Britain’s largest and wildest areas of open country. The National Park covers an area of 368 square miles and provides an ideal environment for outdoor activities and sports such as hiking, cycling or just going for a beautiful walk and picnic. Dartmoor is also renowned for its abundant cultural heritage as it has some of the oldest and best archaeological sites in Western Europe.

A great way to make trips to Devon affordable is to hire a cottage. Cottage holidays in Devon are ideal for the whole family as you have the freedom of your own space and can live by your own time scale. You can come and go as you want and make your own meals in the comfort of a home away from home. They are affordable and you can often rent cottages with up to eight or ten bedrooms, ideal for going away with another family and all the kids. Cottage holidays provide you with a perfect base to explore the activities and delights of the West Country.

Alternatively you can rent some beautiful and secluded cottages that are ideal for a romantic break. What better way to spend a holiday then indulging in beach walks, country pub lunches and evenings in front of the fire with your other half?

Summer or winter, rental is an ideal solution for getting rid of those work time blues without having to spend a fortune and travel to far from home.
