Vacation rentals in Devon

Experience city, country and sea in the English county

Devon has a number of different vacation rentals to offer, either in the centre of town or in an idyllic village. But you can also find a vacation rental here in rural areas, close to nature, where you will get unlimited privacy due to the secluded location. There is also the possibility of booking a vacation rental not far from the north or south coast, whereby you will find a number of picturesque towns especially on the south coast.

Holiday in a cottage

In the original Devon region, the cottages are all built in the typical English country house style, where you can enjoy a cosy holiday. In addition to stone cottages, you will also find many holiday apartments in rustic wooden houses. Exclusively equipped vacation rentals in Devon often have a fireplace and sometimes a whirlpool. On cooler days, both special features contribute something to your personal well-being.

Travelers and Activities

Bathing holidays at the world's best beaches

The coastal section between Exmouth and Bournemouth is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because here you can still find countless fossils from times long past.

The holiday region for nature lovers

Make sure you visit the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks. Here you can observe more than a hundred different bird species and red deer in their hustle and bustle. The landscape of Dartmoor is characterised by hills, heaths and moors. The Exmoor National Park also includes a varied rocky coast interspersed with narrow, wooded valleys.

Devon was one of the first areas in England to be settled during the cold period. According to archaeological finds, Dartmoor was inhabited by hunters and collectors of the Stone Age as early as 6000 BC.

1. A detour to the last country castle of Great Britain

Castle Drogo is located near the village of Drewsteignton, high above the canyon of the River Reign. The building of the manor house, built entirely of granite, began in 1910. Architecturally, the building is reminiscent of the castles of the Tudor period and the Middle Ages. But it also has contemporary stylistic elements, which makes the castle a very special architectural ensemble. Worth seeing is also the garden, which is equipped with magnolias, rhododendrons, roses and all kinds of ornamental shrubs.

2. One of the few still active monasteries in the country

The Benedictine Abbey Buckfast Abbey is located in Buckfastleigh, adjacent to the bank of the Dart. The foundation walls of the building date back to the Middle Ages. The square tower was built in the 14th century. Below you can visit the cellar vault from the 11th to the 12th century.

3. Try the national dessert of Devon

Devon-Cream-Tea is the favourite afternoon snack of the people of Devon. The dessert, which consists of warm scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam, is served with tea. A dessert you shouldn't miss at all.
