Our range of holiday cottages in Devon are brimming with character, lovingly restored and all located on or near land in the care of the National Trust.

Your Devon Cottage will be located in some of the most unbelievable locations and close to National Trust properties and gardens.

The county of Devon stretches from the Bristol Channel in the north to the English Channel in the south. In the north of the County lies Exmoor, once home to a Royal Hunting Forest. Now Exmoor is a national park with stunning wildlife and areas of outstanding flora and fauna.

At the Edge of the Bristol Channel, at the most Northerly tip of Devon stands The Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage. Offering unrivalled views of this cottage can sleep 10 and is popular with large families. Watch the skies and you may see dolphins, porpoises and Gannets at high tide.

Further inland lies West Challacombe Manor, and it’s smaller neighbour West Challacombe Cottage. The Cottages share commanding views of the surrounding countryside with the Manor House boasting a 16th century Coat of Arms in the porch.

Clovelly on the North Western Tip of Devon offers three coastguard cottages (1, 2 & 3) a few minutes from the pebbly Peppercombe Beach.

Six miles outside Barnstaple sits Woolley Lodge a distinctive gardener’s lodge on the outer edge of the 600 year old Arlington Court.

Dartmoor National Park has been designated the first dark sky reserve in Europe, making it an ideal place for a Devon Holiday Cottage for stargazers. At Warcleave Cottage, in Chagford you can get away from it all with a cottage nestling on the edge of woodland with the River Teign at the bottom of your garden.

If you’d prefer the South Coast sunshine we have cottages in South Devon and the English Riviera. The Mill Cottage at Wembury Beach is literally ‘on the beach’ and Coleton Barton 1 and 2  offer views across the estuary at Coleton Fishacre.

Around Exeter, the ‘capital’ of Devon we have a selection of beautiful thatched holiday cottages including Forest Cottage in the heart of Ashclyst Forest on the Killerton Estate.

Staying with the National Trust means your money is going directly back towards protecting, restoring or opening up buildings and landscapes for everyone to enjoy.
