Life, in all its richness, has a habit of taking its toll from time to time. Whether it’s the stresses and strains of working life or just fatigue of the familiar, we all need a little break from time to time.

Luckily, it’s 2018 and, within reason, there’s almost nowhere that’s out of our reach. From intimate islands to bustling cities, there’s a whole world to explore out there. So, why would you take a short break in Devon?

It’s a question that’s answered by the remarkable beauty and excitement of Devon, but if you’re still on the fence about taking a short break in Devon, we’ve got a few things which might change your mind.

So, without further delay, here’s why you should take a short break in Devon:

It’s absolutely stunning

Alright, so we might be a little biased, but to our eyes, Devon is amongst the most beautiful places on earth. Quintessentially British but with a European climate, Devon’s endless rolling hills, historic hill forts and castles, dense forest, dramatic coastline and gorgeous villages make for a feast for tired eyes.

It’s not just our opinion either, with South Devon enjoying over 60 miles of land designated as an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering coastline, estuaries and countryside between Plymouth and Torbay.

It’s a beach-bums paradise

Pining to get away from the stress of it all and just relax on a beach somewhere? Well, you don’t need to board a plane for that to happen. Instead, you can enjoy them without even leaving the country.

Devon’s huge variety of beaches are united by one huge factor – their quality. Whether you’re swimming in the blue waters of Dawlish Beach, taking in the rays in the secluded beauty at Hope Cove or surfing at one of Devon’s renowned surfing spots like Woolacombe Beach, Devon has something for you.

It’s incredibly romantic

Romance is something which fills the air in Devon, thanks to the likes of Dartmoor, which evoke a different time of windswept English vistas, Victorian romance and simple, elegant beauty. However, it’s not just the scenery which makes Devon such a romance hotspot.

From Michelin-starred restaurants to intimate towns and villages, there’s no better choice for couples than a Devonshire romantic cottage holiday.

You can bring your pet

Short breaks are often taken on short notice and, for those of us with pets, that poses a significant problem. After all, where are we meant to find care for our dogs at such short notice?

Well, with a short break in Devon, you don’t need to worry about it as there’s no pet passport required and, in many cases, no need to worry about your accommodation. Our range of dog-friendly cottages ensures that all you need to do is pack their favourite toys, a few essentials and put them in the car and you’ll be enjoying your holiday together in no time.

It’s a huge reason why so many of our guests choose us for short breaks and, frankly, there’s no better area to explore with your dog than Devon.
