Recommend me some holiday cottages Devon way…
Just pondering whether to head to Brittany for a weeks holiday start of June or stay in merry England and hit the south coast.
Would be about £1k for flights and accommodation to stay in Brittany so something in the £600 – £1k would be fine and would hopefully work out a bit cheaper whilst allowing us take take the bikes as well.
Never been to the south coast so its all new ground to me. Any areas to good to miss?
Would be two adults, 5 year old, 7 year old and a dog….Posted 3 years agobrassneckSubscriber
Friendly but not intrusive owners, nice beaches nearby (Bigbury, Mothecombe when ope, the closest Wonwell is OK but Mothecombe across the river is better).
Cycling not great from the door, lots of very narrow lanes, wouldn’t risk it with my kids, but Dartmoor is not far, and Haldon Forest (Exeter) doable depending on how keen the family are (it’s about a 45 minute drive).
Pub was good last time I went too, a great summer evening place (The Dolphin).
Though if I could do Brittany by flying for a grand I think I might do that for a change, so post your other option 🙂Posted 3 years agowillardMember
We stayed here last year. Working farm, dog friendly, near a superb beach and some good running nearby.Posted 3 years agoSprocketJockeyMember
My ears were burning 😀
We’ve got plenty of dog friendly cottages on the books. Out of office today but let me know a bit more about what you’re after in terms of dates and location (eg coast or country….in a village or remote…riding from the door?) and will take a look.Posted 3 years agobent udderMember
Two bed flat in Dartmouth – sleeps four in a double and a twin room. View is *amazing* through more than 180 degrees, from the Naval College to the mouth of the river and the castle. Not hugely suitable for babies or toddlers due to the steep staircase up to the bedrooms and bathroom.Posted 3 years agonevisthecatSubscriber
Coastguard’s Cottage in Newton Ferrers. Should find it on Owners’ Direct.
Stunning 18th century cottage overlooking the estuary and a very friendly owner who will meet you there and explain that yes, you do have to row across the river to get to it. There is a bridleway network on the headland to the rear and some great walks and fishing from the door.
However, it is well worth it and comedy gold rowing up to the pub in the evening and even funnier rowing back……..Posted 3 years agoqwertyMember

Ahhhh yes, happy days of coming back from the pub slightly pished! Used to take the Dory up the estuary to South Pool (Salcombe) to the Millbrook. There was always a bit of a rush back to the boats as the tide started to go, it’s a long way up the estuary there!
Gunning back down, with the outgoing tide, and only a torch to guide us was always fun!
Did the same on the Helford a couple of years ago, just as a storm rode in. Only just made it inside in time!Posted 3 years ago
