Having a holiday or a shortbreak is all about treating yourself, about getting away for a few days to unwind and relax and if you can do that with a big group of your favourite people so much the better. We’ve got top notch holiday homes in the West Country, the Forest of Dean, the New Forest, Monmouthshire, Worcestershire and France; most are in glorious rural locations, but if what you want is a good mix of country and coast then take a look at our luxury group accommodation in Devon.
Devon is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the country, but that’s no surprise because it’s got so much going on, with things for all tastes and all ages, and remember, it’s the biggest county in the UK, so popular doesn’t necessarily mean busy or crowded.
If you like a day in the city both Plymouth and Exeter are very upbeat and vibrant; Plymouth is famous for its historic harbour and of course, Plymouth Hoe where according to legend, Sir Francis Drake played bowls before sailing out to fight the Spanish Armada. Exeter is the administrative centre of Devon and has plenty to see and do; apart from all the shopping on offer, there’s a brilliant museum, the 14th century underground passages, the peaceful quay, and of course, the magnificent cathedral.
If you like to explore or spend time outdoors in the wilds then you’ll appreciate the beauty of Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks. They are quite different in character, yet both offer a varied landscape; Exmoor is softer, with steep wooded hillsides, tumbling river valleys, open fields and wide heather-clad moors where wild ponies feed. It’s a world of narrow country lanes, pretty little villages, and quaint tea shops where you can sit out in the garden and enjoy a traditional Devon cream tea; big fat scones, homemade jam and a gurt dollop of clotted cream; perfick
Dartmoor is more wild, more rugged, with vast craggy moors where you can spot Dartmoor ponies, but there are market towns and villages to browse where you’ll notice the pace of life is unhurried and that’s nice. There are several family attractions too, so it’s well worth bookmarking Dartmoor for a day out when you’re staying at one of our large group holiday cottages in Devon.
The star attraction in Devon is probably the beaches, and with two coastlines, there’s a big choice. You’ll find wide sandy beaches like Bigbury-on-Sea and Torquay, where you can spend the day making sandcastles; there are quiet sheltered coves with rockpools to discover, windswept bays and of course, the surfing beaches on the North Coast, like Croyde and Ilfracombe.
Our luxury group accommodation in Devon is tucked away amidst gorgeous countryside but you won’t have to drive far to the coast or to find family attractions and great places to eat. If the good old British weather lets you down, don’t worry because at our large holiday houses and cottages in Devon you’ll find plenty to keep you amused, which is where the luxury lies; we’ve got swimming pools, hot tubs, games rooms, saunas, BBQ lodges and play areas, so whether the sun has got his hat on or not, you can all have a great time together.
Whether it’s a family holiday, a reunion of friends, a birthday celebration, a hen weekend or corporate stay, you’ll find the perfect self catering accommodation in Devon for 8-16 people with Group Stays. Check availability, book today and come on down!
