Holiday Properties in Devon

With many people choosing to stay in the UK for their holiday why not have a look at the wonderful properties we have in Devon. Ever popular with families looking for a classic 'bucket and spade' style break we have plenty to choose from here at Group Stays for groups of all shapes and sizes.

Large Group Accommodation Ideas

Perfect large group accommodation in Devon can be a bit hard to find, but we have it covered. The properties on our books are ideal for large family get togethers. Having facilities at the properties to keep everyone entertained is important and these properties are no exception. Indoor pools, play equipment and games rooms. What more could you want to keep everyone happy on holiday?

Berry House

Head to Berry House for all your group accomodation needs. Sleeping 16 people in style this stunning Georgian farmhouse has an indoor swimming pool heated to a balmy 30 degrees by a bio mass boiler.

Elegant rooms and a garden with views stretching across the valley it also has some brand new children's play equipment to keep the kids entertained. If you are thinking about days out then why not head to nearby Wimbleball Lake and take part in some water sports or just a leisurely stroll around the lake. 

Newhouse Farm Cottages

Newhouse Farm Cottages has it all! 9 self catering cottages mean that you could have a group of 47 people here quite comfortably. However, if your family isn't quite that big then how about renting a few cottages side by side and enjoy the ability to holiday together without falling over one another.

Make use of the indoor heated swimming pool and extensive grounds that include fantastic childrens play equipment. Jump in the car one day and head off to the North Devon coast for a spot of surfing at nearby Croyde or Saunton Sands. 


Sleeping up to 12 people in 5 bedrooms Wayside is pretty special. The games room provides hours of entertainment as does the huge covered swimming pool.

Spacious and luxurious Wayside ensures a comfortable stay. Venture into the Blackdown Hills for a bit of adventure or pop off to the City of Exeter for a little bit of retail therapy before coming back and lounging by the pool. 

Small and Cute Ideas

We don't all want to go away as a large group, some of us prefer to holiday on our own. Taking the family away for a few days can allow you to spend quality time together in each others company without day to day distractions. A bit of, dare I say it, 'team bonding' can do all families good from time to time. Make some special memories with the perfect holiday rental from Group Stays. 

Cherry Tree Cottage

Location, location, location! An ideal village property yet only 5 miles from the City of Exeter is Cherry Tree Cottage. Beautifully refurbished it maintains a charm that is totaly unique.

The gorgeous garden will encourage you to sit and relax after a busy day cycling, boating or sightseeing. Guests are surrounded by plenty to do near Exeter, try Haldon Hill for some walking, bring the boat and sail from Topsham or have a wander around Exeter Quay which is just a few miles away.
