Luxury cottages in Devon

Kate A 06 September 2019

Stargazing from the warmth of a soothing hot tub, chattering the night away in front of a crackling wood burner and sinking into the soft sheets of a four-poster bed: those are just some of the indulgent ways you can spend your time in one of our luxury cottages in Devon.

Whether you fancy being the lord of your very own Elizabethan manor for the weekend or would prefer to wake up to the sound of the sea lapping on your own private beach, you are sure to find everything you could ever dream of in our boutique collection.

We have chosen some of our favourite five-star properties in Devon, which all offer a host of special extras to turn your getaway into something extraordinary.

The Big Barn At Halshanger, Ashburton

Sleeps 10 + 2 dogs

The Big Barn At Halshanger

Perfect for the most memorable of holidays in Devon, The Big Barn At Halshanger features a cinema room, games room and spectacular views over the Dartmoor National Park. Beneath its vaulted ceilings and beautiful exposed beams, this grand country retreat invites guests to sink into relaxation on its deep, sumptuous sofas or grab a bowl of buttery popcorn and head to the cinema room for a movie night.

Enjoy wine and conversation on the terrace beneath a clear night sky, do battle on the air hockey table or play a round of snooker together – bedtime doesn’t exist here!

Seaview Retreat, Westward Ho!

Sleeps 6 + 2 dogs

Seaview Retreat, Devon

After a day at the beach, just a short stroll away, this luxurious holiday home in Devon is designed with indulgence in mind. Pad around in socks on the toasty underfloor heating, curl up with a classic on the squishy sofas and watch the sun set over the sea from the balcony.

The highlight of Seaview Retreat is undoubtedly its irresistible bubbling hot tub, where you can sip a glass of something fizzy and delicious beneath a blanket of twinkling stars. It doesn’t get much better than this.

The Lazy Sheep Barn, Exmoor

Sleeps 10 + 2 dogs

The Lazy Sheep Barn, Devon

Grab your nearest and dearest and head to this rural idyll on the edge of the Exmoor National Park. Set within 60 acres of land, The Lazy Sheep Barn offers rest, recuperation and recreation in bucket loads. Chilly, wintry days are made for cosying up around the wood burner with a steaming mug of cocoa after a crisp walk through the frosty grounds.

The Lazy Sheep Barn, Devon

The warmer days of summer are perfect for throwing open the huge bi-fold doors which run the length of the open-plan kitchen and dining area, letting in the fresh country air and mesmerising views. The real draw here is the outside space; dine alfresco on the patio, toast marshmallows on the fire pit and soak in the elevated hot tub.

Puffin's Nest, Hartland

Sleeps 2 + 2 dogs

Puffin's Nest, Devon

Among the rolling green hills that wind their way down to the dramatic clifftops of the Hartland Peninsula and the crashing Atlantic waves below, this luxury cottage in Devon is a therapeutic retreat for two. Sleep deeply in a bed made from driftwood, bathe in a freestanding roll-top bath and dine with the stable door open to the salty sea air.

Puffin's Nest, Devon

As dusk begins to settle, lay out a picnic blanket outside and watch the sun sink below the sea. Don’t worry if it gets a little chilly, a glowing wood burner and a sink-into sofa await your return inside Puffin’s Nest.

Marwood Manor, Axminster

Sleeps 14 + 2 dogs

Marwood Manor, Devon

The ultimate venue for celebrating a special occasion, this elegant 16th-century Devonshire country manor boasts luxuries on tap. Pore through the pages of a novel in the Long Room, host extravagant feasts in the Great Hall and watch the latest blockbuster in the cinema room. And after invigorating walks through 100 acres of surrounding bluebell woods, the inviting lounge is the perfect spot for fireside chats.

Marwood Manor, Devon

Topping off the indulgence, an outdoor pool is the ideal place to spend a leisurely summer’s day, while those feeling active can enjoy a tennis match on the private court. Marwood Manor is also an idyllic base for exploring the best of countryside and coast with the Blackdown Hills and the Jurassic Coast both nearby.

Mulberry, Appledore

Sleeps 10 + 2 dogs

Mulberry, Devon

With stylish interiors that wouldn’t look out of place in the glossies, Mulberry is a favourite choice for a luxury getaway in Devon. Enjoying breathtaking views across Bideford Bay, this coastal escape is a perfect setting for lovers of golden sandy beaches, quaint fishing villages and blustery coastal walks.

Mulberry, Devon

Cosy up on the giant sofas in winter and eat out on the terrace in summer.

West Farleigh Farmhouse, Cadeleigh

Sleeps 12 + 2 dogs

West Farleigh Farmhouse, Devon

A wealth of indoor entertainment is on the menu at this five-star Devon retreat, with a games room complete with music system and bar, and a cinema room with chic mood lighting. For a moment of calm, curl up with a holiday read in the sunroom or snuggle in front of the wood burner in the lounge.

West Farleigh Farmhouse, Devon

To the rear of West Farleigh Farmhouse, a sweeping garden and terrace lends itself perfectly to garden parties. The hot tub will bubble away, while the BBQ sizzles and the fire pit will keep everyone toasty and warm. An adjacent paddock area provides all the space you could need for fun and games.
