Devon South CoastHoliday cottages near Devon South Coast
If you're heading south from Exeter to a cottage by the sea in Devon, you'll find thirty miles of stunning coast to enjoy; dramatic red cliffs, acres of sand dunes, pebbled beaches and endless rock pools. Exmouth is a great place to hire a holiday cottage and a good starting point, from which you can explore both the Exe Estuary and the surrounding coast. As one of the few seaside towns with its own rail link from Exeter, you can even get to Exmouth without a car - great if you're coming by plane or if you want to cover extra ground on a cycling holiday in Devon. The train journey from Exeter also offers great views of the Exe Estuary.
Exmouth is proud of its two miles of golden sands, which are good for swimming and sandcastles in the summer. There's a traditional promenade with swingboats and crazy golf. Take a stroll from the harbour to Orcombe point and enjoy wonderful views of Dawlish and Torbay. Self-catering accommodation in Exmouth includes seafront flats to suit couples or larger houses for families and groups; many of these are within easy reach of the seafront, with excellent sea views.
