Staycation in Devon

Planning a staycation in East Devon


Here at Sweetcombe HQ we are keeping a close eye on the latest government guidelines and listening to our local East Devon Council. Of course, public safety is paramount, and, so when it is safe to do so, we, along with all other attractions and local business are looking forward to welcoming you to Devon, with safe social distancing measures in place.

With international travel on hold for the near future, now is the perfect time to plan your UK staycation for when it is safe. Staycations have become increasingly popular in recent years, not only can local holidays cut down on spending and travel time, but they generally make for a more eco-friendly holiday and luckily here in the UK we are not short of natural beauty and diversity, making it the perfect place to explore. So, whether you’re trying to reduce your airmiles or wanting a last-minute holiday in Devon, read on to find out why East-Devon makes for the perfect self-catering holiday.

East Devon has been a popular tourist hot spot since the 18th century, the stunning coastline, warm climate and delicious local cuisine makes it a common favourite amongst UK tourists of all ages. For the adventurers- explore the South West Coast Path and find solitude on a peaceful hidden beach. For the foodies- sample the fresh local produce, cream teas and ice cream. For those in search of culture and discovery- visit Exeter’s fantastic Cathedral and museum. For those after a pet friendly holiday- explore the numerous dog-friendly beaches and last minute dog friendly cottages Sweetcombe has to offer. If you’re looking for more inspiration and ideas, we’ve shared a list of all our personal recommendations for things to do and places to eat on the ‘Discover the Area’ page on our website.

Here at Sweetcombe Cottage Holidays we believe self-catering holidays offer you freedom, space and home comforts so you can relax and go with the easy flow of Devon life. Whether you’re planning a trip with the kids, grand-kids or parents for some quality family time, or you are after a well needed quiet escape, Sweetcombe has a wide range of cottage holidays in Devon for short breaks, weekly trips or even an extended stay to suit your much-deserved holiday.
