Rentals by the Beach, in a Town or by a National Park
Devon flaunts a northern coast to the Irish Sea and a southern coast on the English Riviera by the English Channel, with fantastic national parks and landscapes in between. Devon’s northern coast portrays more rugged qualities, featuring some of the highest cliffs in the south of the UK including the infamous, “Great Hangman” cliff in the Exmoor National Park which towers over the coast at just over 300 metres. Towards the north west of Devon lies the summer paradise of Woolacombe Bay. With its long sandy beach with a backdrop of steep cliffs and majestic rolling hills, the bay attracts many types of holiday makers from families looking for a perfect British beach break,
walkers to explore the diverse terrain and surfers to take advantage of the active waves which roll onto the beach. Rolling hills dominate Devon’s Southern landscapes which contain the renowned Dartmoor National Park, with its long endless scenery, enchanting forests and exciting rivers. For holiday makers with pets, this national park is perfect for dogs to run freely and feel at one with nature, with lots of exciting activities on offer for people of all ages.
