For a long time Devon has been one of the most popular destinations for a UK based self catering holiday.
Whether you’re looking to take a break in a rural, wide open area or wanting to experience the popularity of a coastal location you will find an abundance of suitable accommodation to select from.
Located in the South West of England, Devon, compared to the majority of the UK enjoys a warm and sunny climate. Weather is important to us on our holidays and typically, June, July, August and September sees an average high temperature of just under 20℃ – and as you’d expect, winters are generally milder too. This favourable weather is just one of the reasons why Devon is such as magnet for holidaymakers.
Popularity of Devon as a holiday hot spot isn’t just down to the climate though. There are of course so much more on offer in this beautiful part of the UK, including the seemingly endless rolling hills, quaint villages and miles of beaches which offer super surfing conditions.
