With over 200 miles of coastline Devon is littered with sheltered coves, piers and promenades to explore with your children. Alternatively you may prefer the miles of footpaths and the moors for a more relaxing break with older children, or inject a little culture by roaming Exeter Cathedral’s ancient cloisters. Crank up the tempo up at Atlantis Adventure Park in North Devon or Woodland’s Family Theme Park in Dartmouth. There are plenty of cottages close to all the action.
