Cottages Holidays in Devon for Couples
Couples have the greatest opportunity to have those fabulous holidays and weekends away in Devon, especially those without responsibilities and ties. The children may have grown up and fled the nest and now it's time for a great deal more leisure and enjoyment in your retirement.
Keeping fit is something that is high on the agenda for pensioners; keeping active and mobile keeps people youthful and able to get the most out of life. Devon is a good place to visit because of the miles of country paths for interesting walks, gardens to visit and admire, all the while walking and getting that much needed exercise without even realising it.
A beach is a lovely place to walk at any time of year unless it's blowing a gale. There are sandy and shingle beaches such as the one at Beer in Devon that are never that busy and ideal for a gentle stroll by the sea.
All you need to do is to find a self-catering country cottage that sleeps 2 and go to discover and enjoy that particular area of Devon. You may wish to rent a one bedroom self-catering accommodation or a 2 bedroom if you would like that extra space to spread out. With really tiny cottages, it is often useful to have a spare room for the luggage and coast. Most of us in England are wary enough of the weather to be prepared for all seasons and take suitable clothing and footwear for any eventuality.
Devon is superb for a couples break, stay somewhere lovely, go out for dinner or afternoon tea, do a little shopping, visit a National Trust or English Heritage property for a look back at history in Devon. The National Trust Windmill in Devon offers an interesting tour and the most fabulous flower-filled garden to appreciate.
There are always options for some rather more energetic activity, such as cycling in those peaceful country lanes. Some cottage owners provide bicycles for guest use or you may wish to take your own. A really exciting experience may be to take to the skies in a hot air balloon and obtain a bird's eye view of Devon from on high?
Dog owners can rest assured that there are plenty of suitable pet-friendly holiday lets for 2 in Devon as well.
