Stay in Devon

After a self-catering staycay recommended by locals who know the area? Say bon voyage with this Bideford-based holiday company and a choice of over 1200 hand-picked holiday homes.

Weekend Escapes

Isn’t it brilliant when you have a mate who lives where you’re going on holiday? An insider on the spot to recommend where to stay, and all the best secret beaches and eateries to boot?

Based in Bideford and with over 1200 holiday properties on their books, Stay in Devon, is that helpful mate. The North Devon team hand-pick the amazing range of properties, from thatched cottages and seaside apartments to quirky shepherd’s huts and family-friendly homes with a tennis court or swimming pool.

Get online with Stay in Devon and take a scroll. Tempting, isn’t it? With a plethora of images of each home which you can see without even clicking on the individual property’s links (we love this feature), it’s a super-speedy way to find the stay to suit you. Handy filters mean you can narrow it down to really quite niche whims, like whether it’s got a woodburner – or maybe a four poster bed, m’lady? – Sky TV and/or a beach, fishing or drinking hole within one mile.

Bringing the pooch is no problem, as two-thirds of their locations are pet friendly. And can you guess what the most-searched feature is? Yep, a hot tub and a quarter of their homes have ’em.

Want a long golden beach? Head for Woolacombe; Want easy access to both coast and healthy hikes? Try Exmoor National Park; Hankering for a chocolate box village with body-boarding waves on the doorstep? Head to Croyde.

But don’t take it from me (just take me with you!). This knowledgeable Devon team have also created useful travel guides, with oodles of local intel on the best local walks, oarssome spots to kayak, their fave local eateries, and their pick of seasonal events around the county.

Get daydreaming – and book that stay – with an enjoyable scroll through the cottages. Have a great trip!
