Devon Cottages with a Woodburner or Open Fire

There is something very alluring about relaxing in front of a fire whether it’s a modern-style woodburner or a gorgeous old-fashioned open fire with a mantlepiece in a cosy thatched-roof character cottage. It doesn’t really matter what time of year you’re choosing from our luxurious range of holiday lodges in Devon or dog-friendly character cottages, we know that, secretly, you’ll probably want to light the fire whatever the weather! 


Going back in time, sitting around a fire has always been the focus of a group gathering and nothing much has changed. Even though, in those days, it was more of a necessity due to a lack of modern heating systems, it was the place to be. If you’ve always liked sitting around a camp fire or have a chiminea or fire pit at home then we’d strongly recommend selecting a cottage with an open fire or woodburner for a real home-from-home holiday. 


Our properties are all across Devon so you can take your pick of location. Whether you’re into soaking up the sea air or are more a fan of countryside walks we’re sure you’ll find that one of our Devon Cottages is perfect for you and your family or friends. Choose from stunning locations such as the North Devon Coastal towns of Woolacombe and Ilfracombe or head South towards Dartmouth, Brixham and Paignton.  


Lighting a fire at the end of an active day on holiday can be really enjoyable and a great way to ease yourself into a lazy evening whatever the season. Whether you’ve been wrapped up on a cold winter’s day or have been enjoying some of the fantastic sports that Devon has to offer such as kayaking, windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding to name but a few, you’ll easily get into the routine of putting your feet up at the end of the day in front of a roaring fire in the cooler months. All before you’re out for the count and ready to get up and do it all again the next day! That’s what holiday memories are made of…


If you’re not an open fire fan then opt for one of our properties with a woodburner – they look amazing in both traditional and new properties depending on your own style. Choose from seaside town apartments right up to large detached properties with stunning sea or countryside views. Take your pick, book your cottage and get yourself ready for winding down with the warming glow of a real fire.

Looking for a Dog-Friendly Devon Cottage?

Dogs and open fires go hand in hand or, should we say, paw in paw. The quintessential picture postcard Devon cottage holiday is of a thoroughly worn out dog (or two!) stretched out on a fluffy rug in front of a roaring fire while you curl up on a sinky sofa. Explore the best of Devon whether you are looking for dog-friendly beaches, moorland walks or family-friendly walking trails.  If this is your idea of heaven (or you think this is your dog’s idea of heaven) we’re sure to be able to match you to your perfect property.
