Own a Holiday Home in South Devon

Escape to the English Riviera. With a 22-mile stretch of stunning coastline, you’ll realise owning a holiday home here is a decision you should’ve made years ago!

South Devon

In this peaceful Area of Outstanding Beauty, you’ll find a lively restaurant and bar scene, and a calm bay to enjoy water sports. From Babbacombe to Salcombe, you have time to explore all the little towns along the coast.

For a breath of countryside air, Dartmoor National Park is a short drive from the park. But, if you want to head to a city, Exeter and Plymouth are both only an hour away.

You’ll always be impressed by the events so close to your holiday home. One weekend you could be watching the British firework championships, another you could be learning to find treasure at Brixham pirate festival.

If you want to enjoy holidays year after year in South Devon, take a look at our selection of Hoburne holiday homes. Or, why not book yourself on an open day?
