Active Holidays at Little Dunley Cottages

Activity Breaks in Devon

You probably already know that we’re the perfect spot for a relaxing country break, but did you know that we’re also the ideal base for active holidays too?  

Our four cosy and comfortable country cottages provide the perfect home-from-home for adventurers, explorers and daredevils alike!

Getaways for Adventurers and Explorers

Thanks to our proximity to Dartmoor National Park, the coast and a number of great climbing sites, we’re the ideal base for all manner of active holidays!

Whether you’re planning to kayak in the rapids of the River Dart, surf in Bantham, hike the Tarka trail or cycle the Exe Estuary trail, there’s no shortage of great activities on offer in the local area. There are also plenty of places in Devon where you can play golf, go horse riding or even go zorbing and paintballing!

If you’re visiting us with little ones, there are also a number of great kids adventure parks within a short drive, such as Crealy, Woodlands and the Ultimate Adventure Centre – a Ninja Warrior style adventure course for the whole family.

If you’re taking a rest day and plan to remain on-site, there are still plenty of great activities to keep you busy! We have two fishing lakes (stocked with carp) for our guests to practice angling, a heated indoor pool, an all-weather tennis court, a shared sauna and games room, equipped with a pool table, table tennis and other activities.

We also offer a number of optional extras available to purchase, so that you can incorporate a little rest and relaxation into your active holiday. With massage (including Swedish, deep tissue and Indian head massage), reiki and hot stone therapy as well as facials, manicures and pedicures, you can soothe those aching muscles before you embark on your next adventure!

SOME LOVELY COMMENTS 

"The cottages were so relaxing and beautiful you don’t need to bring everything as they have everything readily available with Co-op and Tesco so local. It’s a brilliant location for kids - the games room and swimming pool offer hours of entertainment for kids. I spent the whole weekend with the kids there and didn’t feel like we had to leave. Really, really enjoyed my stay."

"Lovely cosy and quiet place to relax with the family. Games room and pool much appreciated and lots of thoughtful touches. Passes the fully-equipped kitchen standard with sharp knives, plenty of implements, a wok and even a pizza cutter! Would return."

Sarah, Cheshire

"Had a lovely time. The cottage was just perfect with all the comforts. Really enjoyed the log fire and how clean it was. The owner was very helpful and was there to help straight away."

Sonia

"We had a wonderful holiday in Oaktree Cottage and will definitely back! We took full advantage of the pool which we had to ourselves the majority of the time - the kids had a great time and their swimming improved amazingly! The cottage is "in the middle of nowhere" but a short drive away there is a huge amount to do... Thank you for a lovely holiday!"

Kate, Tunbridge Wells
