Thanks to our proximity to Dartmoor National Park, several beaches and coastal paths, plus a number of great climbing sites, we’re the ideal base for all manner of adventure 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 try 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 Theme Park 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 adventure 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!

Little Dunley Holiday Cottages Reviews


"One week stay in Apple Lodge with family including my two grandsons. The hot tub and pool were a huge hit with us all. Beautiful cottage, large garden, very comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. We've rebooked for next year.

"Stayed in Hazel in August. Lovely accommodation. Very clean and well equipped. Free Wi-Fi that worked well. Very quiet.  Great position to explore Devon with many good attractions and walks close by. So no need for long drives everyday.  Hot tub lovely, clean and maintained well. Lovely patio area and enclosed garden. Very private.  Staff friendly.  Felt the accommodation was very reasonable priced for the time of year. I am certain we will stay again."

"Stayed in Lake View for a kayaking weekend with a group of friends. It's an amazingly warm and cosy cottage, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The games room and swimming pool were both fantastic and kept us entertained when heavy rain meant we couldn't get on the river and the hot tub was a fantastic way to warm up after a day of beach walking. We shall definitely return. Highly recommended."

"What can we say that hasn't been said already. Just returned from a week at Little Dunley Cottages.

The cottage itself was immaculate, the hot tub was perfect after a day out and about. The grounds where peaceful and quiet. A welcome gift was totally unexpected, but appreciated. We really have found a little gem and will be returning.

Well done to all involved at Little Dunley, definitely 5*****"

"We have just spent 4 nights in Oaktree Cottage. A beautiful gesture of a bottle of wine on arrival was so lovely! Such a large open living/dining space, perfect sized bedrooms and exceptionally clean. Modern but with an old twist to enhance the character. Very well presented and well equipped! The swimming pool and games room is soo good! Cannot fault this at all. Have already booked to visit again in October…this time a lodge with a hot tub!"

"Little Dunley Cottages is a real gem... This was our second visit to Hazel Cottage… There is a large screen TV and dishwasher in addition to the cooker, microwave and fridge freezer. Some lovely touches including a bottle of fizz… and a selection of tea, coffee, sugar and milk sachets to get you started. The garden is private and the hot tub is fantastic… It’s a definite draw for us to return again. There is plenty of space with a chance to wonder around the lake or on the local paths etc. Thanks again for another lovely holiday."
