Family Holidays in Devon

Family Getaways and Staycations

If family holidays in Devon are your perfect kind of getaway, then we think you’d love a break at Little Dunley Cottages! 

When you have children, it can often be difficult to find a holiday or a hotel that suits the needs of every family member. Many places claim to be ‘child friendly’, but in reality, simply aren’t set up for children, which can make your hard-earned family break feel a bit stressful. When you book a family holiday with us, you can be sure that your holiday cottage will be child friendly and equipped with everything you need to relax in style and comfort.

Designed for Families

If you like to take your family holidays in Devon, then you know the county is jam-packed with beautiful beaches, rambling countryside, amazing attractions and charming towns to explore.  

We pride ourselves on delivering a fun family holiday experience for the whole family, whether you’ve got teenagers, tweens, toddlers or tiny babies. No matter the weather, the age of your children or their interests, there’s an on-site facility to keep you all entertained. For example, our indoor pool is a favourite of children of all ages! As the pool is heated, it can be used all year round and the temperature is great for smaller children too. For older children, our indoor games room is a great place to get together and play a game of pool or table tennis. If you all prefer something a little more active, then a walk across our 24 acres of meadowland is a great way to work up an appetite and burn off some energy.  

With four cosy cottages to choose from, we have properties that can sleep anything from two to six people, so families of all sizes are well accommodated. All of our family-friendly holiday cottages come with a fully equipped and well-appointed kitchen so that you can cook family favourites. Our holiday cottages also have a TV with Freeview and an integrated DVD/CD player, so that the whole family can curl up with a movie of an evening or enjoy cartoons on a Saturday morning. We also have cots and highchairs for our guests to use so that you can travel a little lighter and be safe in the knowledge that the equipment your little ones need is available to you.  

We also offer a number of optional extras (for parents only!) that you can add to your booking to treat yourselves to a spot of rest and relaxation. Choose from massage therapies (including Swedish, deep tissue and Indian head massage), reiki, hot stone therapy, facials, manicures and pedicures, all performed by our trained therapists.

If you’ve decided that Little Dunley is the perfect location for your family holidays, you can book your break and any optional extras directly on our website. If you have any questions or want to learn more about our facilities and services, you can email us through our contact form or call us on 01626 831510.

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
