For families with young children, or those preferring a 'healthy holiday' without the risk of injury, then consider hiring bicycles to explore a Sustrans Cycle route or a cycle-path such as the Tarka Trail in North Devon.  To ensure that a holiday cottage does have exactly what you are looking for, e.g. an outdoor shower for washing the salt of wetsuits and surfboards. use the Visit Website button to go to a cottage's own website for further information. Alternatively, e-mail or phone the owner direct to check that what you want to do on holiday is exactly the activity offered by the cottage.
