East Allington

East Allington is a beautiful village in Devon’s South Hams district. With its pretty traditional thatched Devon cottages and cosy pub, a more relaxing location for cottage holidays in Devon would be hard to find. As you wander around this friendly South Devon community, you’ll notice a beautiful church, village hall, school and playing field. There’s also a fantastic pub, the Fortescue Arms, where roaring fires, local ale and a menu of delicious, locally sourced food can be enjoyed. Miles of serene countryside surround East Allington, while the coast, scattered with sandy beaches, rocky coves and fishing villages, is just a short drive away. The South Devon coast is a paradise for surfing, sailing and spectacular clifftop rambles. For a day at the beach, head to Slapton Sands, a glorious stretch of golden sand, set in a nature reserve, where sandcastle-building, swimming and water-sports are popular.

Holiday cottages in East Allington are ideally located for exploring the beautiful county of Devon. The tranquil country lanes surrounding the village are a magical setting for long strolls, with ancient woodlands and hedgerows bursting with flowers and birdsong. A short distance to the east of the village is Dartmouth, a unique port town, renowned for its restaurants, independent shops and museums. Continuing along the coast, you’ll soon reach Brixham, Paignton and Torquay, quintessentially English resorts where you can while away an afternoon by the sea. If you’re in search of solitude, travel north to Dartmoor National Park, a windswept expanse of open moorland and wooded valleys, where you can walk for miles without seeing another soul. East Allington holiday cottages are also well positioned for experiencing some of the area’s more unusual traditions, such as the annual Whacky Races, when the village’s main road is closed and home-made, soapbox-style go-karts race along a course lined with hay-bales and spectators.
