6 reasons to take advantage of a cosy autumn cottage holiday
18 September 2020
With holidays in the UK more popular than ever and summer coming to a close, there’s no need to wait until next year to make the most of a break away. September through to Christmas is the time to explore the delights of crunchy autumn leaves and golden-hued sunsets, hearty pub food and uninterrupted family time.
Our cottage holidays at Cofton present the perfect opportunity to escape the everyday without sacrificing any of your favourite home comforts. If you’re not quite convinced, here are 6 reasons to take advantage of a cosy autumn cottage holiday this season.
#1 Indulge in a private, quality cottage break
We don’t scrimp on quality, so you can rest assured your escape will be comfortable in every way. Each stylish and modern country kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, hob and oven, and you don’t need to worry about feeling the autumnal chill as there’s central heating throughout too. Some of our cottages even come with hot tubs for if you want to add a touch of additional luxury to your quality cottage holiday.
Should you be blessed with clear skies, each cottage also has a private patio area with outdoor furniture, so an alfresco lunch is not out of the question. You could even opt for a barbecue!
No matter what delights you’ve experienced during the day, retiring back to one of our self-catering cottages is a rewarding prospect, and once you’re snuggled up amongst the Egyptian cotton linen, you’re sure to enjoy a restful night’s sleep.
#2 Soak up some spectacular scenery
We couldn’t be more excited to share our incredible location with all our visitors, and our coast and country cottages are perfectly placed for you to take advantage of some of the best scenery Devon has to offer.
From listening to the waves crash upon the shore during a refreshing walk on the sand, to an adventure on two wheels exploring the woodland, you can do as much (or as little) as you please. If you’d rather just relax and not venture too far from your cottage, you can simply admire the views of the surrounding hillsides before heading to the on-site country pub for a fulfilling homecooked dinner.
#3 Just take a weekend out
If it’s a short break that takes your fancy – come on down. We offer 3-night holidays which will see you through from Friday to Sunday, providing an idyllic weekend cottage break for you and your loved ones. A weekend away offers just enough time to take a dip in the indoor pool and open up your pores in the sauna, explore the rugged and sandy coastline, play at the arcade and indulge in a pub lunch or two. There are of course plenty of other activities and events we organise that are perfect to entertain yourselves during a weekend cottage break, no matter how kind (or unkind) the autumnal weather.
#4 Your pets are welcome too
We know that sometimes a holiday isn’t the same without the entire family, pooches included. We also appreciate that our location is pretty spectacular, and dogs love the outdoors whether rain or shine. That’s why we have a selection of pet-friendly holiday cottages to ensure your autumn break is fully inclusive! It’s time to make some memories exploring the golden, red and brown footpath of fallen leaves through the woodland trails before retiring to your cosy cottage for a well-earned brew.
#5 Unrivalled peaceful relaxation
If your everyday life tilts towards hectic, you can come to our country cottages to enjoy all the peace and quiet you could possibly want. As self-catering cottages, you can if you wish just spend the week or weekend improving your cooking skills, reading, relaxing, and drinking prosecco in the hot tub – your very own private bolthole to unwind and de-stress.
If you’re travelling as a couple, Estuary View or The Linney are wonderful choices, both with private hot tubs.
#6 You don’t need to wait around, grab a last-minute cottage
If you’re tempted to either seek solace or make some new fun family memories during an autumn cottage escape, be sure to check out our range of last-minute holiday deals. Not only does it mean saving money on your next UK cottage break, but it also means you get to go sooner!

Some of your kind words...
A brilliant stay as always. We stayed in a cottage this time which was beautiful and very well equipped. Lots of lovely little touches with a welcome hamper and lots of board games. Hubbie was well impressed with the huge TV too. Loved the courtyard and we were lucky enough to have the weather to BBQ 2 of the days. All the staff from reception to the shop to the entertainment were friendly and very accommodating of both my girls. Used the chippy which has recently changed hands and the food was still great. There is lots to do, loved the swimming, the zip wire, the park and walk in the woods and around the fishing lake. Have to be honest though we missed the caravan...... will definitely be back, hopefully in the Fernworthy van with the hot tub.
Had an amazing weeks holiday. The park was immaculate, the outdoor pool was spotless and the cleaning blocks were cleaned regularly. All the staff were very helpful and the shop on site was reasonably priced. We went with two kids (aged 6 and 7) and our dog, the kids were never bored and had an amazing holiday. We will definitely be returning next year!
My family and I stayed for 5 nights in July, aged between 13 and 40 and we all had a brilliant family stay. The teenagers loved the outdoor pool and the woods and we all loved the donkeys. I’ve been coming here since I was a child and it’s still got a lovely relaxing atmosphere and has all the facilities you could want for a camping holiday. I must say the fish and chip shop is the best we have ever had at a holiday park, reasonable prices and good sized portions. We have booked to come back again on 25th August for a week and can’t wait!
I visited when my relatives came over from Canada and fell in love. I was lucky enough to stay for a week last August for my sons 2nd birthday. It has got to be one of my favourite places to go. Absolutely beautiful, quiet, good facilities, lovely restaurants. The staff are outstanding. I can't wait to come back again this year!
Stayed in campervan for a weekend. Great campsite good location, plenty of things for all to do. Great fishing lakes all in a short walk through the woodland to the lovely Dawlish Warren and Dawlish. Couldn't fault.

We have had a wonderful experience, the site is very clean, ALL the staff were friendly and helpful especially the bar supervisor, entertainment was second to none, we'll 100% return...
The Warren Family
I just want to say how impressed my fellow Motorhomers and Caravaners were with the welcome and service we received during our stay. Staff in the office were polite and helpful at all times. Scott the restaurant manager was most accommodating when I enquired about reserving space for 25 to 30 of us for lunch after a walk. The service in the restaurant was speedy the food hot and varied. We were very pleased with the standards. Staff in the restaurant were cheerful and polite and helped make our meal most enjoyable. We had such a good time that we will be returning again next year for our Xmas Rally.
The best holiday park we've been to in our motorhome. Our children aged 2 and 4 loved it. Great facilities, entertainment and activities in one of the best parts of Devon!
Delicious fish and chips, friendly and helpful staff and delightful woodland.

We usually camp 3 times a year and hire a caravan after the Christmas break at Cofton, and will continue to do so. We thoroughly recommend staying there. Great for families or just the 2 of you.
