Romantic Devon holiday cottages for Valentine’s

Escape for a romantic break in Devon this Valentine’s Day. It falls on a Friday in 2014 so it’s easy to get away, and what better way to spend it than holed up in a cosy Devon holiday cottage together? Many holiday cottages also offer discounts at this time of year so there’s money to be saved too – but we suggest you don’t tell your Valentine that and perhaps spend the money on champagne …

We’ve pulled together six of our favourite romantic Devon holiday cottages, with links to many more around our beautiful county.
