The Eden Project

There are few places more beautiful than a holiday cottages in Devon - safe, peaceful, uncomplicated, English speaking, same currency ... BUT it’s February, so our top tip is to head for the Eden Project in Cornwall. The roads are quiet and the visitor numbers will be lower than school holidays. Then you can head straight for the biomes, find a seat and even have a meal, in the tropical or Mediterranean climate, believe you are really there for a while and then come back to enjoy the delights of Devon holidays and self catering holiday cottages.

Our very own North Devon Shire, Tom (starring on the forestry stamp priced at £1.28), works at Lower Upcott Farm, where he has lived since the age of two. You can visit the farm and spend the day logging with Tom and his companions. As well as farm work he has been known to pull trailers of visitors to the pub.
