In Devon and Cornwall, the South West is home to more log cabins than any other area. You may need to zoom in on the map to find the lodge you need. National parks like Dartmoor and Exmoor are wonderful, while the coast is never far away in this part of the world.
Driving to Cornwall used to be an ordeal, with lots of holdups at busy times. These days you can go as far as St Ives on motorway and dual carriageway. And your journey is rewarded by the famous quality of light, matched by the uniquely turquoise colour of the sea. On a hot day it could pass for the Caribbean.
Devon is closer to the rest of England, and the only English county with two coastlines. Salcombe and the South Hams attract an upmarket yachtie set, while the North Coast is more rugged and less developed. Saunton Sands, near Barnstaple and Bideford, is an epic stretch of golden sands, a 3 mile beach fronting the nature reserve of Braunton Burrows.
Dorset and Somerset represent entry points to the South West, but many people find no reason to travel further. Glastonbury, Sherborne (remember the Hovis TV commercial?) and the cathedral city of Wells, plus Dorset's Jurassic coast for fossil-hunting, make for lots of entertainment in these counties.
The South West of England offers a wonderful combination of places to visit and enjoy, with a vast range of log cabins to rent for your holiday. And in the warmest part of England too!
