South West England

The South West region is probably England's most well-known holiday hotspot, being home to some of the most famous seaside resorts. Pretty villages and harbours in Cornwall, many with sweeping sandy beaches, such as St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to name but a few, give way to sophisticated seaside resorts in Devon and Dorset which include Bournemouth, Torquay and Ilfracombe. The history of this region is unrivalled; Wiltshire's spectacular downland and the stone circles at Avebury and Stonehenge, through Hardy's Dorset, dramatic Dartmoor and gentler Exmoor, to the mining landscapes of Cornwall and West Devon, which are now recognised as being of international significance, having been awarded World Heritage Site status in 2006. The Trust protects 370 miles of the coastline in Devon and Cornwall and, wherever you are in the two far western counties, you're never more than 25 miles from the sea. As well as this peninsula, the Trust also cares for much of the countryside in Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset and a wide array of fascinating properties to visit and explore. Not surprisingly, perhaps, this area is also home to the widest selection of National Trust holiday cottages.

    Furnishings reflected period of the cottage

    Cottage was in excellent condition and the furnishings reflected the period of the cottage. It is also very comfortable and a pleasure to live in. Staff who worked at Montacute House were also excellent in providing information and food was terrific in the adjoining cafe.

    Such a comfortable and tastefully decorated cottage

    We stayed here for October half term so luckily caught Montacute House before it closed for the winter. A stunningly beautiful and interesting property, we also really enjoyed our walks across the park to the cafe! The children enjoyed tramping through the park land, collecting sweet chestnuts. Otherwise lots to do in the area - Sherbourne, Barrington Court and the not to be missed Lytes Carey. The visit to the Fleet Air Arm was also a great success. With such a comfortable and tastefully decorated cottage, we were unwilling to leave it and our cosy fire in the evening. Thank you NT!
