), as opposed to a hotel you can experience Devon life how the locals would and avoid falling into any tourist traps. Cottage owners will be happy to provide you with a list of the most popular attractions, restaurants, pubs and activities to make sure you don’t miss out anything and will also point out any places off the beaten track that otherwise may have been missed. Self-catering is another advantage of staying in a holiday cottage as eating out in restaurants can dramatically affect how much money you spend during the holiday and can therefore limit the other activities you have funds for.
