Home | Locations | Holbeton

If you’re looking for somewhere special to stay where you can stroll down to the most magical of beaches and relax with a book, walk the South West Coastal Path or try a spot of wild swimming in pristine clear waters, a Holbeton holiday ticks all the boxes.

You may not have even heard of Holbeton, it’s not one of those villages you would just drive through… it’s truly off the beaten track! This charming traditional Devon village is tucked away into the hillside above the River Erme estuary, close to the beautiful beaches of Mothecombe and Coastguards. The village has just one pub and a post office store but it’s very well connected. It’s just a short drive to the waterside villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo, just 7 miles to the charming market town of Modbury and 10 miles from Plymouth.

Why Choose a Holbeton Holiday?

Holbeton holiday

Holbeton is idyllic. Imagine rolling hills dipping down into the sea and a totally unspoilt, majestic and undeveloped coastline. That’s Holbeton. Stroll down to the beautiful Mothecombe Beach. Stop for coffee and a pastry at the Italian inspired schoolhouse. (Towards the bottom of the car park  – yes you can take the car if you prefer!) This popular hotspot is gaining quite a reputation with both locals and visitors, and you can take your dog too!. 

Holbeton is around a half an hour drive to Plymouth so if you fancy a little retail therapy or a walk around the cobbled streets of the Barbican, it’s easily accessible. The neighbouring villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are well worth a visit. These two chic waterside beauty spots straddle the River Yealm and are very popular with sailors. Head along Court Road to the jetty and go crabbing with with kids or launch the kayaks and paddleboards and explore this hidden gem.
