Self Catering in Devon

The benefits of a self catering holiday in Devon at Yannon Towers

The benefits of a self catering holiday in Devon are numerous.  One of the main ones is that by choosing self catering accommodation, especially at Yannon Towers is that you’re coming to stay in a ‘home away from home’.  We try and make the house as comfortable as possible for our guests.  By providing all towels and bed linen to leaving the kitchen cupboards fully stocked with herbs and spices.  We also try and make our guests feel immediately at home by leaving a welcome hamper full of luxury treats, at least one of these is always a home made gift.

I think another reason that Yannon Towers is so popular with our guests is that it isn’t a soul-less money making venture.  This is actually our family home and we only rent it out when we choose, we don’t have it fully booked throughout the year and it’s obvious to all who visit that it’s a well loved, happy home.  It was such a sad building when we bought it and over the years we’ve given it a life and I think this is apparent as soon as you walk in.  It’s full of quirky antiques and artwork and I hope you can tell by the quality of the fixtures and fittings that we really care about the building and want to try and keep it as traditionally Victorian as we can, but with all ‘mod cons’.

The fact that the house is in South Devon is also a massive bonus.  We’re a 10 minute walk from local beaches and the house is on top of a hill so has the most amazing views out to sea and up the Teign Estuary.

Self catering holiday options also have the bonus of being completely on your own time table.  You can get up and have breakfast when you like, there’s no queuing for food at the buffet and no need to reserve a sun bed with your towel.  You’re free to do as you please, in surroundings that are comfortable, with no risk of being caught in your pyjamas at midday by the staff coming to clean your room!

There are lots of different types of self catering options that can be found on sites such as http://www.homeaway.com and of course  From yurts to penthouses and single bedrooms to castles, there are a huge amount of options to choose from.  We’re listed on all of these sites, our most popular site being AirBnB.  Obviously these sites will all incur a booking charge and normally an administration fee as well, so booking directly with the owner is always preferable, but the extra security of an established booking site is understandable.

Choosing a self catering holiday with Yannon Holiday at Yannon Towers in Teignmouth guarantees you an excellent time.  Beaches, luxury accommodation, excellent facilities, Dartmoor, great local food and the freedom to do as you please.
