We find holiday cottages that people fall in love with.

We find holiday cottages that people fall in love with - it is as simple as that. Every time you walk into one of our holiday homes, whether it is a manor house or waterside apartment, we want you to say ‘Wow’, put your feet up and relax into your holiday.

Self catering cottages are what we do, but we’re more than just a holiday cottage company with cottages to rent. We’re also a people company, dedicated to making your holiday the best that it can be. We’re passionate about the South West and seek out the best holiday homes to complement the fact we love where we live.

Your accommodation can make or break your holiday so we make sure that all our holiday lets will exceed your expectations. We review every property in our portfolio at least once a year to keep our standards high and your standards met, even down to counting the teaspoons – yes, we take holiday letting that seriously. It’s the little things that make our UK rentals the ones that guests return to year after year.

So, whether you are looking for a rural retreat in the depths of the country, a luxury cottage on the coast path or a romantic hideaway on the beach, tap into our years of experience and passion for making every one of your holidays with us a best ever.

Delve in deeper if you’d like to know more about us, including a bit of a story around how we came to be, all those years ago. There are a constant stream of new reviews live on the website so you can read other people’s first hand experiences of each property, or just find out a bit more information about staying with us, such as our Green Scheme for eco-friendly holiday-makers and what you don’t need to bring to a baby friendly holiday cottage.

    Barrington village is idyllic, it's perfectly possible to spend a day idling the time away walking, visiting Barrington Court, browsing in the craft studios and talking with the makers. We managed to buy most of our Christmas gifts in the woodturners studio, including a couple of beautiful souvenirs...

  • The Long Barn

    The Long Barn

    The Long Barn is an incredibly spacious, stylish, luxurious property, and the standard of the styling / furnishing and workmanship is quite something. Frankly, why we haven't seen this project on Grand Designs is beyond me; Kevin McCloud would love it! (We especially loved the bathrooms.) For a g...

    The Vineyard Retreat

    We had a short break at the Retreat in October. It was a really lovely place to stay however we booked this in particular for the swimming pool and hot tub advertised. Despite this when we excitedly headed over to the pool area we found it to be quite dirty and the hot tub was empty. We felt a littl...
