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.

  • Dairyman’s Cottage

    Dairyman’s Cottage

    We spent a blissful week in the Dairyman's cottage. It was clean, cosy and comfortable.

  • The Old Dairy

    The Old Dairy

    The owners had literally thought of everything. Plugin lights for the hallways, baby bath foam and talc, doggie blanket, poo bags, bone and bowl. Utterly amazing. They really had thought of everything. Even tin foil and cling film. I've booked many cottages and have always taken this sort of stuff ...

  • Bumble Bee Barn

    Lovely, comfortable cottage furnished to a high standard. Very well equipped with a lot of thoughtful extra touches and attention to detail. Hot tub was the icing on the cake.

    The Shepherd's hut was absolutely excellent, simply perfect. It provided everything we needed and more. This made it the ideal setting for our weekend away. The hospitality was above and beyond and really made for a top weekend away.

  • Red House

    Excellently fitted out, only two of us staying but would be more than adequate for larger group / family and even extended family if cabin used
