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.

    Lovely welcome from Dawn, the owner - and home made cakes on arrival! The cottage enjoys a lovely position with easy access to walks, beaches and local attractions. All information is accurate and we found it just as expected. We had a lovely weekend and will definitely return.

    Trerubies is a lovely barn-cottage in a fabulous location for exploring all that North Cornwall has to offer. We greatly enjoyed our early-April break and would happily return again. Views and especially sunsets are beautiful from the elevated position of the property's garden.
