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.

  • Little Dorritt

    Little Dorritt

    We had a brilliant stay at Little Dorritt. The cottage has all that you need for a few days away and is very warm and comfortable. Its location is fantastic, and close to one of our favourite places in Cornwall. We live in the county, and have visited Sennen many times (including Camping at nearb...

  • Bella Cottage

    Bella Cottage

    We had a great long weekend stay at Bella Cottage which is elegantly designed with all the mod cons you could ask for. A quiet location even though on a main road, walking distance from the centre of town. Friendly & helpful owner. Recommended.

  • The Hideaway

    The Hideaway

    A lovely one bed cottage, clean, comfortable and a well equipped kitchen. All I looked for in a holiday cottage. The owners - Richard and Judy - live next door and couldn't be more helpful or welcoming. From a cream tea on arrival to treats for the dog. The weather was cool and often damp during...

  • Rivendell Glamping Pods

    Rivendell Glamping Pods

    This far exceeded our expectations. The hosts were extrelmely helpful and friendly. The accommodation with stocked with everything we could possibly have needed. Our boys especially loved the experience of being on the farm and seeing the pigs up close and personal.

  • Casa Marinero

    Casa Marinero

    Cottage was excellent; location a bit remote for us, especially as the weather was not so good. Great for very keen walkers who don't mind steep hills !

  • Lady's Well Shepherd's Hut

    Lady's Well Shepherd's Hut

    The Shepard's hut is truly unique and beautiful in every way, it's the perfect little escape from a very busy lifestyle. Would recommend this to anyone, it is by far the best one we have ever stayed in and can not wait to book again. The owners and manager of this place are the nicest people who are...

    Excellent location with shop, butcher, good pub, coffee bar/cafe very close. Very good walks all around. Restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets in nearby St Mawes. Quiet at this time of the year, which was delightful. Comfortable, very clean and exceptionally well equipped. Own parking very usef...

  • Francis’


    This was our second visit, new owners just as lovely as the last. A peaceful and quiet location with wonderful views. A third visit is on the cards as something about St Gennys / Francis draws us back.

  • Owlets


    Superb setting and accommodation.

  • 6 Pier View Court

    6 Pier View Court

    We have stayed at Pier View Court on a number of occasions and really enjoy staying here. The view from the living room window and the balcony of the Solent is amazing and the binoculars provided are in constant use. The apartment has everything we need and the building is very quiet. The provision ...
