Holiday cottages by the sea

From sheltered coves and idyllic inlets to vibrant ports and rugged cliffs, seaside cottages situate you beside this region’s greatest asset. 

Whether your passion is for surfing beaches or sandy beaches, sailing and canoeing or simply taking in the view, the variety of our 681 cottages by the sea in The West Country ensure you’ll be best placed to enjoy this coastline’s many delights.

Our seaside cottages on the atmospheric north coasts of Devon and Cornwall will assault your senses with the sights, smells and sounds of the ever-changing, ever-beautiful ocean. Where better than to plan your next romantic break?

Along the The West Country’s southern coastlines, a holiday by the sea offers tranquil waters, secret coves and pretty towns to explore. With one of the world’s most beloved walking routes - the 630-mile South West Coast Path - snaking around the South West, a cottage by the sea in the region don’t only mean water sports on your doorstep. Hiking this glorious coastal route is one of the perks of staying in one of our holiday homes. 

For a gentler pace, consider a holiday in one of the region’s many picturesque fishing villages, where sea views will allow you to watch the comings and goings of working boats as well as the rich diversity of marine birds and wildlife who make the coastline their home. 

Whatever the weather or the season, self catering by the sea will never be anything short of breath-taking.
