Take your pick from our exclusive collection of self catering cottages across the UK and take the time to reconnect, blow the cobwebs away and make special memories. There’s plenty for you to do with a choice of woodland walks, coast path adventures, or to simply cosy up around the wood-burner with a good book and some board games. 

Short breaks are the perfect getaway year-round and we have plenty of gorgeous self catering cottages to suit you, including dog friendly cottages and cottages with sea views, swimming pools and hot tubs

Two, three or four night breaks

We have two, three or four night breaks to choose from, allowing you to getaway for just a weekend only, or extend it a little to a luxurious long weekend. 

Summer Holidays

Offering sunny skies, a warm sun, the gentle sea breeze on the coast and open expanses of moorland to explore, summer in the South West is the stuff that dreams are made of.

Christmas Escapes

For fun with all the family or just two of you, why not break up the madness of Christmas and take some time out with a short break somewhere away from home. We have a number of beautiful holiday homes that will leave you totally enchanted at this festive time of year.

New Year Breaks

Make this New Year one to remember; escape from it all to a rural hideaway or find a cottage in the heart of a community, and enjoy with friends and family. See in the New Year your way.

Winter Holidays

Wrap up warm and wander across empty beaches and the countryside. Watch a storm passing by while sitting in front of a roaring fire. This time of year can offer something for everyone. Dog restrictions have also been lifted off many beaches, so you can bring your four-legged friend along too.
