Self-catering holiday cottages in South West England

The incredible scenery with wonderful seascapes coupled with a mild and sunny climate means Cornwall is a favourite destination for the self-catering holiday enthusiast to get away from it all. It offers a long and varied history and heritage, with everything from quaint and undisturbed seaside villages full of local charm, to wonderful botanical gardens exhibiting flora unseen anywhere else in the British Isles.

Somerset many say is 'The Best of The West' (Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset - 'The West Country') and mixes heritage, coast and countryside with great walking and cycling. Must see Wells Cathedral in England's smallest city, Glastonbury Abbey and Cheddar Caves.

Visiting Devon it makes no difference whether you’re a beach fan, a countryside devotee, nature lover or just simply seeking to explore the natural wonders that are Exmoor and Dartmoor, a self-catering holiday in Devon is the perfect antidote to the rigours of daily life. Whether you’re looking to take a romantic weekend break, family holiday or last-minute break, we are sure you will find the right holiday house but warn you to book in advance!
