Last minute summer getaways...

It's not too late to book a holiday cottage for summer, we still have some super places with availability, near shimmering seas or deep in rolling countryside.

How about this 200-year old detached stone barn (sleeps 7, pictured top left) on Exmoor with superb long moorland views? It's a brilliant spot for the country lover. You can wander down the lovely footpath to the river and on into Winsford for lunch at the famous thatched pub, The Royal Oak. There's 20% discount the week commencing 28th August.

Or if you yearn for the coast, this pretty detached stone cottage (sleeps 6, pictured left) in Port Navas on Cornwall's Med has stunning views over the river Helford and there are many beaches nearby. There's a 20% discount the weeks commencing 23rd and 30th July.

Don't forget to check all our special offers for July and August.

Wherever you decide to go over the coming weeks, we hope you have a safe journey, a wonderful holiday and (fingers crossed) great weather!

Award-winning beaches...

You're spoilt for choice in the West Country with countless sheltered coves, estuary creeks and huge stretches of surf-washed sand along the varied and spectacular coastline. And the good news is that twenty seven of our beaches have won the prestigious Blue Flag award for 2010. One of our favourites is Blackpool Sands in the South Hams (pictured left); with a wooded backdrop, watersports and the award winning Venus Beach Cafe, it has a wonderful Mediterranean feel.

How about staying just a few miles away in this light and airy cottage sleeping six? It still has availability over the summer so grab it while you can!

All our holiday cottages are personally inspected and star-rated for quality and come with our whole-hearted recommendation as good places for happy holidays.
