New and Returning Cottages to Help You Make Your Next Holiday Choice

From barn conversions to waterside retreats, we have a selection of holiday cottages new to our website.

Throwleigh, or more specifically the tiny edge-of-Dartmoor hamlet of Wonson, is home to the aforementioned barn conversion – a cosy cottage tucked away down country lanes and close to a pretty church and country pub. The interior is all hand built and oozes country charm.

The waterside retreat in Kingsand, South Cornwall, overlooks the village square to the sea. An ancient cottage of 18th cent. origins, on three levels, snuggles between its sister cottages. To the front there is a terrace with table and chairs,
just right for a morning cuppa or evening glass of wine.

Otterton in East Devon is known for its working mill. Take a loaf of artisan bread back to this detached cottage between the mill and the church and enjoy its chic interior or the enclosed garden with both decking and lawned areas.

The former mews stables of the grand Victorian Lynton Hotel have recently been converted into a small enclave of homes including this stylish holiday cottage. Complete with a private garden, good access for those with limited mobility and the chance to ride the nearby funicular railway for views from the cliff-top over the town and harbour, this Devon property is likely to prove very popular.

If a mooring for your boat is part of your holiday cottage check list, how about this creek-side property in Port Navas, Cornwall? The tidal creek leads into the Helford River, and beside it a lane to Glendurgan and Trebah gardens and Helford Passage (sandy beach, good pub, boat hire) where pedestrian ferry to Helford village.

We are pleased to see the return of these two sweet cottages near Swimbridge, Devon, to our website. At the end of a short gravel drive, you will find two single-storey cottages and games room made from ancient barns in 6 acres of garden, wildlife ponds, meadows and woodland.
