Stunning Holiday Homes in South Devon and Wales

Choose your favourite from our carefully selected cosy cottages, rural retreats for families and couples and large houses for groups.


Whether you dream of fun days on the beach, exploring the countryside or staying in a coastal village, we have plenty of picturesque options to tempt you in Devon and Wales.


We are Katie and Rupert, a husband and wife team and we live in South Devon. Rupert is Brixham born and bred and Katie moved to Torquay in 1995, initially to study tourism but found it too hard to leave! We now have kids and we’re well and truly settled here.


Not only are we passionate about creating excellent holiday experiences but we also love this beautiful part of the UK where we live.  Although we have travelled to some amazing places around the world, we still believe it is hard to find a more perfect place than South Devon with its stunning coastline, rugged moorlands and spectacular countryside. We look forward to welcoming you here.
