Whether you’re looking to stay in the harbour towns of Salcombe or Dartmouth, in the fishing villages of Hope Cove and Thurlestone, or on the breath-taking Start Bay coastline, we have a range of South Devon holiday homes to suit your requirements. From the maritime city of Plymouth to the traditional seaside village of Dawlish, our portfolio of properties features cottages in enviable locations.

Our story

Inspired by the unique natural beauty of South Devon, Coast & Country Cottages was founded in 2001 in Salcombe. Reflecting the popularity of our picturesque county, our business has since grown to include larger offices in both the harbour towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth. The business has gone from strength to strength, achieving accolades in the prestigious British Travel Awards in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019!

A local brand with national reach

Our team of locally-based travel experts live in South Devon and are passionate about the region. We spend time on the beaches, indulge in the pubs and restaurants, walk the coastal paths and explore the attractions, so we love to welcome holiday makers to the region to enjoy it just as much as we do. We visit our portfolio of properties regularly and really get to know them, helping us to offer genuine advice to our guests. Our properties are also quality assessed by our expert team so our guests can book with confidence each and every time.
