Coast & Country Cottages have an unrivalled collection of luxury holiday properties in South Devon that are finished to exceptional standards, with a VisitEngland rating of Five Star or Five Star Gold.

The beautiful Dart Marina apartments and townhouses are a wonderful example of these high standards. Situated in one of the West Country’s most sought after locations on the edge of the River Dart, the properties were designed by awardwinning London architects, and most boast stunning, unspoilt river views. These individually owned 5 Star apartments provide the boutique hotel experience with the flexibility and freedom of a large, stylish holiday home. Most properties also enjoy the use of the nearby luxury Dart Marina Health Spa including indoor pool, steam room, Jacuzzi and gym, not to mention 10% off indulgent Elemis spa beauty treatments. The Dart Marina properties sleep 2-6 and each offer either a terrace, a balcony, a large window seat  or fabulous windows from which to enjoy the wonderful views. Situated a short walk along the waterfront from historic Dartmouth’s boutique shops and awardwinning restaurants run by well known chefs, Dart Marina provides the perfect retreat for those looking for a luxury getaway.

Coast & Country Cottages are delighted to offer holidays and short breaks at sixteen Dart Marina apartments and a townhouse. New for the 2015 season, the collection includes 18 Dart Marina and 25 Dart Marina, both stunning properties with beautiful private riverside terraces.

The recently completed, stunning waterfront ‘Estura’ properties in Salcombe offer a fabulous example of the ultimate in luxury self-catering. Boasting contemporary fixtures and fittings, including a state-of-the- art elegant hand crafted kitchen with designer units, quartz worktops and a range of integrated Miele equipment, self-catering is a delight in these beautiful apartments… Of course the stunning panoramic views over the Salcombe estuary from the kitchen and living area only add to the pleasure of spending time cooking! Guests can also enjoy delicious locally landed fish and seafood at nearby restaurant, The Jetty, with its awardwinning chef and Crustacean Bar, or relaxing the new Harbour Spa, with indoor pool overlooking the estuary, plus sauna, steam, Jacuzzi and five ESPA treatment rooms. Newly available to book for 2015 is The Sea Balcony, Estura, sleeping up to 4 people.

Larger luxury properties for groups of up to 16 people are also available, perfect for a family gathering or a special celebration. Oversteps House in Salcombe overlooks the stunning South Sands beach and was originally built in 1901. Recently refurbished to an exceptional standard, the property is VisitEngland Five Star Gold awarded and offers accommodation of the highest standards for up to 16 people, with or without a dog. The property boasts two beautiful master bedroom suites, French windows leading to the terrace from the living areas and fabulous contemporary feature fireplaces.

Oversteps even has its very own private beach retreat, ‘The Hobbit House’, overlooking the blue flag awarded beach, complete with sun loungers and a beer fridge; perfect for lazy Summer days. Oversteps House is available to book out of season as two apartments, each sleeping 8, or as one large house for 16 people.
