West Country cottages and holidays in the South West

map for holiday cottages west country and south west englandThe South West of England, popularly known as the West Country, offers a unique and diverse range of attractions for the holiday visitor. With Britain's mildest climate, many of its best beaches, an abundance of pretty West Country villages, and scenery ranging from dreamy farmland and leafy forest to wild moors and towering cliffs, it's no surprise that the West Country is England's most popular holiday cottage destination.

Each county has its particular attractions including beautiful beaches, historic sites, glorious gardens, quaint villages, bustling towns and the 'Oh so English' West Country countryside. There is plenty to attract the active holiday visitor too; some exceptional coastal and moorland walking, the UK's surfing meccas in Cornwall, horse riding and bike riding on the moors and no shortage of special attractions to keep the kids amused. West Country seaside resorts can be pretty full in the summer holidays, but at other times you will be pleasantly surprised by the quiet roads and peaceful countryside.

West Country cottage types

The type of cottage holidays on offer in our West Country section range from quaint thatched country cottages in Somerset, to modern houses and apartments on the quays of Cornish harbours. Each West Country county can offer barn conversions and farm cottages, frequently on working farms. Many of the holiday cottages we list offer swimming pools and other amenities, all listed on the detailed information we supply for each cottage. There are also a fair number of larger properties for rent, great for groups, family holidays and special occasions.
