About Us

Devon Coastal Cottages, are a niche Holiday Cottage booking agent based within the heart of South Devon. The directors Edward and Kim Willis who both live and work in South Devon with three of their own holiday cottages decided after five years with a mainstream national agent that they could be more competitive with pricing and be more flexible on dates than the larger national agents. Having had enough of the endlessly increasing booking fees, chargeable extras for guests and large commissions that are paid to mainstream agents both by the holiday cottage owner and the guests; and trying to compete with the emerging short-break market fuelled by the flexibility of the AirBnB market saw that an opportunity presented itself for direct bookings with owners at sustainable prices. And so Devon Coastal Cottages came about. Holiday cottages near the coast in glorious South Devon.

With our expertise in digital marketing and our experience in Holiday Cottage ownership and management we offer a more targeted advertising reach and provide a better all round experience for cottage guests at more competitive rates. For holiday cottage owners we can offer a streamlined service, targeted digital marketing and with lower overheads, we offer more competitive commission rates than some of the national agents. Are you fed up with the call centre mentality? As a niche independent booking agent, we hope to bring back a more personal service both to our Holiday Cottage Guests and to future Holiday Cottage owner clients.

Our pricing structure is transparent, no hidden extras, no sliding scale booking fees or charges for extras or cleaning just a straight clear price exactly what it says on the website. With lower overheads we aim to pass on those savings to our holiday guest customers and at the same time offer a more flexible and personal service. For Holiday Cottage owner clients this translates into more bookings and you can compete with the AirBnB market, which can look very expensive if booking for a full week rather than just one or two nights. Having let our cottages with AirBnB over the winter we have seen a steady increase in demand for short breaks which is reflected across the hospitality industry as a whole. With huge demand especially for off peak 2 and 3 night weekend breaks. 

Devon Coastal Cottages offer the following break options:

2 night short break weekend only (Nov-Mar only)

3 night short break Fri-Mon - 3 nights

4 night short break Mon- Fri -

7 night break  Fri - Fri
