Luxury waterside holiday cottages in Devon

Nothing says "and, breathe" like a weekend by the water; in our luxury waterside holiday cottages in Devon, private coastal homes, and chic boathouses, seaside reveries and lake dreaming become an all-too-easy reality.

Presiding over grand manor estates, hunkered down among ancient woodlands, and perched over yacht-laden rivers, our private waterside homes are set by the best lakes, rivers, and beaches in the South West. These are places to clink glasses, twirl under twinkling lights, and chat until the wee hours to the sound of lazy currents. There is, perhaps, no greater feeling on earth than glacial morning dips in secret wild swimming spots, or diving in a tepid lake while lunch sizzles on the barbecue. An idyllic getaway for families and couples alike, our luxury waterside holiday cottages in Devon offer all the restorative properties that cold water therapy brings, but with bubbling hot tubs to sweeten the deal.

Whether you choose to hole up by the coast, the lake, or the river, what's on the cards is al fresco supper gatherings, afternoon kayak expeditions downstream, and real-life water soundscapes sending the little ones to sleep. Go off-grid in a luxury waterside holiday cottage with its own private slipway, play competitive family table tennis tournaments in the games room, or hunker down in remote wilderness tree houses. We've sourced staycations by babbling rivers, up inland valleys, and nestled over private beaches where sunset picnic suppers rule and dogs on their summer holidays fly head first into the water chasing sticks. Peaceful restoration comes in waves at these one-of-a-kind waterside homes.
