Booking Information

Please check availability on the Prices and Availability page, then email the owners with details of:

  • your preferred dates
  • names of entire party
  • ages if under 25
  • address and telephone details


To protect the local residents and infrastructure of the beautiful South Hams area and to fully comply with the Government Travel Ban  I have cancelled or transferred all bookings up to July 2020.
I will review July and onwards bookings as we get nearer and will contact all those booked if it looks likely the Ban will need to continue. 

On a more positive note I have completed the calendar for 2021 and will be happy to secure your holiday for then. Please do contact me if you want to make a 2021 booking

Stay safe and stay at home everyone 
see you on the other side 

best wishes 

As many people have said there are so many thoughtful touches around the cottage that make it feels like a well loved home rather than a holiday let.

The Cottage

Kittiwake Cottage is a semi-detached, mid 19th century, white-washed fisherman's cottage providing a perfect base for a wonderful holiday in all seasons.

The owners have worked hard to make sure that a holiday at Kittiwake Cottage is all you'd expect it to be; by the time you reach the front door, you'll realise that this is a very special place...and when you step inside you won't be disappointed.

Sympathetic restoration has retained or restored original features such as the fireplace, wide wooden floorboards and wooden sash windows. The cottage is well equipped, comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated using tranquil seaside colours and natural fabrics. Plentiful windows on three aspects ensure that Kittiwake is light and airy with excellent views over the valley to the sea. It's cool in summer and cosy in winter, with a log burner in the sitting room and heaters in every room.

To save you loading your car to the roof, most of the things you need for your holiday are provided, including professionally laundered, crisp cotton sheets and fluffy bath towels. A full inventory is sent before arrival or available on request.
