About us

If you want a holiday you'll remember for years to come, then we think you've found the right company.

Sweetcombe Cottage Holidays Limited is a locally based self-catering holiday booking agency focusing on East Devon.  Established in the mid 1970's with just a handful of cottages, the company has grown to the point where we now successfully market a great variety of properties throughout the region. From the start we were determined to build up a reputation for offering only the best of properties. The company has grown, but everyone involved still holds true to the combination of commitment and professionalism that is the foundation of the company's success. Family run to this day, we are still able to offer that personal service which sadly in today's ever increasing pace of life can sorely fall by the wayside.

Over the years we have embraced the advent of digital technology to enable us to reach a wide audience of prospective holidaymakers. Our web site being an increasingly important element in our advertising. Along with our ever popular brochure both receive regular complimentary comments as to their attractive and informative format and above all else, ease of use. Our advertising extends to a wide range of media, which includes Saturday and Sunday newspapers, selected good quality magazines and Tourist Board brochures. We rely on computers to maximise our fast and efficient administration. But they cannot do everything and fortunately, our guests still demand a personal touch! Our booking office is managed by a friendly, enthusiastic team who know our stunning area of East Devon well. Their personal knowledge of the individual properties ensures that you, our guests, have made a well-informed choice and can look forward to your holiday with confidence.

Our offices are manned during the normal working week and our voice mail service is open 24 hours a day. We issue all of our guests with a mobile phone number for out of hours emergencies.
