Key Info

Here there is a treat in store, as discovering Oak Cottage is like finding a treasure hidden in the attic! Tucked in a quiet corner, charmingly furnished and well equipped with a delightful, private waterside terrace/quay, this cottage is simply not to be missed. Here is the best of all worlds - situated on the waterside of the picturesque tidal Hooe lake, a sheltered area of water off the Plym Estuary and close to Plymouth Sound in Devon, with stunning views across the ever changing waterscape scene with its abundance of wildlife, it is hard to believe that the historic centre of Plymouth is only a short distance away. The cottage has its own pontoon and a nearby slipway (boats by arrangement).

With many beautiful local sites to visit and plenty of coastal footpaths to explore, the cottage is close to the Mountbatten Diving Centre and Marina which hosts international yachting competitions and caters for top class sailing and other activities such as fishing, Deep Blue diver training and diving trips in and around Plymouth. Plymouth City Centre approximately 4 miles away is easily accessible by car or via a regular bus service, or take a local ferry ride across to the famous Barbican centre for restaurants and unusual shops. Visit the historic Hoe, Smeaton's Tower, the National Marine Aquarium and The Citadel and further into the heart of the City there are theatres, cinemas and shops galore, a haven for shopaholics. All this on the doorstep of Oak Cottage.

The West Country region

The large county of Devon can be found in the South West of England, with coastline on both its northern and southern borders. Devon offers a fantastic array of unspoilt scenery, coastal walks, beautiful sandy beaches and quaint villages that are begging to be explored.

The contrasts go much further than just the landscapes, with some of the finest shopping and dining experiences only a stone's throw from history and tradition. From a family getaway to a romantic retreat or relaxing break for a group of friends, holiday cottages in Devon provide some of the richest holiday destinations in the United Kingdom.

There is a wide range of accommodation available throughout Devon which can cater to all tastes, no matter what the requirements of visitors may be. If, for example, guests are looking for dog friendly cottages that will allow them to take along their beloved family pet, this will not be a problem. Homes with swimming pools, expansive gardens and that are right next to the beach represent just some of the other varied properties which can be booked all year round.

Devon holiday cottages offer the chance to escape the stresses of day-to-day life and enjoy a break which is truly tranquil. The rolling countryside and the glorious seaside combine to deliver a visitor experience which will live long in the memory and prove to be the perfect choice for all those hoping to make the most of time away with their loved ones.

Cottages in Devon are among the most popular in the whole of the UK, with many people choosing to stay in the county in all four seasons. Devon is still a beautiful and fascinating place to discover even in the colder months, and can provide the same levels of relaxation for guests whenever they decide to visit.

One of the advantages of coming to this stunning part of the South West in winter or autumn is that it is not as busy as in the height of summer, meaning that Devon cottages are the ideal destination for anyone looking for a break which offers true peace and quiet.


Few areas of the UK, or even Europe, have a lure greater than beautiful South Devon. Dramatic Dartmoor gives way to rolling hills, wooded valleys and stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer. While away days in market towns and villages that have retained their tradition whilst now offering great dining and excellent shopping, or leave the townships behind and head to any one of the outstanding sandy beaches that dot the South Devon coast. It's hard not to fall for the otherworldly pace of life making a stay in a South Devon holiday cottage the perfect escape from the 9-5.

"Lovely cottage in Hooe, a quiet comfortable village"

We spent 2 weeks in this lovely cottage, my husband, our two children and I, and we felt very comfortable, just as if we were at home.
The cottage is very well furnished and equipped and it has a cosy little garden, that looks right on the Lake, where we had our breakfast and dinner every day, since we have been very lucky with the weather.
The nearby pub, very close to the cottage, was a nice company: cold beers at hand and sometimes live music during our dinners, but not until late.
There is a bus stop very close and a small ferry that takes you to Plymouth in a few minutes.
The surroundings are beautiful and the people are very friendly.
We really had a lovely stay!
