Holiday getaways from the South West's leading self-catering lettings agency

Marsdens Devon Cottages is an independent family business which started in 1973. We’ve grown a lot since the early days of letting our first self-catering holiday cottages, but our promise to provide the very best service – as well as a fantastic range of great places to stay – hasn’t changed one bit. As every year goes by, our experience continues to grow.

Local knowledge to help you choose the perfect holiday let

Our office is in the pretty North Devon village of Braunton, which is close to the beaches at Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe. Most of our staff live locally and many of them have been with us for a number of years. This means they know the area well, have visited many of the properties themselves and can offer well informed recommendations. Just ask!

Of course our knowledge extends far beyond Braunton and the beaches of North Devon. All our properties are visited and inspected by our staff regularly so we can usually answer any questions you may have about a particular property. If we don’t know the answer ourselves then it’s never a problem to get in touch with the property owners. We enjoy good relationships with all our owners.

Our assurance that your holiday cottage will be all you hoped for

We are proud of our portfolio of over 350 properties. However, that means nothing without your approval. To make sure the holiday accommodation we provide meets – and exceeds – your high expectations, we are also members of nationally recognised and trusted quality assurance schemes. We have our own VisitEngland assessor who inspects our properties annually to make sure that we meet every standard – from décor and furnishings to star rating and cleanliness – so you will enjoy a trouble free holiday with us.

When you stay with us we’ll ask you to fill in a short questionnaire after your stay to provide us with your feedback on what you liked or disliked about a property. So if there’s something you think we can do to improve, let us know. It will help to make us better.
