Perfect Stays

Looking for a Devon, Dorset, Cornwall or Somerset escape? Hell yeah! Check out these stunning self-catering properties.

I have a real thing for the West Country – I spend a lot of time gazing adoringly at the Muddy Instagram accounts for these beautiful coastal counties and the area is where I automatically look to escape when being landlocked in Bucks and Oxon starts to feel constricting.

If you’ve ever tried to book a self-catering place in Cornwall, Dorset, Devon or Somerset you’ll know that the internet is riddled with holiday let sites, but save yourself a whole load of fruitless googling and go straight to Perfect Stays – their properties are absolutely gorgeous. They certainly do what it says on the tin.

There are currently over 50 stunning houses to choose from on the site, ranging in size from romantic hideaway The Nook (sleeps 2), set in the rolling hills near Rock, to Beachfront, which sleeps 8 – 10 and is slap bang on the sand in Bigbury-on-Sea. To make your stay even more enjoyable, many of the properties have on-site wellbeing extras as part of their inclusive concierge service, from yoga and wine tasting to massage. I feel a staycation coming on.
