What Makes a Finest Stay?

We represent a handpicked portfolio of luxury properties across The South Hams, opening the doors to some of the most beautiful homes in the UK. From quintessential cosy coastal cottages to secluded beach huts and boathouses, grand country manor houses with swathing gardens and large banqueting halls to slick glass-fronted waterfront apartments, we represent a variety of home styles. Staying true to our name and entirely focused on providing truly luxurious self-catering experiences, we only represent exceptional private homes that tick the Finest Stays boxes; outstanding locations, architectural pedigree and beautiful interiors. 

From the very start, Finest Stays has only accepted the ‘best in class’ holiday homes onto our books and the portfolio now consists of about 100 hand-selected properties in spectacular locations, from Salcombe to Thurlestone, Hope Cove to Dartmouth. Our expert team pride itself on exemplary service, making sure we phone each guest to discuss their needs and requirements ahead of their stay. Clients say this personal service brings them back year after year; some to the same much-loved holiday home, others to enjoy a new experience every time. Either way, it’s Finest Stays they call when they start planning their next luxury staycation.

Mr & Mrs H - Woodspring Owners

It's important to work with people who're local and with whom we had a personal relationship. With our previous agency we'd call the office, didn’t know the person we were talking to and they didn’t know the property. With Finest Stays, we have had such good service and support.
