About Helpful Holidays
The company is based in Devon and has been operating since the mid-1980s. By restricting its operation to just one region of the UK, Helpful Holidays has become the specialist in the area and is, therefore, able to offer a wider range of choice to prospective holidaymakers.
The southwest of England has long been a popular holiday destination. Cornwall* is one of the best spots in the UK for surfing, and also has some of the most beautiful beaches - not to mention great seafood.
The rugged coastline of southern Cornwall is also home to some of the prettiest old fishing villages in the UK.
Devon boasts two national parks within its borders and a further five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and if you really want to travel back in time, the 185 million-year-old Jurassic coast in west Dorset is home to fossils and countless trails through the rolling hills.
With its detailed knowledge of the region, Helpful Holidays can help guide you towards the area that most suits your requirements; for example, whether you want to be near a farm or some good restaurants, find a cottage which is very child-friendly or one with access to a beach, Helpful Holidays will be able to advise you.

As well as searching by type of property you can also select cottages by region or county and from a helpful list of popular places such as Torbay and the Red Cliffs*, Burgh Island* and Newquay*, or Devon's River Country, Dartmoor* and Cornwall's Med.
Whichever type of cottage and location you opt for, you can be assured that the property you select has been carefully checked by Helpful Holidays to ensure that it is up to standard.
Regular checks are made during the holiday season to confirm that everything is in order. This helps to protect your interest and will hopefully also make your holiday one to remember.
