You will NOT be able to reach us by phone. We are however working remotely and emails to info@choice-cottages.com will be monitored.

FOR YOURE SAFETY: We are working with cleaners, launderers, maintenance teams and property managers for bookings in place from the 4th of July onwards to ensure that every effort is made to provide a much-deserved holiday for you and that is as risk-free as possible in these unprecedented times.

Compliance

For the safety of our clients and the changeover teams, the following measures have been introduced to ensure safe practice. 

Please can we ask you to comply with these points:

The above guidelines are not complete and do not stand alone as we act on behalf of many owners who directly employ their changeover teams and for this reason, our generic letter may be augmented/superseded by the owners to suit more appropriately their individual properties.

We do hope you have a wonderful stay despite the restrictions we are all contending with. Thank you in advance.

Thank you for you understanding and patience. Stay safe. Stay well.

West Country | Weather Forecast

The West Country, including the counties of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset can expect well over 1500 hours of sunshine annually and whilst May is usually the sunniest month, May to August average around 7 hours of sunshine a day.

The South West or West Country is surrounded by sea for the most part and so it is hardly surprising that the sea exerts a marked impact on the weather and climate of the area. On the eastern edge of the Gulf Stream, the greatest effect is felt in winter, when temperatures are generally higher than would be normally expected at such latitudes; the mean January temperature in the South West is similar to such Mediterranean resorts as Benidorm, Nice, Naples and Corfu. In summer, however, the sea does record the highest temperatures.

The air temperature during the winter rarely falls below freezing (0°C) and in summer, although the mean maximum is around 19°C, the daytime maximum often reaches 21°C and occasionally 30°C+. Rain falls the year round, with a distinct maximum during winter, mainly from the regular procession of weather fronts that move east across the Atlantic and the UK.

In summer these fronts are generally less frequent, taking a more northerly track and are much weaker. From a sailor’s, surfer and kite surfer’s viewpoint, the exposed coastal waters around the county yield a mean wind speed force 4 – 5 in winter and 3 – 4 in summer.
