Our Story

PHOTO-2019-03-31-21-39-23.jpg

Saltwater Escapes is our family run business offering beautiful holiday cottages and apartments in Brixham, South Devon.

We are husband and wife team Jamie and Kate. Born and raised in Brixham, Jamie spent his childhood on the local beaches and enjoying the many outdoor pursuits Devon offers.  My early childhood years were also spent by the sea in North Berwick, Scotland. Later moving to rural Berkshire, I enjoyed much freedom outdoors in the surrounding countryside. We have subsequently had two children and we hope to encourage the same love for the outdoors and  sense of adventure in our children. 

Time spent on the Devon beaches, and exploring the stunning coast and countryside is our treasured escape from our busy lives. It's our time to switch off and relax, to get back to nature, to try something new, explore somewhere different, and most importantly to spend some quality time together and make treasured memories.

From the moment you arrive at a Saltwater Escapes' property we aim to give you a warm welcome starting with a complimentary welcome basket with a few essentials and some local goodies too! All properties offer fantastic access to the towns treasure's including the many cafés and restaurants, the beaches and of course the beautiful sea. Our team of Housekeepers and Property Managers are all local should you need to call for any assistance with anything. 

We love that Saltwater Escapes' properties have become a home from home for many of our customers who have stayed with us year after year and are making traditions of their own and memories to treasure.
