Stone walls, thatched roofs, picket fences and pretty gardens are some of the features that often spring to mind when we think of a classic cottage. Full of character and history, it’s no wonder that so many holiday-goers enjoy spending time in these traditional and quintessentially British cottages.


One of the greatest things about holiday cottages is that they give you extra freedom to enjoy your time away, in a property that feels like a cosy home from home. If you’ve been planning to get away on holiday, why not see if any of our classic cottages take your fancy?


Classic cottages brimming with charm


Whether you prefer the old-school charm of a traditional cottage interior or perhaps you’d prefer one that’s been renovated and modernised to include all the mod-cons, you’ll find a great selection here at Snaptrip. From cottages in the heart of pretty villages to those hidden away in the rural countryside, the choice is completely yours.


If you’re looking for a dog-friendly cottage to bring your beloved pooch along for the week, we’ve got plenty of pet-friendly properties for you to choose from. For a little bit of luxury, why not choose a holiday cottage with its own private hot tub to soak your cares away? We’re here to help you find the ideal place for a memorable getaway.


You just need to pick the perfect location


You can find classic cottages dotted all across the UK, from beachside retreats to countryside escapes. If you’d love nothing more to be relaxing on the beach, watching the waves roll in, then a trip to Devon, Cornwall, or Brighton might be in order.
