Holiday Cottages In The United Kingdom To Rent - Save up to 60%

Holiday Cottages in the UK

The UK is a land of contrasts; head away from major cities like London, Birmingham, Liverpool and you’ll quickly reach the stunning natural landscapes that characterise places like Cornwall, the Lake District, and Dartmoor. From amazing historic landmarks to exquisite restaurants, there’s so much to experience in the UK, and holiday cottages are a great choice if you want accommodation that offers quality and comfort while giving you the freedom to holiday on your own terms.

Picture a cottage and you’re perhaps thinking of a cosy little idyll, maybe a traditional terrace or former miner’s dwelling. These holiday cottages are great for year-round breaks, and are uniquely British. There are many kinds of UK holiday cottages available, including spacious modern lodges, pet-friendly barn conversions and even holiday cottages boasting their own hot tub or swimming pool – and yes they are normally heated!

What to do on your UK holiday cottage holiday

No matter where you travel to across the length and breadth of Britain, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable getaway. Head to the southern tip of the country and you’ll find some world-class beaches and a temperate climate. Cornwall boasts some exquisite strips of sand and surfing spots such as at Fistral Beach, or you head a little upwards to North Devon and discover one of the best sandy beaches in Europe, the stunning Woolacombe Beach.

Great beaches aren’t unique to Britain, but what marks this island out as special is its long history and the sheer number of fascinating historic landmarks scattered throughout the land. There are great castles all over the place, well over two thousand in Scotland alone! Prime examples include Conwy Castle in Wales, Stirling Castle in Scotland and Bamburgh Castle, located on the coast of Northumberland.

Beyond beaches and castles there’s so much more going on, from world-class arts festivals like the Edinburgh Fringe to miles upon miles of hiking trails, cycle paths, and mountains to climb. And what better way to enjoy the country than with a stay in your very own little castle? Check out the selection of great UK holiday cottages, available for all tastes and budgets.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In The United Kingdom To Rent.

Marilyn - verified booking

"We recently spent a long weekend at Colleton Hall. There were 14 in our party ranging from ages 1 to 92 and everyone had a superb time. The accommodation is both elegant and functional. It has all the sophistication of a large Georgian residence with a sweeping staircase and generous room sizes ,but it has been so tastefully renovated that in terms of modern conveniences you could be renting an up market ultra modern house. Unusually for a holiday rental property, no expense has been spared in the renovations. Everything is in good taste, from the tiles throughout the ground floor, to the fittings in the bathrooms and all three kitchens. My 25 year old nephew said having a bath in the main bathroom overlooking the grounds will be a memory that will stay with him for a long time. The rooms are complemented by the carefully chosen art, many beautiful objects and vases of fresh flowers. And then there are the grounds. All I can say is wow. The lake is magical. The young members of the party, as well as taking the canoe out, had a swim in the lake. We took the opportunity of walking through the woods that are also owned by Colleton and just loved the peace and tranquility. Finally, being greeted by the owners of Colleton, Russell and Richard, in such a warm way set the weekend off to a great start. The fact they left the fridges stocked with beers (which I am sure the youngsters in the party used) as well as top class champagne (which we ensured was not touched) shows just how far they will go to try and give their guests a first class experience. We used the chef from DineIndulge for the meal on the Saturday evening and, this too, was a success. I would definitely recommend Colleton to anyone wanting a large, beautiful and sophisticated house in a rural setting. The consensus was that it was the best standard we have ever rented."

"From the moment we stepped through the doors at Colleton Hall, we knew we were very lucky to be staying somewhere so special. It was late autumn and log fires crackled in the huge fireplaces in the large, beautifully-fitted kitchen and the spacious drawing room, making the first impression one of warmth and welcome. The owners, who, surprisingly are not interior designers, have lovingly restored this gem of a small, 'stately home' with incredible flair and attention to authentic detail, whilst including the modern time-saving luxuries we all don't want to live without when on holiday. Each of the six tastefully-decorated bedrooms has its own en-suite bathroom with high-end fittings and a hot water system that ensures no one goes without a decent shower! Outside, there is plenty of parking in the gravel driveway. Beyond the house, a terrace gives way to the gardens which reach down to a lake and out to woods and fields - ideal settings for barbecues, walks and picnics. This is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday - or long weekend - away from the fast pace of city life, but close enough to a good pub, restaurant and amenities - if you can bear to drag yourselves away from the beauty and comfort of the Hall. We loved it so much, we've already booked to go back with our family this Summer."

"I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at Colleton Hall, a beautiful house which felt like a luxury hotel. In the bedrooms and bathrooms, the attention to detail and care was so clear, they were a delight. The kitchen, dining areas and sitting room were perfect for all our different needs and moods. The large kitchen and pantry were ideal for our group and made cooking and eating together a real joy. In the library there was the joy of a fascinating range of books that could have kept us busy for the whole visit. Around the house we all commented on the artwork, again a fascinating range of styles and artists. The Sonos system in every room was such a bonus, everyone downloaded the app and we had music on tap to meet every taste, which was deeply appreciated by the younger members of our group. The extensive grounds, fields and the woods were ideal for our two dogs, who had a ball as between us we spent hours throwing balls and sticks. The lake and the canoe were well used, an activity which did become a bit competitive for younger members of our group! We were lucky to meet our hosts Russell and Richard, they could not have made us any more welcome. Overall, a fabulous house in a wonderful setting, thank you for helping us discover it."

"The cottage location is exactly as described, however there needs to be much more attention to detail. The pictures shown are old pictures and very deceiving. There were cobwebs on tables in every bedroom. The bath had to be cleaned before it could be used. The bulbs in many lamps were not working. Batteries in TV remotes - again not working! There is no opportunities for privacy at all as there are no locks on any doors. (Not even bathroom doors.) Everything feels like it has been done on a budget and the owners are constantly trying to save money. TV hanging from the wall was unstable and didn't look homely at all. Heating was locked to certain settings, so unless you want to get up after 8.30am and be in bed before 9pm you had no heating out of these times so it was cold. Contacted the owner prior to arrival to check directions etc, however as we hadn't booked direct he was extremely rude and didn't want to know and was very unhelpful. The caretaker also came across as been arrogant and unwelcoming. We have stayed in many cottages all over the UK over the last 15 years and this is the first one we have had to leave a bad review for."

"Stayed at cottage from 6th July-13th July, location, scenery and hot tub fabulous although hot tub was not the cleanest when we arrived although my husband had mentioned this concern to owners after reading previous visitors reviews. They ought to be maintaining hot tub daily especially when a party of 6 as we were are using it daily. The cottage itself was a huge disappointment 😔 back bedrooms bed is badly broken and expect a visit to chiropractors after your stay. Extractor for cooker not working, dining table leg broken, one of single beds broken, practically no running hot water in bathroom sink and not much power in shower. No bike shed as stated, front bedroom wardrobe doors broken, bbq filthy on arrival, hoover smelt of wet dog which was absolutely disgusting also musty smell in bedroom cupboard aswell as throughout whole cottage on arrival. Overall was really dissatisfied would recommend overhaul and replacement of many items especially the hoover. In no way good value for money costing much more than it’s worth. Certainly would not be returning 😡😡"
