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.

"This was the second time we stayed at this holiday cottage so we knew what to expect. On arrival there was a welcome pack of bread, milk and some yummy biscuits, all very appreciated. We were on holiday with our two children (8 and 4) and found the Accomodation adequate for a week’s holiday. The second bedroom is very small but fine for our two to sleep in. The kitchen is well enough equipped for a week with plenty of crockery and other utensils. We know Stratford and the surrounding area well as we have family in the town, we found lots to do and places to visit, although it wasn’t half term in Warwickshire so some places were not set up with the usual half term activities. Great place to stay and the owners are very friendly."

"The apartment seemed fine at first but once settling in we quickly realised that things were not quite so good. For example we had to hang our clothes in kitchen cupboard when there is ample room in bedroom for some kind of wardrobe. Also the television couldn't be watched from the sofa as they were not even remotely facing each other. There needs to be a few more basic utensils etc in the kitchen e.g a measure jug to name one. When we stepped outside we were looking directly into another person's bedroom so we stayed inside out of respect for their privacy. All in all we were slightly disappointed."

Rosalind - verified booking

"We enjoyed our stay in this basement (cellar) apartment. We wanted somewhere to stay for the Buxton Festival and this was ideal being just a short walk across the park from the Pavillion and Opera House. As the weather was fine and we didn't spend much time in the time in the apartment, the lack of outlook was not a problem. The bedroom is quite small, but adequate with plenty of hanging space. The bath is a good size and comfortable, but the shower is attached to the taps, so is only really suitable for washing your hair. Lounge seats were comfortable, but the Wifi was a bit intermittent."

"I have already put in a complaint about Vanehouse apartment. Owner tried to change check in time. There was no heating, in January, with frost on the ground. When he eventually got it working it went off at 9pm every evening. He refused to provide an alternative heating source.Lovely full size dishwasher but only 2 knives, 2 spoons, 2 mugs, 2 plates rendering the dishwasher useless!No welcome pack not even a pint of milk.Very disappointing. All our gripes could have been rectified but the owner was rude & unhelpful & this business clearly comes 3rd after his driving lessons & B&B!"
