Holiday Cottages in the UK

Holiday Cottages in the UK

Holiday cottages are a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and embrace a slower pace. Whether that may be a quaint cottage in a small village in England or a regal estate in the middle of nowhere in Scotland, rent a home away from home for a relaxing self-catering stay. Bring a loved one, friends, family or even your pet to complete your getaway and choose from any location within the UK to make your backdrop picture-perfect.

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

Best Holiday Home Destinations

The UK is a land of contrasts; head away from England's major cities like London, Birmingham, Liverpool and you'll quickly reach the stunning natural landscapes that characterise places like Yorkshire, Northumberland, Cornwall, and the Cumbrian Lake District. Venture over England's border to find exquisite countryside in Snowdonia, North Wales, and the Highlands of Scotland. 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.


  • What should I take to a holiday cottage?

    Packing for a staycation is really easy - just think of what you would use when you're at home! Some owners and cottages provide all the essentials, like towels, bed linen and cleaning products, while others prefer you to bring your own. Remember to check the individual listing before you leave to make sure you have everything you might need during your stay.

  • What makes a good holiday house?

    Deciding the best option for your family completely depends on your own personal preferences, budgets and tastes.
