Holiday Cottages In The United Kingdom To Rent

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.

Pamela - verified booking

"S19369 is all that you could ask for in a cosy well appointed place for a real break. Easily managed, it has everything you could wish for, as a couple or single person for your stay. The cottage is spotlessly clean and the welcome gifts were a lovely touch. Although an excellent level of privacy it gives a feeling of security and being part of a small community of like minded visitors. Annie and her family are welcoming and concerned that everything is done to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The location is quiet and relaxing, close to Bovey Tracey, a lovely small town where you can find really interesting local shops. A perfect place to stay for travelling around this part of Devon, the moors, the coast, lovely towns and beauty spots, and National Trust properties to discover. Thank you Annie, it was a lovely break."

Charlotte - verified booking

"Had an amazing few days here! We were actually upgraded to their Wisteria cottage, due to the previous visitors wanting to stay on for longer (another good sign of a great place to stay!). The place was gorgeously decorated, very comfortable, very clean. There were lots of nice touches to make our stay more comfortable for example, a selection of books, DVD's and games. The bed was so comfortable we didn't want to leave it! It's in a great location, just down the road from the town so easy to nip to the shops after a 5 minute car journey. In the town there are some lovely places to eat. The grounds themselves are quiet and well kept. Anne and Andy were both very welcoming and made us feel at home. Would definitely recommend these cottages and will rebook if I am down that end of the country again. Thank you!"

"An almost perfect stay at Acorn Cottage. The location was great as we were attending a wedding in Chudleigh; only 10 mins away. As well as being nearby to pubs and local amenities. The cottage itself was lovely and big, and provided near enough everything we needed. We did however need an iron and later found out it was located in the games room; this wasn’t noted anywhere. Also, the wifi was not working for any of us, this may be because the router is not in the property? But aside from this, we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay (I slept like a baby, nice beds), we would recommend it and definitely return. Also the owner (who we did not actually see), was indeed very helpful over the phone!"

"Cottage is clean, modern and most of all... beautiful. I loved the wooden interior. The cottage has large windows which give lots of light and lovely views. It's also in the perfect location; a quiet relaxing place with a 5 minute drive to Newton Abbot town centre and perfect if you like to walk. The owners are welcoming, polite, friendly, and extremely hardworking. You will see them working. The welcome gifts were a lovely surprise and a fantastic idea. I would recommend this cottage to anyone. We loved the cottage; we stayed here while we house hunted in Newton Abbot. If the cottage was not a holiday rental; Myself and my partner would have asked to stay here as our home, we loved it that much!"

Andrew - verified booking

"It was a very nice stay and I could imagine going there again - my only disappointment is that there were several things not working - heating didn't work first morning and with young kids this isn't ok - the lights outside at night didn't work - the games room was fantastic but incredibly tired and in need of updating - most things were old and broken - the temperature of the pool only got to 30 on the last day we were there - there was no first aid kit on arrival - all in all just a little disappointing that these small things add up and even though they were fixed in the end it shouldn't require the customer to call and identify these issues."
