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.

Gloria - verified booking

"Our stay at the cottage was fantastic,it was nice to be met by the lovely owner kathryn who asked that if we had any suggestions re:the property to let her know, we were very impressed with the comfort and quality of the fixtures and fittings 10/10 we also enjoyed using the woodburner. A lot of thought has gone into this lovely cottage down to the fresh flowers and delicious welcome tray (lovely choice of products, especially the scrumptious homemade cake and fresh eggs from kathryns son williams hens)thank you both, there is also local honey and eggs available to buy should you wish to.A varied selection of games and books and a wii to keep the children entertained. We enjoyed The North Bay Railway and Sea Life Sanctuary in Scarborough,also building sandcastles on Runswick Bay Beach,My grandson Leo says thank you william for your very tasty eggs,leo also loved meeting the 2 friendly dogs and Archie the owner kathryns horse,so all in all a super holiday and would love to stay at S86986 in the future,we would like to wish Paul,Kathryn,Lorraine and William all the best for the future,keep up the brilliant work."

"It's hard to say what the best thing about Bowden is: braving the wind to stand on the private beach at midnight on Christmas Eve; cooking Christmas dinner with red squirrels feeding outside the window; sitting in the conservatory watching the sky get dark across the beautiful grounds; running your hands over the banisters, lovingly restored with 24 coats of varnish; chatting to Peter the owner over coffee; piling into the living room with wine, cake and board games... The house is historic, majestic, magical and beautifully crafted, with space for a large extended family group to eat together and play together, or to spread out over several rooms for a variety of activities. A minor drawback is the disparity between the sweeping grandeur of the first floor and the servants quarters on the second floor: bedroom and bathroom arrangements need some negotiation to keep all group members happy! It was a privilege to be the first guests for Christmas 2017 and to feel that we honoured Peter's vision of bringing his beloved family home back to life for a new chapter in the house's history."

Mrs Susan Oliver - verified booking

"The location of the property was just right. Nice and quiet and about a 5 minute drive from Tenby town centre. Had 2 reserved parking spaces for each cottage. The property was perfect for us with 2 good sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms as well as a toilet downstairs. It has modern furniture with good appliances including washing machine and dishwasher. Beautifully clean. Couldn't find fault with it. Tenby was beautiful with lovely beaches with a lovely town centre with a mixture of shops. Would definitely visit "The Nook" and "The Cranny". Excellent fish & chips at Park Road Fish and Chop Shop. Plenty of places to eat and drink and has the added bonus of a Sainsbury's if you want to cater for yourself. Couldn't believe how cheap it was to park in the card park for the whole day. Just £4 for 24 hours. Would also definitely visit Barafundle Bay beach. Outstanding!"

"We stayed 3 days in S90761 Ashmore. It was well beyond our expectations. In the quiet village of ashmore, it was comfortable to our two families, well equipped, with two bathrooms and a large garden were the kids could play. Even the lovely son of the owner came to enforce our soccer team. The beds are very comfortable, there is plenty of hot water for the showers, but most of all Jemma ( the owner) was very responsive to our questions and provided more then basic amenities. towels, toilet paper, cooking spices etc were available more. Tv are smart and wifi good (10 Mbit). We fell in love with ashmore and the cottage, the easy acces to the numerous tracks thru dorset and surroundings and the airfield were it is easy to charter one off their classic planes. We could give Jemma any suggestions for improvement. Hope visiting again"

Mrs Michelle Redmond - verified booking

"Very clean and well equipped property. Dog proof garden much appreciated and direct access from a few yards down the road onto the Beacon. Also useful utility / boot room. The Ancient Briton pub is excellent for both food, service and will accept children (and dogs if you book ahead). The Pentre Stables had excellent hacking straight onto the Brecon Beacons on sensible horses / ponies for all standards (www.pentrestables.co.uk). Henrhyd Falls well worth the visit and climb, and Brecon Market is a little tired but a good excuse to visit the town and there are canal boats to hire and good places to eat. The drive is a lovely sight see in itself from the house to Brecon. "
