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.

Confirmed Guest - verified booking

"Property was clean, well-furnished, comfortable and warm (once we got the heating going; see below). A generous supply of logs for the open fire was provided, with permission to take more from the adjoining barn. Property was quiet and peaceful.We were advised by the housekeeper that we could access the property after 2.00 p.m. rather than the standard 4.00 p.m., which was helpful. We arrived about 3.00 p.m. at which point the heating was not on and the house was cold (bearing in mind this was one of the coldest weeks of the winter). Also, the fridge and freezer were turned off (we note that other guests had commented on this in the visitors' book; it would be helpful for the fridge and freezer to be cold for the purposes of receiving supermarket deliveries etc.).The oil fired heating in the single storey part of the property produced a strong and unpleasant smell of oil when running; we wonder if the burners require cleaning/adjustment?A number of pieces of crockery were badly chipped and a few glasses were cracked (not by us!).There were no spare bin liners or food recycling bags (despite the dire warnings about the council's strict recycling rules).Although generally well-equipped, there were a few kitchen basics missing, e.g. a fish slice (useful for flipping fried eggs even if no fish cookery occurs!)."

"Wonderful house, well stocked! Excellent bedrooms and en-suites. Impressive private drive as you approach the pretty farmhouse. My only negative comment and it's being fussy is the sad looking and not particularly comfort sofa in the second reception/kids den. But that is me being picky. Perfect for a large family. Lovely garden. Very generous welcome hamper. Main reception is very comfortable with new sofas. Dining room perfect for 10. Kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. Nice to have Blu Ray players in the reception rooms. Fab garden- safe for children. Would recommend without hesitation and in fact I already have. Cleanliness is also a must for me and this was exactly what I hoped for. Thank you!"

"The cottage was very very clean, no problems there. The bedrooms and the bathrooms were also very good. We hated the three settees in the main room, very uncomfortable, not very clean and very shabby for the price. No pleasure in sitting in that room. Although there were 5 good bedrooms, it wasn't really a place for 10 adults.. We were only a party of 9 but it was very tight around the dining room table. The lawn and the gardens were immaculate and when we requested outside furniture, it arrived within 10 minutes. Very impressive. Looking again at the settees on your web site, it's amazing what photographs can make a place look like."

"Absolutely beautiful property. And perfect for gathering large family groups together for tea. However we had 12 days of picture perfect weather!! No rain. No dryer was not a problem for us - clothes were put on ‘horse’ but could affect long term/winter visitors. Owner did offer use of a dryer if needed. And we missed a walk to pub / it was closed, but being restored, although not an easy walk anyway. Car very necessary for all shopping, long driveway. IHowever it was a delightful visit and everyone enjoyed the house,garden and surrounding walks. The Harrison’s, Key West, Florida"

"Excellent property, just beautifully furnished with lovely big communal areas. Garden and grounds also perfectly maintained and very quiet. Our host Tracy was fantastic, had cleaned the farmhouse impeccably for us and even came to meet our Tesco delivery when we were stuck in traffic! She was a great host. Only minor grumble was a slight damp/drains smell near the main entrance but it didn't spoil our stay. We all said we really want to return again soon and I have already started recommending it to friends!"
