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.

Mrs Sarah Asplin - verified booking

"S97404 provided first class, flexible accommodation in a peaceful setting. It was spotlessly clean with lovely bathrooms, well equipped kitchen area and a high standard of decor. In addition to a lovely communal garden area with outside seating and barbecue, we all had our own fenced outdoor space too (ideal for the dogs and young children). It fulfilled our needs perfectly - 3 generation family party of six adults, 2 year old, 3 year old and four dogs. Spacious games room perfect for spending time together and the large dining table ideal for our celebration supper (seats 12) . Perfectly located for visiting good beaches and many attractions. The hampers we found on our arrival were a lovely touch and the dogs and children really appreciated the extras left for them too. Would highly recommend either for families or group of friends. "

Mrs J Smith - verified booking

"We would thoroughly recommend this property. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The welcome pack was the best we have seen. The location was beautiful- views of countryside/garden from most windows, including the owners' lovely oasthouse. The interior of this converted stable is tastefully done, and the log burner added to the relaxing atmosphere. Beds were comfortable, and there were lots of thoughtful additions- dressing gowns and hairdryer meant less to pack. The only thing to consider is that the stairs may be a bit steep for elderly or infirm."

Faye & Family - verified booking

"Thank you for a wonderful long weekend. Your cottage and farm are beautiful. We loved meeting Jovi, Kassie, your flock, the Dexters, hens and ducks. Linda you made our visit very special with the recommended local walks, loan of the local map and delicious eggs. The Hen eggs made superb poached and duck eggs a cracking omelette. We like to cook when we are on holiday and the kitchen had everything we needed. Look out for Red Kits and Buzzards overhead."

A previous customer - verified booking

"I would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay at 89 Pump Street - it is a pretty and cosy cottage with a real suntrap courtyard garden at the back plus it is so well equipped with everything you could need.  We would love to return one day. Orford was a new location for us and being within walking distance to such wonderful places to eat and drink at, plus Orford Castle and the quayside etc, was just the icing on the cake."

Ms Stringer - verified booking

"It was exactly what I wanted and the hosts Ian and Linda, were absolutely wonderful - they couldn't have been kinder. It was a perfect holiday and 'S11424' is perfect as it is - I loved every minute. Thank you to the 'team' as they listened to my requirements and suggested 'S11424' (its not in the brochure yet and I don't have a computer/internet at home) and they were spot on. It was perfect for me!"
