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.

Christine - verified booking

"On arrival we had to ring up to ask where the back door key was, no information about the property, there was a folder which was hidden under the tv not on the table where you would expect. As you walked in there was a terrible chemical smell and lots of ant killer everwhere. The main bathroom toilet had not been cleaned and was covered in excrement. There were tiny little flies all over the kitchen which we quickly became covered in and had to spend the first part of our holiday killing. Also there were dead flies in the bath. The upstairs shower door hardly opens as it catches on the ceiling within a couple of feet. Also the water is dangerously hot and could easily burn a child, the setting needs to be altered, this made using the shower difficult due to the lack of space and the burning hot water. On the plus side, the kitchen is large and well equipped (although I couldn't find any egg cups). The garden is a great size and the beds were comfortable. All in all it could be very good with a little more effort on cleanliness and sorting out the above difficulties. The location is pretty remote you have to go a long way to get anywhere with any shops etc."

"There was no wi-fi, as advertised, until the last couple of days. The new managers admit they intend to refurbish the development, but our view is that they should have done it before the season started. The manager responded immediately to suggestions re the hardness of the mattress, and some cleaning. However, the carpet and rug were bald in places. The rug is fit for the bin. The kitchen units needed a more thorough cleaning, but were shabby and in need of replacement. The pine toothbrush holder (holes in wood type) in the bathroom.... we'll leave to your imagination. We didn't use it. The pine towel rail was in a similar state. Hence, the overall initial impression was not good. However, we did stay the week. It had good views over the fields, and was a very quiet location.We did not use the pool (we were too busy exploring the coast), or the restaurant. There is a good range of dvd's to borrow for free, and a games room. We would not stay again, simply because we like to move to new areas to explore."

"We have just stayed at S37795 for 10 days and could quite happily have extended our holiday. The kitchen, although small, is well kitted out including a washing machine and full sized fridge freezer plus all utensils. The bed was super comfy, plus bedroom had full length mirror and a good amount of hangers in the wardrobe, which is fab. The lounge was quite cosy with lots of lovely finishing touches and a nice little conservatory all gave a homely feel. Our only gripe was the parking! Although it states that there is designated parking for the cottage in the description, this is mostly taken up by customers going to the pub right opposite, or customers parking right outside the kitchen window, which felt quite intrusive. But we would definitely stay here again, as this is not a major issue, but I feel it should be mentioned. As I say, we would absolutely stay at S37795 again and definitely recommend it"

"Fantastic holiday apartment, well equipped had everything we needed. The views from the apartment are amazing and listening to the sound of the waves when the tide was in it was amazing and relaxing,i didn't want our holiday to end. We were very lucky with weather. Local amenities are great, Appledore had alot to offer, we enjoyed the boat racing event from our own comfort didn't have to leave the house. Lovely places to eat Seagate pub serves amazing food, and also dont miss the best fish and chips from Sylvester fish shop. Also local shop John's was very convenient.Appledore is convenient to travel to other place,Westward Ho! Is only 10 minutes drive with good beach and you can easily access other towns nearby. Lots to do and see. I will definetly be going back."

John - verified booking

"We were initially pleased with the parking bay however inside was less impressive particularly the persistent smell of gas in the cooking area, more strong first thing in the morning. On the top floor the room was spacious and comfortable but spoiled by the condensation inside the large velux style windows the frames of which were severely corroded and had regularly leaked leaving many unsightly rust stains both below and around the frames. The cleanliness of the toilets left much to be desired and the fact that several table lamps had either failed bulbs or even no bulb at all was disappointing when simple care could have vastly improved the residential experience in a well positioned apartment with super beach views and great access to the beach."
