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 Juliet Summers - verified booking

"Great property and well set up. Really nice to turn up to fresh milk and choc chip cockles waiting for us. We stayed with our two sons aged 6 and 4. Great holiday cottage as pictured and described, well kitted out and perfect location. Boys loved bunk beds and 3 storey layout. Easy short walk into town so could leave car and get to restaurants, shops, beach etc. Lots of great places within 45 mins drive too - recommend the Tank Museum! Easy to book and great directions and information provided. Would book again. Thanks."

Mrs Vanessa Mcloughlin - verified booking

"Full marks for all aspects - the cottage, your company, the area and of course, this year, the weather! A lovely, comfortable property in a beautiful and peaceful location. A broken window blind was repaired as soon as we reported it so therefore we cannot fault the Suffolk Secrets maintenance team who done a sterling job and made our stay tremendously terrific! The large outside area was spectacular for our grandchildren and the private garden was lovely and peaceful for bbqs and chilling. "

Mrs CHRISTINE DALTON - verified booking

"This is a great property in a good location - it is up a hill which gives great views but at the end of a day it's a steep hill!! Swanage area is great for a holiday - would recommend the Steam Train to Corfe Castle, boat trips to Poole harbour and the bus to Sandbanks & ferry to Brownsea Island. The best meal out we had was at Athelhampton House and Gardens. All Saints Church was a lively, welcoming place to attend a service."

Mrs M Schofield - verified booking

"S13373 was perfect for our short break in Mid Wales. The property is modern and clean and has all the facilities you need for a relaxing holiday. Pool table and table tennis on site were a great bonus for the kids. Karen welcomed us to the property and even provided a lovely welcome pack with some local produce and even an Easter egg for the kids - would highly recommend."

Mrs Gillian Morrison - verified booking

"The house is ideally located being a short walk from both beach and shops. It's very comfortable and well equipped. The only downside was the twisty, narrow staircase - we had to take care not to slip. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly consider coming again. Southwold has something for everyone. Good location, well equipped, clean and comfortable."
