We’re on call, year-round, just waiting to whisk you and your partner away on the trip of a lifetime or a weekend break, however soon you want to leave. 



Properties where perfection is guaranteed


Sometimes, booking a break at the last-minute can mean compromising on luxury. Well, at Last Minute Cottages, we don’t think this should ever be the case. Just because you and your partner haven’t had weeks to plan the perfect escape, doesn’t mean you deserve anything but the best.

We’re home to just about every kind of self catering holiday cottage imaginable, ready to make even the wildest holiday dreams come true. Maybe the two of you crave curling up in front of a roaring log fire or indulging in a late-night dip in your indoor pool? Why not let out your inner aristocrat, with a weekend break in a country house or plan a rustic romantic retreat in a rural log cabin? 


We’ll find the perfect place for you


When you close your eyes and picture your perfect romantic getaway, what do you see? A sandy beach beside a tranquil, turquoise horizon? A secluded log cabin nestled in miles of rolling green hills? Whatever your idea of your ideal couple’s holiday, you’re guaranteed to find it here in the UK.


From the award-winning beaches of Cornwall to the rugged moors of North Yorkshire’s National Park, the UK is home to some of the most romantic breaks. If you’re looking for stunning sunsets, book a manor house in the Lake District and watch the day end from the banks of Lake Windermere. Or lose yourself in the wild woodland of the New Forest, where ponies roam free.
