Luxury Holiday Cottages

If you are looking for top quality self catering holiday homes then check out the luxury cottages on these pages. Whether these are boutique retreats, cottages near a beach, grand country houses, waterside properties or romantic cottages for two, the properties have all been personally inspected and have been found to offer the very best in self catering accommodation. These 5 star and 4 star gold properties have either been inspected by a national assessing body such as Visit England, Visit Scotland, Visit Wales or the AA and have received their highest accolades, or they have been awarded a luxury category by one of our affiliate partners. The national assessing bodies use a common set of criteria and the star rating indicates the quality and range of facilities available. Comfort, ambiance, customer care and attention to detail are also taken into account. Watch out for an accompanying 'Gold award' (England), or Gold star (AA) which signifies outstanding levels of hospitality and service. It is true that many premier cottages do not apply for grading, so do check the rest of our site as there are some exceptional self catering properties available.
