Holiday Cottages In The United Kingdom

Best holiday cottage locations

We have gathered some of the best holiday cottage locations across the UK to help you with your search.


Suited very much to beach enthusiasts, Cornwall is England's little corner of sand, sea and sun. And located in the south of the UK, this Cornish gem is one of many areas of outstanding natural beauty.

For the young at heart, Cornwall offers some of the best surfing in England, especially at spots like Porthleven, where the waves are great for experienced surfers. But from buzzing galleries to an indoor tropical rainforest, there's lots to enjoy in this county.


With long sandy beaches, rolling countryside, ancient moors and postcard villages, Devon is a varied landscape. For the walkers among us, there is the wilderness of Dartmoor with the ancient Wistman's Woods. Dog-friendly cottages are popular in the area, and there are plenty of dog-friendly beaches, pubs and restaurants.

For historians, a strong Roman presence has made its mark on many of the towns dotting the countryside, especially Exeter with its Roman history and 11th-century cathedral. A large number of holiday homeowners choose Devon as it is a friendly, welcoming family location that offers a variety of attractions, scenery and wildlife unseen throughout many parts of the UK.

Lake District

Otherwise known as 'The Lakes', the Lake District's natural beauty, wildlife and rural charm have been an inspiration to many artists and writers, such as Ruskin and Wordsworth. The Lake District is very much a place of natural beauty, observation and discovery. Popular with walkers and hikers, the fells and mountains ensure there is no shortage of walking available.

For those looking for a more relaxing trip, museums are sprinkled across the landscape, such as The World of Beatrix Potter and the Windermere Jetty Museum. There are an enormous variety of activities at Lake Windermere where you can learn something new or pick up a hobby such as sailing or windsurfing.


Known for its rugged countryside and being submerged in history, Northumberland holds snapshots of some of the most critical changes in British history. Probably the most famous historical feature of Northumberland is the presence that the Romans had in the region. You can walk from Wallsend in Newcastle and follow Hadrian's wall all the way across the country to Carlisle.

Northumberland is also the county in the UK with the most castles, with the Heritage Coast having four castles in the space of 20 miles, including Bamburgh Castle. Northumberland is not all history though. It is also renowned for its stunning coastal scenery and breathtaking beaches.

Best holiday cottage types

We've put some of the most popular cottage types together. This should help you find the perfect property from our library of thousands of!

Last-minute luxury cottages

If you want luxury accommodation at the last minute, choose one of our late availability luxury cottages, for a fraction of the price. For many people, luxury means different things. For some, it's a jacuzzi or a pool; for others, it's a property with high-quality furnishings and a great location. By looking through our wide range of luxury cottages, you'll be able to see what's available and book with confidence.

A luxury cottage is a property that offers you the very best last-minute holiday possible. National assessing bodies such as Visit England, Visit Scotland, Visit Wales or the AA have awarded these cottages with four or five-star ratings. These registered luxury cottages excel in comfort, ambience, customer care and attention to detail.

Last-minute romantic cottages for two

Celebrating a birthday, anniversary or just fancy a mini-break together? Our wide range of romantic cottages for two is sure to make any occasion magical. Our library of cottages for couples ranges from secluded getaways to beachside cottages and even more unique retreats such as apartments in castles.

A last-minute romantic cottage will be marked with a heart symbol, meaning it's ideal for your romantic getaway. Having a self-catering cottage means you can have some time together without being bothered by staff. You can be relaxed in the knowledge that you have your slice of heaven just for the two of you.

Last-minute cottages with swimming pools

Pools are not an everyday part of a house design in Britain, but more and more people are adding a pool to their homes as summer temperatures rise and the advantages become apparent. A holiday cottage with a pool offers space where you can relax, keep fit or just have fun.

There has undoubtedly been an increase in pool numbers when it comes to holiday homes and many of our cottages have pools as part of the package. Pools can be shared between a group of cottages or entirely private.

Last-minute cottages with hot tubs

Whether you are planning a romantic break, an adventurous getaway or a family holiday, a hot tub always helps you relax. We've got tonnes of cottages with hot tubs at affordable prices, across every location in the UK.

As hot tubs are compact, properties in the middle of a buzzing city can easily have them and the same goes for cottages in the middle nowhere. After a long romantic walk, a day's surfing or taking the family cycling through the woods, everyone will want to jump in a hot tub and relax those muscles. Have a browse and find the perfect hot tub cottage for you.
