Boutique Cottages

Welcome to our selection of luxury, opulent and boutique holiday cottages. If you’re looking for a holiday to remember then look no further!

What makes our selection so unique is that each property has been handpicked by the team at Historic UK. We’ve been rather rigorous in our definition of ’boutique’ to make the next few pages showcase some of the finest holiday cottages in the land.

We’ve included oast houses, beachside retreats and superbly renovated barn conversions, and as ever most of the properties also have a wealth of history and heritage. To begin your search simply scroll down or hit the “Browse all…” button at the top of the page to filter by size.
