Holiday Cottages

Choose from a cosy country cottage, a romantic retreat just for two, a fisherman’s cottage by the sea or a large holiday home for a family occasion. Browse cottages with hot tubs, castles to rent, pet friendly cottages and our popular cottages with pools page. These are just some of the properties in our selection of holiday cottages to rent in England, Scotland and Wales.

Or travel a little further afield… Cross the water to discover Ireland’s stunning coastline, sample a pint of the ‘black stuff’ and experience the ‘craic’. Or cross the Channel to France and choose from holiday cottages on the coast to traditional French gites in the famous wine making regions.
