Houses in United Kingdom and Cottages by Holiday Lettings

Why United Kingdom?

The United Kingdom is like a delicious, four-course dinner: each dish has its own distinctive flavour, but together, they create an unforgettable experience. From Scotland’s dramatic landscapes and England’s country lanes, to the lush valleys of Wales and rugged coast of Northern Ireland, prepare to be dazzled by all the UK has to offer.

Historic Cities

The United Kingdom boasts an array of cities to explore, all with different personalities. The ancient city walls of York and Chester reveal the England of medieval times, while industrial powerhouses-turned-nightlife-hubs like Manchester, Glasgow and Liverpool celebrate the UK’s technological pedigree. Other jewels include captivating Edinburgh, cosmopolitan Cardiff, historic Canterbury and delightful St David’s, the UK’s smallest city.

Quiet & Quaint

While the honey-coloured cottages and historic market towns of the Cotswolds never fail to win over visitors, seclusion can be found in many other corners of the UK. There’s the pure, soul-stirring beauty of England’s Lake District and Wales’ Snowdonia National Park, or the Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Coast To Coast

As an island nation, the UK seaside has a special place in the hearts of its inhabitants. Traditional amusement arcades and donkey rides are best enjoyed in resorts like Blackpool, Scarbrough and Skegness. For quiet coves and incredible seafood, Cornish towns like Padstow are rivalled only by the unbelievable beaches and produce of Scotland.

Places to stay in United Kingdom

Places to visit in United Kingdom


Run away to wild Scotland, a country of mighty crags, ancient cities and fierce tradition. From the rolling borderlands at the foot of the Cheviot hills, Scotland rises past lochs, firths and fells into the imposing Highlands. More remote still, its famed islands invite you to escape the bustle of modern life, even if just for a while.


England’s fascinating history and heritage is nothing short of mindblowing. From Stonehenge to Shakespeare, the wild Yorkshire Moors to London’s West End, there’s so much love about this endlessly enchanting country.

Northern Ireland

Glacier-carved landscapes give Northern Ireland a somewhat savage and yet exhilarating beauty. And you’ll find a different kind of beauty on the streets of Belfast, where the region’s ‘Troubles’ have inspired some of the most moving works of public art in the world.


Epic mountains, rousing choirs, stunning scenery and a lyrical language; Wales may be small, but its landscape and culture is mighty. Expect a warm ‘croeso’ (welcome) as bright and cheery as a daffodil and rugby-pitch loads of fun when you visit this extraordinary country.

Things to do in United Kingdom

Titanic Belfast

See the refurbished dockyards where the doomed ship was built, as well as artefacts from the sinking in the museum.

The Natural History Museum

While it’s brilliant for the little ones, you’re never too old to marvel at the natural world. And this is the place to do it.

Snowdonia National Park

Hike to Snowdon’s summit or take the Mountain Railway. Either way, the Welsh coast’s peaceful panoramas are awe-inspiring.

Edinburgh’s Royal Mile

Take in the city’s magnificent castle walls, Old Town, National Parliament and Holyrood Palace.


Discover the mysteries of prehistoric England as you explore this immense stone monument in Wiltshire.

Giant’s Causeway

Iconic and other-worldly, these fascinating hexagonal rock formations look like piles of giant’s coins.
