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.

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.


The land of the red dragon is a tapestry of castle-dotted valleys resounding with the tuneful harmonies of male voice choirs. But there’s more to Wales than that (very pleasing) stereotype. Its rich celtic culture, mining heritage and miles of beautiful beach make it a fascinating destination to visit again and again.


Wild, rugged, and soaked in whisky, Scotland has a romance all of its own. It’s home to some of the United Kingdom’s most beautiful white sand beaches and clear waters, notably those on the remote Hebridean island of Lewis & Harris. And as the home of golf, you’ll find hundreds of links courses, with highlights including St Andrew’s on the east coast and Elie on the west.


This patchwork of counties and cities is a wonder to explore. But the star of the show? London, of course! Practically the whole world awaits you in this unique and culturally diverse metropolis. England’s more traditional charms can be found in the captivating Cornish coastline, the orchards of Kent and Derbyshire’s rugged peaks.

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.
