Holiday cottages and apartments in Great Britain

Great British breaks (24151)

Discover 1,000s of smashing holiday cottages right on your doorstep. Dotted around some of the most jaw-droppingly stunning parts of the country, these gorgeous places to stay make for great British breaks whatever the weather.



The Victorians popularised British coastal resorts, but more recently we’ve ignored the coast on our doorstep, opting for the Med and further afield. From the glitz of Brighton to the rugged coastline of Cornwall, pack your bucket and spade and don’t forget to pick up a stick of rock when you get there!



If you’d rather escape the madding crowd, go for a rural retreat. We’ve got farmhouses and country cottages in areas of outstanding beauty all over Britain. Fill your days exploring the Brecon Beacons, rambling across the Lake District or scaling the peaks of the Scottish Highlands.
