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.
A very well appointed cottage/apartment with plenty of space for two. Beautiful views from the rear of the property and well sited to explore Lewis. One downside is the oil factory just down the lane … More

Many thanks for the lovely review it is much appreciated. The Cottage is in the grounds of Kenegie Manor which is specified in the cottage report on Trip Advisor. Tolpedn is privately owned by myself and the owners of the site kindly allow my guests to have full use of all the facilities, I don't however have any control on how good the facilities are but the site is generally a very quiet and peaceful one, with no loud music/live entertainment which guests do appreciate, apologies for the cars coming and going, the site itself, and Cornwall is busy at this time of year.
I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you again when your next in the area.
