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.

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.

Thank-you for the feedback, its always appreciated as it helps us to keep on improving the cottages.....Its a nice problem to have being too warm! - especially in Scotland. My only suggestion would be to turn the valves down on the actual radiators to help control the heat, but as I'm sure you can appreciate, its hard to get the temperature just right for everyone. We've just recently had a new boiler installed, so its more a case of us getting used to how much better it is at producing heat.
I'll mention to the cleaner re the hoover bags and ask her to ensure its changed.
Glad you had a good time, and hope you come back again soon.
