Get away from it all and enjoy the luscious scenery of a secluded countryside setting by booking one of these fabulous cosy holiday cottages. Choose from country cottages in England, tranquil gites in France and cottages in Wales with log fires and breathtaking views.
You may prefer to visit the splendid country of Ireland and stay in a traditional Irish cottage - enjoying long leisurely walks before soaking up the Celtic atmosphere in great local pubs. Alternatively, choose a Scottish lodge by a loch or in the mountains and relax as you marvel at the beauty of the great outdoors.
For the more adventurous, look further afield and enjoy the serenity of a country cottage in a hidden overseas location. Pick somewhere in a peaceful forest or mountain setting and enjoy long walks or energetic bike rides.

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.
