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.

We’re glad you found the cottage so roomy and to your liking with everything you needed but we are sorry you found the road quite busy. I think you must have holidayed when there were road works on the B class road going to the next village and traffic was diverted to ‘our’ wee road to avoid delays. Normally we wouldn’t describe it as busy and many of our guests comment how peaceful and quiet it is. The cottage also is equipped with automatic outside security lights but perhaps they had been accidently turned off.
