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 review and rating and we are pleased you enjoyed the facilities at North Hill. I am sorry you felt that you should not be charged for using the Sauna (£1 for 20 mins coin operated) and the hot tub. The hot tub can be used without cost. We feel these small additional costs are justified where there is a heavy use of electricity or heavy wear and tear on a pool table for example.
We believe our cottages are keenly priced and the cost for Ivy Cottage in this case was £435 for the first week in September. The price was pushed up over £500 because the guests in this case chose to book through a third party who charge a commission, and they bought two dogs which are charged at £25 each. This charge for dogs is fairly standard and many cottages would not take 2 dogs.
