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.

I'm very sorry you did not enjoy your stay, and thank you for providing feedback. We believe we present the cottage honestly: as a cosy, comfortable and family-friendly, as well as dog-friendly place to stay. We don't try to present it as a luxury cottage, and the prices reflect what is on offer, with everything included, as well as making no charge for dogs. The living room furniture was only purchased 2 years ago and two of the four beds were new last year - we constantly renew furniture and equipment on a rotational basis. The table tennis shed in the garden is mainly provided for kids to play in when the weather is not so great - and they seem to love it (as well as many of our adult guests) just as it is - a bit quirky, but fun to hang out in. We do try our best to provide a comfortable base at a reasonable cost for our guests to enjoy Skye, and a lot of people come back to stay more than once at Wild Orchid Cottage. I'm very sorry, and sad, that we didn't manage live up to expectations on this occasion.
