Fantastic UK holidays are available at thousands of private holiday homes dotted up and down the country. Whether you fancy cream teas in Devon, vibrant city breaks in London or a Highland fling in Scotland, there are plenty of UK breaks that really cut the mustard.
Explore England and its varied landscape – spend your break in a charming Cotswold cottage or visit the Lake District or the Norfolk Broads. In Wales, book a city break in Cardiff or Swansea, test out your surfing skills on the Gower or find out why so many fall in love with Snowdonia and Anglesey.
Go to Scotland to join the crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Military Tattoo. You could take to the slopes in Aviemore or get back to nature on the Isle of Skye. Northern Ireland has plenty to tempt the traveller too: visit Belfast, the walled city of Derry or see the natural beauty of the Fermanagh Lakelands.
“Another great stay” This is the second time we have stayed in these properties. Beautifully maintained, great communication, little things that make a holiday rental a home from home, including a pint of milk on arrival. We'll be back.

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.
