Cosy Coastal or Classic Countryside?
The UK is full of wonderful destinations for a holiday. From its edges where the sea crashes against her rocky cliffs, sandy beaches, and flows into rivers, to her centre where rolling hills and high peaks dominate the skyline and sweeping valleys and pretty woodland create tapestries of green and golden hues across the landscape, there are so many choices for your next cottage holiday!
The UK is blessed with a dramatic and beautifully diverse coastline. Soft golden sand can be found in all directions. The South West is home to some of the best beaches in the world; the Atlantic crashes daily onto its shores making it a haven for surfers and water sports enthusiasts, and the long stretches of golden sand make romantic breaks and family holidays full of seaside fun. There are also plenty of hidden gem beaches tucked around corners in cliffs and coves that are perfect for picnics and beach barbecues on sunny evenings. To see the stunning landscapes of the beaches in the region why not walk along the South West Coast Path. Our Coastal Cottages are all within five miles from the UK’s best beaches, some even offer stunning sea views so that each morning you can wake up to the sounds of the waves crashing and let the sea breeze blow through your open window. From cosy fisherman’s cottages in picturesque harbour towns, to chic beachside apartments situated right on the waterfront, you’ll be spoilt for choice with our collection of Coastal Cottages.
Away from the coast, the UK is abundant with natural beauty in the form of National Parks, rural towns and villages, mountains and hills, and miles of lush green countryside. Scotland is a wonderful destination for an active holiday. You can walk the mountain trails and hills of the Cairngorms or take loch-side walks to the water’s edge, a beautiful place to stop for a picnic! Wales is also a haven for walkers as its three National Parks offer stunning landscapes and well-travelled paths up mountains, through woodlands, and into steep valleys where rivers and waterfalls flow. In the countryside of the UK, there are also plenty of towns and cities to visit, whether you want to immerse yourself in the culture and visit historic landmarks and castles or if you prefer to visit the shops and boutiques, there’s plenty to do instead of days on the beach! Our collection of cottages in the countryside are perfect for cottage holidays where you can relax and unwind. If you want to relax in a gorgeous barn conversion or snuggle up in front of the log fire in a traditional farmhouse, we have your perfect country escape.
