Well known for its rugged coastline and traditional English countryside, the West Country offers a diverse array of breathtaking landscapes. Whether it’s pristine beaches, picture-perfect villages or dramatic river valleys, between them, Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset offer some of the UK’s most stunning scenery.
A varied landscape where mountains tower above lush river valleys and glassy lakes, interrupted only by charming towns, villages and many historic castles. The stunning coastline offers 750 miles of flawless beaches and hidden coves, and Cardiff offers a vibrant atmosphere and plenty of cultural discoveries.
Scotland is a land of real diversity. Revel in the vibrancy of Edinburgh and Glasgow or enjoy solidarity on the peaceful islands of Skye or Lewis. Walk beside gentle lochs or rushing rivers, climb towering mountains and discover hidden beaches and ancient battle grounds. Not only that but Scotland is swathed in historic castles, stately homes and attractions to suit just about anyone.
From the huge open skies and vast beaches in Norfolk to the traditional seaside charm in Essex, the East of England is a varied holiday destination. Taking in Suffolk, Lincolnshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, you can also enjoy stunning countryside, cultural cities, historic castles and several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Encompassing the likes of The Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire, a holiday in the Heart of England guarantees a traditional English break. Get lost in the stunning countryside, explore cultural cities, market towns and picture-perfect villages. Not only that but you can discover stately homes, peaceful gardens and beautiful castles.
Home to some of the UK’s most loved Victorian seaside towns, the South Coast promises perfect family memories full of fish and chips and ice cream! Head slightly inland and you can enjoy the likes of the New Forest in Hampshire, the South Downs in Sussex and cultural cities like Canterbury in Kent.
There are many contrasting landscapes in the North of England, from the unspoilt mountains in the Lake District to the vast rolling countryside of Yorkshire. If you’re more interested in the coast then Northumberland’s stunning beaches and Yorkshire’s popular fishing villages will not disappoint.
With so many beautiful places in the UK designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a testament to just how special much of the country’s landscapes are. Choose from the peaks of Snowdonia, the honey-coloured villages of the Cotswolds, the unspoilt wilderness of the Cairngorms.

Part of The Travel Chapter
Back in 1989 the Morris family established ‘Farm & Country Holidays’ in the South West and began letting 100 properties in the rural area. As our portfolio grew across the country we rebranded as holidaycottages.co.uk. Today, we’re proud to be one of the leading accommodation providers in the UK with a collection of over 5,000 properties, but the same family values remain at our core.
We pride ourselves on offering a personal service to both our customers and the owners that choose to let with us. It is our mission to ensure you feel heard and supported when you contact us.
Despite our national reach our HQ is still in beautiful North Devon with support all over the UK. The holidaycottages.co.uk team of 200+ is growing quickly so we’re able to work fast and respond to our customers’ and owners' needs. Our employees are travel experts who enjoy helping people. We invest in technology, research, customer support and great design to ensure your experience with us is memorable.
As the flagship brand within the Travel Chapter group, quality service has and will always remain our top priority. From helping customers find their perfect self-catering holiday to ensuring their expectations are met when they step through the door, you can rely on our team to deliver.
Our achievements have been recognised through many awards, but it’s the continued positive reviews from our guests resulting in gold partner status with independent provider ‘Feefo’ that makes everything we do worthwhile.
We are always looking for exceptional talent; someone who can play a part in growing our business. If you think you could be that someone, head over to the travelchapter.com careers page and let us know why.
