Cottages with beautiful gardens

With the clocks about to change and the days getting longer, it’s finally beginning to feel like spring. At this time of year the outside world starts to come to life once again, with lambs in the field and hedgerows starting to sprout with colour. If spending time outdoors is important to you, then why not book yourself a holiday in one of our cottages with beautiful gardens.


Sutton Grange Garden Cottage, Yorkshire

Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, Sutton Grange Garden Cottage is accessed through the owners’ beautifully-kept walled gardens. There is a peaceful and serene atmosphere here, with large lawns perfect for games such as cricket or rounder’s, or for simply laying down a blanket and relaxing with a book. There is also a summer house, BBQ, picnic area, orchards and a woodland walk where you can spot frogs in the wildlife pond. Not only that, but if you fancy an afternoon nap, there’s also a hammock!


Wooda House, Devon

This fantastic five-bedroomed property is just what you need if you’re planning a family holiday this year. Wooda House is set in a rural location in North Devon with direct access to rocky cliffs and peaceful secluded beaches. It stands within three acres of its own garden and woodland, bordered by a wildlife-rich stream. There’s also a decked area where you can sit back and relax in the sunshine, while the kids explore the gardens, playing hide and seek amongst the trees.


No. 10 Elan Village, Wales

This Grade II listed property is real gem, sitting in a rural position in the Elan Valley in West Wales. What’s really great about this property is that you have direct access into RSPB Carngafallt Nature Reserve, so for wildlife enthusiasts, this is a great choice. The garden at No.10 Elan Valley has been landscaped to offer plenty of seating areas for relaxing, as well as flourishing borders and a well-kept lawn. During the summer, there’s nowhere better to be relaxing, than surrounded by beautiful gardens and rolling countryside.


Farmhouse Manor, Warwickshire

The unique 17th century manor house is surrounded by 19 acres of enchanting grounds and gardens in Warwickshire. Extensive lawns stretch out in front of the property and sweep alongside peaceful lakes and out towards the magical bluebell wood where you can spend time wandering the pathways - a land of discoveries for little ones. The rose gardens burst with colour and provides a beautiful backdrop for any stay at Farmhouse Manor. These 19 acres of bliss reveal many hidden corners for you to explore.


Gardeners Cottage, Cornwall

The aptly named Gardeners Cottage in Cornwall is set within beautiful gardens which are now well established after first being planted in the 19th century.

Large lawns also offer plenty of room for running around, which is great if you have little ones or dogs with you.


The Grange East Wing, Somerset

The great thing about the Grange East Wing in Somerset is that it is within easy reach of beautiful Bath, yet it enjoys a peaceful rural position, with far-reaching views. The Georgian Country house is set in its own gardens with beautiful seating areas, a charming summer house which looks out over the wildlife pond, a traditional walled garden where you can stroll peacefully and an orangery. Although the property is attached to the owner’s house, privacy is promised and use of the gardens is free.
