Let's find your perfect cottage

A crowd gathering to book a self-catering holiday cottage in 2016

Welcome to Cottage Holidays

We’ve been providing people with top quality self-catering holiday accommodation for over twenty years – and we’re really rather good at it.

Here you can explore every cottage from our family of thirteen local companies, allowing you to benefit from a national offering and expert local knowledge, giving you the best of both worlds. They can be found in the most desirable parts of Britain, including Norfolk, Cornwall, Yorkshire, Wales, Suffolk, Devon, Kent, Sussex, Lancashire, Dorset, Cumbria and the Lake District, and in each area is a team who use their in-depth knowledge to find the best possible cottage to offer you. 

We bring together nearly 3,000 cottages for you to pick from, ranging from cosy holiday homes for two, perfect for a romantic getaway, to large opulent houses suitable for the largest family gathering or friends holiday. Choose from traditional cottages in the countryside, modern apartments in lively towns, barn conversions, renovated fishing cottages and some truly unique holiday homes that you won’t find anywhere else.

But we know that a holiday is not just about the accommodation. It’s about what you do, whether you want to be climbing every mountain and fording every stream, travelling back in time to explore the UK’s rich heritage or venturing out every day knowing that there will be plenty to entertain the kids from dawn to dusk. This is why we have our holiday inspiration section – dozens of guides to help you pick the perfect cottage and spend your holiday doing exactly what you want to do.
