UK Holiday Cottages

The Personalised (mainly) UK Directory of Holiday Cottages

Most of the holiday cottages on this website have been inspected at first hand (for The Good Holiday Cottage Guide itself) or been recommended by visitors - so you can depend on their quality.

Among the most popular searches people make in looking for self catering in the UK are secluded cottages to rent in Norfolk, pet friendly holiday accommodation in Yorkshire, self catering in Scotland, remote Lake District cottages, country cottages in Wales, luxury holiday houses by the sea in Cornwall and weekend cottages to hire in the Cotswolds. We also feature most other parts of the UK and Ireland. Many cottages will accept dogs and other family pets are often welcome.

Ever since the cottage guide was first published, 30 years ago, we've prided ourselves on the quality of the holiday properties featured - including apartments, timber lodges, mansions, castles, converted windmills and other interesting places that we have been recommended to and would stay in ourselves. Please contact us for details.

Since dealing with holiday cottages (from 1983 onwards) we've seen standards improve almost beyond recognition. UK wide, we rarely hear now of below-par accommodation.

UK self catering used to be 'the poor relation' among home-based holidaymakers, but now staying in top notch cottages is as chic as it comes. Hotels need to look to their laurels: a comfortable holiday cottage can offer the best of both worlds...
