We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to cottage holidays in the UK. Beautiful properties are scattered from coast to country in classic holiday destinations such as Cornwall and the Lake District, and in places far from the beaten track.
The ultimate no-fuss retreat, cottage holidays cater to all types of traveller. Gather the family in a self-catering cottage by the sea and spend a weekend bouncing between the beach and the dinner table, or pick a cosy couple’s hideaway in the countryside and snuggle up with a good book – it’s really up to you. And, Fido doesn’t need to be left behind either: many properties allow pets, so you can bring the whole clan.
With so much choice out there, it’s important to get the details right for your cottage holiday. And at TravelSupermarket, we know that it is possible to find everything you need in a cottage holiday at a price that suits you. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Snaptrip so you can compare more than 60,000 holiday cottages and cosy lodges across the UK to find your ideal match.
Cottage holidays cover all bases, whether you’re looking for luxury beachside digs or a place where your pooch can stretch its legs.
Grab some bubbly and get among the bubbles. When you book a holiday cottage with a hot tub, ramping up the romance on your couple’s escape is as easy as turning on the jets. Of course, a little pampering isn’t just for couples – cottages with hot tubs are just as great for a getaway with a group of friends.
Before you book, remember to check the size of the hot tub, its location (is it inside or outside?) and any extras that are important to you, such as additional outdoor seating.
Pet owners will know that taking your pup on holiday isn’t always easy. But when it comes to cottage holidays, you’re in luck: many cottages in the UK are now dog-friendly and will have plenty of room for your dog to roam.
Do read the T&Cs of your cottage before you book. ‘Dog-friendly cottages’ can mean different things to different property owners, so it’s important to be aware before parting with your cash. Equally, it may pay to research dog-friendly attractions in the area so you don’t end up leaving your pooch at home while you explore.
A holiday is a treat in itself, but who doesn’t like a little extra luxury while away? When you compare holiday cottages with our partners at Snaptrip, you can filter your results for luxury stays, and search for other luxe touches that will elevate your holiday.
For example, think about whether you might want a games room to keep the brood busy or a heated indoor pool or sauna. Pay special attention to bathroom features (is a rainfall showerhead the epitome of extravagance for you?), as well as the views and furnishings. Extra research into the little things will pay off here.
Enjoy long coastal walks, get your sea legs on for marine life-spotting boat trips, bring buckets and spades for some serious sandcastle building, or give surfing a go: on a beachside cottage holiday, you’ll have no shortage of things to do.
From Scotland’s most secluded shores to the busy coastal resorts we all know and love, you’ll find a huge range of beachside boltholes all over the UK. And, whether you prefer beachy digs seconds from the shore or a clifftop cottage complete with photo-worthy ocean views, a self-catering beachside cottage will become your home away from home for the summer.
Home to gorgeous beaches, beautiful national parks and cities famous the world over, the UK takes some beating as a holiday destination. Wondering where to go next? We have some ideas.Read moreabout Great Britain’s top 10 staycation destinations
