Not one but two of England’s national parks are in Yorkshire! Add to the Dales and the North York Moors a fabulous coastline with beaches like Scarborough and Bridlington, plus atmospheric ports such as Staithes and Whitby. The glorious cathedral city of York just puts the cherry on the cake for a county ideal for cottage holidays. There are also some excellent log cabin complexes in Yorkshire, and the scenery is familiar from numerous TV series filmed there.


Wales with it’s breathtaking scenery, picturesque coastline, castles and much more! From Pembrokeshire to Snowdonia there are many wonderful holiday cottages in Wales and our partner agencies have compiled this great selection.


Often described as “Cornwall without the crowds” Pembrokeshire is a delightful collection of patchwork fields, dramatic coves and wonderful beaches, in the South West corner of Wales. And the Coast is so spectacular they made it a National Park!


The prettiest part of England? Many people think so and you can see why. The honey-coloured stone makes villages like Upper Slaughter and Broadway a favourite subject for calendars and postcards. And so easy to get to from both the South East and the Midlands.

Norfolk & East Anglia

The shifting coastline of Norfolk means you may visit a historic port far from the sea, or a stretch of dunes that will not be there in ten year’s time. All part of the magic of East Anglia, while the waterways of the Norfolk Broads offer a remarkable contrast.

Peak District

Britain’s most popular National Park for day visitors also has some great self catering accommodation. Typically stone built picturesque cottages, with dramatic scenery on your doorstep in places like Bakewell and Buxton, and Alton Towers not far away for a day out, make the Peak District a popular choice.

South East England

From Kent to the New Forest, and including the North and South Downs, there is much to enjoy in England’s South East corner. Bear in mind that this is an area of high property prices, which has an upward impact on holiday cottage rental prices.

Isle of Wight

A short ferry ride is a journey back in time to a slower, gentler version of England. Cowes, Ventnor and The Needles are all renowned; and the danger of the Isle of Wight is that for some it becomes and addictive experience, drawing you back for holidays time and time again. Dare you try it?
