Top UK Holiday Cottage Destinations


Cornwall is one of the most famous holiday destinations in the United Kingdom. Located in the southwestern tip of England, Cornwall does not disappoint when it comes to its towering cliffs and sandy beaches. For people who are looking for a quick getaway over the weekend or longer holiday time, Cornwall has a lot to offer. Weekenders can spend their time at resorts and spas, sailing, kayaking, and cycling through Clay Trails. If you are looking for an amazing beach location, Cornwall is a perfect choice. There are also adventure parks, wildlife parks with exotic animals, and lots of water sports including canoeing.

Isle of Harris

The Isle of Harris (a Scottish island) is another top choice for a beach holiday destination in the UK. The Isle of Harris is in the southern part of Lewis and Harris and is known for its mountains, compared to the other islands surrounding the area. It is famous for its beautiful landscape where rugged mountains meet sandy beaches. The thousand-year-old exposed rocks are unique and a refreshing contrast to the otherwise peaceful and tranquil feeling of this island.

The Peak District

The Peak District is in central England and is famous for its National Park. It is only 3-4 hours away from London and is an excellent place to spend your holiday. There are guided walks available where you can get access to amazing landscapes and wildlife. Or try your hand at some of the cycling activities or rock climbing for those who seek a more adventurous holiday. Why not stay at one of the cottages located near the Peak District National Park?

Scottish Highlands

The highlands are the top attraction when visiting Scotland for a holiday. The best way to enjoy this trip is to go on hikes and walking tours. Pack a light bag and plan a day tour of the Isle of Skye, it will take your breath away. If you can’t get enough of the beautiful scenery, check out the extended tours and visit some of the castles and towers. The Hogwarts Express is included in a two-day Jacobite tour so is an absolute must for Harry Potter fans.


Norfolk is an all-year holiday destination where you can enjoy natural reserves, parks, market towns, and seaside resorts. Norfolk is rich in culture, and there are a ton of activities including bird watching, cycling, swimming, and so much more. If you’re lucky to rent a beach hut at Wells-next-the-Sea, you can really enjoy the peace and tranquility.


A beautiful Welsh county with so much to offer, including the Jewel in the Crown that is Tenby with it’s famous harbour, the only UK coastal national park, castles, beaches and so much more. Go seal watching or see the amazing puffins on Skomer Island, or have a day at Folly Farm and Zoo to see the only giraffes and lions in Wales!
