What's on your holiday wish list? A place to stay in a rural setting full of charm and character? Outdoor activities like walking, cycling, riding and fishing? Village fetes, agricultural shows, real ale pubs and farm shops? Somewhere to have fun with the family, chill out with friends, even celebrate your honeymoon? A country cottage holiday ticks all kinds of boxes whatever the time of year.
A country cottage for every season...
Springtime in the countryside conjures up images of
flower-scented meadows, cherry trees laden with pale pink blossom,
lambs frolicking on the hillsides and pleasantly mild temperatures
for enjoying the 'great outdoors'. Summer brings with it
lots more daylight to sample even more, including evening walks
with your four-legged friend and alfresco suppers in your country
cottage garden. As autumn approaches, the great British harvest
arrives with apples, pears and other delicious goodies ripe and
ready to relish at an array of local festivals. Come winter, a
country cottage could be a place to relax over the festive season,
away from crowds and sofa sales!
Choose from converted barns dressed with designer trimmings to
cottages with beams and roaring log fires, all handpicked with
care in the UK's most idyllic spots.
Please find below a selection of country cottages in
