Some of our rental properties really do stand out from the crowd and if there's one word to sum them up, it's 'outstanding'.
Perhaps it's an extra-special feature like a private swimming pool or hot tub - just imagine the look on your children's faces as you pull into the drive. Or an amazing interior dressed with all the designer trimmings. It could be a wonderful conversion of a chapel, a barn or other equally impressive building; somewhere altogether quirky and brimming with character. Or just the most comfortable holiday home you could think of, with every imaginable thing taken care of - logs by the grate ready to lay the fire, slippers by the bed to slip into at dawn, dog beds for the hounds, stair gates for little ones and so on.
Our 'outstanding' holiday cottages usually come in fabulous settings too - think flower-filled gardens wrapped around them with superb views of coast or countryside. They may even be situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
They're the kind of properties you won't want to leave, the kind that exceed all your expectations. If you're looking for somewhere truly special to stay, our 'outstanding' cottages won't fail to impress…
