Looking for a relaxing retreat? Consider one of these cosy cottages dotted along the coast and in the countryside of UK and Ireland. Cosy cottages boast charm and atmosphere; think winter escapes and crackling log fires. Or summer breaks and rose-scented gardens or pretty patios decked with flowers.

Why Cosy Cottages?

This array of cosy cottages may offer interiors that brim with character features such as low-beamed ceilings and stone-flagged floors. Plush sofas, sumptuous bedding and, of course, the flickering flames of a woodburning stone are very likely to make appearances in this collection of cosy holiday cottages, too! And, when it comes to exteriors, the properties may come whitewashed, painted in attractive pastel shades or left in natural stone, more than likely hewn locally.

Cosy cottages often tend to be on the smaller side and are ideal for couples and small families, though some do sleep more and cleverly retain that charming ambience. So, after embarking on a long hike through the countryside, exploring a historic town or enjoying a beach day, this array of accommodations will envelop you in their tranquil interiors and tasteful décor. Want to find activities to enjoy before retreating to these lovely bases? Check out our UK Travel Guide.
