Just Show Me Cottages By A River

Adore the sound of water? Or, perhaps you're a keen angler in search of a new fishing spot? Then try our cottages to rent near a river, the ideal base for a relaxing cottage getaway.

Here in the UK, we're blessed with some truly beautiful rivers, streams and waterways. If you agree, then take a look at our riverside holiday homes. We've cottages to rent near many of the UK's most beloved natural waterways, including the River Tweed in Northumberland, the Wye in Herefordshire, the Fowey in Cornwall and the Severn in Gloucestershire.

Book your stay in a riverside holiday rental today!

A holiday cottage by a river provides a great base for a variety of different holidays. If you're the adventurous type, having accommodation close to a river means you'll be able to indulge in all kinds of aquatic escapades. Think kayaking, rafting, canyoning and canoeing- the list goes on!

Alternatively, if you prefer things a little more sedate, our riverside holiday rentals prove perfect for those who are just yearning to relax with a glass of wine. Just imagine, dining alfresco in the grounds of your holiday cottage on a summer's evening with nothing but the sound of the nearby river to distract you.

And of course, our cottages by a river are great for a fishing holiday. Try your hand at hooking cod, pike or salmon as you tote your rod into the cool waters of the local river, before returning to your cosy holiday home to cook up a fishy treat for the family- What could be better than that?

Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages located near a river.
