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

Why Riverside Holiday Cottages?

Here in the UK, we're blessed with some truly beautiful rivers, streams and waterways. If you agree, then take a look at these riverside holiday cottages. Choose a riverside holiday let to rent near many of the UK's most beloved natural waterways, from the River Tweed to Fowey River.

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

Alternatively, these riverside holiday lets 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.

Places to Visit Near Cottages by the River

There is an abundance of destinations where you can enjoy riverside holiday lets. Venture to sunny Cornwall, where you can find relaxing getaways near the River Tamar, Truro River, East Looe River and beyond! Alternatively, enjoy an action-packed break in a national park, like the Peak District, where the River Derwent and River Bradford provide fantastic watersports opportunities.

Enjoy a riverside holiday of your dreams at these spots:

Devon

Lake District

Norfolk

North Wales

Types of Waterside Holidays

There are plenty of other waterside getaways to enjoy, aside from riverside holiday lets! Why not embark on a fishing holiday, where you can angle the days away? Alternatively, enjoy a holiday cottage by a canal, where walks and narrow boat experiences await.

If you still haven't found what you're looking for there are plenty of other cottages in the UK to choose from!
