Unusual and Unique Holiday Cottages.

Stay in a holiday cottage thatís unusual, unique and quirky and try something a little different this year for your holidays. Let us help you by taking a look at some of our fantastic collection of unique and unusual cottages.

So when you think of a cottage that has unusual, unique and quirky features, what do you look for.  Perhaps it’s the cottage location, from wild and remote to being perched over a lake or perhaps it is the cottages decoration and facilities, from an indoor spa pool to a hot tub with glorious views.  The challenge for you will be deciding which cottage to choose.

Some of the most visited cottages can be found in Cornwall.  Cornwall with its wonderful beaches and good weather is steeped in folk lore and legends, so it’s no surprise that there is a vast choice for unique holiday cottages.

Colhay Studio is a luxurious cottage for two providing a peaceful and relaxing retreat in a unique and unusual way.  With lovely gardens with water features and furniture, a woodburner for cooler nights and your four legged friend can go to, you can’t ask for more.

Northumberland is a close second for our popular destinations.  With miles of unspoilt beaches and countryside, stunning castles and magnificent coastal villages.

Across the causeway from Northumberland is Holy Island.  When staying in Lee Cottage you will be able to experience total peace and tranquillity as the island is cut off from the mainland twice a day by the incoming tide.  Staying in this grade II listed fisherman’s cottage you can explore the charming island and all of its delights and cross the causeway to discover the further delights of Northumberland.

For a five star treat in an unusual and unique accommodation then The Retreat has it all.  Having come first in a competition in the unique retreat category, The Retreat is perfect to stay when celebrating a birthday or anniversary or simply just spending romantic time as a couple.  This one of a kind cottage is detached, spacious and the perfect place for a special and luxurious stay.

The Lake District is always a popular destination with visitors enjoying the magnificent scenery of one of the most beautiful region of England.  Here you will find the perfect landscape for some unusual and unique cottages. 

Boathouse Duke of Portland is a unique, iconic, luxuriously appointed boathouse, situated at the top of Lake Ullswater.

Voted the best waterside retreat by BBC Country file magazine, the location is beautiful and your stay here will be romantic, with everything you need for a fabulous break.

Wordsworth Barn in Ullswater proved a popular prize in our competition last year.  This five star 17th century barn conversion is in an idyllic location.  It retains characterful original features throughout, including exposed oak beams and areas of exposed stone.

Once owned by the well -known poet William Wordsworth, Wordsworth Barn offers luxury ‘boutique’ style accommodation for a truly romantic break. 

Fancy getting away from it all then take a look at the Orkney Islands. From sampling the locally produced whisky to exploring this beautiful part of Scotland.

The Slap in Burray on the Orkney Islands is set in a working croft overlooking Scapa Flow, Churchill Barriers and the island of Copinsay.

The cottage is authentic, steeped in history, with modern comforts to make your holiday special and to have a real experience of Orkney.

Pembrokeshire is known for its awesome coastline providing wonderful walks along its coastline and beaches.

Blaenpant Cottage in Rosebush is situated on the slopes of the Preselli hills.  Found in the Pembrokeshire National Park and with limited light pollution, you will see a fabulous sky at night when you stay here.

Blaenpant Cottage has been tastefully renovated and still keeps the original character of the original building.  Small but perfectly formed, the cottage provides everything you need for your cottage holiday.
