Cottages

A cottage offers the quintessential holiday - quiet and relaxation coupled with home comforts (and mod-cons), character and charm by the shovel, and the liberty to do and eat as and when you want that comes as part of a self-catering experience. There are cottages everywhere across the UK, Europe and beyond just waiting to be discovered by holidaymakers - in locations from rugged West Wales and the islands of Scotland to the rolling fields and hills of France and Italy and the southern coast of Spain - and all those we offer are guaranteed to ensure a stay with a minimum environmental impact.

Discover what you can do on a cottage holiday in one of the UK's most popular destinations, Cornwall and find out about eco-friendly cottages on the Emerald Isle in Irish travel writer Catherine Mack's list of top green holidays in Ireland, and her green holiday recommendations in England and check out what cottages made the Green Travel List.
