Small holiday Cottages

Whether you’re planning a romantic break for two or a relaxing solo escape, our collection of small holiday homes could be perfect for you. Cosy and intimate, these one and two-bedroom properties are just the thing for escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Something for everyone

One of the joys of these intimate breaks is that you only have yourselves to please! Whatever you’re looking for, from cosy cottages with open fires to modern conversions with striking views, there’s something for everyone in this selection. Why not treat yourself to your own private hot tub or sauna? Or for a truly unique experience, take a look at our quirky shepherds’ huts, castles and lighthouses.

Many of our properties are dog-friendly, so you can enjoy your relaxing escape with your four-legged friend at your side.

Good things in small packages

Just because they’re smaller, these little holiday homes still have the luxurious standards you’d expect from any one of our properties. In fact, some of our most sumptuous and romantic holiday cottages can be found here; perfect for honeymoons, anniversaries and other special occasions.
