Riverside and Waterside Holiday Cottages

Riverside and waterside holiday cottages

Waking up to the gentle trickling of water and the sight of birds fishing for their breakfast is unbeatable, which is why guests love our riverside holiday cottages. Being near the water isn't just great for wildlife spotting, it can be a great place to fish, paddle with the children or just relax on a warm, sunny day.

Our wide selection of waterside cottages range from luxurious executive cottages, with interiors designed by the likes of Kate Moss, to romantic hideaways perfect for proposals or anniversary celebrations. At Rural Retreats, we really do have something to suit every occasion.

Riverside cottages across the UK and Ireland

Whether you're thinking of exploring County Cork in Ireland or escaping to the charming Cotswolds, we have riverside cottages across a huge number of locations. You could travel to somewhere you've never been or visit an old family-favourite. Either way, we can suggest places to go and things to do.

Nature on your doorstep

If you're looking to reconnect with nature, staying at a holiday cottage near water is the way to do it. Lakes, rivers and canals offer a quiet serenity that's hard to find anywhere else. We highly recommend looking up the local wildlife before you go away, so you know what birds and mammals to look out for!
