UK holiday cottages for JuneOk, so you might not jump for joy when you wake to raindrops on the window, but let’s face it – June’s as good a month as any to book a break at home. The schools have broken up in Scotland (the holidays usually begin around 25 June), and the weather is, well, more pleasant than usual. It can get as high as 22°C in the furthest reaches of southern England, topping off in Scotland at a moderate 17°C. There’ll only be six hours of sunshine per day, but hey – you can’t expect anything too great from our wet and windy isles right?

Wrong (I'll keep the cockiness to a minimum!). When you’re out hiking in the hills, boating on the river, or simply enjoying those summer-bloom scents, you won’t worry about a spot of drizzle; there’s too much fun to be had. Snuggling up in front of your wood-burning stove, you’ll soon find renting a UK cottage was the best idea you ever had. 

 

June holiday cottages in the UK’s loveliest locales


   

June holiday cottages in Suffolk June holiday cottages in Suffolk

Are you a seaside sunbather or adventure seeker? Crazy about cathedrals or all about the wildlife? It doesn’t really matter (and no one’s crazy about cathedrals), because Suffolk’s a diverse place for a cottage holiday. The county’s awash with market towns and dense woodlands, great for tourists looking for jam-packed breaks. Cycle through Brandon’s Thetford Forest (with its Go Ape tree-top attraction), watch the sunrise on the UK’s most easterly beach at Lowestoft, or get lost in the 19th-century maze at Somerleyton Hall.

June holiday cottages in Northumberland June holiday cottages in Northumberland

With its coast and National Park, Hadrian’s Wall and the North Pennines, there’s no doubt Northumberland offers you more to see and do than you could ever accomplish in a week. So, you’ll have to choose – and what’ll it be? You’ve got two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to consider, religious sites like Lindisfarne Priory to visit (well, that’s a must – Holy Island is spectacular), and Kielder Water & Forest Park to traverse. The latter has England’s largest planted forest, home to 150 million trees. That’s a whole lot of climbing to do...

June holiday cottages in Torbay June holiday cottages in Torbay

From north to south, and the indescribably beautiful Torbay. Set on the South West Coastal Path, it encompasses Paignton, Brixham and – of course – Torquay. But while most people associate the area with its beaches, there’s a lot more to cottage holidays than seaside fun in the sun (though admittedly, that’s enough to please me!). Ever heard of Cockington Village? You should have – it’s one of the most photographed in the UK. With thatched buildings dating back to the 14th century, it really does deserve the word ‘picturesque’.

June holiday cottages in Carmarthenshire June holiday cottages in Carmarthenshire

Otherwise known as the ‘Garden of Wales’, Carmarthenshire is one of those places where unwinding is almost obligatory – but don’t let its beauty belie its fascinating past. An ancient place where Welsh culture never died, it’s rife with myth and legend. Oh, and castles – don’t forget the castles. Carreg Cennen; Dinefwr; Kidwell; Llandovery: the list really does go on, and they’re all riddled with little passageways. Prepare your double-l sound (place your tongue to say ‘l’ and blow through it!), and get ready to go Welsh for the week.

June holiday cottages in Argyll June holiday cottages in Argyll

The last time I was in Argyll, I ate my bodyweight in oysters – and it was tremendous (though incredibly greedy, I’ll concede). I watched hermit crabs fight for new homes, took long walks and saw too many birds to name. I wanted to travel to the Isle of Gigha – but the weather wasn’t quite right. In June, this won’t happen; it’s an ideal time to go. When back at your cottage for a night beside the fire, you’ll realise how wonderful it is to do, well, nothing. This is a place to explore on your own steam. And if you don’t fancy finding your own dinner (which you easily can, trust me) head to Loch Fyne oyster bar – it’s worth making the trip alone.
