Top 10 destinations for cottages
Finding the cosiest holiday cottage rentals
Often associated with rural beauty and old-fashioned appeal, holiday cottages offer a peaceful holiday unlike anything else. Whether you’re in search of a romantic getaway or a cosy spot to rest after a day of sightseeing, HomeAway cottage rentals have something for everyone.
Lake District cottages
Home to some of England’s largest lakes and tallest peaks, the Lake District is a region that boasts natural splendour, outdoor adventure and peaceful holidays, making a cottage a great choice for a rental property. HomeAway Lake District cottages can be modest or luxurious, complete with modern creature comforts that keep you from roughing it too much and close proximity to the best that the Lake District has to offer. Take a ride on a steamboat in one of the tranquil lakes or climb Scafell Pike to see how this magnificent landscape inspired the likes of Beatrix Potter or William Wordsworth. Adventure and culture can be found within the towns in the area, ranging from the vibrant Kendal to the historic Cumbria, before retreating to the quiet and privacy of your peaceful cottage for some rest and relaxation.
Located on the southwest tip of England, Cornwall is the land of seafaring, beautiful beaches, tropical gardens and some legendary tales. This rugged area has dramatic scenery, historic markets, quaint fishing villages and hundreds of golden, unspoilt beaches. Like the land itself, Cornwall cottages can be quaint and traditional or decadent and expansive, giving you the option of panoramic views of the North Coast white-sand beaches, the rocky cliffs of the Lizard Peninsula or the idyllic atmosphere of the Roseland Peninsula. Many HomeAway cottage rentals can be found near the most popular and intriguing sights in the area, such as the harbourside pubs, gourmet restaurants and historic museums like Cornwall's Regimental Museum and the King Edward Mine Museum.
Cottages with hot tubs
There’s nothing quite like taking in the natural scenery in a hot tub, especially in the cooler weather of autumn or winter. Private cottages with hot tubs are the perfect spot to unwind after a long day of sightseeing, or on a holiday designed for rest and relaxation. Many cottage rentals on HomeAway come with private hot tubs offering views of the rocky coastline, hidden coves, sandy beaches, rugged cliffs or lush moorland, giving you an opportunity to reconnect with nature and yourself. In addition to hot tubs, several rental cottages also come with amenities like game rooms, outdoor fire pits, or indoor fireplaces, providing a bevy of entertainment and relaxation options for solo or group travellers and catering to a wide range of budgets. A quick search is all you need to find the perfect cottage with a hot tub to appreciate the scenery.
