Rural and Countryside Holiday cottage accommodation

As we are called Find Cottage Holidays you are sure to find lots of countryside cottages on this site but that is not all. Our rural and country self catering accommodation listings also include apartments, lodges, chalets, bungalows and holiday homes. If that's not enough, how about country homes, historic buildings and a selection of lighthouses to choose from?

What is a country break?

So what do we mean by countryside or rural breaks anyway? Well we use the description to apply to our superb self catering that gets you into the Great British and Irish outdoors. They are not necessarily for those that don't like to leave the city or be removed from all the City conveniences! However, don't take it to mean that are all out in the middle of nowhere either, there are lots of great country cottages that are part of breathtaking scenery and yet close to popular cities, towns, events and attractions.

Country cottages with style

Among our country cottage selection you will find self catering with great features such as a hot tub, an open log fire, a four poster bed or a swimming pool. And whether, you are traveling as a couple, family, large group or with a pet dog we can accommodate you all on a luxury or budget break.
