A Thriving Cottage Industry; from Cornwall to Scotland, There Are Holiday Homes to Suit Everybody


WITH its dramatic coastlines and wild landscapes, Cornwall is one of the UK's most popular holiday destinations.

Warmed by the Gulf Stream, it has a fabulous range of cottages along both its stunning coastline and in the isolated interior.

The Cove, overlooking super-scenic Lamorna Cove, is a cross between a hotel and a self-catering complex. Selfcatering apartments sleep between two and six and there are full hotel facilities. There is no shortage of activities from scuba to surfing, and you can enjoy some magnificent coastal walks.

Another fabulous Cornish property is Carn Towan, a house divided into four lets at Bishop Rock, Sennen, offered by Cottages4You, which has more than 10,000 UK properties on its books.

Neighbouring Devon, like Cornwall, has two coastlines and some truly wild countryside. Bovey Castle is set in ravishing country in Dartmoor National Park. It comprises not only hotel accommodation but a number of threestorey lodges dotted over the estate that sleep up to eight. Currently, there are seven-night lodge offers starting from [pounds sterling]399 per night.

Dorset's Jurassic Coast is breathtaking. Dorset Coastal Cottages offers a number of properties including the bargain thatched Apple Tree Cottage, close to Lulworth Cove, which sleeps six and can be booked for as little as [pounds sterling]490 per week. For something right on the coast, there is Ower Cottage, which sleeps ten and has fabulous views over Poole Harbour.

The New Forest has always proved popular with visitors and Halcyon Holiday Cottages has several New Forest retreats that sleep between six and 30, so you can invite extended family and neighbours.

The Cotswolds is another highlight for visitors. Cottageline offers the 17th Century Box Cottage in the charming village of Shipton-under-Wychwood, which sleeps four, from as little as [pounds sterling]325 per week in winter to a reasonable [pounds sterling]535 in summer.

Owners of many cottages often provide welcome packs, which usually include local produce. The holiday homes normally come equipped with flatscreen TVs, DVDs, wi-fi and fully-equipped modern kitchens with bells and whistles.
