Small holiday cottages for quieter breaks

Exterior of West Challacombe Cottage

We have holiday cottages of all shapes and sizes but if you’re after a cosy hideaway then our smaller holiday cottages could be the perfect place to stay. We’ve chosen a few of our favourites, from idyllic country retreats to cottages in the heart of stunning estates we look after.

The Potter’s Cottage at Castle Ward in County Down is a quaint stone cottage with an open fire and has immediate access to the estate and shores of Strangford Lough. Stay at the Victorian Laundry, a first floor holiday apartment over the Victorian Laundry at Beningbrough Hall near York and you’ll have the run of the walled garden after hours.
The Triumphal Arch, one side of the entrance arch at Berrington Hall in Herefordshire, has views across Capability Brown designed parkland which you’ll have access to at all times. You’ll also be spoilt for scenery at Bird How, a rustic cottage high on the fells at the head of the Eskdale valley in the Lake District.
For a seaside bolthole West Challacombe Cottage near Illfracombe in Devon has coastal walks starting from the front door and a cosy wood burning stove to come back to. The Edwardian Longstone Cottage near Mottistone Manor Gardens (to which guests have free entry) on the Isle of Wight has far-reaching views over the island’s countryside.
You’ll find each of these holiday cottages and the many more small hideaways we look after a haven of tranquillity for your next break. What’s more every booking helps us carry on our work looking after special places, for ever, for everyone.
