Seeking the ultimate romantic break? Not only are our holiday cottages surrounded by enchanting landscapes guaranteed to get the heart racing, but many of these special places have their own romantic stories to tell.

Ther exterior of Alder Cottage

Alder Cottage, Crom, Northern Ireland 

Alder Cottage sits at the heart of the Crom estate and is part of a courtyard complex of rustic cottages. With its open fire and large, sunny bedroom, this cottage would make the perfect base for two. You’re on the upper edge of Lough Erne with a slipway for a boat or canoe so bring your canoe and spend your days exploring the area by water.

Looking across at Boatman's Loft, Robin Hood's Bay

Boatman's Loft, North Yorkshire 

Previously known as The Old Coachman's Station, Boatman's Loft is perched right on the sea wall in the picturesque 17th-century fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay near Whitby. This second-floor apartment (above a visitors’ centre) has the feel of an upturned ship with sloping ceilings. Enjoy the stunning sea views, strolls along the Yorkshire Coast and fish suppers just for two.

The exterior of Chapel Lodge holiday cottage

Chapel Lodge, Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk 

This quirky cottage for two is located in the grounds of the historic Oxburgh Hall, home of the Bedingfeld family since 1482. The Bedingfeld’s have a long and fascinating past entwined in the royal love affairs of the likes of King Henry VIII. And during the Second World War, the Bedingfeld’s kindly offered the family chapel to airmen from the nearby RAF base so that they could marry their sweethearts before going back to war.

Lyme Park House and gardens

East Lodge, Lyme Park, Cheshire 

Nestled on the boundary of the Lyme deer park and surrounded by expanses of moorland, East Lodge oozes romance. Lyme was famously the setting for Pemberley in the BBC’s 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Retrace the footsteps of Mr Darcy with a stroll through the expansive mansion and grounds before snuggling up in front of the cottage’s wood-burning fire.

Exterior of Garden Cottage, Polesden Lacey

Garden Cottage, Polesden Lacey, Surrey 

Next to the rose garden in the heart of the Polesden Lacey estate, this ivy-draped cottage offers plenty of romantic inspiration. Guests at the cottage enjoy free entry to Polesden Lacey house or you could venture further afield and go walking in the surrounding 1,400 acres of countryside cared for by us. Polesden Lacey was also the honeymoon destination of King George VI and the late Queen Mother.

Exterior of Rose Castle Cottage, Cumbria

Rose Castle Cottage, Coniston, Lake District 

If you’re looking for a romantic setting where it’s just you, your loved one, and the great outdoors, then Rose Castle Cottage is the perfect fit. With no neighbours on the horizon and few of the trappings of modern life, it’s the ideal holiday hideaway. There are miles of peaceful walks right on your doorstep so you’ll hardly need to get in your car during your stay.

Looking across at the exterior of The Water Tower, Trelissick

The Water Tower, Trelissick, Cornwall 

The Water Tower is a real fairytale hideaway, with a conical roof and circular rooms linked by a spiral staircase. The accommodation is laid out to make the most of views over the Trelissick estate with the kitchen at the top, a sitting room below and a double bedroom on the first floor.

Exterior view of Treledydd Fawr Cottage

Treleddyd Fawr Cottage, St Davids, Pembrokeshire 

Just a couple of miles from both the bustling city of St Davids and the fabulous sandy beach at Whitesands, this lovingly restored detached cottage is situated in the small hamlet of Treleddyd Fawr. A cosy retreat ideal for walkers, a number of footpaths run close by the cottage, including paths linking to the Pembrokeshire coastal path, a real highlight of staying in this area.

White Edge Lodge holiday cottage in Derbyshire

White Edge Lodge, nr Sheffield, Derbyshire 

Surrounded by the wild heather of White Edge Moor, this remote property was once the gamekeeper’s cottage. The lodge has retained many original features, including the unusual location of the kitchen in the former game cellar. If White Edge Lodge looks a bit familiar, then you might have spotted it in the 2011 production of Jane Eyre, where it featured as the home of the Rivers family.
