Original Cottages

Unforgettable UK holidays start here! Original Cottages’ portfolio of self-catering properties covers the best coastal and countryside destinations in Britain.

Want to explore the UK’s coolest and most beautiful places? Self-catering is often the most affordable and flexible option and these guys have got you covered – wherever in Britain you’re headed.

Original Cottages has a vast portfolio of properties in some of the UK’s most sought-after destinations as well as lots of lesser known spots, you may have yet to discover.  Original Cottages brings together all of the wonderful holiday homes within their family of regional agencies – from Yorkshire and Suffolk to Cornwall and Wales – which enables them to offer a personal service despite how much of the map they cover. The emphasis is on superb customer service and truly local knowledge.

Narrowing down your search on the Original Cottages website is easy – you can view properties by location or by theme – coastal, family-friendly, large groups, romantic and many more. And there’s a handy star rating system to help you understand the level of luxury to expect. That said, every property on the site is hand-picked and has to stand up to Original Cottages’ high standards.

Properties range from the simple and affordable to the super luxe, so there’s something for every budget and don’t forget to check out their Journal before you go, for lots of ideas for things to do on your holiday.
