Ideas & Inspiration

There are countless holiday cottages all over the world so it’s no surprise that many of them fall into the category of being just a little dull and generic. But these days we all want something more from our holiday properties, which is why there is such growing demand for unique holiday cottages – places which offer us something different, something distinctive, something memorable. And this demand has led to a significant increase in the number and diversity of unusual holiday cottages, so it isn’t like looking for a needle in a haystack anymore, it’s just a question of knowing where to look and what to look for.

The greatest thing about unique accommodation is that it comes in so many shapes, sizes and styles – there’s something to suit everyone! Saying ‘unusual holiday cottages’ to one person might conjure up images of a thatched chocolate-box English hideaway, with an Aga, a log burner, exposed beams and slate floors. On the other hand, another person might immediately think of a Scottish loch-side retreat – isolated and remote on the outside, yet done up like a luxurious 5-star spa on the inside. Your idea of unusual holiday cottages might be a cluster of renovated barns set around a traditional French farmhouse courtyard. Mine might be a simple, rustic cabin surrounded by unspoilt Spanish or Portuguese countryside. Geographically, unique holiday cottages could be anywhere.
