Luxury and 5 Star Holiday Cottages

For a holiday that includes something a little different when it comes to accommodation, treat yourself to a luxury property that can provide a unique getaway. While many hotels offer a high degree of service, luxury holiday cottages provide plenty of space and privacy. Many properties at the luxury end of the market, offer all the facilities and sumptuous interiors of a boutique hotel, so why not enjoy the best of both worlds! Hot-tubs, cottages with pools, stylish kitchens with sparkling granite, state-of-the-art bathrooms and spa facilities are just a few of the things you can enjoy, all to yourself in a luxury self-catering cottage. It doesn't just stop at facilities either, many owners can arrange private chefs for that special candlelit supper, champagne chilling upon arrival, beauty treatments for some extra pampering, daily servicing of the accommodation and even breakfast delivered to your front door!

Enjoy a luxury holiday

Whether you' re looking to treat your partner to a romantic weekend away in a luxury lodge or want to give the family a holiday they won't forget, Independent Cottages has a wide selection of luxurious self-catering holiday cottages available throughout the UK. Many are Five Star rated and those that aren't have photographs that speak for themselves. Booking direct with the owner through Independent Cottages avoids unnecessary booking fees. You pay the best possible price allowing you to enjoy luxury at more affordable prices!

We have large luxury houses for celebrating a special occasion and if you are worried about the cost, you will be surprised how affordable it is to sample a taste of the 'high life' when you split the cost with friends. For animal lovers, we also have a great choice of pet-friendly accommodation at the luxury end of the market, so there is no need to compromise on quality, just because you are taking your four legged friend away with you.

If you are a discerning traveller or just fancy staying somewhere that offers that little something special, take a look at our luxury self catering accommodation.

Tips: Everyone's idea of 'luxury' is different so make sure the property ticks all your personal 'luxury' boxes before booking. You will be amazed how well equipped luxury properties are - fluffy bathrobes, capsule coffee machines and luxury toiletries are just a few little extras that may be provided, so find out what is offered to save taking unnecessary items from home. If you are booking pet-friendly accommodation, make sure you confirm the number of pets before booking and find out if there are any 'house' rules that your pet is expected to adhere to whilst in the cottage.
