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!
