All about holiday homes from Welcome Cottages

Welcome Properties

With Welcome Cottages, the adventure starts the moment you get into your car.

At Welcome Cottages, we know that everyone is looking for something different from a holiday, and that's why we offer a brilliant range of hand-picked cottages, farmhouses and lodges right across Britain. Whether you’re after a romantic city break, a rural family retreat, or a week of beach cricket with friends, we feature thousands of properties for you to choose from.

We believe that a holiday isn’t the same unless everyone can come that's why Pets Stay Free* with Welcome Cottages.

Our selection of cottages have also been carefully chosen for their unique characteristics, home comforts and stunning locations and each one has been graded by our team of experts to the exacting standards of our in-house grading scheme, taking into account the property's ambience, style, location, age and character plus, of course, the amenities it offers.

There are a number of features to help you choose your holiday cottage, including searches by date, region and party size, to properties with a games room, barbecue and a pub nearby.

When you reach your property you'll also find a guide to events and places of interest, and the owner or key-holder will be close at hand if you need any help or advice.

Our advisors are waiting on 0845 268 0817 to take your booking or answer any questions you may have. You can also make your booking or search the website for more information about our featured holiday homes, including additional images, previous visitor comments, virtual tours and maps.
