Despite their off-the-beaten-track location, remote holiday cottages are equipped with essential amenities such as heating, cooking facilities, and bathroom facilities. Others may offer more luxurious features, such as hot tubs or fireplaces. Some cottages may also be pet-friendly, allowing travellers to bring their furry friends along for the adventure.

When choosing a remote holiday cottage, research the location and amenities to ensure that it meets your needs and preferences. Additionally, be prepared for limited cell phone service and Wi-Fi connectivity in these remote locations, so plan accordingly.

If remoteness is too daunting, consider a secluded holiday cottage with a private garden or a long drive where guests are unlikely to be overlooked by screened from their neighbours (if they have any). Enjoy the feeling of remoteness without being somewhere remote!
