Remote cottages don't necessarily mean inaccessible cottages miles off the beaten track. There are many corners of the UK which where guests can feel miles from anywhere, but are still within easy reach of civilisation in the form of a nearby pub or village shop. Consider a country cottage in Shropshire, a County with the lowest population per square mile in England, or an isolated cottage or farmhouse tucked away in a corner of a National Park such as The Yorkshire Dales or Dartmoor.
If remoteness is too daunting, then consider a secluded holiday cottage with a private garden or a long drive where guests are unlikely to be overlooked by or screened from neighbours (if they have any). Enjoy the feeling of remoteness without being somewhere remote!
