Small and Cosy Holiday Cottages for 2-4 Guests

The UK has hundreds of small holiday cottages – from cosy cottages for couples seeking a romantic getaway to character cottages for a family of four. Find them in leafy rural retreats or beach apartments within hearing distance of the waves. Here on My Favourite Holiday Cottages, let us help you find a rich selection of small self-catering holiday cottages with one or two bedrooms in all kinds of special and secret locations. Small cottages are perfect for couples of any age for a romantic break or for young families with pre-school children during term-times when there is a lot more room on the beach. As you are self-catering, you won’t be tied to hotel mealtimes ; cook - eat - feast whenever you like. For couples with children, there's no need to endure share bedtimes with your children as you do when sharing a single hotel ‘family room’. Instead enjoy the home-from-home luxury offered by a small family friendly holiday cottage with a complete suite of rooms – not to mention a private garden.
