Country Cottage Holiday has been providing outstanding self-catering accommodation since 2006. Our cottages are lovingly renovated historic buildings that have been traditionally finished, and beautifully furnished and equipped to provide real luxury and comfort. Ever expanding, our portfolio consists of 12 self-catering cottages.  Most cottages are in secluded, rural areas of stunning natural beauty: near Scarborough in North Yorkshire; near Barnard Castle in County Durham; on the edge of the Dales and the Lakes in Sedbergh, Cumbria; near Inverness and near Fort William in Scotland - Special cottages in very special locations - perfect for a romantic cosy retreat, an active family holiday, or just a peaceful break away from it all.
