National Trust Holiday Cottages offer a wide variety of cottages, farmhouses and even lighthouses where you can spend a long weekend or even up to three weeks enjoying some of the best sights that the United Kingdom has to offer. The accommodation covers nearly every corner of the country and whether it’s a romantic break or a family affair, there is something that would suit every occasion. Here are a few cottages worth checking out:

The romantic weekend away: Cornwall

Penhaligon’s: This cute thatched-cottage with wooden beams and a fireplace is nestled away in a secluded area, yet remains close to the vibrant Towan Beach and delightful Porth Creek.

Triggabrowne Cottage: As a former farmer workers’ cottage it has a large garden, panoramic views and easy access to walks along the coast and in the countryside.

The family holiday: Norfolk

Watermill Apartment: A spectacularly converted watermill with high ceilings that is within close reach of many family-orientated activities and day outs such as Hunstanton pier and Holkham beach.

2 Horsey Barns: This beautiful open plan barn offers families the chance to spot nearby wildlife as well as visit the nearby stunning coast.

The Lighthouse: Devon

The Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage: It goes without saying that this unique cottage accommodating up to 10 people boasts striking views of the sea and a series of hairpin roads winding through the National Trust moorland. If you are lucky there is even the possibility to spot dolphins and porpoises!

Some places are very popular so need to be booked in advance ahead of time. Others may start unusually in the middle of the week and it’s always worth checking ‘Important Information’ to find out about accessibility and further features of the property. Finally make sure to also check out ‘Special Offers’ for discounts and ‘Last Minute Offers’ for a spontaneous getaway. Take a look for yourself at National Trust Holiday Cottages.
