Best locations for a 6-bedroom holiday cottage


Looking for some inspiration? Here’s our shortlist of the best locations for a six-bedroom holiday cottage.




Relax by the coast in the gorgeous southern county of Cornwall. Famed for its long stretches of golden beaches and dramatic coastlines, there’s no better place to enjoy a family break by the seaside. Enjoy a week of sunbathing and sightseeing, with the call of seabirds and the rolling waves as your holiday soundtrack. Of course, a holiday to Cornwall is only complete after tucking into a tasty Cornish pasty!

Best nearby walk: The scenic and circular Fowey Hall Walk allows you to make the most of your picturesque surroundings. Spanning four miles, it should take you around two and a half hours to complete.



North Wales


The home of mountains, castles, and glorious coastlines - you’ll find it all in North Wales. An excellent location for families and groups of thrill-seekers, there’s a whole host of activities to be enjoyed here. From mountain climbing to zip-lining, there’s something to keep everyone entertained while away! Be sure to scale the heights of Snowdon while you’re there - there’s even a train service to the peak if you don’t feel like walking.

Best-known for the picturesque Lake District National Park that resides within the heart of the county, Cumbria is a popular choice among families and groups. While the region is excellent for keen hillwalkers, foodies of your group will also find plenty of interesting attractions.
