Many small businesses across the UK have set up rental businesses offering a very high standard of accommodation in the countryside, and in towns and cities, throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

In England, there are holiday cottages available in popular seaside locations including Cornwall and Devon, with availability in the larger towns and cities too. Yorkshire is a popular choice, as are destinations in the North East with easy access to the historic city of Durham. For a real treat, book a large well furnished country house with self-catering facilities for up to 24 people - ideal for family gatherings and business group meetings.

Traditional English holiday activities can be centered around self-catering cottages - riding, walking, bird watching, visiting the numerous historical buildings and tourist attractions throughout Great Britain.

In Scotland, rental properties vary from castles to cottages - traditional crofts and highland rural retreats offer a stunning taste of the country, perfect if you're looking for the realistic experience. Those considering going to Wales will find beautiful country cottages and romantic honeymoon lodges nearby rolling fields and solitude. Popular locations include the Isle of Anglesey, Carmarthenshire and the North Wales Coast. Wales has a fantastic secluded coastline for seaside holidays, with sandy beaches - a childrens' paradise.

For some people, a UK self catering vacation is changing one domestic situation for another - these people should consider hiring a cook for their holidays - many of the larger properties will rent the house with a cook or cook/house keeper - allowing the clients perfect hospitality and no cooking! Ask the cottage owners if they can provide a local cook. Bed and breakfast or half board accommodation is also sometimes available for some of the vacation properties. © 2004 - 2012
