Self-catering holiday cottages in remote locations

Searching for a remote self-catering break in the UK?  England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland all have their own remote areas where you can get far away from it all and find some peace.

Remote places can be particularly appealing if you enjoy wildlife watching.  In those areas with less people, very often you find that animals can be freely found.  Remote breaks can also be appealing for the peace and quiet that they promise.  If you travel far from the crowd and popular resorts, you may just find unspoilt places that you can quietly enjoy.

When it comes to remote self-catering holidays in the UK, Scotland and Ireland in particular may appeal.  Both of these countries are more off the beaten track.  Wales and England for many though are more easily accessible.  Even in England, a relatively highly populated country, if you search hard enough you can find remote retreats, hidden away deep in the countryside.
